Welcome to the West Sussex (Coast and Downs) Circuit website.
We are part of the South East District of the Methodist Church. Our Churches are located in a beautiful part of the country that encompasses both the pebbly beaches of the south coast and the rolling Sussex Downs. Since 1st September 2016, our Circuit consists of the former South West Sussex United Area and the old Worthing Circuit. Of our fifteen churches, three are Local Ecumenical Partnerships embracing members of the Baptist Church, the Methodist Church and the United Reformed Church. In Worthing, a former Methodist Church is now shared with the Local Authority and operates as a Children’s Centre by day and is available for Circuit purposes in the evenings and at the weekends. Greenways Methodist Home in Bognor Regis also falls within our new Circuit.
Each of our churches exists to express the love of God in Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit in worship, learning, caring and service.
