We are called to be a growing, inclusive, evangelistic and justice-seeking Church

God loves you unconditionallyno strings attachedThat’s the good news.

Every person is made in God’s image and is of equal value

Everyone is welcome

The Methodist Church is committed to Justice, Dignity and Solidarity. We believe that all people are uniquely made in the image of God, and we aim to live this out in the Church and in our communities. 

Sunday Services

We are hold Sunday morning worship services in all our churches except once a quarter when we hold a Circuit Together Service held in one of our churches.  See the current Summer Plan (June to August 2024). There is also a monthly evening Healing Service plus an online service and other ad-hoc services marking special events. All details in the plan. 

Summer Focus 2024

The latest edition of the Circuit magazine is available to read Summer Focus here.
We cover a fascinating and diverse area in the city of Brighton & Hove, and the Methodist churches reflect that diversity and variety. The Circuit has five churches: Dorset Gardens, Hove, Patcham, Stanford Avenue and Woodingdean. Together, as a Circuit we are a small part of the South East Methodist District.

We seek to serve our local communities through a variety of activities – parent and toddler groups, uniformed organisations, youth clubs, lunch clubs for the elderly, leasing our premises to various users, and providing numerous cups of tea and coffee to those who simply call in.

Go to the Churches page and click on each individual church for more detail and location maps.

Its area of 34 square miles contains 277,200 inhabitants with a population density of 8,153 per square mile. 85.4% of the permanent residents are white. 31% claim to be Christian, a figure significantly lower than the national average. There are five member churches and we are served by two presbyters. Ecumenical links are well established across the circuit.
