Mission Planning

To help churches, circuits and districts consider their next steps, a mission planning toolkit can be found on the Methodist Church website.
The kits offers resources to guide and support those who are thinking about and planning the next chapter in their story.

Having a 'mission plan' or 'growth plan' is essential to the health of every Methodist church. 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. Just as each church worships differently, so each church goes out in mission to its community differently. The shape of a local church's mission will depend on lots of factors, such as the gifts and resources of the people who make up that church, and the needs of the community it serves. Some churches are large and have lots of potential volunteers; many churches are small and volunteers scarce. Some churches are rural and some are urban; some are rich and some are poor. We can't all do the same things and we don't need to — but we can all do something. Every church is an essential part of the mission of God and has a part to play.
