Contact Details

The website includes addresses of churches and church and circuit offices, including phone and fax numbers and email addresses.
Addresses will not be included for individuals unless they specifically request inclusion.
Ministers', deacons' and lay workers' names, phone numbers and email addresses will be included without their permission being requested.
The names, phone numbers and email addresses of others will be included subject to their approval.

To safeguardemail addressesfrom spammers, the addresses are encrypted so that a spambot harvester cannot read them. They appear to be normal, but if you view the source code you will see that they are unreadable there.

If you do not wish to use your normal email address, you can have an email address on theleedsnandemethodistdomain instead  (see below).


The permission of those photographed should be obtained if they are named on the website. Normally this can be done by telling people at the time a picture is taken that it will be used on the website.

In the case of photographs of children, parental approval will be needed for their inclusion, and children will not be identified by name.

Some compromises are therefore necessary. The website will be suitable for the vast majority of users as it has:

  1. as a forwarding address:Mail is diverted to your private email address, which is not revealed on the website. This does not require any change in your email system. It works only for incoming mail. You will need to use your private email address to reply to correspondents;
  2. as a normal two-way email address: You need to supply a password and will be given an ID. Mail can be accessed and dealt with through a website from anywhere in the world, or you can set up an account on your email browser to receive and send mail using the same mailbox as your private email address, or another, as you see fit. The installation will be your responsibility.
