The South Derbyshire Circuit
The circuit covers an area which lies within the National Forest and is centred on the market town of Swadlincote. There is a past heritage of mining and potteries. Today, Swadlincote is one of the fastest growing towns in the country with much new housing development.
There are 10 churches in the circuit including a Local Ecumenical Partnership (Anglican/Methodist).
There is also a town centre ministry which uses shop premises, 10-12 West Street. The town centre ministry includes a Fair Trade shop, The Fairer Choice and Oasis community space. The name OASIS was created from the vision of ‘Offering A Sanctuary In Swadlincote.
