CIRCUIT

WELCOME TO THE PETERBOROUGH METHODIST CIRCUIT OF CHURCHES

A PARTNERSHIP OF PEOPLE AND CHURCHES

Welcome to Circuit. Working in partnership has always come naturally to Methodists - sharing staff and resources across churches is part of our tradition. Our calling is to respond to the gospel of God’s love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission. We do this through Worship, Learning & Caring, Service and Evangelism.

The Peterborough Methodist Circuit comprises ten churches, one house-group and three local ecumenical partnerships; a three way partnership between the Methodist, United Reformed and Anglican Churches and two Methodist-United Reformed Churches. In addition, we have encouraged a number of fresh expressions - new forms of church for our changing culture, established for those who are not yet members of any church.

Enabling Christian Formation...

The purpose of the Circuit Meeting

This is the principal meeting responsible for the affairs of the Circuit and the development of Circuit policy. It exercises a combination of spiritual leadership and administration so that local churches can grow closer and support each other in their mission. This requires us to be outward looking, lead as a team, provide opportunities for worship and nurturing disciples and encourage learning in all its forms. To do this we need effective  governance and legislation.
