Our Mission

Our mission:
Is to encourage and enable people of all ages to become followers of Jesus Christ, and to learn and grow in the Christian faith.

Our conviction:
We are committed to celebrating and sharing the good news of the Gospel—that God loves us, Jesus died for our sins and is risen, and the Holy Spirit gives us strength and inspiration in our daily lives. We seek growth and renewal through the centrality of prayer and scripture, worship and sacrament.

Our mission together:
It is our policy to engage in these things.....
By encouraging mission and outreach as an integral part of the life of every Christian and every congregation;
By offering appropriate pastoral care to those inside and outside the church;
By continuing to develop God-glorifying worship and teaching which is engaging and relevant to people of all ages and abilities;
By recognising that everyone is valuable and has something to offer and by encouraging everyone’s gifts;
By placing a priority on work with children and young people, while recognising the needs of all generations;
By working in local communities to build bridges with those outside church life;
By resourcing ministers and lay staff to work in mission alongside circuit stewards and the congregations of the circuit’s churches;
By working ecumenically and with other circuits where appropriate;
By identifying and resourcing training needs in the circuit;
By prioritising ‘good practice’ in all things including the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, risk assessment, health and safety, employment and trusteeship;
By making sure that the churches in the circuit are well maintained, well resourced and welcoming to all;
Through good stewardship of the money and buildings which have been entrusted to us;
By linking in to District and connexional resources of the Methodist Church.
