There is much to be excited about in the Shropshire & Marches Methodist Circuit. From Knolton in the North to the South's Garway Hill, stretching from Builth Wells to Hopton Bank, the Shropshire and Marches Circuit is geographically one of the largest in the UK.
In our chapels, in their varied locations, you will find Methodist congregations engaged in partnership to provide housing estate outreach; library provision using church premises; alternative worship patterns or mid-week services; ministry through links with schools, residential homes and contacts through church events, while still sustaining traditional forms of church life.
Our Ministry Team involving lay and ordained personnel supported by a centralised administration seeks to provide resources to enable the identification, training and support of leaders and preachers, while encouraging every member to be engaged in the ministry/mission priorities of his/her local congregation.
Our vision is:
The Shropshire & Marches Circuit was formed in September 2010, when the Cwm & Kingstone, Leominster, Presteigne & Kington, Llanymynech, Marches, Oswestry Ellesmere & Chirk, Shrewsbury, South Shropshire, and Wem & Prees Green circuits merged.
