A Methodist Way of Life – our commitment

In April 2021 the Wantage and Abingdon Circuit is launching A Methodist Way of Life.Thisprovides a set of commitments and practices that encourage and equip people to better live a Christian life.

The commitments are fourfold: Worship, Learning and Caring, Service, and Evangelism. For each there are three ways to live out the commitment.


  • We will pray daily
  • We will worship with others regularly
  • We will look and listen for God in scripture and the world.

Learning and Caring

  • We will care for ourselves and those around us
  • We will learn more about our faith
  • We will practise hospitality and generosity


  • We will help people in our communities and beyond
  • We will care for creation and all God’s gifts
  • We will challenge injustice


  • We will speak of the love of God
  • We will live in a way that draws others to Jesus
  • We will share our faith with others

Questions to ask ourselves and share together

  • What is the pattern of your prayer life?
  • How easy or hard do you find it to pray?
  • What has spoken to you recently in worship or in the Bible?
  • When, lately, have you felt close to God or distant from God?

Learning and Caring:

  • How have you practised generosity since we last met?
  • How have you shown hospitality to others recently?How are you caring for yourself?
  • How and what are you learning now?


  • How are you seeking to serve others in your communities and beyond? What has helped or hindered you in your service of others?
  • How are you caring for God’s creation?
  • How are you using God’s gifts (including your financial resources)?
  • What issues of injustice are you currently concerned about? What are you doing in response?


  • When was the last time you were able to talk about God?
  • What opportunities to share your faith have there been since we last met?
  • How have you responded to opportunities to share your faith?Is there anyone you might invite to consider the Christian faith?
