The Vale of Aylesbury Methodist Circuit is a mutually supportive group of 18 Churches in the Vale of Aylesbury committed to a common purpose of channelling God’s unchanging love for all people in our constantly changing world.
We range from the large Aylesbury town centre church with its Community Centre to smaller town or village churches.(...more)

This is a FAIR TRADE CIRCUIT
FAIRTRADE MATTERS- What does it require to be a Fairtrade church?
FAIRTRADE’s campaign theme is ‘Take A Step’
What does it mean for your Church?
What does it mean for an individual?
Within the Circuit there are already a few churches registered as being Fairtrade Churches. To meet the claim of being a Fairtrade Circuit, as reported on the website, a set proportion of churches must apply and, at least annually, measure themselves against the following goals.
So what are the requirements for a church to be viewed as ‘Fairtrade’?
The three goals a church must fulfill are:
• Use Fairtrade tea and coffee after services and in all meetings for which they have
• Move forward on using other Fairtrade products such as sugar, biscuits and fruit
• Promote Fairtrade during Fairtrade Fortnight and during the year through events,
worship and other activities whenever possible.
Where a church membership maintains this commitment, it can register as a Fairtrade church.
As the Church is made up of individual the responsibility to achieve and maintain the privilege to call your church a Fairtrade Church lies with how its members apply themselves to buying, using and promoting Fairtrade goods.
Please consider what you and your church want to do in respect of Fairtrade.
Perhaps you could make Fairtrade a set item on your church agenda?

The next Pilgrim's Service will be the 5.30pm. Service on 26th. May at Cuddington.
The invitation is to all : 'Come and be refreshed at Cuddington with Refreshments at 4.30pm and Service at 5.30pm.'
NB. This is the first occasion when there have been so few services at the same time elsewhere in the Circuit. It is hoped that 'Pilgrims' will flock to Cuddington! ( Ed)
This is a resource to enable small groups to grow in discipleship and discernment.
It is designed by the President of the Methodist Conference, Rev. Mark Wakelin.
It is in 8 sections altogether.
The meetings will be at two centres, the first at Stewkley led by Rev Irena Byron commencing on Thursday 18th. April and the second at Stoke Mandeville led by Rev David Jenkins commencing on Wednesday 12 June 7.30 pm.
STOP PRESS: There has been some interest in starting a day-time group, so if you are not able to start the evening one at Stoke Mandeville, then in the afternoon there will be one at Stewkley with the same material.
