God of all grace, good beyond all that is good, fair beyond all that is fair and loving beyond all that is loving; grant us to be of one mind in our faith, of one hope in our calling, and of one heart in our loving; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Dionysius of Alexandria (c.200-c.265)
Gracious God, draw us towards yourself,
that in our busyness we may find space
to be still in your presence,
and in your presence be touched and
transformed by your glory.
Ever-present God, as we encounter others,
grant that we may glimpse in them your image
and in so doing be changed so as to mirror you
Yearning God, stir up within us your Spirit,
that we may echo your aching for the world
and become agents of your change.
Midwife God, deliver us from our self-centredness
so as to be liberated as the children of God,
bearing witness to your kingdom breaking forth.
Holy God, stop us in our tracks to gaze upon your glory,
that we may be changed from one degree of glory to another
and be lost in wonder, love and praise.

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 channeling God's unchanging love for all people in our constantly changing world. The Circuit deploys a staff team of presbyters and lay persons -- under the leadership of Superintendent, Helen Kirk -- that work alongside numerous dedicated volunteers and in ecumenical partnership with churches from other denominations.
And although our churches and chapels vary greatly in age, size and style of architecture all have things in common: a desire to follow Jesus Christ and and to share his love in the communities in which we serve. To this end we offer worship in different styles, opportunities to deepen and share faith and the chance to work together on different projects, along with a warm welcome and genuine friendship. So please take the time to discover more about us here or even better — come and see us in person!
