Larger churches - those with 150 or more attendees - have particular joys and challenges that are not always shared by smaller churches. No two 'larger churches' are the same, of course - some prefer contemporary worship, while others are more traditional; some are in city centres and others in suburbs; some are found in affluent areas and others among people experiencing poverty. Nevertheless, larger churches share certain common features, and the network of ministers of larger Methodist churches is there to share wisdom, encouragement and resources with colleagues facing similar challenges.

The next gathering for ministers of larger churches will take place on Zoom on Tuesday 7th May 2024, 1-2.30pm. Please email the Evangelism and Growth Team for further details or to be added to the mailing list.
