About IMC

Welcome Ilkeston Methodist Church

Ilkeston Methodist Church (IMC) is part of the Mid Derbyshire Methodist Circuit. The Mid Derbyshire Circuit developed its Mission Policy 2015 and this identified Ilkeston as being one of its key mission areas. 

The Circuit has requested that all Church Councils in the Circuit should promote this Mission Policy and actively seek to develop local mission policies which are aligned with and contribute to it. It is the practice within IMC that, wherever possible our Church Council agendas make reference to the relevant priorities included in the Circuit Policy.
