Lancashire Methodist District

Presidential Year 2020/2021


"As this Prayer Diary is being developed we are in the middle of unprecedented times in our nation and across the world. Everyone will have been affected by coronavirus in different ways but whatever the circumstances of our lives, individually or as a nation, these well-known words of Wesley are hopefully an encouragement to us all.

During our year of office, as we journey around the Connexion, we really hope to be an encouragement to you no matter where you are on your spiritual journey. While travelling, we will be thinking about growth, both personally and corporately and seeking to find ways to help you do both! Richard wishes to engage in this theme particularly from a rural perspective.

Our chosen Bible verses from Isaiah 43:18-19 remind us that God wants to do new things amongst us and to bring life and growth even in people and places that seem to be dry or tired. Our theme also fits with the launch of A Methodist Way of Life.

This is a great tool for our personal discipleship and growth, and also with the Evangelism and Growth strategy, God for All, finding ways to reach out to our communities with God’s love and to make more disciples of Jesus. We are so grateful to you for walking with us on this journey of growth and for your prayer support.

We look forward to meeting many of you through the coming year and sharing some of our Christian journey together."

Love and blessings,
Richard and Carolyn
