Minister's message

I write my last Minister’s message for The Vine with a mix of emotions, but mainly great thanksgiving! From a personal point of view I want to say a huge thank you for the support Graham and I, and Tom, Jess, Will & Alice have received in countless ways from so many people in our church community during our time here; it’s been a real joy and privilege to share with you in this part of the journey  and to serve alongside you as part of the Droitwich Spa Methodist Church community.   

I also want to thank all of the many people from our church community who’ve given and continue to give their time, skills and money to help build God’s kingdom here in our neighbourhood. At our annual church meeting (ACM) in May we celebrated the diversity and quantity of activities which happen month by month around and beyond the church, as we try to live out God’s call to be disciples in our local community.

You can find details of all the groups who meet regularly around the church community on this website and copies of the ACM reports are available from Janet in the church office.

At the ACM we continued conversations with each other about our Mission and about What difference Jesus makes in our lives, which I hope will continue during the summer and beyond, as we consider as a congregation what commitments we’re willing to make to join in with the Birmingham District’s campaign “Church Without Walls” .

I know that Gary & Gail are looking forward to coming to Droitwich in September, and I pray that they and all of you will be richly blessed by God in Jesus through his Holy Spirit as you continue the journey together.

I believe that as we listen to God’s still small voice, gently guiding us in his way of love, shown in the life, death & resurrection of our Risen Lord Jesus, he will lead us by his Holy Spirit into the fullness of life which is his heart’s desire for everyone. We may all face changes ahead, but we know that change is a sign of life, and “nothing is impossible with God!” (Luke 1:37) 

Blessings always,
