Stretford and Urmston Methodist Circuit
Welcome to our group of Methodist Churches representing the Methodist way of life in Urmston, Davyhulme, Flixton, Stretford and Gorse Hill in the borough for Trafford. If we mention 'Old Trafford', you will know that we are in Manchester, a home for both football and cricket. To the east, lies the Bridgewater Canal, to the north is the Manchester Ship Canal, Trafford Park (industry) and Trafford Centre (shopping) are close by and the M60 runs through our heartland. You can reach us by Metro, busses and trains.
Our churches offer a host of activities, so take a moment to look further. We also seek to host community activities where possible, and our facilities are often available for hire.
We hope that you can experience the love we have for God, for people and for the world gifted to us.
Called into ministry 15 years ago, it is a privilege to move back to Manchester and to serve this part of Trafford as a Methodist minister. I left behind a career in business technology, to engage in a different task, the building of a community of faith.
