We are the umbrella and accountability organisation for Methodist Churches across southern Greater Manchester, north Cheshire and north-east Derbyshire. We have about 130 churches and projects.
Our aim is to work towards our future under God as a smaller, but more diverse, active, and growing church, while continuing to resource, communicate and celebrate for today.
We place a priority on values of Justice, Partnership, and Mutuality. We are committeed to solidarity with and inclusion of those who experience marginalisation.
Our purposes are those of the Methodist Church in Great Britain, and more locally include: providing organizational support to Methodist Churches within the District; working with circuits to provide a missional and strategic overview of ministry teams and buildings; promoting a diverse, active and growing church; and embracing the need for change and endings.
