A letter about BAME and BLM from Revd. Dan Haylett sent to all Enfield Methodist Circuit members on 14.06.20


We have learned in lockdown that being the Church is more than attending worship in a particular building.  

In the light of the renewed focus on the violence, injustice and oppression faced on a daily basis by Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people all over the world,
including within our own neighbourhoods and Churches,
we are challenged to ensure our attitudes and actions consistently and defiantly speak out and act against all forms of prejudice and hatred.  

This is surely the work of being a Christian today, to be mindful when we stand in privilege in relation to others,
to be alive to and ready to challenge racism, prejudice and bias in all its forms
and to live in ways that celebrate the truth that indeed Black lives matter.


 

Please see below a statement made by the Methodist Church:

 

Statement on racism from the Revd Dr Jonathan Hustler, Secretary of the Conference:

“The brutal killing of George Floyd, who died at the hands of police officers in Minneapolis, 
has prompted a wave of anger and revulsion around the world. 
As Christian people, we are appalled that someone could die in such a fashion and appalled also at the continued injustice 
which many Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people experience in many parts of the world, including the United Kingdom, 
and in many institutions, including, shamefully, the Methodist Church in Britain. 

We therefore welcome and endorse the call of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement for radical action in addressing the causes of this injustice.

 The Methodist Church in Britain believes that racism is a denial of the gospel. 

However, we have to recognize that we have not eradicated the problem from our Church, despite the excellent work of many over several decades; 
in the last year we have redoubled our efforts to do so and are actively working on the implementation of our ‘Inclusive Methodist Church’ strategy 
which commits to challenging all forms of discrimination and creating a Church 
where people from every background are welcome and are safe from abuse and discrimination.
Such a Church will celebrate and not be afraid of diversity; 
it will be disciplined and uncompromising in its refusal to tolerate any form of racism; 
it will work to encourage the vocation of those from minority groups to serve in positions of senior leadership; 
and it will be one in which all people can be confident of the welcome that they will receive as they share in worship and ministry with us. 
We repent of the ways that we have fallen short of that in the past and of our slowness in changing our ways 
and we continue to look for ways in which we can witness to the all-encompassing love of God 
and become the transformation that we long to be. ‘Only the Spirit’s power can fit us for this hour’: we pray, ‘Come, Holy Spirit, come!’”.

 

We all bear responsibility for ensuring that these are more than words, 
and across the Circuit we are engaging in conversations about what needs to be done better and differently, 
that we might all truly feel that we are indeed one in Christ.   
There is room for each of us to engage in self-reflection, prayer and responsible protest.  
Only in these ways can we truly be said to be becoming the Church we were meant to be"

We are sorry but Trinity Church is not yet open.  


We hope to be able to open in the autumn, but, in the meantime,  
we continue to support one another and engage in worship.  

 

Those who want to participate in a live streamed service can follow that (and find other resources)
online at: www.methodist.org.uk/worship-during-coronavirus




We will continue to produce a recorded act of worship each week, prepared by a member of Staff or a Local Preacher. 
You can find a link to these recordings on the Circuit website here: www.enfieldmethodistcircuit.co.uk
There is also a regular Podcast on the site featuring members of the Staff Team.


Those without internet access or would prefer a printed service with hymns, readings and a meditation/notes for reflection
can ask for a copy by phoning the Circuit office (020 8367 1338) or by emailing:  enfieldcircuit@yahoo.com.  
These texts will also be available through the Enfield Circuit website.




Those in need of urgent supplies, delivery of essential shopping, posting mail or simply wanting a prayer or conversation over the phone
are invited to contact the Circuit office on the same number and email as above.   



We are asking for everyone to keep in phone/email/social media contact with one another to encourage support and prayer.  


Your Ministers and the Circuit Staff continue to be available for phone conversations to offer pastoral support and prayer

 

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you now, and for evermore.

With the love and prayers of all the Enfield Circuit Leadership Team

Our prayer for the week

Calm me, Lord, as you calmed the storm;
still me, Lord, keep me from harm.
Let all the tumult within me cease;
enfold me, Lord in your peace.

Power of God, be our protection;
wisdom of God, be our guide;
word of God, be our inspiration;
shield of God, be our defence;
hosts of God, be our deliverance;
Son of God be our salvation;
now and always. Amen

 Amen
