About the West Durham Methodist Circuit

In line with ‘priorities of the Methodist Church’ we seek to communicate and make real the love of Christ for all, both in the church and in the wider community.
In utilising the combined strengths and skills of individuals, the Circuit encourages the practice of ‘every member ministry’.


West Durham Methodist Circuit Logo

The West Durham Methodist Circuit is situated in the west of County Durham, a traditional Methodist heartland in the North East of England. Geographically, it covers a 'banana shaped' area approximately 40 miles across with Crook at the centre and was formed in 2006 from the amalgamation of three former Circuits, Crook & Willington Circuit, Spennymoor & Ferryhill Circuit and Weardale Circuit


It extends from Ireshopeburn (A689), towards the top of Weardale, an area of outstanding natural beauty, in the west, down through Stanhope & Wolsingham, Crook & Willington, Spennymoor & Ferryhill to the historic town of Sedgefield, to the east of the A1 (M) Junction 60.

Wherever you find yourself in the Circuit you are sure to find a warm welcome.
