23.03.20 Update

Birmingham Methodist Circuit, taking advice from the Methodist Church centrally and other sources, is doing its best to proactively respond to the unprecedented times in which we find ourselves. We have asked all churches in our circuit to stop meeting in person for worship and that all groups that are non-essential cease meeting in their church buildings.

Circuit events and activities are currently on hold. The main circuit office at Carrs Lane is currently not being manned for the majority of the time, but we can still be contacted easily. Please phone 07922 421419 to contact Beverley Francis, one of our Circuit Administrators, on our new temporary office mobile, who can direct queries to the most helpful person. You can also email us on

More helpful contact details can be found on our Contact Us page here.

More thorough thoughts to follow this week, but in the meantime, please find below a list of some helpful resources and guidance which we think you might find helpful. Please do speak to your Minister if you have anything that particularly concerns you or that you want to talk through.
