the Connexion magazine

connexion front cover

The Connexion magazine has lots of stries and article from around the connexion! What is the connexion yo ask? Well on the inside cover of the magazine it says " Methodists belong to local
churches and also value being part of a larger community.

In calling the Methodist Church in Britain 'the Connexion',

Methodism reflects its historical and spiritual roots.
In the 18th century a 'connexion' simply meant those connected
to a person or a group – for instance, a politician's network
of supporters. So when people spoke of "Mr Wesley's
Connexion" they meant followers of the movement led by John Wesley.
Wesley believed that belonging and mutual responsibility were
fundamental Christian qualities.
The language of connexion allowed him to express this
interdependence, developing its spiritual and practical
significance in the organisation and ethos of his movement.
Both language and practice are important for Methodists today."

You can find the magazine on line here or look out for copies in your local church
