GOD IN LOVE UNITES US

Discussions took place recently at Greasby Methodist about the Methodist Church’s Report on Marriage and Relationships.

Sufficient copies of the report are now available in the foyer for everyone to have a copy.  Every church is asked to encourage their congregations to study it and meet together to discuss its contents.

To accompany the full Report there is also a shorter Study Guide.  Pick up your copy from the table in the foyer.

A meeting to share together views and comments will be called in due course.
