Cheshire South Circuit comprises thirty-six Methodist churches. Most of these are located in south Cheshire, but others can be found in Staffordshire, Shropshire and Wales.
The thirty-six churches are grouped into twelve Mission Areas. In each Mission Areas, small numbers of churches work closely together to serve a locality.

Members of Cheshire South Circuit Meeting act as the Circuit's managing trustees and a number of groups work under the authority of the Circuit Meeting:-

  • Circuit Leadership Team
  • Circuit Finance Team
  • Circuit Property team
  • Circuit Staffing Team
  • Circuit Discipleship and Mission Team.

    A large team of preachers take Sunday services across the Circuit, with a 'Circuit Plan' of such services published each quarter. They also meet quarterly at the Local Preachers Meeting.

    Over the last few years many of the churches have been successful in obtaining grants, from a variety of sources, to upgrade the buildings and facilities. The main aim of this is to enable and improve outreach and mission into their local communities. This has been especially important for those churches serving the many rural villages within the Circuit boundaries.

    Earlier this year new Fresh Expression Church opened in Crewe. The Coffee Shop opens daily and there are facilities for groups of all sizes. More details can be found at
