The Vale of Stour Methodist Circuit

Welcome to the Vale of Stour Methodist Circuit -
we are 13 churches located in the West Midlands, a mix of urban / suburban areas plus town and near-rural areas. We are blessed with notable cultural centres, major shopping centres, canals and easy access to beautiful Worcestershire & Shropshire countryside.

We believe Jesus came to show God’s love for us, face to face. Jesus calls us to love and serve the world, creating an inclusive, living example of how we can come together in all our diversity to know that we are each valued, one family - the family of God.

Our churches come in all shapes and sizes offering circuit-wide services, Bible study, prayer, youth clubs, uniformed organisations, holiday clubs, schools and families work, lunch clubs, and stargazing! We support local foodbanks, charities etc., and provide meals for families during school holidays.

The Shine Church serves families and children with additional needs. We work with and host the Brierley Hill Project – a Christian charity providing support for those in need in the community and we run Headlight - a monthly community event focussed on singing to support mental and physical wellbeing.  These are just a few examples of our work with the local community.

We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and we seek to safeguard all children and vulnerable adults in our care.
