Mission Statement 2019

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 2019 we will strive to:

  • Grow in our faith through informal discussions, fellowship and bible study.

 

  • Continue with our quiet prayer time before the service and as a congregation & after the Welcome, opening our hearts to the Holy Spirit and love of God.

 

  • Work towards a more interactive style of family worship, initially once a month, finding opportunities to actively involve our children and use the talents of all our Church family.

 

  • Arrange fun and social occasions when we can all come together as a Church family.

 

  • 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.

 

  • Continue and build on the work of Generations, based on our Pickles principles.

 

  • Support our part-time Community worker and review the hours required for our outreach work prior to the start of the September term.

 

  • Develop relationships with our neighbours, the Circuit, the Parish 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.
