The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission. We are committed to growing in Christ both as a body and as individuals, through worship, learning and caring, service and evangelism.
We offer you our hands, O Lord, to do your work; our lips to sing your praise; our life to proclaim your glory and our heart to serve you in our neighbour; for Jesu's sake. Amen.
Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179)
Holy Creator, who gives creation as a graceful gift and donates life to all within it, who holds creation in care and love, and not with domination, who creates each second from nothing and impregnates it with grace, grant that we may see the holiness of each moment and respond to it in love. As creation hints at your goodness and beauty, let us glimpse you beyond it; let us live in thanks and be as holy custodians of all you have given. Amen.
