The Methodist Covenant Service
This week's Vine at Home builds upon The Methodist Covenant Service that was premiered on Youtube on Sunday 17th January. In the reflection by Calvin Samuel he asks "Today, we remind ourselves of our Covenant with God. We encourage ourselves by the Providence of God. And we resubmit ourselves to the service of God. Christ indeed has many services to be done, both inside and outside the church. To which ones will we submit ourselves, this Covenant Sunday?"
What are you being called to?
As part of our Covenant Sunday, we begin a new segment of The Vine at Home resources, which will run right through to Vocations Sunday on 2nd May. During each of these sections, we will have a few moments to reflect on our own sense of calling — what is it that God is asking of us today, this week, this month, and beyond?
In this week's Vine Video Alison Ransom (Connexional Vocations advisor) introduces the theme.

ALL WE CAN
All We Can is an international development and relief organisation, working to see every person's potential fulfilled. Focussed on serving the world's most marginalised communities, All We Can is rooted in the Christian faith.
Change happens when we all work together.
All We Can has served the most marginalised on earth for the last eight decades — since a group of Methodists answered the call of refugees in Europe, in the 1930s. Our story is about the inherent value and potential in all people. Whether children fleeing tyranny; communities facing extreme poverty, or families hit by disaster, we answer through partnering with local innovators, projects and churches to unleash potential.
We work with the very poorest communities, and have developed a reputation for doing development differently: pioneering sustainable, locally-owned solutions in response to John Wesley's call to:
'Do all the good you can,
by all the means you can,
in all the ways you can,
in all the places you can,
at all the times you can,
to all the people you can,
as long as ever you can.'
Each month, we highlight the key areas that we invite you to join us in praying for. This month, join All We Can in praying with hope for the year ahead.
This month's prayers are available here.
