The Autumn 2017 edition of the Methodist Church’s magazine is now available.

Some statistics hold our attention and really make us think. For example, the eight richest people in the world have the same wealth as the poorest 50% of the global population — that is 3.75 billion people. Membership of the Methodist Church has declined by 35% over the last decade. In each of these examples we might be led to ask the same series of crucial questions: why is this so? Does it have to be like this? If not, how is this trend reversible? What action will we now take to bring about the transformation we seek?
This issue of the connexion examines the most fundamental factor of all when it comes to addressing questions such as these, because it is transformational leadership that crucially makes the difference between progress remaining elusive or entering into fresh trajectories of change for the better.
