Methodism in Lincolnshire is alive and well.  We have a rich heritage, a purposeful present and an exciting future.
The birthplace of the Wesleys is now a county of 160 Methodist churches. 

We proclaim the Gospel as we have received it; we seek to work alongside others in meeting the needs of our diverse and wonderful communities, from inner city to rural hamlet, and we look to what God has in store for us as we plan for a future with Christ at the centre.

Bruce Thompson (Chair of the District)

New Website for District Link with South India

Did you know that the District has a partnership link (along with the Diocese of Lincoln and URC churches in Lincolnshire) with two Dioceses in the Church of South India?  Our link is with the Diocese of Tirunelveli and the Diocese of Tuticorin-Nazareth, both at the very southern tip of India, and over the years we've learnt and prayed about church life in India.  You can read about the link on the new website

Methodist Collection of Modern Art

LENT RESOURCE 2016

07 January 2016

A Lent resource, published in partnership by the diocese and Lincolnshire Methodist District, is now available.

undefined

This resource contains reflections, prepared by Bishop Christopher and The Revd Bruce Thompson (Chair of the Lincolnshire Methodist District), based on works contained within the Methodist Modern Art Collection - http://www.methodist.org.uk/static/artcollection/index.htm

From the 12th of February until Easter Day 2016, Lincoln Cathedral is to host the Methodist Modern Art Collection, offering people a valuable opportunity to see works from the Collection at first hand. The Collection in Lincoln is also set to host three of the works, and ahead of the exhibition an introductory film has been prepared to help set the scene.

This film may be viewed at:

Arrangements are being made for the Lent resource to reach parishes well ahead of Lent, and in the meantime it may be viewed at: http://issuu.com/dioceseoflincoln/docs/2016_lent_study_guide

Chaplaincy Training Course

Have you ever considered becoming a volunteer Chaplain?  Lincolnshire Chaplaincy Services will be running an introductory evening followed by a training course in the coming months in North Lincolnshire. 

There are a variety of places where volunteers would be welcomed although at the moment LCS is specifically looking for suitable people for chaplaincy in GP surgeries across the more northern parts of Greater Lincolnshire and for Humberside Police.  Another course will take place in Lincoln in the coming months.
