Ryan With Rachel Lampard

On Saturday the 21st January The President of the Methodist Conference Rev'd Dr Roger Walton and Vice President Rachel Lampard led a study day for the Stoke and Chester District at Wolstanton Methodist church.

The day was focused on what a Church of Holiness and Justice looks like. Various Guest's from across the District were present Including Former Vice President Dr Jill Barber and her Husband the Chair of District Rev'd Peter Barber. Ryan Davies a member of our congregation was also present.

The first part of the day was focused on what factors make a Church of Holiness and Justice. They included;
.A people centred and saturated in Prayer.
.Worship that enables people to face themselves and the reality of the world and in the presence of God.
. A Community that lives as a sign of the Kingdom.
. Mission always alert to issues of need and justice.

This part of the session was extremely thought provoking and got a lot of people thinking about their own lives and their own church communities.

The second half of the day was spent looking at the rules of life for a Christian. One example they looked at came from John Wesley who once said we should "Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can." Other examples included "The Mustard Seed Movement", "The Iona Community" and the rules on our very own Methodist Membership cards. We then took these and tried to apply these to our own lives and the various roles we play within the church.

Ryan, shown in our picture with Vice President Rachel Lampard, told the congregation at Halmer End that the day "Was amazing and that Roger and Rachel were great inspirations. Also a lot was learnt by all present".
