Welcome to the website of the Liverpool District of the Methodist Church
Although we bear the name of the great city of Liverpool, with all its associations of music and culture, learning, sport and enterprise, the District is much more than the city. We stretch from Southport in the north to Wirral in the south and include parts of Lancashire and Cheshire to the east. Although predominantly urban, the District does include some rural communities and Churches.
It is a varied and vibrant part of the world filled with much to encourage and excite. And this is true also of the Church, where many faithful people seek to follow the way of Jesus. Across the District, Churches are reaching into their communities in service; new ways of worship and service are being explored; and the District seeks to support and encourage them in this.
In recent years the District has engaged seriously with the issues surrounding our more effective use of the God-given resources available to us in people, time, money and buildings. As a consequence we now comprise 9 Circuits for our, approximately, 6500 Methodist members. This is a process which will need to continue as we seek to be ever more effective in our witness for Jesus Christ and our desire, in all parts of the District, to offer to the communities we serve that hope which is God’s gift to the world in Jesus.
I am glad that you have found your way to our website. Here you will find links to many of the Churches and Circuits of the District. As you browse its pages, I hope that you will find what you are looking for. And the welcome that I offer to you now, I know that you will find within our Churches and from our people.
