I am now Senior Steward.Travelling all over the Circuit I have been able to facilitate conversations, create networks and encourage the Church community to look out to the wider community. I describe this as 'quiet evangelism'.

Leslie Webster

A Circuit Steward since 2013, I have worshipped at Todmorden Central Methodist Church.. I have been going round to various church councils, seeing how different churches function. My parents and elder daughter have all been circuit stewards so I knew something about how Methodists Circuits run, and it has made me realise the support that the Circuit can give to churches.
