Christians in the Community

What do we mean when we say that we are "Christians in the Community"? To answer this you would need to understand the mission statement of our churches - "Every Independent Methodist Church is to be involved in ministry and mission within the local community, preferably in conjunction with other Christian groups in the area". This means that we are where God has placed us, committed to Jesus Christ, and we love him, serve him - by loving and serving one another.

Feel free to browse through our website and learn a little more about what our group of churches is about.

Model Safeguarding Policy for Churches

We have produced a model safeguarding policy that you can use for your church.  If you would like a copy of this please select the menu option "Resources" above, then select "Advice" and you will find a Microsoft Word document that you can download and use.

Call to Prayer

The Presidents of Churches Together in England, together with their partners Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, are calling the churches to prayer as we approach the date when the United Kingdom is scheduled to leave the European Union.

From Wednesday 28th March to Sunday 31st March, the Presidents urge churches in our nation to find ways to pray, and to enable church buildings to be opened for any in their communities seeking a space for prayer. Churches Together in England supports every opportunity for local churches to pray together and urges Churches Together Groups and other expressions of Christian unity to take hold of this moment to pray together for our nations.

This builds on other calls to prayer from member churches over recent months and reflects the increasing urgency of the moment as Brexit approaches.

In particular, they suggest that, as the Presidents of Churches Together in England and other church leaders meet to pray at 10.30 am on Saturday 30th March in central London, churches throughout the nations may wish to join in similar expressions of prayerful concern for the future of the peoples and nations in the British Isles and Ireland, and beyond, during that morning.
