The Advanced Version of the Methodist Webmap shows the extent of districts, circuits and network regions and displays detailed information on churches and church activity relative to the local context. It links up geographical and postcode data with the information submitted by churches during the annual Statistics for Mission returns round as well as data held by other organisations such as the Office for National Statistics, the Church of England and Methodist partner charities. The information is presented in a way which aims to help users understand more about their churches, the people they serve, and the communities in which they are located.

This current version (4.0) was launched in December 2020.
