Our Calling as Methodists means we long for God’s justice in the world. Around the globe and in their own local communities, Methodists are working for justice through responding to needs and campaigning for change.
The prophet Micah reminded people that the worship God wants is for us to act justly, to love as God loves, and to walk humbly with God. Justice-seeking has always been integral to our relationship with God.
The Walking with Micah: Methodist Principles for Social Justice project will help the Methodist Church in Britain to focus on our principles and priorities for justice and through that increase our ability to seek God’s justice, as a Church and in our own Christian lives.

The Circuit is working towards Eco Circuit status. You can find out more about what we're doing and our journey as churches and a Circuit on our dedicated Eco Circuit page.
We are a Fair Trade circuit. This means that at all circuit events the refreshments provided will be Fairtrade products, as well as in many of the local churches too.

As Christians we are called to care for the planet and all the people on it. If you are planning a service around a social justice theme we have plenty or resources from helpful websites to ready made full services. There are a wide range of topics too, from water justice to racial justice; caring for the environment to celebrating creation. Just go to the Worship Resource page to find them all.
