        What do we Believe?

The Methodist Church is a mainstream Christian Church. There are certain emphases in the Methodist culture which make it distinctive.

‘All can be saved'
Methodists hold an inclusive theology; no one is beyond the reach of God's love.

John Wesley became aware of an immense sense of 'blessed assurance' at his conversion. The certainty of Eternity with God.  

Living a holy life
We are asked to surrender our lives to God's will. 'Social holiness' is important.

An Covenant with God
We celebrate a special Covenant service annually, usually at the new year.

‘Born in song'
Singing our faith has always been important to how we worship but also learn our faith. Charles Wesley wrote many of well-loved hymns.

A grassroots movement
Ordinary lay people have always played a major part in running the Church.

Small groups
Methodism began in the context of small groups of Christians seeking to take their faith seriously and apply it to their lives. We reflect using scripture, reason, tradition and the experience of God in our lives. Also known as The Methodist 'quadrilateral.

 The Bible
The Methodist founding documents emphasise a call to 'scriptural holiness'
