Welcome to the Bristol & South Gloucestershire Methodist Circuit. We are a friendly family of 40 churches and two Methodist / Anglican schools and outreach and social projects serving communities across Bristol and South Gloucestershire with a membership that spans all ages. We are part of the wider Methodist Church in Britain and working with local churches to become an Eco-Circuit. Our 2000 members come from many different countries and backgrounds and we aim to help everyone feel at home.
The Circuit oversees, supports and resources local churches in living out the Calling of the Methodist Church in the communities in which they serve through the 'Our Calling Groups' :
Worship - to increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love
Learning and Caring - to help people to learn and grow as Christians, through mutual care and support
Service - to be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice
Evangelism - to make more followers of Jesus Christ
The Circuit Office continues to be open on a limited basis, please either email or phone for an appointment 0117 951 7044 to ensure that someone is available.
Rev. Novette Headley, Superintendent Minister
