A warm welcome to the Sale Methodist Circuit.

Situated in the heart of Trafford, and part of the Manchester and Stockport Methodist District, we welcome you to visit any of our six diverse churches which vary from large suburban to country chapel.

The Churches, which have all been established for many years are organised into two ministerial sections and have developed strong links with the communities they serve.
