Circuit Conference

at Chapel Street Methodist Church, Penzance on Saturday 28th September.

10.00 – 12.30 (Coffee from 9.45)

A united meeting of all 18 Methodist Churches, their Church Councils, and other interested members.

This will be a meeting to suggest radical ways to move forward and not, as we have often done, to bemoan our problems*.

All our churches are different and have their own challenges, but deep down we all know that our churches must change or die. (Dying is an option, and if you are content that your church dies with you because you love it the way it is, this is not a meeting for you.)

But if you are not content that your church will run out of people, and money, and energy, there are real possibilities for change and we will talk about these honestly and openly. If you are prepared to have courage and vision, if you are prepared to hold to Jesus and let a lot of other things go, then He can use this Circuit to grow His Kingdom and He will bless us. Now is all the time there may be, and this is the time to grasp the opportunities that remain.

* Problems like these which need fixing:

Not enough preachers to fill the plan

Many chapels with small and elderly congregations

Problem buildings

Worship that we might like, but no-one else much wants to come to

The same-sex marriage debate

Larger churches with ageing congregations and a dearth of new Christians

Look among the nations and watch.  Be utterly astounded.  For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe though it were told you. Habakkuk 1.5

We are pleased that you are able to join with us today, as we are here to worship our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.  If you are on holiday, we welcome you and ask that you will please take our greetings back to your home church.   The service this morning will be taken by Rev Robert Amess, and the service this evening will be taken by Rev Edwin Myers.  We pray that both the Speakers and hearers will receive a blessing from the Lord.  The Lord’s Supper will follow the service this morning, and all who love the Lord are invited to join with us at this special time. Lord’s Table Servers to be Barry Stevens and Alan Rose. There is a basket in the foyer to receive offerings for the Food Bank.
