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.

But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.

Genesis 6:8

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

This statement reminds me of what God told Jesus at his baptism — "... in you I am well pleased" (Luke 3:21-22). Even in the middle of a culture steeped in sin when Noah lived, Noah was blessedly different! God found Noah's heart loyal to him and suitable for Noah and his family to be a blessing and to provide the world with a future. Living with righteous character, gracious compassion, and faithfulness to God is hard in a world in rebellion to him and his ways. "But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD." May the same be said of each of us in our day as we live for God in a world so devoid of his light. Let's be that light in our jobs, schools, neighborhoods, friendships, and recreation. Can you imagine the difference we would ultimately make if each of us decided to be like Noah?

My Prayer...

Loving Shepherd and Holy God, please bless me as I seek to passionately live a life that pleases you and brings you joy. Please use me and my church family to make a difference in the world for good. In the name of the LORD Jesus, I pray. Amen.
