Mission Shaped Intro

Mission Shaped Intro helps people to reconnect with the communities they are called to serve and to reimagine forms of church that are needed for the 21st century.  The five week course takes you on a creative and reflective journey looking at the need for new ways of being Church. 

The course will run for 5 consecutive weeks from Tuesday 18th September 2018, 7.30pm to 9.30pm at Ryton Methodist Church.  Led by Rev Elaine Lindridge. 

Community Mission Worker (Poverty Truth Commission Facilitator)

An exciting opportunity has arisen for the post of 
  Community Mission Worker (Poverty Truth Commission Facilitator) 
  37.5 hours per week 
  within South West Tyneside Methodist Circuit.  

We are looking for someone who is keen to support the community work of the Methodist Churches in West Gateshead in responding to local needs and issues and has a passion for mission, community involvement and social justice.  There is a genuine occupational requirement (GOR) that the post holder is a practising Christian. 

The Great 50 Days

The Great 50 Days books are now available from Circuit Churches in readiness for Easter Sunday when the daily reflections commence.   

This year the theme of the readings, reflections, prayers and stories is A Life of Mission.  There are 50 daily reflections and each week there is a personal story and space to pause for prayer.  The reflections come from people in every circuit across the Darlington and Newcastle-upon-Tyne Districts and this year the Vice-President and President of Conference have also contributed to the resources.

Our Calling - Questions for the Church in 2018

‘Do you have a growth plan or an end of life plan?’ This was the question posed to each and every church following last year’s Methodist Conference. It arises out of a desire to see the church fulfil its mission and to be faithful stewards of the resources that God has given us. In our Circuit we mirror much of what the wider connexion is facing, with some churches declining in membership and attendance year on year, some maintaining what they have and some seeing areas of growth and potential.

Poverty Truth Commission

The Methodist Church in the South West Tyneside Circuit have been exploring the possibility of establishing a Poverty Truth Commission for the West of Gateshead and we now have the majority of the funds needed to employ someone to work with us to help this become a reality.
