Welcome to the Northampton Circuit of The Methodist Church

Current Wayside Pulpit at Park Avenue

Within this site you will find information about the Methodist Church in Northampton and the surrounding area. We hope that you will find these pages useful, and we warmly invite you to join us for worship at any of our churches.

The Northampton Circuit operates a Team Ministry. The Circuit Leadership Team, ministers and lay representatives are jointly responsible for overseeing the life of the Methodist churches.

The ordained Ministers meet weekly to share responsibility for the life of the circuit. In addition individual ministers have pastoral responsibility for groups of churches – these are:

The Emmanuel Group of Churches, a Local Ecumenical Partnership, also forms part of our circuit. 

The Northampton Circuit operates a safeguarding policy for children and vulnerable adults.

Update 29th July 2021

Our Worship at Home service for the week of 1st August is now available. Please join Local Preacher Mary Winchcombe as she leads worship on the theme of The Bread of Life.


RE:Uniform Project

Rev David Speirs will be joining us in Northampton later this month. Please watch this short video about the RE:Uniform project that his current circuit setup a couple of years ago in Hull. It might start sparking some ideas for us in Northampton on how we might reach out to our local communities through service and social action.

Kingsley Park, with the help of others, have created a most beautiful Bible Garden.

We give thanks that our church buildings are beginning to reopen. We hope that you will continue to participate in the weekly Worship at Home services, they can be used at any time. If you attend Sunday worship at your church, you might like to use the Worship at Home as a mid-week act of worship. We intend to keep producing them every week so please visit the web page whenever you like during the week. 

The current Preaching Plan is available here. Please check the local arrangements with your church as it will be necessary to register your attendance for the time being. All our churches will be ensuring that their services are conducted safely so that the risk from coronavirus will be minimised.

Our Methodist Homestead

Plenty of information about life at the Methodist Homestead in Northampton, and contact details are available on their website. Currently there are a couple of cottages that are available.
