The York Methodist Circuit is a family of over 1800 people, comprising 36 churches and Christian communities scattered across the city of York and the surrounding countryside.
We are part of York and Hull District within the Methodist Church of Britain. The Methodist Church developed out of the work of John and Charles Wesley in the 18th century and is now a global community of 70 million people. Many of our Churches have been in existence for many decades and some even date back over two hundred years. However, our commitment is to the future, to share the Good News of Jesus and to call people to faith in Jesus Christ.
We have ecumenical links with many other churches, denominations and other organisations across the York area and share together in prayer for the city and surrounding area.
We are led by our Superintendent Minister, Revd. Keith Albans, a ministry team of Presbyters, Deacon, Lay Employees, Local Preachers, Worship Leaders and other local ministries serving in numerous roles to maintain and develop the life, work and witness of each Church and Circuit at home and across the world.
