Bishop Auckland Methodist Church

A Methodist Way of Life

If this appeals to you, and if you would be interested in such a small group based in Bishop Auckland, but accessible through computer technology, then get in touch with Rev John.

Like the early Christians (Acts 2.42-47), we seek to express what it means to follow Jesus in the regular, practical actions of worship, learning and caring, service and evangelism. 

A Methodist Way of Life is a way of living. It is how we try to live our lives in response to God’s love, made known to us in Jesus.

In this sense, A Methodist Way of Life is both new and old. It is new, in that Methodists first discussed such a way at the 2018 Conference, although it is based on Our Calling, agreed in 2000. That, in turn, was built on what Methodists have always done, since the days of John Wesley, in trying to follow Jesus and live out the Christian faith – just as those first followers in Acts did.

“The Methodist Way offers three actions for each of Our Calling’s overarching features. These may offer thought for worship, sermons, or small group discussion.”

The commitments of A Methodist Way of Life remind us of, and provide a compass for, Christian living.
