Welcome to the Methodist Churches in the
East Solent and Downs Area
Our Mission is to resource and enable the Local Churches of the Circuit to pursue the mission of God through worship, learning and caring, service and evangelism.
The circuit is formed from the amalgamation of the Gosport and Fareham circuit, Portsmouth circuit, and Petersfield, Liphook and Haslemere circuit. It was inaugurated on 1st September 2013.
Each church in the circuit is listed in the navigation on the left. Information on individual churches within the circuit can be found by clicking on the appropriate navigation button. If the church has its own web site, there is a link on the page. A map of the location of each church can be found on our district website. Each of our circuit ministers has their own page.
‘Messy Church’ is run by a number of our churches, information can be found here.
The Plan/Diary page contains:
The Circuit Plan for the area churches covering dates and times of services and who is leading. There is also a calendar of other events.
The circuit has a prayer diary with suggestions for each day of the month, covering the work of God in the churches and all who take part as Ministers, Stewards, Finance and Property Teams, other Officers and the many who contribute in unnamed and unseen ways.
The latest Circuit Newsletter is now available.
TMCP have produced a Privacy Notice for Managing Trustees which gives all the information required by GDPR about how all Methodist Districts, Circuits and Churches are using personal data.
The circuit has set up a ‘document repository’ on Dropbox. Within this, there are folders grouping items that can be viewed by everyone. This includes information on circuit events, church events, past plans and the Circuit newsletter.
