We seek to find and fulfil our place in the mission of God to the world. The role of the circuit is to develop approaches to staffing and the use of the resources in supporting the churches as we live out our calling. The mission of Macclesfield Methodist Circuit is to seek to order our life so that we engage fully with the Five Marks of Mission in everything we do. The circuit will give attention to these marks as it considers the complex issues of staffing, grant making and overseeing circuit initiatives.
