Welcome to Acomb Methodist

Pop Up Cafe

We are a busy, community- and family-oriented church, home to lots of activities and a beautiful community garden. Alongside Sunday worship, different community groups and friends offer a wide range of activities within our building during the week.

A Pop-up café runs on Fridays during term time (10am to 1:30pm), and we have a monthly Community Cinema on the first Saturday in the month.

Our Jubilee project, started in 2014, is now complete, with the building of a new Garden Studio which has expanded our community garden and retreat space.

We are the host for an Acomb churches together project called Thursday Tea to Go which supports individuals and groups struggling with the cost of living crisis and mental health providing a hot meal each week.

As well as a new programme of quiet days, meditation spaces, prayer zones and spiritual direction, we are exploring Intergenerational church with our circuit expert, Amy, so look out for new opportunities for whole family worship and engagement.

We are welcoming of all genders, sexualities, neurodiversities, ethnicities and are registered for same-sex weddings. We have a range of theologies, beliefs and opinions, but are united in our desire to be welcoming to all, serving and blessing our city and learning from one another.

All this, and we retain our online Zoom and streamed services for those who can’t make it in person.

Upcoming services (Sundays at 10:30am)

12th May: Service with Holy Communion, led by Rev Andy Lindley. Godly Play and Big Questions will be running for the younger members of the congregation. This service will be followed by our Annual Church Meeting.

Hybrid Zoom on Sunday 10:30am

We offer Sunday worship physically each week, including our intergenerational cafe worship, all age worship and god squad, as well as more traditional styles. We also welcome friends online via Zoom, or sometimes a live stream on our YouTube channel. We are also open for prayer at our sister churches of Holgate (Thursday 10:30 am) and Southlands (Wednesday 2:30 pm), as well as here at Acomb (Sunday 9:15 am). We’d love it if you joined us either physically or virtually for Sunday worship, at 10:30 am each Sunday. To join us online, see the links and information below, or you could join one of the alternate Digital services our group of 30 churches offer online across York. If Sundays aren’t for you, look out for Quiet Days and other events across the week.

You are warmly invited to join us for our Hybrid Zoom services: hosted physically at Acomb Methodist, it is possible to connect in with them via Zoom.

Community Cinema Relaunch

Our community cinema has relaunched. Check the events page for the next showing. Unfortunately we cannot display the film here for copyright reasons, but do sign up to our mailing list and we’ll email you details, or check out the posters in our foyer.

Community Garden & Net Zero Project

Forming part of our Jubilee Project, over the last ten years we have substantially improved our carbon footprint, as well as developing a Quiet Community garden, with facilities used for Counselling, Spiritual retreats and exploration, and quiet contemplation. It is open to the public during daylight hours. The video below shows a snapshot of its history, as well as our community cafe.
