Wesley Memorial 2015

For justice, peace and healing

Holy Wisdom,
free us to participate more deeply
in the divine dance of creating, redeeming
and healing our world.

Liberating God,
release in us a passionate energy
for seeking justice;
for investing in peace;
for tending the needs of fragile human communities;
for befriending and healing the planet.

Companion at the well,
help us to draw and to share fresh clean water,
for the health of our bodies, the clarity of our thinking.
and the wholeness of our soul-making. Amen.

Liz Smith, Leeds District Chair

The Methodist Conference's response to the June referendum

response board

On display outside our church:

"The Methodist Church believes that the British Isles are enriched by diversity and celebrates the contribution made by those who have come from other parts of the world.

The Christian tradition calls for respect, tolerance, love of neighbour and hospitality to the stranger. All bear the responsibility of speaking and acting for healing, reconciliation, and mutual respect."

The full text of the statement from the Methodist Conference (July 2016)
can be seen on our notice boards.
