About

The Southwark and Deptford Circuit exists to enable, support and challenge local churches to:  

  1. Increase the awareness of God’s love and presence
  2. Help people grow
  3. Encourage community interaction and engage in responding to its needs and challenges
  4. Challenge injustice and promote diversity.



In order to do this, we will:

Enable local churches to:

  • Maintain regular patterns of worship (plan)
  • Grow into the people that God intended us to be (grace and holiness)
  • Discuss mission and actively contribute to local church and faith mission.
  • Co-ordinate and facilitate effective use of resources, both ministerial and communal.
  • Promote training.



Support local churches through:

  • Prayer and worship
  • The allocation of a designated Circuit steward
  • The co-ordination of resources.
  • Provision of opportunities.
  • Exploration of opportunities for external funding.


Challenge local churches to:

  • Deliver the Circuit policy through effective planning, setting and evaluating realistic targets.
  • Promote equitable use of its resources.
  • Allow their resources to be used in effective ministry throughout the Circuit.
  • Ensure that targets are achieved.
