Welcome to Lancashire West Methodist Circuit

Welcome to the website of the Lancashire West Methodist Circuit, part of the Liverpool Methodist District (18/19). The Lancashire West Circuit was formed on 1st September 2012 by the amalgamation of the former Ormskirk and Skelmersdale circuits.

Methodist in Lviv

On Friday, May 6th, the Rev Roger Stubbings recorded an interview with Volodymyr Prokip, United Methodist minister in Lviv, Ukraine. Rev Roger tutored Rev Sue during her training to preach, and they both met Volodymyr briefly at the 2018 British Methodist Conference in Nottingham, at which Rev Sue was ordained, and Volodymyr was a World Church Representative.

In this video Volodymyr gives a moving account of how the Methodist congregation in Lviv has responded to the desperate situation of refugees fleeing westward from the war torn areas in the eastern and southern parts of Ukraine, and of the longer term plans they have to help people in the longer term.


Please find details of services taking place in our Churches in our Good News Newsletter – see the link below. In addition, each week there will be a circuit service prepared. Please feel free to join us for worship either on a Sunday at 10.30am (BST) or any time during the week at your convenience. To access it please click here.
