The Jubilee Project – An Overview

amc-cross-leavesAcomb Methodist church celebrated 50 years in its present building, and 270 years of Methodism in Acomb in 2014.   In biblical terms, 50 years is a jubilee, and an encouragement to return home, and start afresh with life.  It was also the opportunity for us to create a vision for the next 50 years of our church and its mission.

Work to form that vision began two years previously in 2012, with a survey of our community, and lots of reflection on what we do, who we are, and what our calling is.

The result of that period of reflection, is our Jubilee Project.  An ambitious plan, to grow in the richness of our worshiping life, as churches together, to serve our communities needs more effectively, to reduce our carbon footprint, to offer a retreat garden space for our city and finally to redevelop our building to serve the future.
