Our love for each other is based on the principle that all humankind is made in God’s image, and therefore worthy of dignity and respect. In response to the current news stories relating to the Black Lives Matter campaign, we offer the following:
- Statement on racism from the Revd Dr Jonathan Hustler, Secretary of the Conference.
- A personal message from the President of the Methodist Conference, the Revd Dr Barbara Glasson.

From our own Circuit:
- I can’t breathe – a meditation from Rev Christine Crabtree (3 June 2020)
Loving God, give us richness of imagination
to see you in the faces of everyone we meet,
so that we may adore and worship you unceasingly
and enjoy you as we enjoy other people;
through Jesus, lover of all.
