You will find a warm welcome at any of the Services held in the churches of the Circuit week by week.
Our Services may be conducted by a variety of Preachers that range from Ordained Methodist ministers to trained Local preachers and even some Worship Groups that have been formed in some of our churches. The Circuit is also indebted to a number of Visiting Preachers who may be ministers from other denominations or Local preachers from other Circuits. We therefore enjoy a wide variety of styles of worship in the 18 churches that comprise the Vale of Aylesbury Methodist Circuit.
There will also be a number of United Services in out towns and villages where local churches worship together, some on special occasions but most on a regular basis.
There are also a number of occasions when the Circuit Churches are invited to come together usually in the Aylesbury Church.
All the details are published on a quarterly Circuit Preaching Plan, which can only contain brief details so if you want more detail click on CHURCHES above and select select the church you are interested in to find more detail and a map of how to find it.



A Circuit initiative will take place on four Sundays — 27th May, 3rd June, 10th June, 17th June — across the circuit.
The circuit meeting has agreed that over these Sundays the focus of our worship will be the Our Calling Priorities of the Methodist Church. The aim is to build on the prayers of Thy Kingdom Come and to lead us towards our Circuit consultation on 20th June at Stoke Mandeville which will resource churches to develop a Growth Plan in line with Methodist Conference directives.
Therefore on the following Sunday our focus will be:

  • -27th May : Worship .....'The church exists to increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love'
  • - 3rd June : Learning & caring ......'The Church exists to help people to grow and learn as Christians, through mutual
    support and care'
  • -10th June : Service.....'The Church exists to be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice'
  • -17th June : Evangelism .....'The Church exists to make more followers of Jesus Christ'


What happens during Methodist worship?

Methodist worship is quite varied, but you should always find:

  • enthusiastic singing of hymns and songs (old and new)
  • readings from the Bible in a modern easily understood translation
  • heartfelt prayers which relate to what is going on in the world
