Helping people in our communities and beyond

The Methodist Way of Life commitments for Learning and Caring and Service include that: 'We will practice hospitality and generosity' and ‘We will help people in our communities and beyond’.

As Methodists, we believe in learning and caring and service as part of our discipleship and there are plenty of opportunities for us to support the Church whether that’s in prayer, the giving of our time or the giving of our money.

Thine be the glory

The celebration of life begins and ends with God. You can play a part in celebrating God's work by making a gift to the Methodist Church in Britain in your Will. By leaving a legacy, however large or small, you are helping the people and communities you care about. Legacies left to the Methodist Church will go into the Methodist Church Fund, which primarily supports the work associated with the decisions of the Methodist Conference, from challenging poverty and injustice to supporting partnerships ecumenically and internally.

Celebrate life with a lasting legacy

We all love a great celebration and remember the good ones... birthdays, baptism, having a baby, buying our first home. Such milestones in our lives reminder us of the gifts and talents that God has given to us and we share them with the people we care most about.

Our generosity is a response to God’s abundant grace, and is demonstrated through our lives and in the decisions we make. It is about our attitude to giving, not how much we give. As we cannot hold on to anything after our death making a will may be one of the most important decisions you ever make.
