Kingston Methodist Circuit (registered charity number 1163652)
Kingston Methodist Circuit is a group of the four Methodist Churches in the Royal Borough of Kingston on Thames. We have around 500 active church members and a much larger community of people who support, visit and use our churches. The four churches work together to support one another in our worship and service. The circuit has three ordained ministers and a number of workers for children, youth, and church administration, along with countless volunteers all spread amongst our four churches.
We are a diverse community, and in our churches you will find people of all ages and backgrounds We hope you will also find a warm welcome.
Kingston Methodist Circuit works closely with our friends in other churches especially when supporting borough wide initiatives like Street Pastors, the Food Bank and Kingston Churches Action on Homelessness. We are also proud of our Methodist heritage which encourages warm fellowship, practical faith and worship rich in music and prayer.
