What is it?
Still in the pilot phase, there will be a phased roll-out of this service across the Methodist Church between 2023-2028
We offer support from a team of accredited practitioners, trained as mediators and facilitators with understanding and experience of the Methodist Church
The service is independent of the Connexional Complaints and Discipline process and can be used whether or not an informal complaint has been made
Who is it for?
The service is currently available in the following Districts: Bedfordshire, Essex and Hertfordshire; Bolton and Rochdale; Cumbria; Chester and Stoke; East Anglia; Isle of Man; Lancashire; Liverpool; Lincolnshire; London; Manchester and Stockport; Northampton; Nottingham and Derby
Anyone in leadership in the Methodist Connexion can ask for support by getting in touch with us e.g., a Circuit Stewart, Circuit Superintendent, Presbyter, Deacon, District Chair
Work in these Districts is fully funded and there will be no cost to your congregation, Circuit or District
“My hope is that this project will enable us to discover new opportunities for positive working together as we seek to enable our church communities and the communities we serve to be places where people can truly flourish in all their diversity.” — Richard Armiger
