This website is home to an odd mix of disparate elements which have originated in the Leeds North & East Circuit of the Methodist Church. They need a home; they need to be made available to those who may have a use for them; so here they are.


Assorted papers, essays, articles and observations from a broadly Methodist perspective.


A Methodist Lectionary Index is a useful tool for finding when particular passages come up in the Methodist Lectionary, which is a variant of the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL)


The Leeds North & East Circuit has a substantial library of philosophy, theology and religious studies which is available to preachers in the circuit.
Here is its Catalogue.

The Preacher Development website
records work done by the local preachers of the former Leeds North East Circuit between 2000 and 2014 under the leadership of the late Revd Dr George Lovell and the Revd Dr Neil Richardson. It is a significant archive about continuing local preacher development, which led Lovell and Richardson to write Sustaining Preachers and Preaching in 2011. There are many riches to be mined here.

New contributions would be welcomed. Please see the conditions that apply.
