Stationing is the process by which ministers (presbyters and deacons) are invited to serve in the Methodist Church. Ministers are stationed to circuits with the appointment starting on 1 September. Most initial appointments are for 5 years, after which the minister can request a re-invitation.
The Methodist Church produces a Code of Practice each year, to ensure consistency of approach across the Connexion and is to be followed by all involved in the process. You can download a copy from this page.
Other forms and guidelines can be found on the Stationing section of the Methodist Church Website: https://www.methodist.org.uk/for-churches/ministries/stationing/
In the Sheffield District, all who are likely to be involved in the Stationing process are invited to attend various events led by the Chair of the District ( Revd Gill Newton ) and the Lay Stationing Representative ( Gill Daly ), depending on their role within the church
