The Northampton District is a delightfully diverse area. The communities we serve include city centres urban and suburban areas including new housing developments, and many rural communities and sometimes all of these can be found in one circuit. We also support chaplaincy work to universities, hospitals, prisons, industrial and commercial workplaces. We enjoy encouraging the full variety of lay and ordained ministries in these varied contexts and we celebrate our diversity.
We encourage a collaborative style of leadership throughout the District as we seek to enable, support and challenge our local churches and circuits as they respond to the calling of being a Methodist Church or Ecumenical Partnership in their local context. This is done through the work of District Staff and Officers, both paid and voluntary, working locally with individuals, churches and circuits.
