Welcome to the website of the Tynedale Methodist Circuit. We are a group of 19 Methodist Churches working together to share ministry and mission across the Tyne Valley. The Circuit's commitment across Tynedale is to see vibrant Christian communities which introduce people to life in the Kingdom of God and help people to live as followers of Jesus Christ.
Our church communities have remained strong as we have faced the challenges posed by the pandemic over the past year. Online worship became the norm during the lockdown periods and the success of services, Bible studies and other activities have been a great credit to all involved. As church buildings across the Circuit have now started to reopen, it is great to be at the stage where people can physically meet in worship once again. We'll continue to use online resources and we invite everyone to keep up to date with the Tynedale Methodist Circuit page on Facebook and our Twitter page @Tynedale_MC.
Please keep checking this website for more information.

The Tynedale Circuit covers a very large area bordering Cumbria in the west, Scotland in the north, Tyneside in the east and Durham in the south. It is an area well supplied with rivers but dominated by the Tyne. Most of the area covered by the Circuit is spectacularly beautiful countryside. The churches range from tiny congregations in small, remote villages to larger churches in towns. Whatever their size, we aim for our churches to be vibrant, buzzing with life and activities. We have an excellent team of ministers and lay people that provide leadership, vision and direction.
We seek to be true to God's calling on our lives, as individuals and as churches. We are inspired by God's super-abundant love and generosity and want to reflect that in all we are. We wish to share that love and generosity with all, in our welcome and in our words and deeds.
I hope this website will help us keep in touch. More than that, my prayer is that it will enable us to walk with Jesus together, and that it will encourage others to join us on the journey.
May God bless you as you read these pages. May they inspire you with the love of God and help you connect with God and with the churches of the Tynedale Methodist Circuit.
Rev Paul Dunstan
