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)

Fresh Expressions Area Strategy Group

The Lincolnshire FEAST (Fresh Expressions Area Strategy Team) is an ecumenical group of practitioners, strategists and senior Church leaders whose aim is to see the heart and truth of Christianity made accessible to every person in the county through enabling the planting of fresh expressions of church to complement the mission of our existing churches. We are conscious of the widening gap between the Church and much of society and are keen to reverse that as we seek to establish new Christian communities among those who are currently far from church and possibly belief. We are responsible to the senior church leaders of the county within Churches Together in all Lincolnshire (CTAL) for our activities to make sure we are well integrated into and connected with the total life of the Church in the county. There are many FEASTs established around the UK – the Lincolnshire FEAST was one of the first to begin and was initially chaired by Bishop John Saxbee.

There are three main areas of activity we feel we need to concentrate on at present:

Prayer – for the mission of the church, for each fresh expression team, for the work of the FEAST and for more leaders to emerge
Leaders – we want to encourage the churches to enable those with leadership gifts and a sense of Godly adventure to emerge, be recognised, supported and deployed to begin new communities of the faith
Communication – of the vision for the effectiveness of fresh expressions of church and existing churches both working in mission, of stories of fresh expressions of church being established and lives changing, of research results that will aid strategy

Lincoln Faithwalkers

Faithwalkers is a group of people that go on walks once a month. The walks are open to all to attend, but where there are restrictions these will be noted, e.g. for accessibility.

Please remember that whilst children are welcome to join us, they must be accompanied at all times.It is also important that you dress for the occasion, suitable footwear and clothing, etc. Most of the time you will need a packed lunch and plenty of drink to keep hydrated. We walk all year round and normally meet at Burton Road Methodist Church and then travel by car to the walk, if transport is required then no problem give us a call or email and we'll fit you in.
