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.

All the churches have a Sunday morning service, with Junior Churches for the youngsters, and some also provide services of evening worship. You can be assured of a warm welcome at any of our places of worship, so please feel free to join us, whether you are a local resident or ‘just passing through’.

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.
