Sunday Services

We are currently holding Sunday worship services in all our churches except for the occasional Sunday when there is a  joint Circuit Service held in one of our churches.  See the current Preaching plan (Dec 21-Feb 2022) or contact the Circuit Office for details.

There are also online Sunday Services every week at 10.30am, accessible via the internet, or by phone.  Please contact Rev Dan Woodhouse at revdanwoodhouse@gmail.com or 01273 508704 and he will put you on the list, and give you instructions on how to link in.

Winter Focus

This is the winter edition of the Circuit magazine to read onscreen Winter Focus 2022
or to print: Winter Focus 2022

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.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need more information. You can email us at: circuitoffice@brightonhovemethodistcircuit.org.uk

The Circuit

The circuit boundary matches that of Brighton & Hove City Council. Its area of 34 square miles contains 256,000 inhabitants with a population density of 7,880 per square mile. 94.3% of the permanent residents are white of whom 59% claim to be Christian, a figure significantly lower than the national average. The five member churches are home to about 1,000 Christians and are served by three presbyters. Ecumenical links are well established across the circuit.

Circuit Mission Statement
