Stafford Methodist Church

From motorways to rolling green country side and canals the Stafford Circuit is full of contrasts. Our churches are made up of different kinds of people, varied age groups, differing theological understandings and life experiences. We are rich, poor, tall, short, male, female, fat and thin.

We worship in small village chapels, community centres, town churches, old buildings and newer buildings. We have two Methodist/United Reformed Churches (Trinity and St John's) and one Anglican/Methodist Church (All Saints, Milwich).

However different we may be, we worship God, revealed in Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. We seek to be relevant to our community contexts and to make God's love and grace known.

We are served by a team of ordained ministers and lay staff (see the Who's who for more details) and Sunday worship is resourced by local preachers, worship leaders and those appointed to the circuit.

We endeavour to live out our calling. 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. It does this through:

Worship
The church exists to increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love.

Learning and Caring
The church exists to help people grow and learn as Christians, through mutual support and care.

Service
The church exists to be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice.

Evangelism
The church exists to make more followers of Jesus Christ.
