South Warwickshire Circuit
Welcome to the first edition of the Circuit Newsletter for the South Warwickshire Circuit. This new circuit will be 'born' on 1st September 2019 when three existing circuits (Mid-Warwickshire, Stratford & Evesham and South West Worcestershire) become two new ones, subject to approval from the Birmingham District Synod in May and the Methodist Conference in June.
This newsletter is one way to help us get to know each other and will be bi-monthly until September. We plan to include updates on progress, introduce the churches and congregations (Tysoe and Bidford on Avon feature in this edition), and provide other circuit news. We hope it will be useful and informative.
