Welcome to Acomb Methodist

We’re Open Again!

We are delighted to say that (lockdowns allowing) our building is now open for selected activities. We’ve undergone a rigorous process of risk assessments and streamlining rooms, and ensuring our partners have the right controls in place to keep us all as safe.

Our Pop-up cafe has re-launched and we are evolving as we go along. Several community groups have already begun to offer their usual activities.


We’ve made a decision to stay online for the majority of our worship, but we are meeting (when lockdowns allow) physically for prayer at our sister churches of Holgate (Thursday 10:30) and Southlands (Wednesdays 2:30). We’d love it if joined us virtually, for our Zoom on Sunday worship, at 10:30 each Sunday – see links, and information below, or at one of the alternate Digital services our group of 30 churches offer online across York.

This coming Sunday, we are also hosting our annual memorial service at 4:00pm, where we remember those we have lost, and reflect on the losses of this last year.

More About Us

We are a busy, community and family-oriented church, home to lots of activities, and a beautiful community garden (do check it out here).  We’d love to welcome you in person, but if you would like to find out more about us first, or are looking for more information on our events and activities, then select from the menus above to find out more about us.

  • Divine Focus is meeting through Zoom video conferencing at present, but normally meets at Southlands Methodist church

Zoom on Sunday 10:30am

Join us on Sunday for another online bible study/worship time hosted by Acomb, Southlands & Holgate Methodist church. At 10:30am John Bailey will be starting our Advent series, with Mark 1:1-8. Later that afternoon at 4:00pm Rev Andy will be leading a Memorial service, remembering those who we have lost, but also reflecting on a year full of loss. To join us, just use the Zoom details below. This week we had a breakout for our young people, which we aim to offer in future, details available on Sunday morning, or by signing up for our mailchimp database.

For those who missed last week’s shared time, the following is our minister, Andy’s reflection on Angela Storer’s sharing with us on Acts 15:22-41 – Paul and Barnanas fall out! (you’ll find more Sunday’s on our You Tube channel or Facebook page).

Sylvia Bunting was leading the circuit service this Sunday. The circuit service is also available each week, at the same time as our Zoom, so if you would like to watch it live, or afterwards, then click subscribe and you will be sent a link each week. Feel free to join us, after our Zoom, for coffee. If you’d like to watch both, I will try and post them on this email each week.

Alternatively, if you’d like to join a contemporary service, then please find a link to our sister church, at Copmanthorpe.

Finally, our new circuit family worship time [ ONE Family] , which was led live in November (and takes place monthly). If you missed it, but would like to follow now, watch the following.

We usually linger after the ‘worship’ to continue to ‘be church’, in conversation in different physical church groups. This is the time where we catch up with one another, share concerns, and develop ways in which we might express God’s love in our context practically…so do stay for that if you are able.
