Strategy for Justice, Dignity and Solidarity
A summary of the new Strategy for Justice, Dignity and Solidarity (the EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) strategy of the Church)
Being Christian, according to this strategy, means:
- celebrating God who made each person in God’s own image
- being disciples of Jesus who treated each person with dignity
- rejoicing in the gifts of the Holy Spirit given to all people.
The 2021 Methodist Conference adopted a new strategy which explains why this is so important and spells out why it is vital to learn from one another so that we can recognise God’s presence more fully in our life together.
The strategy also includes some mandatory actions for local churches, circuits, districts and the Methodist Council. These will help us to live together with a culture of justice and respect for all people.
We are committed to becoming a Church that prioritises justice and dignity for all, especially those who have previously been excluded, and which stands in active solidarity with them.
