Our Church's Calling

Home » News » Our Church's Calling
AMC Our calling composite

It can be hard to discern what we are called to as individuals, but do we have a calling as God's people, the church? In recent weeks, across the circuit, we have gained from following themed services based on the Our calling priorities of the church. This has enabled us to refocus on all we are called to be as the Methodist church in this place. As a church we are called to worship — not just to 'going through the motions' on a Sunday but to commune with God and each other; to make deep connections of heart and mind that inspire our life and transform our choices.
We are called to nurture faith, to value experiences of learning and to offer opportunities for people to explore and grow their faith. We are called to support those most in need in our communities and to work for justice in our world. And finally, we are called to share the story of our faith with those around us.
