Welcome to the website of the Christchurch and Wimborne Methodist Circuit.

In accordance with the current Government advice, and recommendation from The Methodist Church in Britain, all worship and activities are suspended until further notice.

During this time, several of our preachers are continuing to prepare their services, and transcripts of these are being uploaded onto this website. You will find them under News Stories on the right hand panel of the Home page.

Letter from our Superintendent, 16 April 2020:

Dear Friends around the Circuit,

I would very much like to thank you for all you continue to do for the life and wellbeing of the members and friends of our churches. I know that the Circuit Staff are continuing to work hard to maintain their ministries in these challenging times including, supporting and being concerned for people, offering different ways of being church and maintaining the worshiping, praying life and Pastoral care of the churches for which they are in pastoral charge. I, as Superintendent, know that I am very blessed to have a superb and fantastic team of colleagues, both Ordained and Lay.

I would also like to acknowledge and thank the many others around the Circuit who are giving their time to keep things going. The pastoral visitors, Church and Circuit Stewards, Treasurers and administrators, those updating website and newsletters, the unseen people checking buildings and the many others who are making phone calls or shopping and caring for others. There are Local Preachers and many others who are finding additional time to study and reflect on the word of God. This list is not exhaustive. We can all use this gift of time to improve our own life of devotion.

I should like to convey, to you all, my appreciation for remaining positive during this period and my encouragement to persevere though these challenging times. We remain children of God and in His strength, we shall endure.

Every Blessing,
Revd Pauline Crispin, Suerintendent


Who are we? We are made up of:

  • 15 churches running from Blandford in the west to Brockenhurst in the east
  • large, medium and small churches, all of whom are passionate about our purpose and vision
  • congregations who want to be disciples of Jesus Christ whoever we are and wherever we are
  • people who want to be together for worship, conversation and learning
  • people who want to welcome others

What else matters to us?

Life outside the church! You'll find us, for example.....

  • in schools,
  • in residential homes,
  • in youth centres,
  • in Wimborne square in the early hours of Saturday morning
  • wherever Methodists work and live, shop and swim.

The circuit's heartbeat is people across our churches whose lives have taken on board God's love, compassion, forgiveness and welcome of all and who want to try and live the ways of Jesus Christ. Supporting this vast army of people are 6 lay workers and 5 ministers.

Enjoy reading more about us on this website, and please get in touch if you want to know more.

Acts 18:1-16

Paul left Athens and went to Corinth. There he found a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife, Priscilla, because Claudius had ordered all Jews to leave Rome ... Every Sabbath (Paul) would argue in the synagogue and would try to convince Jews and Greeks. (vs. 1-2, 4)
