This Sunday, 7th January at 10.30am, our minister Rev. Helen Kirk will lead our annual covenant service. As the Methodist church website says, this service "is at the heart of Methodists' devotion and discipleship, and their dedication in working for social justice. In the service the Church joyfully celebrates God's gracious offer to Israel that "I will be their God and they shall be my people". This offer is then extended beyond Israel to all women and men in Jesus Christ, who also provides the supreme example of what it is to live in such a relationship with God. God's gracious offer to us is therefore simultaneously a challenge. If God is committed to us, are we prepared to accept that as reality and commit ourselves in return to God?"
The service helps us to reflect on that and how we might respond during this new year. For more details of the service and its origins, click here.
