Our mission

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.

Our mission in the Shropshire and Marches Circuit is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and mind, and to love our neighbour as ourselves by the power of the Holy Spirit in our large and rural community.

With God's help we aim to:

be aware of the differing needs of all our congregations and be prepared to adapt in order to offer mutual nurture and support

be aware of the needs of our Ministers, Lay workers and Local preachers and encourage them in their calling and mission

be aware of the needs of our local neighbourhoods and be witnesses for Jesus Christ within them

accept our responsibility towards the natural world by consciously caring for God's creation

be vocal in our commitment to inclusivity, ensuring our churches are places where all are welcome regardless of gender, race, sexuality, or any other issue which might be considered a barrier

so that we may unite as a Circuit in enabling the worship of God, and be a loving, effective and constantly evolving Methodist presence in our communities.

Prayer of the day

Day and night, we confess your name, O Lord, and proclaim your glory. In wisdom you have made all things and by your Spirit you sustain them. From sunrise to sunset you reveal your majesty, speak peace to our hearts and protect your people. With unending praise, with all your saints, we rejoice in the gift of salvation. 

North African liturgy (3rd or 4th century)

Loving God, you remind us in your Bible that when we find it difficult to pray the "Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words" (Romans 8:26). Thank you for the treasure hidden in these words of Scripture.
When we experience moments in life when we are exhausted by care, ground down by constant negativity, or know that words are not enough to heal the pain, help us to trust in your Holy Spirit.
Help us to see that when we cease from constant busyness, quieten our minds and silence our tongues, it's then we might hear the "sighs too deep for words" and know again the comfort of your love.

Susan McIvor, District Safeguarding Officer, Nottingham and Derby District
