Religion

Regular ceremonies enable people to open themselves to God more fully. They help people to hear God's offer and challenge ever more deeply, and to allow God to prompt and enable them to respond.

Politics

There is a large range of issues where Church should interact with politics in such areas as poverty and inequality, environmental issues, nuclear and chemical weapons and the harm caused by use of drugs and drinking.

Views

Small groups inside the Methodist Church should be developed. Thus all members of “societies” could receive support and be challenged in their faith.
