The Burnley and Pendle Methodist Circuit is made up of sixteen Methodist churches.

We are a lively, progressive, forward thinking circuit that is involved in many church and community events.

We hold Christ Jesus at the very heart of what we do.

Within the website are links to the circuit Churches and their events and our core beliefs.

We would like to invite you and your family along, make new friends and see what it's really like to be a Christian in the 21st Century!
