Welcome to the Cumbria Methodist District

Better at being Church in
every Community

Better at being Church in every community flyer

This little leaflet is now available in every church in the District. Please read it. 

It explains our three Cumbrian denominations' (URC, Methodist and Church of England) proposal for Christian ministry in Cumbria. It will answer many of your questions, it will challenge you and it explains how you can have your say too. You can download it here....

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 115 Methodist churches within twelve 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.
