The are a vast number of people involved in the running of the circuit. While some are fully-employed by the church, the majority undertake their duties in their spare time.


Rev Stuart Bell is the Superintendent Minister for the circuit. Each of our churches is led by a minister, this includes both Presbyters and Deacons. They are listed on the page of each of their churches.

Local Preachers

Around 70% of Methodist services are led by a Local Preacher. Our Local Preachers are from all walks of life, both young and old, and each offer something different to the active worship of the circuit.

Circuit Officers

In addition to those who stand up at the front and lead our worship, there is a small army of people who work away behind the scenes.
