Methodists belong to local churches or ecumenical partnerships, but also feel part of a larger connected community, the Connexion.
This sense of being connected makes a difference to how the Methodist Church as a whole is structured. At its heart is an understanding of the Christian community as the 'body of Christ'. Just as a human body contains different limbs and organs that depend on each other, so we should be close and caring enough to feel each other's pain and delight. We should put the good of the whole body before our own individual needs.
Each day we will provide a number of items as a focus for prayer. These could be related to the Derbyshire North East Circuit, Sheffield Methodist District (of which we are a part) or the wider Methodist Connexion around Britain and the rest of the world. You are invited to use this page each day as part of your personal devotional and prayer time.
