Welcome to the Aire & Calder Methodist Circuit Website

The Aire & Calder Methodist Circuit is a group of 32 Methodist Churches at the southern end of the Leeds Methodist District. Formed in September 2011, the circuit includes the city of Wakefield; the towns of Castleford, Featherstone, Horbury, Knottingley, Normanton, Ossett, Pontefract, Rothwell and their surrounding villages. The circuit covers the majority of the Wakefield Metropolitan District plus a portion of the Leeds City Council area. The circuit is named after the two major rivers that flow through and converge in the circuit. The website is always changing, so please add to your bookmarks and keep coming back to have a look.  The vision of our circuit is based on the calling of the Methodist Church, which is to respond to the gospel of God's love in Jesus, and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission. My hope and prayer is that as we get to know each other, growing in grace and friendship, each church will have this vision at the forefront of its agenda.
