A Welcome from the Chair of District - The Revd Julian Pursehouse

julian pursehouse

It was a privilege to be appointed by the Methodist Conference to serve as Chair in this district from September 2014. East Anglia is a particularly idyllic part of the British Isles and an area where you can be constantly reminded of the beauty of God's creation.

The East Anglia district is geographically vast and culturally diverse, stretching from the North Norfolk coast to the leafy suburbs of Cambridge and from the flat expanse of the Fens to the bustle of Felixstowe docks! I trust that within this rainbow community you will find a warmth of welcome, an optimism in God's grace and a passion for the Gospel!

The Methodist Church cherishes its place within the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church whilst expressing a particular blend of Christian faith characterized by the desire to sing our faith, a catholic spirit that welcomes all, a systematic and accountable approach to discipleship and a thoughtful engagement with the wider world through justice and social action. I have no doubt that you will find these marks of discipleship amongst the good folk of the East Anglia District.

If you are looking for a church to visit or join in East Anglia then I hope you can use this site to find out more information about the different churches and circuits across the district. In addition you can contact me at the address below.

Welcome and enjoy!
