About

It may seem surprising that a Methodist circuit should encompass a whole country, but for Cylchdaith Cymru that is indeed the case. We are a single circuit with one superintendent minister and more than 45 churches where the language of worship is, with a few exceptions, Welsh. Our mission is also supported through the work of local leaders in nine Areas (‘Ardaloedd’) in different parts of Wales.

Cylchdaith Cymru was established in 2009 following the merger of all the former Welsh-language circuits, this being the latest chapter in a long history. John Wesley first preached in Wales in 1739 and there followed numerous visits to Wales, although his influence was limited because he had no knowledge of Welsh. It was not until 1800 that the Wesleyan Methodist Conference was persuaded by Thomas Coke, leader of the Wesleyan missionary movement, to send Welsh-speaking missionaries to Wales. The movement then grew as the gospel was preached to the people of Wales in their own language.

Over the years many changes have taken place and we now face great challenges as a Circuit, despite which we continue to play our part in the life of the Methodist Church through our worship and the work of Sunday Schools (two new Sunday Schools have been established in the last few years), through participation in Methodist Women in Britain, enthusiastic support for Action for Children and other activities.
