This is a final reminder that our Circuit Consultation about A Plan for Growth is this Wednesday, starting at 7pm at Stoke Mandeville Church. In the light of a year-on-year reduction in membership of 3.5%, the Methodist Conference has urged all churches to address and answer the question, 'Do you have a growth or an end-of-life plan?
So the Vale of Aylesbury Circuit is challenged to take this opportunity seriously, plan for growth and get excited about the future again; a future that sees our tradition engaging wholeheartedly in the work of Christ in our communities, growing disciples and adapting to the changes necessary to carry out God's will in a way that is relevant and meaningful.
