From the Superintendent:   Winter 2018

Over the past year we have engaged in serious searching.

Circuit Prayer Meetings

We have looked to God across the Circuit in our focused times of prayer. Three quarters of our churches were involved and around 20% of our membership.

Mission Shaped Church

We have taken time to understand where we are in our Theology, Missiology and Ecclesiology.  We learned that what we think about God shapes the way we conduct our mission in and to the world and that this in turn will shape our church.  A fifth of our churches engaged in this adventure and around 10% of our membership.

We have seen signs of Growth

New Church at Hatfield Peverel

Dementia Worship South Woodham Ferrers

Messy Sunday Moulsham Lodge

New Service Times in Chelmsford

Witham Little Gems

Messy Church Trinity

None of the above can be attributed directly to our prayer and study of mission but when we are willing to engage, take time and go out of our way with God, our lives and the lives of our churches and communities begin to change.  As soon as we are willing to say “Why not try….?” We find ourselves walking in the presence of God.
