District Information

The Methodist Church Chester & Stoke-on-Trent District covers much of Cheshire and North Staffordshire.  It is a very diverse district with places packed with history like Chester and Nantwich, rural communities on the Cheshire plains and the Staffordshire moorlands, the Pottery towns that now make up the City of Stoke, with many signs of past industries and new ones emerging.

The Circuits and Churches are diverse, each seeking to be authentic to their calling to be a Christian presence characterised by worship, evangelism, mission, service, care and nurture.  Across the district, Churches seek to relate their Christian faith into a changing world and the communities in which they are set.

North West & Mann Region

The district is in covenant with other districts in the North West and Mann Region supported by the North West and Mann Learning Network.  The Region has a Facebook page which is used to share news.
