The Lancashire Methodist District of the Methodist Church shares in the calling of the Methodist Church to respond to the gospel of God’s love in Jesus Christ and to live out our discipleship in worship and mission.
Here is an audio recording of Rev'd Paul Davis's sermon at his final Spring Synod as Chair of the Lancashire District.
The sermon is based on 1 Peter 2 v. 9, reminding us of our calling as God's chosen people
On Friday, May 6th, the Rev Roger Stubbings recorded an interview with Volodymyr Prokip, United Methodist minister in Lviv, Ukraine. Roger met Volodymyr briefly at the 2018 British Methodist Conference in Nottingham, at which Volodymyr was a World Church Representative.
In this video Volodymyr gives a moving account of how the Methodist congregation in Lviv has responded to the desperate situation of refugees fleeing westward from the war torn areas in the eastern and southern parts of Ukraine, and of the longer term plans they have to help people in the longer term.
For those who may know of Ukranian Orthodox faithful searching for an Orthodox church, there are two churches in Preston - Greek and Romanian - and several in Manchester.
The Godly Play Bus Project is supported by the Lancashire District.
Following a very successful week in a school, we would like to make the Godly Play Bus available to more venues across our District and beyond, sharing the gospel of God’s love in schools and communities. To do this, we need more drivers.
Could you offer your time and skills to part of our team?
If you have a clean driving licence (issued before 1999), aged under 75 years and are able to commit to offering a few hours of your time per month, to drive the bus from Freckleton to the required venue and back, we would love to hear from you! No passengers are taken on the bus.
Driving instruction will be provided on the bus!

Transforming Lives and Communities (TLC)
Transforming means to be changed from one thing to another. A policy document is not meant to be set in stone and fixed. This is especially true if the title is “Transforming Lives and Communities.” The purpose of this revision is to equip the Lancashire Methodist District to prepare for the 2020’s, building on the past yet seeking to be changed as we approach the next decade.

Natasha’s Law is named in memory of Natasha Ednan-Laperouse who died in July 2016 following an allergic reaction to a prepacked sandwich bought from Pret-A-Manger. This law makes provision to ensure all food businesses provide full ingredient lists and allergen labelling on foods that are pre-packed for sale on their premises. These types of packaged foods were not caught by the pre-existing legislation.
