"The calling of the Methodist Church is to respond to the gospel of God's love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission."
In this, and in partnership with others wherever possible, the Ripon and Lower Dales Methodist Circuit will concentrate its prayers, resources, imagination and commitments on this priority:
"To Celebrate our diversity of rural ministry, knowing God where we are and to make God known to others."
We endeavour to be a Christian presence in all our communities by volunteering where we can, taking worship into care homes, using our premises for activities such as Soft play, toddler groups, Bible Study as well as worship
Please contact the minister for the relevant church here to arrange your life celebration services. We are always pleased to be with you on life's journey and especially at important milestones
We have a Local Pastor, Catherine, who works in the Masham, Bedale and Snape areas of our circuit. Catherine links into community groups, makes pastoral visits and works along side the Minister.
The Care Homes in our area are well served. Worship Services are prepared, recorded and sent in to be watched whenever is convenient.
