A Methodist Way of Life

A Methodist Way of Life is a way of living. It is how we try to live our lives in response to God’s love, made known to us in Jesus.

Like the early Christians (Acts 2.42-47), we seek to express what it means to follow Jesus in the regular, practical actions of worship, learning and caring, service and evangelism.

In this sense, A Methodist Way of Life is both new and old. It is new, in that Methodists first discussed such a way at the 2018 Conference, although it is based on Our Calling, agreed in 2000. That, in turn, was built on what Methodists have always done, since the days of John Wesley, in trying to follow Jesus and live out the Christian faith – just as those first followers in Acts did.

The commitments of A Methodist Way of Life remind us of, and provide a compass for, Christian living.

You can read more about A Methodist Way of Life on the Methodist Church UK website – https://www.methodist.org.uk/our-faith/life-and-faith/a-methodist-way-of-life/what-is-a-methodist-way-of-life/ or talk to Rev. Judith about joining the Zoom sessions within the Cardiff Circuit.

Christingle in a bag

Back in December, members from the church went out and delivered 350 Christingles in a bag onto the new Plas Dŵr estate and around some of the Sidings. This enabled people to make their own Christingle and shed some light and hope this Christmas season. We were delighted to have a large number of people join us on zoom to make them up together.

It was lovely to get so much positive feedback as we went around making our deliveries.

Advent at Radyr Methodist Church

Advent for the church is a time of waiting and preparation.

Have you seen the nativity scene building in the church foyer starring our puppets? We have just placed it there to raise a smile and good spirits and lots of people have been stopping to look which is great.

The church also had an Advent Calendar window slowly unveiling itself on the windows facing the car park so again if you have not yet seen this do come and have a look before it goes.

Radyr Methodist Church collection for Cardiff Food Bank

Cardiff Foodbank

Earlier in December, Radyr Methodist Church organised a collection of food for Cardiff Food Bank with Ruth on Pentwyn and four new members from Parc Plymouth all putting tubs out for food. The response was phenomenal and we were delighted to meet up in the church car park and hand over such a vast amount of goods.

The church plans to hold regular collections so keep an eye out for when the next one is planned – perhaps you could offer to be a collecting station to gather donations from your neighbours.

On Sunday 8th March we held our first Eco-church service involving the seven parts of Creation

Six tables were set up to show light, day and night, the earth and what it produces, wildlife and water. We had great fun and learnt in so many different ways. Then we joined together to consider the Sabbath and what it means to us. We had a fantastic time.
