God in Love Unites Us – District Conversations

Many of you will already have engaged in conversations in your local churches and Circuits and we am grateful to all those who have carefully and prayerfully facilitated those conversations. However, we have also planned three District-wide conversations. Details of these, and links to the feedback forms can be found here.

Grants for Learning and Development Opportunities

The District Learning and Development Fund as been set up to support learning and development activities of Methodists in the Sheffield District.
Priority will be given to people who have no other learning and development grant entitlement, especially first time applicants, but applications from staff, including presbyters, will also be considered.
Applications must be received at least 2 weeks before each meeting of the L&D Group; the dates for these can be found in the District Calendar.

Safeguarding Arrangements

Our District Safeguarding Officer, Howard Smedley will be leaving his post on December 31st. We are currently advertising for a new District Safeguarding Officer.
However, during this interim period, please direct all safeguarding enquiries to our District Safeguarding Group Chair, Hilary Murden

Keep Fishing!

We all know that we must keep innovating and learning if our churches are to continue to welcome new people and be truly open to the ever-changing communities around us. But we sometimes need some help, advice or encouragement to get started.
