What is a circuit steward?
Circuit stewards play a vital role in the teams which lead local churches within Methodist Circuits. They work in partnership with presbyters, deacons, church workers and other circuit stewards to enable individuals and communities to find fulfilment and belonging within the Church.
Read about the Methodist Church's priorities in Our Calling.
As the role is voluntary circuit stewards carry out their responsibilities alongside full-time jobs, family commitments and other responsibilities. So, patience and a sense of humour are essential criteria for the job!
Circuit stewards have a range of duties and these are set out in The Constitutional Practice and Discipline of the Methodist Church, which is known as CPD. To find out more about this follow this link.
