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.
