Methodist Evangelicals Together (MET) seeks to encourage evangelicals within Methodism to read and study the Bible, pray, engage in theological study, participate in decision making at every level of the Methodist Church, and, fulfil their calling as part of the whole people of God within the local church and community.
MET employs the Revd Derek Balsdon as Development Worker to lead retreats, church weekends, Continuing Local Preacher Development, Bible-teaching and prayer events around the Connexion. He can be contacted by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
MET hosts an annual REVIVE Prayer Weekend and an annual Expository Preaching Conference with nationally known speakers. A reception and daily prayer meetings are held at the Methodist Conference. The unique annual Equipping for Ministry Conference provides support for those in ministerial training, probationer appointments and under 5 years of ministry plus spouses and families.
MET publishes three editions of its MET Connexion magazine providing Bible studies, articles on contemporary themes and issues, a daily prayer guide, news on latest events, networking, book and resource reviews and letters.
MET supports evangelicals through an emerging network of District fellowship gatherings and local Bible teaching and preaching conferences.
MET welcomes grants from the Donald English Young Scholars fund. We offer small one-off grants (currently up to £500) to support the studies of young scholars (aged under 40 at the time of application) in any field of theology. As the Fund seeks to promote evangelical scholarship in Methodism, applicants should be in sympathy with the aims (prayer for revival and witness to the evangelical faith) and basis of faith of MET (which affirms the Evangelical Alliance basis of faith).
