In June 2017, the Methodist Church is encouraging churches and circuits across the Connexion to celebrate 'Bible Month'. This year, the 30 days will be focused on the letter of James.

Host a Great Get Together this June

Gen Z: Rethinking Culture
This is research carried out by Youth for Christ in December 2016, looking at youth culture in England, Scotland and Wales. The heart behind this research is to begin a conversation about what it looks like to take Good News relevantly to Generation Z. Within this research questions were asked in the areas of culture, influence, priorities and religion/faith in order to explore what it looks like to reach Gen Z with the Gospel.
