Methodist Priorities

Home » News » Methodist Priorities
AMC Methodist priorities

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 Methodist Church will give particular attention to the following:

  • 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

This Sunday's service will focus on the first of these priorities — Worship.

We're told it should fill us with joy and gratitude, only to encounter significant chunks that seem irrelevant, incomprehensible...
