Mission & Evangelism

Darlington District’s Evangelism Forum

On Saturday 24 February, a group of people from across the district met at Elm Ridge Methodist Church in Darlington to consider how we can share the Good News within a changing world. The guest speaker was Revd Loraine Mellor, President of the Methodist Conference. Drawing on Jesus’ call to the disciples to fish for people, Loraine challenged us to think about whether we are using the right sort of nets on our fishing trips. There were opportunities to share ideas about what stops us from inviting people along to our events and making the most of opportunities we have.

Within the Darlington District we have an opportunity to engage with the National Weekend of Invitation 15-17 June and invite people to join us. There will be a training day at Elm Ridge on 20th March 2018 2.30-5.30pm to equip and inspire anyone interested in taking part in the Weekend of Invitation.


The District Evangelism Meeting is open to anyone interested in Evangelism. It meets two or three times a year for training, sharing, encouragement and prayer. There is also a Mission Enabling Team in the district. This is a small group who are available to help churches and circuits with outreach and similar events on request.
