The Wider Context

Church St Martin – Belief - Our faith

Healing the Earth – St Martin’s care for the environment

St Martin’s is committed as a church to make a response to environmental concerns a priority, and to steward our resources carefully and efficiently. This links to the Diocese of London’s Environmental Challenge, which aims to cut the carbon footprint of London churches, in order to lessen the impact of churches and people on the environment and God’s creation. Read the St Martin’s Environmental Sustainability Policy. 

Changing Attitude

The inclusive welcome of St Martin-in-the-Fields attracts many LGBT Christians to belong. For discussion of the issues which most concern us we join with Changing Attitude (Greater London) for evening meetings in the crypt (the Desmond Tutu Room or St Martin’s Hall) at 7.00pm up to five times a year. This group for LGBT Christians, their families, friends and supporters, aims to both create support for attenders and opportunities to change attitudes prejudiced against LGBT people within the Anglican Church and beyond. Recent speakers have included Nicola Slee, Sharon Ferguson, Dilly Baker, James Alison and Andrew Nunn. For further information please contact Revd Clare Herbert at who is the London Co-Convener. This group, with National Changing Attitude , works with the LGBT Anglican Coalition to effect change and increase communication among LGBT Christians.

The Anglican Communion

With its unique position in the heart of London and its long-standing links across the world, St Martin’s strives to play an active role within the wider church.

Through our relationships with churches and individuals in a number of different countries, we particularly seek to encourage dialogue and understanding within the Anglican Communion.
