The process of discipleship aligns our lives to keep following Jesus, and becoming more like him. We do this as individuals and a community by shared spiritual practices and reflecting together. A Methodist Way Of Life expands the Methodist Church’s core Our Calling statement, and provides a rhythm to live life. There are twelve practices that will help us mature as disciples, welcome others into the church community, and be part of a missional church together. Our online and onsite events aim to deepen your discipleship, and help you to to help other people too.
Evangelism: the E-word! A word which can make us feel all kinds of things: excited, uncomfortable, fulfilled, inadequate! However, you feel about it, evangelism is central to our calling to participate in God’s life-changing work. Our evangelism events and gatherings help equip you for evangelism, wherever and whoever you are.
Great change requires great leaders. Investing in all leaders - lay and ordained, paid staff and volunteers - is crucial in pursuing transformation in churches so that we might see transformation in the world God loves. Our transformational leadership events explore the theories and practices of leadership and equip you to see transformation happen where you are.
New Places for New People (NPNP) are projects focused on forming new Christian communities for those not yet part of an existing church. The Methodist Church encourages every circuit to imagine, begin and sustain something new. Our events network people together, equip and enable Methodists to begin New Places for New People in every context.
Church at the Margins is about being church with people at the margins, especially the economic margins of society. We hope and anticipate that 60% of our New Places for New People will focus on people experiencing poverty. Our events support you as you listen, dream, plan and take action.
As Methodists, we want to see more people explore faith and encounter grace for the first time. We long to see every church a growing church: growing spiritually, growing in love for their community and, by God's grace, growing numerically too. In this collection, you'll find events to support your church or circuit with mission planning and community engagement.
Rural mission and ministry is all about being who God calls us to be in the places and communities we are part of and call home. Living in a rural area affects all aspects of our lives, both individually and as community, and this includes how we are church. Small is beautiful - our presence and prayerful witness as Christians in these communities can and does make a difference, but needs resilience. Our #ruralhope events support and inspire rural churches across Britain.
