Our Connexion

The Connexion

Methodists are linked together in a ‘Connexion’ of churches, circuits and districts.

The Local Church

The local church is the congregational place of worship, where Methodist members and attenders are nurtured.

The Circuit   

A circuit is a group of local churches, served by a team of local preachers and ministers including the superintendent minister. Our Circuit is Chester and Delamere Forest Circuit

The District 

The district serves a geographical group of circuits and is led by the district chair. Our district is Chester and Stoke on Trent

The Conference

The annual Methodist Conference meets in different places and is the supreme decision making body of the Church. At the start of Conference a new President and Vice-President are appointed to preside over that Conference and spend the year travelling around the Connexion, and abroad representing the Methodist Church.
