Welcome to the Website for Chorley and Leyland Methodist Circuit. 

We are proud to be Members of the METHODIST CHURCH in Great Britain. OUR CALLING was re-affirmed in 2018 and is expressed in the following 4 areas:

                Worship Calling                Learning Calling               Service Calling               Evangelism Calling
                      Worship                             Learning                           Service                           Evangelism

  
Not only does this website inform you about who we are and what we do, it also provides links to the

The Three Priorities of our Circuit
Early in 2017, the Leadership Team of the Circuit discerned the following as God’s Priorities for the work we are called to. They continue to inform the use of our energies and other resources. 
E1000Members of the Methodist Church are disciples of Christ and we are almost a thousand strong in the Chorley & Leyland Circuit! Together we are called to many tasks and need to be encouraged and resourced in this work. Our “Growing Leaders” course is just one way that people are being empowered, but other wider initiatives are in the pipeline.
 

contagious pioneering

 
The Circuit, with District help, are funding a 5 year appointment of a Pioneer Ministry Enabler on Buckshaw from 2018. This is an exciting new work with ecumenical partners. But we hope the creative exploration of such ministry will be catching and all our local churches will be inspired for new initiatives.

 

Schools plusOur ongoing Schools worker project expresses our commitment to working with children. This Schools Plus Priority seeks to expand & integrate work in schools with the important children’s work in churches, including Messy Church. We aim to strengthen existing church/school links through school “Champions" & establish new links with community schools.

Once again the Methodist Church has decided to team up with Roots and the LWPT to produce materials to help you to engage with Bible month in 2020 this time to unpack the book of Ruth.

There is a day in this region, to prepare preachers and small group leaders for the Bible

Look out for our new look Circuit news sheet / magazine. We hope it is one way in which we can keep 
everyone up to date with what’s going on and who’s involved in what.

It now incorporates the Circuit Preaching Plan - an essential document for many Methodists!  - but hopefully our mini-articles and pieces like the Circuit Meeting Digest will keep you briefed on important aspects of Circuit life. With your suggestions (and contributions!) this format could grow. Let’s share good news!
