The Methodist Church has launched a series of practical resources in a bid to better equip churches for evangelistic ministry.
The resources, created by its new dedicated team, will focus on four key areas - a new website of online resources and information, starter grants for new outreach projects, a mission-planning guide to encourage church planting and a Church-wide strategy for growth.
These resources seek to build a commitment to evangelism and growth for the future of the Methodist Church, following conversations with those across the Connexion - The Methodist's church network.
Trey Hall, the Methodist Church's Director of Evangelism and Growth, said: "We heard the call to reclaim evangelism as a core dimension of our mission and identity as a Church and these resources are a direct response to needs and hopes of the many who have engaged with us over the past year."

A Monthly Gift Of £5 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of £5 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
