Our Mission Statement

The mission of the Barking, Dagenham and Ilford Circuit is contained within the description of the Methodist Church’s Calling, in that it seeks to enable its local churches to respond to the Gospel of God’s love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission. The Circuit endeavours to realise this policy through managing its resources effectively, stimulating vision and encouraging mission initiatives.
