Preaching Service

Since its beginning in the 18th Century the Methodist Church has been greatly blessed with itinerant Local Preachers who preach God's Word within a circuit. God raised up Methodism to spread scriptural holiness throughout the land, this is what lies behind it's emphasis on preaching. Local Preachers are people called and equipped by God and trained by the Methodist Church to preach His Word in love and truth.

Preaching Services are always planned in cooperation with the local church. Sympathetic to the local context with contributions of music, singing, readings and prayers often being made by others and led predominantly by a Local Preacher or visiting speaker.
