We are one of the eight churches that make up the Dorking & Horsham Methodist Circuit
The others are to be found in Cobham, Effingham, Leatherhead, Horsham (London Road and St Andrew's), Southwater and Partridge Green.
There is a United Pastorate in the north of the Circuit. This embraces our churches in Leatherhead, Effingham and Cobham, as well as the URC churches at Christ Church (Leatherhead) and Cobham. The Pastorate is served by a Methodist minister (Revd Lynda Russell) and a URC minister (Revd Kim Plumpton).
Our Superintendent Minister will be Revd Gavin Hancocks from October 1.
He will live in Horsham, and oversee the Churches at London Road and Partridge Green.
Revd Paul Cockburn has moved to a new appointment.
Revd Kath Jones is Minister at St Andrew's and Southwater.
The 2016 Methodist Conference has issued a resolution to be read out in every Methodist Church.
