The Mission Portfolio Holder is Rev'd Martin Turner.
This Portfolio links several mission initiatives and concerns, and in particular is charged with considering and recommending the Circuit's overall Vision & Strategy for Mission ('VSM'). Through a process of consultation with individual churches (which is continuing), a Circuit VSM Statement was agreed in March 2017 to establish an agreed framework and priorities. This is being further worked out and implemented through existing Circuit structures and officers, and through four particular task forces.
Linked Circuit Groups & Officers: Vision & Strategy for Mission Group and task force, Housing Estates & Urban Officer, Rural Affairs Officer, Creative Arts Officer, Methodist Homes for the Aged Officer, Methodist Women in Britain Officer
