Welcome to Derby Methodist Circuit

We are a group of 21 churches in and around Derby, including four ecumenical churches and a Chinese-language congregation plus  Susanna Wesley House in Derby city centre  Together with Christians of other churches, we seek to be true to our calling to live as disciples of Jesus Christ, and to witness to the healing power of his love and forgiveness as we serve him in our local communities.
