PLEASE NOTE THAT THE EASTER OFFERING 2020 HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL SPRING 2021. A SHORT SERVICE FOCUSING ON THE WORK OF THE METHODIST CHURCH’S GLOBAL RELATIONSHIPS TEAM DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC WILL BE AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD IN THE SUMMER.
INTO ALL THE WORLD
Th3 2021 Easter Offering service is on the theme of journeys and marks the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower and the 260th anniversary of Methodist Overseas Mission starting in Antigua. Featured in the service are stories of five journeys across time of people who have travelled for different reasons – some in obedience to God’s call on their lives, and others because they had no choice. The worship will encourage us to reflect and learn from those who travel and to consider our own journeys – both physical and spiritual.
Into all the world provides an opportunity for churches, circuits and districts to gather and celebrate God’s mission activity in the wider world. It includes the dedication of the Easter Offering, all of which goes to the World Mission Fund of the Methodist Church in Britain, supporting and working with our 65 Partner Churches around the world.
We are currently working with the Methodist Church to change the date on the current Easter Offering resources for use in 2021; if you have already downloaded materials dated 2020, please do continue to use them rather than wasting them.
