Changes to the Circuit
From September 2019, the Whitehaven Methodist Circuit will merge with the Keswick & Cockermouth Circuit to form a new entity - the Western Fells Circuit.
A new website will be developed as plans for the merger continue, and information will be published here on a new page until this site is ready, click here for more!
Welcome to the Whitehaven Methodist Circuit
In this part of the lovely West coast of Cumbria, our Circuit nestles between the villages of Moresby Parks in the north and Seascale in the south, and includes the towns of Whitehaven, Cleator Moor and Egremont. We are also in a Local Ecumenical Partnership with the Church of England at Kirkland Mission, near the beautiful Ennerdale Water.
Our churches seek to be welcoming - open to everyone whatever their age, race, gender or social circumstances. The majority of our churches have easy access and loop systems for those with hearing difficulties.
We affirm that the Methodist Church exists to:
- increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love;
- help people to grow and learn as Christians through mutual support and care;
- be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice;
- make more followers of Jesus Christ.
As Christians, we seek to work as individual churches, and with other churches and community groups, to fulfil the above purposes both locally and in the wider world, through worship, learning, caring, service and evangelism.
We are sure that you will be warmly welcomed, either as a visitor or if you have moved into the area, in any of our churches, details of which can be found elsewhere on this site. We look forward to meeting you.
Rev Dr Wendy Kilworth-Mason
We are now a Fairtrade Circuit.
