Welcome to Acomb Methodist

We’re Open Again!

We are delighted to say that lockdown’s allowing – our building is once again 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.

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.

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.
