Ministry Matters

Reverend Pauline Salter, 9 Oulton Way, Stafford.

I think you usually have an article from Reverend Jimi who lives in Gnosall. I’m the superintendent of the Methodist Circuit and share the care of the churches in Stafford and surrounding area with Rev Jimi and the lay workers we employ. So enough of the introductions.

Happy New Year!

At the start of a new year we often have good intentions and New Years resolutions! We are going to get fitter, take up an activity etc. In the Methodist Church the New Year is the time we renew our  promises to God in an act of worship called the Covenant Service. It’s a service which has become popular in the many other denominations.

It’s not just about our commitment to God but our commitment to other people, to the tasks which God calls us to do. It’s about commitment to the church community and the wider community and commitment to family and friends. 

Many New Year’s resolutions are about what we can do to improve our own lives. But maybe this year we could all make a difference to people around us by focussing our resolutions on what we can do for others.

So as we start a new year with new opportunities maybe all of us can look at what we can do to make 2020 be a great year for those around us.

We are a lively and well organised group who tailor walks to your needs, the Wednesday walks are shorter for those who feel a short walk is more their scene, the Sunday ones are longer approximately   miles. You will meet new people and chat as well as walk, and learn about the area in which you live. Please wear sensible shoes and clothes.

All walks start at 10.30am from the appointed start point. Some involve a shared car ride.

Sunday 5th January  Allotment Car Park, Gnosall  Lower Ruele Farm
Wednesday 8th January Moreton VH Car Park  Moreton/Bromstead Heath
