Welcome to our Circuit. Here we hope to provide you with information and assistance about Methodism in Skipton, Grassington and the Dales and encourage you to join us and to seek us out at one of our churches

The Skipton and Grassington Circuit of the Methodist Church in England covers a substantial part of the Yorkshire Dales and contains 9 churches. The largest place is Skipton, a small town of some 15,000 people while Grassington is the largest village in this area - it's a pretty rural area! The area is part of the North Yorkshire and adjacent area known as "Craven".

We are glad to welcome you to join us at any of the churches - in our services or programmes of activity; whether you already live in this part of Craven, are moving here, or are visiting or passing through. Look in our pages to find more information about us and what, as Christians, we try to do.

The aim of our churches and of the circuit is to provide places and communities of Christian worship and witness. In these we strive to meet spiritual, social and community needs in an atmosphere of Christian love.
