The Lincolnshire District is at the forefront of many things in the Methodist Church. We are the first to initiate a District-wide Local Church Pastor Scheme; we are the first to be developing a District-wide Community Health Care Volunteer Chaplains scheme; and we are the first to be engaging in Positive Prevention, a partnership with Police and the County Council in training our ministers, lay workers and officers to be more aware of the issues relating to social media use and abuse.
In addition to these cutting-edge projects we are about to launch our first Sabbath Lincolnshire.

This will be on 18 February, the First Sunday of Lent. It is the day we recall that Jesus managed to avoid the temptation to take the easier route to satisfy himself and chose instead to do as God commanded. On that day we will be inviting people to make the day extra special by avoiding social media, washing the car, doing the garden or the shopping etc. In other words to keep the Sabbath – if only for one of the 52 days in the year.

These are just a few of the ways in which we think creatively about our discipleship and service.

We are realistic about the situation we find ourselves in and offer an authentic approach to life and witness.

Safeguarding District Day Conference 2018

Saturday 30th June 2018 - 10am -4pm 
Moorland Park Methodist Church, near Lincoln

Morning Session: Parental risk factors – what they are and their impact on children and young people.

This session will be for anyone working with children, young people and their families to understand how some of the issues facing parents/carers can impact on their children and wider families. We will consider how this impacts on our ability as churches to offer pastoral support, minister to those who are vulnerable and know when more formal procedures for help are needed.

Our guest speaker for this session is Cressida Zielinski who has a long experience in mental health services and more recently has worked as a Consultant in a unit for the assessment of parents with complex needs, working with Courts to help decide the best interests of their children.

Ministers, local church pastors and those who offer any form of support to families are strongly encouraged to attend at least the morning session.

Mission Shaped Intro

Bookings are now open for the MISSION-SHAPED INTRO course over two days in June.   We hope that this course, in Sleaford, will attract participants from all over the southern half of Lincolnshire.    The MSI course can stand-alone, or can be an introduction to the 18-month full MISSION-SHAPED MINISTRY course starting in Sleaford in September 2018.     These courses are ideal for churches or individuals who feel called to share their faith in their community.
