Methodist Church: February 2018
The need for the Methodist Church to keep God at its centre and to be brave, inclusive and dynamic has been expressed by young Methodists as part of their manifesto to the Church. The manifesto was published following the 3Generate event last November, where more than 1,000 young people aged 8-23 and their leaders discussed the issues concerning them in relation to the Church and society.
Michael Pryke, Youth President of the Methodist Church, said: "Within this manifesto we hear the combined voice of the Methodist young people. This is a call to grow the work of the Church and to develop even more church communities that are accessible, inclusive and working to challenge injustice."
