What are your thoughts on marriage and relationships in the 21st century? The Methodist Church is reflecting on whether we should revisit our understanding of what we think marriage is. Our current definition is that it is 'a life-long union, in body, mind and soul, of one man and one woman'. However, we have all witnessed the changing types of marriage and relationships. So we are asking, Is there a 'norm' now for patterns of family life and how should the Methodist Church respond to changes in society? As a church we believe our mission is to reflect God's love clearly and for all people whatever the family context.
Whilst we are holding a series of consultation meetings within the church, we would like to hear your views, whether you are a Methodist, a member of another denomination, another faith or no faith. You can let us know via our Facebook page or by emailing our minister Reverend Helen Kirk: email@example.com. Thank you in advance for your interest and input.
