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.
Each of our churches is led by a minister, this includes both Presbyters and Deacons.
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.
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.
