WELCOME – whether you are a friend, a stranger, a neighbour, a person of faith, or just curious, you are very welcome to the North Staffordshire Methodist Circuit.

We have 9 active churches situated across the Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough. This area has historically had links with a number of industries but is best known for its links to coal mining and the neighbouring potteries. Many of our churches are located in former pit villages where communities have had to find new ways of identifying themselves following pit closures and the local Methodist churches have played a part in this rediscovery.

Along with our active churches we also have one building, in Baldwins Gate, where earlier this year the congregation made the decision to cease to meet. The Circuit is now exploring what new and creative ways might enable this building to be used within the community and so maintain a Methodist presence in the village.

In the current age we recognise that in order to fulfil our calling to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ and to live out our discipleship in worship and mission many of the things we have been used to doing and the ways in which we do them will have to change. What this may look like as we journey forward is yet to be discovered but we travel on in hope and with faith and trust in God.
