About the Denby Dale and Clayton West Methodist Circuit

We have nine churches in our rural circuit, stretching from Penistone to West Bretton to Emley. Churches generously share resources to make sure that we are able to employ leaders appropriate to the work we do. The Superintendent Minister, Rev Philip Bee, has oversight of the circuit as a whole and  works with Rev Nick Biggar to shape the life and work of the churches. Our Family and Children’s Worker (Sam Forster), Circuit Administrator (Anna Barron) and Admin Assistant (Lauren) are all appointed to work across all churches and communities.

We have a ten year plan to guide our future work together. One of the bigger pieces of work we have for the next few years is to make our churches carbon neutral so that they are fit for purpose in the 21st Century and beyond. The Denby Dale Centre is a flagship community outreach project which addresses isolation in rural areas. We lead assemblies in local schools and work with families and children in our churches aswell as meeting the needs of older people.

We are blessed to meet together regularly to worship God, celebrate comings and goings, recognise circuit ministries or just for the joy of singing and praying
