Durham and Deerness Methodist Circuit Website
Report to Spring Synod 2019
Worship: A variety of worship styles is offered ranging from Café/Discussion services to more tradition forms of worship. Many churches use 'The Vine' resources when faced with local arrangement services. Messy Church sessions are offered churches. Services held in a number of Care Homes across the circuit are greatly appreciated by the residents. Several schools visit our churches for Harvest, Christmas and Easter services. Notes to preach have given to 2 new people.

Learning and Caring: Lent and Advent Groups are held alongside regular Bible Study groups often in conjunction with our ecumenical partners. These attract good numbers of both church and community members for shared learning and development.

Service: Many churches support Foodbanks which serve the local area with a distribution point being created at Elvet. Church buildings are used on a regular basis for community activities, by outside agencies e.g. probation services , support for refugees and self-help groups.

Evangelism: Our churches continue to be used for Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals and we hope they feel welcome and comfortable. Christmas and Easter Journey are firmly established on school calendars and are much appreciated by both staff and children. 'Open the Book' teams are being established across the circuit to take Bible stories into local schools.
