Mission statement

Picture of mission statement
We seek to put this mission statement into practice in the following ways:
  
 1.  By holding Sunday morning worship which is varied, led by ministers and local preachers from the Leicester Trinity Methodist Circuit, worship leaders, and the local worship team. Worship reflects Methodist character and principles.
  
 2.  By running regular and one-off activities which embody the love of God, such as: the Saturday coffee morning; Little Angels (parents/carers and toddlers groups); Girls’ Brigade; Ladies Circle; Knit and Natter. 
  
 3.  By deepening our understandings of being Christian, through preaching, prayer, Lent study group, Bible breakfast, membership classes, and our participation in services held jointly through Churches Together in South Wigston.
  
 4.  By following the Safeguarding policies and practices of the Methodist Church.
  
 5.  By a strong commitment to children’s Christian education through Junior Church and The Bang; Girls’ Brigade, baby & toddler group,and assemblies at Parkland and Fairfield Primary Schools. 
  
 6.  By living as an inclusive community, expressed through its ethnic diversity; its willingness to offer marriage for those who’ve been divorced; prayers of thanksgiving for same-sex couples; welcome of people with special needs.
  
 7.  By seeking advice from the Joint Public Issues Team of the Methodist Church and its ecumenical partners, and by endeavouring to support individuals and families going through hard times.
  
 8.  By fundraising and donating to organisations that support others, such as Age UK, Helping Hands, Link to Hope shoebox appeal, Methodist Women in Britain, the Lions’ Foodbank, Kennedy House for those seeking asylum, Compassion International Child Sponsorship. 
  
 9.  By hosting other groups on the premises which serve the community, such as Busy Bugs Pre-School; the Wigston and District Male Voice Choir; Let’s Walk South Wigston; Weightloss Support Group; ShapeFitness.
