Our District

District Map

The Yorkshire North and East Methodist District has been created from all the circuits of the old York and Hull District, and two circuits from the old Leeds District. It was launched at a service held at Ashville College, Harrogate on 27 August 2017.

District Priorities

We are committing ourselves to growing Flourishing Missional Communities.  We recognise our need to develop a new culture which inspires vocations, sows generously, appoints leaders and changes structures for growth. We are now pursuing four priorities to help us achieve our vision:

Growing Lay Leadership

Recognising our Methodist heritage and that we were a growing movement when we had well-equipped, released and accountable local lay leaders.

Re-Imagining Worship

Recognising, for instance, that often the preaching plan is not an effective tool for developing excellence and local ownership of worship.

Developing "Our Voice"

Recognising that we need to build confidence in sharing our faith, telling our stories and how we speak out and take action on injustice in all its many forms.

Remodelling Governance

Recognising that often we sacrifice our best people on the wrong altars. We're committed to undertake all that is encompassed by 'governance' really well.
