The Stokesley circuit is situated on the north edge of the North York Moors National Park and comprises a mix of thriving towns and smaller rural villages.
The circuit comprises six churches with the two largest having memberships over 100. We are currently supported by a team of ordained and lay staff and many volunteers.
Our circuit mission statement is 'Growing and serving in Christ'.
We are committed to discipleship and are part way through a two-year Holy Habits discipleship adventure. Through this we are dedicated to deepening our personal relationships with God, relationships within our churches and Circuit and in the wider communities in which we serve.
Each presbyter has pastoral charge of 3 churches, however, we seek to work collaboratively over the whole Circuit as a team.
Physical and Online worship
All of our churches are now open for physical worship, and the majority of our activities have all returned to (nearly normal) . Some of our prayer groups continue online.
Two of our churches, Stokesley & Great Ayton, continue to live stream their physical services every Sunday for those who would prefer to join online. Links to these can be seen on the 'Church Online' pages on this website.
We are part of the Darlington Methodist District and the wider Methodist Church in Britain
