In addition to supporting our network of churches, the circuit uses projects to further the mission of Christ in our area.

The Ark @ Crawcrook

Replacing the Robert Young Memorial Church on the main road through Crawcrook (Ryton, Tyne and Wear), the Ark @ Crawcrook is an exciting new venture by the Methodist Church in the area.

The Ark is a not for Profit Church Centre, with the Aim of being part of the local community! The Play Centre/ Sensory room is open to the public during the week, whilst on Saturdays the Ark can be hired out for Private parties.   

The Ark is a different way of doing Church! It aims to provide an environment for people who may not be linked to a congregation, to feel happy and comfortable in finding out more about Christianity. The Ark regularly host's family friendly, "praise and Play," style church services, allowing children to play and learn at the same time.
