Mission Statement 2020

EBENEZER METHODIST CHURCH

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Jersey Methodist Circuit is to:

  • build confident faith in God
  • encourage Christian growth so that all may know God’s love in Christ
  • strengthen community life in Jersey.

For Ebenezer, this means that in 2020 we will strive to:

  • Grow in our faith through informal discussions, fellowship and bible study.
  • Encourage a quiet time of prayer before our service and a moment of silence after the Welcome, inviting the congregation to open their hearts to the Holy Spirit and love of God.
  • Support the work of Pickles and Pickles Plus and bring everyone into Church once a term, e.g. thanks for our Mums, Harvest, Chaos at the Crib.
  • Support Generations and encourage the young and old to enjoy fellowship together.
  • Support Friends@4, sharing in a more relaxed style of family worship and a family meal, once a month.
  • Arrange fun and social occasions when we can all come together as a Church family.
  • Support our part-time Community workers, review the hours required for our outreach work prior to the start of the September term and apply to the Circuit for support.
  • Develop relationships with the Circuit, our neighbours, the Parish, the URC and the School, and strengthen our presence in the local community.
  • Continue to focus on mission giving and support for others locally and in the wider world.
