is part of the DNA of Methodism. We were born to be a missionary movement
sharing the love, peace & hope of God through Jesus Christ to whoever we
meet in whatever circumstances.
of us has a part to play in God’s mission to the world. We may not think we are
‘evangelists’ and that is true - we’re not all called & gifted in that way…
are, though, called to be witnesses to God’s power & grace through the way
we live our lives. Everything we do & say should point people towards God.
Lancashire Methodist district take the call to “… go and make disciples of all

Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

few years ago we spent a year looking at evangelism and seeing where God was
leading us. Amongst other things we produced three resources for churches to
use - a resource
‘I am Sending You’ and a weekly task in which to share your faith. If you and your
church would like to use them again then please feel free to download them
& put them to good use.
events we would like our churches to get involved over the next couple of
months are ‘HALO’ & ‘Here I Am’.
‘HALO’(Helping And Loving
Others) is a time when we are encouraging everyone to go out bless their
community. It could be that you tidy gardens, wash cars, offer free tea &
coffee, organise a tea dance … whatever it is we want you to offer friendship,
service & hospitality in order to make new & develop already
established relationships. If you are interested in how you could get involved
download the flier or get in touch with me.
‘Here I Am’ involves a QR code, smart phone
devices & 1 minute stories of what God means to ordinary people and how he
helps them in their day to day lives. We have printed the code on beermats,
small business cards, A5 & A4 posters. Want to know more? Click on the link
