Welcome to the Newcastle Methodist District
Welcome from the Chair of the District
Welcome to the Newcastle upon Tyne District Website! We hope you will find what you’re looking for and be encouraged by what you read! The Newcastle District is one of immense diversity. The City of Newcastle is the economic and cultural center of the region and, with the City of Sunderland, forms the main center of the population. In addition to these urban areas the District has an interesting mix of market towns, former mining areas and an extensive rural area.
The District comprises the northern part of County Durham, Tyne and Wear, all of Northumberland and part of the Scottish Borders. It covers an area 90 miles north to south and 50 miles east to west. There are 12 Circuits and you will find details of each of these on this website. Within these Circuits are approximately 180 church buildings of which about 25% are used in partnership with those of other denominations.
