Scripture and the Wesleyan Way
June 6 - July 25
6pm, Thursdays, Susanna Wesley Room
Join us and take part in a special small group study. The Bible was central to John Wesley’s faith and the Christian movement he founded. In Scripture and the Wesleyan Way, you will discover a Wesleyan approach to the Bible and the Christian life through a Bible study using Wesley’s own words. In this study, authors Scott and Arthur Jones use John Wesley’s sermons to illuminate the Bible passages at the heart of Wesley’s understanding of what it means to be a Christian. Each chapter explores a key Scripture text and one of Wesley’s sermons on it. Through their insightful and engaging study, Bishop Jones and his son Arthur show how the teachings of Wesley address questions that many of us in the twenty-first century still struggle with today.

The Cupboard in the Narthex
Let's stock the cupboard!
We have an empty cupboard in the Narthex and we'd like you to help stock it.
The Westminster Family Shelter provides temporary housing for families in need. Six families can live at the shelter for a period of up to three months. Each family is responsible for their own food and food prep during their stay, however, frequently their food supplies don’t stretch quite far enough and they need help.
Each week, you can simply bring one or two non-perishable items that will be shared with the families in the shelter. Please keep in mind the kinds of foods that children like and foods that are quick to prepare. Please donate what you can. If everyone donates just one or two items each week, we can make a big impact on the future of these families.
