The Southampton District of the Methodist Church covers all of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, extends to Dorset and Somerset in the West and up into Berkshire and south Oxfordshire.  We have over 80 ministers serving over 200 churches, ranging from small rural communities to large urban conurbations, from coastal towns to major cities to the delights of the New Forest.

Our District Chair is Revd Andrew de Ville and you can contact his PA, Sarah Pothecary here
