Religion

The longing for holiness is not about wanting to be 'holier than thou'. It is about wanting the love of God to permeate all of our life, and for that love to be shown through our lives to other people.

Politics

When seeking to address certain political issues, the Church must engage with other denominations to understand their views and needs.

Views

The strongest feature of Methodism is that ordinary people play a major role in the running of the Church.
