Falmouth & Gwennap Methodist Circuit

Our mission statement

The Falmouth & Gwennap Circuit: existing to identify where God is at work, and to join in.

Some information about us

The Circuit comprises congregations in various communities, meeting in chapel buildings, community halls, and Langholme MHA.

Each church has a Church Council, and members, friends and volunteers who worship and serve in their local church and community. Churches are encouraged to work together with other churches and the community.

Our Ministry Team comprises the Superintendent Minister, another Minister and two Supernumerary Ministers. The Circuit Meeting comprises dedicated staff and elected members, working together to enable the work of God throughout our Circuit, churches and communities, seeking to lead, inspire and support our congregations in mission and ministry.

Our purpose

The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission. The Methodist Church continues to discern how to live out its calling in a changed and changing world. The ministry of the Church is exercised as Christians together respond to God’s call and discover and use the gifts which the Holy Spirit has given them. In the church we help each other recognise and celebrate our gifts, discern and fulfil our calling, and resource and sustain our witness in a range of different contexts.

In the Falmouth and Gwennap Circuit, we aim:

  • To practice worship which honours God.
  • To tell the good news of Jesus Christ, and to enable people to share their faith stories.
  • To encourage discipleship, fellowship and learning in congregations and small groups.
  • To care for God’s creation – we are working to become an Eco Circuit.
  • To empower and support ministers and lay people in their gifts and ministry.
  • To practice good financial stewardship, with a vision for growth and sustainability.
  • To engage in activities which speak of God.

In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Romans 6:11

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Just as Jesus died to sin, we also died to sin through our faith as we were baptized. Paul said it this way in the verse before our verse of the day: The death [Jesus] died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God (Romans 6:10). Simply putting aside sin at our baptism isn't going to keep sin away from us. We must embrace Jesus' new resurrected life every day. We should begin each day committed to living for God with our hearts open to the LORD's exciting will for us. Let's keep what is dead and buried from our past in the past. Let's live passionately for God, focused on Jesus and his future for us.

My Prayer...

Sovereign LORD and Loving Father, I want my past life of sin to remain buried and dead in the past. Please empower me to have a vibrant life full of your Spirit and always open to your leading in this new life. Please make your presence and will plain to me as I commit myself to living your will. In Jesus' name, I ask this. Amen.
