As Christians, we long to share the Good News which Jesus came to tell us. (See 'What do we believe?')
As Methodists, we respond to our Calling to:
Worship Increase awareness of God’s presence and celebrate God’s love.
Learn & Care Help people to grow and learn as Christians.
Service Be a good neighbour to people in need and challenge injustice.
Evangelism Encourage others to follow Jesus Christ.
As members at St. Martin’s, we wish to provide a warm welcome and to serve our community as we seek to reflect God’s love for all people.
St. Martin Methodist Church
Our purpose is to build confident faith in God;
to encourage Christian growth
so that all may know God’s love in Christ,
and to strengthen community life in Jersey.
We will do this by;
Continuing with our thriving "Messy Church" community.
Continuing the outreach of the Friday Club for teenagers.
Arranging regular Café-style services and events to which people who do not attend church regularly might be invited.
To continue exploring opportunities to deepen members' faith and confidence through suitable study courses, whenever possible with other churches.
This year we are joining with the rest of the Circuit in an autumn discipleship course, based on the book "Holy Habits" by Andrew Roberts
hat can I do? ~ Getting practical with our Mission Statement
Think of those family and friends you know who once came to church.
For many people, as life and circumstances change, church gets squeezed out. We are always pleased to find opportunities to invite them to share in special events and services, where, prayerfully, they may again rediscover a meaningful relationship with our Lord Jesus. . .
We invite and welcome families to share in some of the activities on offer . . .
As part of that service to the community, we have a busy "Messy Church", now in its fourth year, that meets monthly, generally on the third Friday of each month in term time.
