Welcome to our District website
Welcome to the website of the West Yorkshire District of the Methodist Church. The Methodist churches in the West Yorkshire District share in the calling of the Methodist Church to respond to the gospel of God’s love in Jesus Christ and to live out our discipleship in worship and mission.
The District Office will close at 3.00 pm on Friday, 19th December 2014 and re-open at 11.30 am on Monday, 5th January 2015. Wishing you every blessing for Christmas and the coming year.
