The Quarterly Circuit Services exist to offer excellent preaching and worship which relates to life, ministry, the wider circuit and the world.  Friends from the local churches share in planning these acts of worship to ensure that they properly reflect the life of the circuit.  

There are also the 'Circuit Prayer & Praise' gatherings which offer informal, contemporary worship at various churches around the circuit.
