Circuit Information

Since September 2012 Harrogate & Knaresborough Circuits have joined together and are known as: The Methodist Church ~ Nidd Valley Circuit.

We affirm and embrace the ‘Our Calling’ and ‘Our Priorities’ statements of the Methodist Church and in the light of which we set the following aims:

  • Provide imaginative worship and strong Biblical preaching throughout the circuit
  • Ensure that there is appropriate staffing to support and develop God’s work in the circuit
  • Explore new opportunities for mission in our communities
  • Develop our mission and ministry with children and young people
  • Reach out to those in the 20-50 age group
  • Support our mission and ministry with the older generations
  • We support the growth of discipleship and identified mission opportunities within the various communities through the responsible use of resources which the Circuit has available.
  • Work towards becoming a more fully inclusive church

We support the growth of discipleship and identified mission opportunities within the various communities through the responsible use of resources which the Circuit has available.

The Circuit, through the Circuit meeting, Staff and Stewards, will support the growth of discipleship and identified mission opportunities through the effective use of staff, property and finance which is available.

The Staff meet twice a month both to conduct business and to offer pastoral support.

The full leadership team including 6 Circuit Stewards meet alternate months.
