Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Methodist District
Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Methodist District is made up of 15 circuits and in common with other Methodist Districts, it exists primarily to advance the mission of the Church by providing support for the circuits in line with the connexional priorities.
Each District is led by a District Chair. Our District Chair is Revd Steven Wild. As well as providing leadership within the district, the chair is a member of the Connexional Leaders’ Forum, with an overview of the whole connexion.
The District Synod sets the policy for the district, serving as a link between the Conference and the Connexional Team on the one hand and the circuits and local churches on the other. It has oversight of all district affairs, formulating and promoting policies, through its various officers and committees to assist the mission of the Church, to give inspiration to the leaders in the circuits and to ensure the interrelation of all aspects of the Church’s life throughout the district. The synod may bring matters to the Conference.
The synod meets in representative session twice each year and also hold a presbyteral session of the synod for presbyters.
