The Vale of Aylesbury Methodist Circuit is running a free 'We have a Gospel to Proclaim' event at Stoke Mandeville Methodist Church on Saturday 3 November 9.15am to 3.15pm. There will be free bacon rolls, free veggie rolls and free sparklers!
We'd like you to come and join us at an exciting event in early November. The Circuit Leadership Team have looked at what you said at the Circuit Consultation in June and have arranged two sessions to try to help answer some of the problems you raised. Feel free to come for one or both sessions. 9.15 am Bacon rolls, veggie rolls, tea and coffee 10.00 am Session 1: Talking about Jesus 12.15 pm Lunch break — bring your own sandwiches. Tea/ coffee 1.00 pm Session 2: Growth Plans 3.00 pm Finish 3.01 pm Light Sparklers and go home!
Our meeting in June concentrated on aspects of 'Our Calling' as Methodists. We believe that as Christians we have a unique gift to offer to those who do not know Jesus, and as Methodists we are well-positioned to tell of his love and all he has done for us. Methodism was born amid and because of Evangelism — as a church we are first and foremost evangelists. But — the big But, many of you said in June that the biggest barrier you experience outside the church building is the difficulty of speaking about Jesus to other people. Rev Jill Marsh — District Mission Enabler for the Northampton District — will be joining us for the day and helping us to learn, and to develop our confidence and plans, together. She's told us that one of her favourite things is doing this kind of work with local churches and is really looking forward to meeting you! The day is open to all. Everyone is welcome to either or both sessions.
Oh, and I nearly forgot! Please let me know whether you prefer bacon baps or veggie rolls from 9.15am. Tea/coffee will also be served at lunchtime (but please bring your own sandwiches). There will be no charge for the day but plates will be available for donations to cover costs. Numbers are limited to 70, so please let me know how many places you would like me to reserve for you!
