Welcome to the Blackpool Methodist Circuit website.

The Blackpool Methodist Circuit is a group of four Methodist churches, worshipping on five sites, and serving the Blackpool community.

We seek to be a loving and inclusive community that worships God, and serves others. We place a high priority on teaching from the Bible and following the example of Jesus. Our vision is to impact and renew Blackpool and beyond with the transforming message of Jesus Christ through words and actions.

Everyone is welcome. Come as you are - we'd love to get to know you.
