Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing, chosen us in Christ to be holy and blameless, destined us in Christ to be God's children, and granted us through the blood of Christ redemption and the forgiveness of our sins. Amen.
Based on the Letter to the Ephesians (1st century)
Lord, it isn't easy.
It isn't easy to speak out for you when they don't want to listen.
It isn't easy to live by your story when they don't believe it.
It isn't easy to welcome the stranger when the unfamiliar looks frightening.
It isn't easy to be open to others when they might change me.
It isn't easy to follow you when you go to the wrong places.
Child, it isn't easy.
It isn't easy to walk with me toward Jerusalem.
It isn't easy to trust when you want to direct.
It isn't easy to let go when you want to grasp tightly.
It isn't easy, but rest in me, trust my love and you will be born anew.
Lord, help me to trust you and share your love that the world may be transformed.

The Vale of Aylesbury Methodist Circuit is a mutually supportive group of 18 Churches in the Vale of Aylesbury committed to a common purpose of channeling God's unchanging love for all people in our constantly changing world. The Circuit deploys a staff team of presbyters and lay persons -- under the leadership of Superintendent, Helen Kirk -- that work alongside numerous dedicated volunteers and in ecumenical partnership with churches from other denominations.
And although our churches and chapels vary greatly in age, size and style of architecture all have things in common: a desire to follow Jesus Christ and and to share his love in the communities in which we serve. To this end we offer worship in different styles, opportunities to deepen and share faith and the chance to work together on different projects, along with a warm welcome and genuine friendship. So please take the time to discover more about us here or even better — come and see us in person!
