"The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission."
The above quotation is from the national web site of the UK Methodist Church in the UK (http://www.methodist.org.uk) and expresses succinctly what we try to do. You will also find an introduction to Methodism, on that site.
There are around 6,300 Methodist Churches in Britain of which we are one. These churches have links with a about one million people in the UK and a total membership of about 350,000 (we have 30ish of them). Worldwide, the figure is around 70 million. It would be surprising if they all believed exactly the same thing!
They don't! But they all claim to be on a journey in which they feel, however weakly, that faith has a part to play, and that Jesus has some part in it. We doubt if anyone has all the answers, but we may be able to offer clues about next steps on the journey. You may also have doubts or concerns about Christianity and the Church. So too do many of us!
We invite you to undertake your journey of faith with us. You are welcome and will not be pressurised or embarrassed.
Meanwhile, you may find the following links helpful. Particularly useful for general information about Jesus and Christianity is the site re-Jesus. The Bible, is available on-line in a variety of translations.
If the existence of God is a concern then http://www.existence-of-god.com/index.html is very good as is www.lookingforgod.com.
For whatever reason you come - you are always welcome.
