The Anglican-Methodist Covenant

Don’t forget that there has been a Covenant between the Methodist Church in Britain and the Church of England since 1 November 2003.

That said, our Local Covenant here in Kirton was actually signed in Kirton Methodist Church on 13th September 1970!  We were ahead of our time!   Let us keep up the good work of ecumenical cooperation for the future.

Today we warmly welcome all our friends from Kirton Methodist Church with their new minister – The Reverend Ann Lett.

Fr Paul’s new address is The Rectory, Winterstoke Way, Ramsgate, Kent. CT118AG.

Please do all you can to assist the Churchwardens in running the Church during the vacancy. Here is prayer you might like to pray every day:  We remember before you the people sitting beside us now – whose names you know and whose lives you care about. People to be cared and prayed for as fellow members of this extraordinary family of God, and we ask that during this time of uncertainty and change that you help us to work together, building up the church, listening to each other’s doubts and fears, working towards unity.

 Empower each one of us to use the gifts you have given us to create a worshipful and welcoming place. Enable us to share our thoughts openly and honestly, but help us also to respect the opinions of others. Instil in us a vision of the life you intend us to lead and guided by your Holy Spirit, we will be united in love and joyfully accomplish this mission, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

We turn to you to guide us in this time of transition. We need your wisdom, that we might be receptive to change, conversion and growth. We need your grace to redirect our hearts so we may be willing to offer ourselves in joyful service not allowing fear, ignorance or pride to limit the work of your spirit. We pray for the process and look for your leading of a new priest to this our church in the Kirton group.

NOTICE IS GIVEN OF A SPECIAL MEETING OF THE PCC OF ALL SAINTS, FOSDYKE TO BE HELD IN CHURCH ON SUNDAY 11TH AUGUST AT 4-30PM TO RE-VIST AND VOTE ON THE RESOLUTIONS OF THE HOUSE OF BISHOPS REGARDING THE ORDINATION OF WOMEN.

Parishes that receive episcopal ministry from a bishop of The Society are invited to affiliate to The Society.  The provisions in the House of Bishops’ Declaration replace those that were previously contained in the Priests (Ordination of Women) Measure 1993 and the Episcopal Ministry Act of Synod 1993 (for a comparison, see overleaf). For two years from 17 November 2014 (when the Declaration came into force) Resolutions A and B under the Measure and Petitions under the Act of Synod (‘Resolution C’) will be treated as if they were resolutions passed under Declaration. This means that existing resolutions do not need to be replaced by a new resolution immediately. We recommend that there should first be a period of teaching and discussion, so that the PCC is well prepared to take a decision, and that the resolution itself should be considered later in 2015. The ordination of women as bishops means that PCCs that in the past have not felt it necessary to consider a resolution (for example, because their priest was committed only to inviting male priests to minister in the parish) will now need to do so. We hope that this booklet and the supporting materials will be helpful to such parishes, as well as to those that already have resolutions in force. In the Declaration, the House of Bishops has invited us to flourish within the Church of England’s life and structures. Parishes should pass a resolution under the Declaration not as a means of distancing themselves from the rest of the Church of England, but as a response to the invitation to flourish within it.
