What is a Methodist?
The Methodist Church in Great Britain is made up of hundreds of church congregations, throughout the country. At national level the church refers to itself as the Methodist Connexion, emphasising the networked nature of the church. There are administrative Districts within the Connexion, each of which comprises many Circuits and in each Circuit there will be many churches.
Ludlow Methodist Church is part of the Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury Methodist District. Within this the Shropshire and Marches Methodist Circuit is so large that it is subdivided into three areas (North, Central and South) with Ludlow being part of the South area.
The Circuit magazine is amusingly called the Green Sock, reflecting the unusual shape of the Circuit!
The Church exists to increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love.
Learning and Caring
The Church exists to help people to grow and learn as Christians, through mutual support and care.
The Church exists to be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice.
