Saturday 10th May 2014 saw the launch of Synod Cymru’s “Developing Our Calling” Process at St Paul’s Church, Aberystwyth. Based on the four themes of the Methodist Church’s “Our Calling”, the process offers a framework to help chapels and Areas as we seek to develop our calling over the next four years (see under “Dysgu”/”Learning” on this website’s menu for more information).
The day was led by the Chair of Synod, Revd Jennie Hurd, and Mrs Delyth Wyn Davies, Learning and Development Officer. It began with opening devotions from the Revd James Patron Bell, minister of St Paul’s. Jennie then presented the background to “Developing Our Calling” and the process itself, before Delyth introduced some of the resources that are available to help us consider the first year theme of “Learning and Caring”. After lunch, Delyth led a practical session showing the possibility of using art as one way to develop this theme. The day concluded with a short service dedicating the process to God.
Thanks to everyone who attended and who helped with the day, especially the minister and members of St Paul’s. Delyth and Jennie are available to help and support chapel and Areas with planning for “Developing Our Calling”. Their contact details can be found on this website.
