Through our common life – rooted in our shared identity as Methodists – we seek:
- To celebrate and affirm the presence of God through our life of worship, service and caring;
- To look outwards into the world;
- To work wherever possible in partnership with others;
- To equip ourselves to engage with local civic networks, other churches and faith communities, community groups and individuals;
- To act with integrity and to always offer the best of ourselves;
- To offer to all people the love, peace and justice which is at the heart of the gospel of Jesus Christ:
- Our guiding principles flow from this gospel.
- To accept and not judge
- To welcome and not exclude
- To unite and not divide
- To listen as well as to speak
- To learn as well as to teach
- To give as well as to receive
In all things, to love God and to love our neighbour.
