Welcome to the Southend and Leigh Methodist Circuit

It is with sadness that all worship services and church events across the Southend and Leigh Methodist Circuit are suspended for the time being in line with Government guidance. However we remain a Christian presence in our community even if we cannot meet in person or in a building. Advice from Methodist Church at present is that 'Other community events like lunch clubs, after school clubs, playgroups and fellowship groups should be suspended....If keeping the church premises open, make sure it is well cleaned before and after use paying particular attention to surfaces and door handles.'

To Worship from Home at this time, please click here for resources and Sunday service sheets.

We are a grouping of 15 Methodist Church fellowships, including one Zimbabwean fellowship, on 17 sites in the south east corner of Essex.

Our circuit also incorporates 'Westerley', a Christian care home.

Our churches provide traditional services alongside an increasing number of contemporary and family-friendly expressions of worship.

We have a growing sense of service and mission to our communities, with a desire to love our Lord, and our neighbours.

Our Mission

Through prayer and worship; the reading and study of the Bible; mutual support and fellowship; we seek God's empowering through the Holy Spirit to be His missionary people.

We seek in Christian love and service, to reach out to communities in which we are planted, and live the Good News of Jesus Christ.

'Through our lives and by our prayers — Your Kingdom come'
