Welcome to the Cumbria Methodist District

Autumn Synod

10am Saturday, 13 September (9.30am for coffee) at Brampton Methodist Church.

Agenda and papers have been emailed or posted to all reps. This is anticipated to be another interesting and worthwhile day, with reports from Conference, Growing Together, £500 grants, Argentina and more.... and a great selection of workshops in the afternoon - and the workshops are open to everyone, not just members of Synod! More info 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.
