Welcome... to the North Yorkshire Dales Circuit of the Methodist Church (NYDC).

Formed in September 2010, NYDC is part of the Darlington Methodist District, within the Methodist Church of Great Britain; and encompasses 17 churches and chapels set in some 375 square miles of the beautiful countryside of Swaledale and Wensleydale.

Our Superintendent is Rev Janet Park. Her colleagues are Rev Les Nevin, Deacon Joy Sykes and Kevin Pellatt, the Circuit Administrative Assistant.

The 17 churches differ in size and location and some offer activities on every day of the week; others are less busy and you can check out what is happening, when and where by going to our calendar.

In any quarter there will be different styles of service found on the plan; traditional, contemporary, family and café; with services in some places starting in the early morning and others meeting in the evening. There is usually a Holy Communion service somewhere in the circuit every Sunday.

We also have pastoral responsibility for the Methodist Schools in Gunnerside, Melsonby and Richmond.
