Faithful & True

Following a District-wide consultation, the District Synod adopted the document "Faithful and True" at its Synod in September 2021. It acts as the District Policy Statement for the coming five years. Although the document was written pre-pandemic the themes have proven to be just as relevant and valid.

Faithful and True – Beyond 2020 Vision – being a Lincolnshire Methodist in the 2020s
