AMC Our calling

In preparation for next Wednesday's Circuit Consultation, our 18 circuit churches have been focusing on the four parts of the Methodist Church's 'Our Calling'.

Previously, we have had Worship: The Church exists to increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love, and Learning and Caring: The Church exists to help people to grow and learn as Christians, through mutual support and care. Last Sunday, it was Service: The Church exists to be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice. This coming Sunday it is Evangelism: The Church exists to make more followers of Jesus Christ.
