We have Methodist values at the heart of everything we do. That’s why you can trust that we can provide peace of mind for you and your Methodist community.

Who are we

Operating for the wellbeing of the Methodist Church and Methodist charitable causes, Methodist Insurance is the largest insurer of Methodist Churches and property in the UK. (Please note that we are unable to offer new business or renewal in the Republic of Ireland after 1 March 2020).

Our unique relationship with the Methodist Church and the strong partnership we have built up with its associated organisations helps us to better understand your activities and requirements, so we can provide tailor-made policies to protect what matters to you most.

What we do

We are proud of the professional service we have given since 1872 and our knowledgeable and experienced staff are always happy to deal with any queries you may have. 

Our insurance policies can cover a range of property, people and activities for Methodist churches:

Giving back to the Methodist community

We are a Public Limited Company owned by shareholders and independent of the Methodist Church but we operate like a mutual by running our business in a way that reflects our Christian values and by returning most of our profits back to our community. Methodist Insurance has given a significant financial contribution to the Methodist Connexion with grants in excess of £11.8m being allocated over the last five years. Read more about our grants scheme.

You can help us to support the Methodist community by choosing Methodist Insurance – investing your trust in us to look after your church, home, community group or charity is an investment in your local community.

Our promise to our customers

We are always prepared to go the extra mile to support our customers and have the desire to provide exceptional insurance solutions. This desire comes to life here in the form of our Customer Promise, which aims to demonstrate how we can make it count under five key headings, the standard that we set for ourselves in delivering good outcomes for the Methodist Church and charitable causes every day.
