Welcome to the Borders Mission web site


The Borders Mission Circuit comprises a group of Methodist Churches serving the area along the Nottinghamshire Derbyshire border, a mixture of former mining communities and the edge of the beautiful Peak District. Whenever you are in the area you will be assured of a warm welcome in any of the churches.

Services and other events

It is with sadness that for several weeks now we have suspended all events in church buildings around the circuit in line with Government guidance.

People, not the building, are the church and we will continue to find innovative ways to worship and join together in prayer.

For a guide to radio and television services available download Corona Radio Services

We are pleased to say that the Government guidance is slowly changing and so churches in the Circuit can start to consider re-opening for worship. The Methodist Church have compiled guidance to help Church Councils in their decision to re-open. Please see this letter (BMC Letter to all members) from the Circuit Ministers which explains the steps to reopening and also includes a survey which we would like as many of our members and worshippers to complete by 31st July 2020. The results will help the Circuit Leadership Team to plan strategically for reopening. If you have any questions on the letter or on our buildings reopening please contact your minister. The circuit is publishing a monthly preachinbg plan which is available on the downloads page
