Our Calling

Our Calling

The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God’s love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission.

The Church exists to:

·       Increase the awareness of God’s presence and celebrate God’s love (Worship)

·      Help people to grow and learn as Christians, through mutual support and care (Learning and Caring)

·       Be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice (Service)

·       Make more followers of Jesus Christ (Evangelism)

 

The Priorities of the Methodist Church

In partnership with others wherever possible, the Methodist Church will concentrate its prayers, resources, imagination and commitments on this priority:

To proclaim and affirm its conviction of God’s love in Christ, for us and for all the world; and renew confidence in God’s presence and action in the world and in the church.

As ways towards realising this priority, the Nene Valley Circuit will give particular attention to:

·           underpinning everything we do with God-centred worship and prayer

·           supporting community development and action for justice, especially among the most deprived and poor – in Britain and worldwide

·           developing confidence in evangelism and in the capacity to speak of God and faith in ways that make sense to all involved

·           encouraging fresh ways of being church

·           nurturing a culture in the Church which is people-centred and flexible
