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.

 

 

 

"Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Romans 8:39
