Who we are

Operating for the well being of the Methodist Church and Methodist charitable causes.

Methodist Insurance has been protecting the property of the Methodist Church since 1872 which makes us the oldest denominational church insurer in the UK and the largest insurer of Methodist Churches and property both here and in the Republic of Ireland.

Our unique relationship with the 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 at competitive rates.

We are a Public Limited Company owned by shareholders and independent of the Methodist Church.

However, we operate like a mutual by running our business in a way that reflects our Christian based values and by returning most of our profits back to our community in the form of a significant financial contribution to the Methodist Connexion - grants totalling £4.3 million have been allocated in the last 10 years.

To our customers, we offer great levels of cover as standard for a competitive premium, including additional discounts for Methodist church members. Those taking out household insurance are also given the option to donate 20% of their first year’s premium to the church or charity of their choice.  

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

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.
