A Circuit Mission event was held at Monton in October 2015. The event was led by Rev. Rod Hill. The work of the Circuit was reviewed, and discussions took place to consider our future mission. Each Church had a display of its current mission and outreach activities.



At the beginning of the new Methodist year (September 2015), we welcomed Rev. Clare Stainsby into the Circuit. Clare came from her previous churches in Scarborough, and has pastoral charge of 5 of our Circuit Churches - Patricroft, Boundary Road, Wesley, Glazebrook and The Height. We look forward to her contributions to Circuit life.
