Event description
How A Methodist Way of Life can enrich your life and ministry as a Worship Leader and Local Preacher, with Roger Walton and Bob Bartindale.

About this Event

“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.”

The SIR are delighted to welcome former President of Conference Revd Dr Roger Walton, author of A Methodist Way of Life, and Bob Bartindale, Officer for Worship and Local Preachers with the Connexional Team. We will also hear from a range of folk who are using a MWOL in their context.

Together we will look at how a MWOL can enrich your life and ministry as a Worship Leader and/or Local Preacher. This will be through the lens of personal spirituality and shared development.
