Methodist Church looks to boost evangelism

The Methodist Church has launched a national consultation on evangelism.

Methodists across Britain will be asked what evangelism means to them and what they find challenging about it.

The online survey will ask them what they think it means to be called by God to share the Good News and what shape evangelism should take in 21st century Britain.

A consultation day will take place on 27 November at Methodist Church House in London, bringing together up to 80 Methodists from different contexts.

The day will be hosted by the Rev Dr Martyn Atkins, General Secretary of the Methodist Church.

“Some of us feel awkward about using the term ‘evangelism’ or worried about what it might involve,” he said.

“But the reality is that many Methodists are doing wonderful and creative things to share God’s love with their communities.

"We want to affirm that, but also help others to engage more fully with the calling we all have to make more disciples of Jesus Christ.”

Submissions can be made here until 15 October.
