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.

 

Gracious Spirit dwell with me.

Gracious God, light and guide of all [who] put their trust in you: grant us in all our doubts and uncertainties the grace to seek your will, that the Spirit of wisdom may save us from all false choices and that in your light we may see light; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
