Committed to Flourishing Missional Communities

to our District

As Chair of the Yorkshire North & East District, I welcome you to our website. With lots of information and resources for churches and circuits in our area, we hope you will find what you are looking for.

We dream of a church whose heart, body and soul is healthy and life-giving; whose very ways of being enable everyone to experience the life and freedom,
that is the Good News of Jesus Christ.  
“I came to give life – life in all its fulness.” (John 10:10)

We dream of the transformation of the land through the growth of diverse, contextually-shaped, passionately-led flourishing missional communities. 
“The churches were strengthened in their faith and grew in number every day” (Acts 16:5)

We know that seeing these dreams become real depends entirely on
God’s grace to transform us – both as individuals and communities.
So, we encourage every person and every expression of gathering to create more ‘space for grace’:

Where the presence of Jesus brings healing and transformation.

Where God’s future story is discerned and brought to life.

As a District, we are enabling this vision to be realised through the work of our Assistant Chairs and the wider District Team:

Church Development

Ruth, our Assistant Chair (Church Development), is focussed on enabling churches to develop and grow in healthy ways.

New Streams

Andy, our Assistant Chair (New Streams), is focussed on supporting, equipping and releasing those who are sensing a call to form new Christian communities.
