Welcome to the Cumbria Methodist District

Methodist Conference

The Methodist Conference is over. You can still find out what went on by going to the Conference website.

Our Methodist Council rep, Martyn Evans, was one of Cumbria's representatives at Conference this year and his interesting and comprehensive report is here.... 

Martyn will be sharing with us over the next couple of months more of what happened at Conference. 


Richard Teal, Chair of Cumbria District


On a map Cumbria is the bit that sticks out into the Irish Sea just north of Morecambe Bay - about as far north as you can go up the west coast of England without crossing the Scottish border. Cumbria contains the Lake District and lots of tourists. Wordsworth was born here. So was Stan Laurel. We have the highest mountain in England and the deepest lake. We are famous for Herdwick sheep, Cumberland sausage and Kendal mint cake. And we have 118 Methodist churches within 13 Circuits.

Together with the URC and Church of England, we signed a Declaration of Intent in 2011, to work together within our county and beyond. And we've got some great ideas for the future! See more  here... or click on Growing Together - Working Ecumenically in the right-hand menu.
