shaped for mission”
Welcome to the Bristol & South Gloucestershire Methodist Circuit. We are a friendly family of 41 churches and two Methodist / Anglican schools serving communities across Bristol and South Gloucestershire with a membership that spans all ages. We are part of the wider Methodist Church in Britain. Our 2000 members come from many different countries and backgrounds and we aim to help everyone feel at home.
COVID - 19
We find ourselves living in challenging times. In line with Government and Methodist Policy, we have suspended all church services, meetings and groups for the immediate future. During such uncertain times, we need to remember that wherever we are, we are still the people of God and we can continue to worship in different ways than congregating within a building. We encourage members of our congregations to keep in touch with each other and our staff through e-mail and Social Media.
Please keep an eye on our website, Facebook page and the Superintendent's blog so that we can keep you in the loop with any updates and provide you with resources and ideas for prayer and worship.
Currently, we are not able to conduct weddings or baptisms in our buildings. If you suffer a bereavement you should contact your local funeral director who will make the necessary arrangements with your local Methodist Minister. While we are unable to offer a church service during the pandemic we can hold services of committal in Crematoriums or at a graveside for immediate family members.
This is a very difficult time for all of us, so please continue to hold congregations, staff and those members of our congregations working as Key Workers in the NHS and elsewhere in your prayers as we try and church differently over the coming weeks.
Currently, the Circuit Office is closed but the rhythm of our churches continues, office staff are home working and picking up emails.
