The Calling of the Methodist Church to Evangelism, reflects our belief that the church exists to make more followers of Jesus Christ:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit”
Our 50th celebrations offer an ideal opportunity to:
share this message with our local community
explore our own convictions and how we share them
develop plans for evangelism in the future.
To help us in this endeavour, Cliff College will be joining us from 12-21 June for a mission entitled “Food for Thought” – a title reflecting both the challenge of the gospel and the particular gift of hospitality around which Lyndon’s activities so often take place.
The couple have been members at Lyndon for many years. Indeed Libby will tell you that she remembers the foundation stone of the new building being laid 50 years ago!

They both have a lived understanding that faith is a journey and God will do his transforming work in their lives, both in times of joy, loss and challenge. ...more
