To help equip the whole Church for evangelism. This package, 'Everyone an Evangelist', focuses on helping all Methodists build theological rooting, spiritual confidence, and practical skills for sharing faith sensitively and effectively in their networks and communities. There is also a pathway especially for Methodist Leaders

A Methodist Way of Life

A Methodist Way of Life is a way of living. It is how we try to live our lives in response to God's love, made known to us in Jesus. There are postcards, videos, events and other resources to support personal and congregational engagement.

Encounter and Accompanist training

A twelve month, circuit based programme for Christians who have a desire to deepen their faith and increase their awareness of what being a Christian disciple means for their everyday lives and what God may be calling them to do.
Aims to deepen an understanding of vocation in its broadest sense, including ordination, lay employment or service in the church and community, in new or existing settings.
As part of the programme individual participants are matched with an Accompanist.
