The Conference voted overwhelmingly to implement a new Church-wide strategy for Evangelism and Growth.
God for All commits the Church theologically, culturally, and financially to deepen its mission to be a growing, evangelistic, justice-seeking, and inclusive Church and is the result of a year-long consultation across the Connexion involving thousands of conversations with leaders, practitioners, and ecumenical partners.
In the context of declining membership numbers, God for All prioritises helping new people become disciples of Jesus, starting new churches, and raising up new lay and ordained leaders to join God in engaging diverse rural, urban, estate, and suburban communities across Britain.
The strategy also focuses significant energy and resources on developing the role of young evangelists, serving communities experiencing marginalisation, expanding the Church's digital presence, and helping Methodists live out their faith in everyday life.
God for All will launch in September with a focused Year of Prayer that will offer the Church's work to God.
