Welcome to the Vale of Stour Methodist Circuit website
The Vale of Stour Circuit came into being following the merger of the Stour Vale and the Brierley Hill & Stourbridge Circuits, and is part of the Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury District. The Circuit is currently undergoing a review, part of which will involve working with church members and the Church Technical Community, to develop the circuit website in line with our vision for mission and evangelism.
We are a group of fourteen churches on the western fringe of the West Midlands comprising a mix of urban, suburban and near rural areas, seeking to spread the love of God in every way we can. The communities we serve are very varied. We believe it is our responsibility and privilege to share the ‘Good News’ of Christ, which we know can lead to our lives having a new sense of purpose and fulfilment.
Our various churches enjoy a wide range of activities including nurseries/toddler groups, stroke club, youth clubs, uniformed organisations, messy churches and myriad groups supporting the elderly. Support for food banks and many charities is strong.
We offer a wide range of worship on Sundays and mid-week suited to all members of the family. Full details can be found in each church’s entry.
Thank you for looking at our website. We are glad you did and if we can be of any help to you just let us know.
We the members of the Vale of Stour Methodist Circuit will take the gospel message out into the communities in which we are placed through;
- A service to the poor and disadvantaged
- Supporting the world-wide mission of the church at home and overseas
- Actively participating in causes working for issues of justice and peace
