Church at the Margins
The Methodist Church is committed to being a Church at – and from – the margins. The potential for transformation, new life, and new leaders exists in all marginalised communities. Whilst there are many kinds of marginalised communities, we have a preferential bias for people and communities facing poverty and deprivation, or those that are vulnerable to poverty and deprivation.
Church at the Margins projects are new Christian communities led by the indigenous leaders, who already have deep knowledge and wisdom about their communities. From that leadership, people across socio-economic classes can imagine new ways of being Church and community together. This movement of new Christian communities will build on the biblical connection between evangelism and social justice.
