Welcome to Acomb Methodist

Fully Open Again!

We are delighted to say our building is once again now open. 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. Many community groups have already begun to offer their usual activities, including Tuesday Playtime and we anticipate almost a full complement by September.


During the summer and early autumn 2021 we are offering both physical and live broadcast and received worship. (See the table below). We are also open for prayer at our sister churches of Holgate (Thursday 10:30) and Southlands (Wednesdays 2:30) as well as here at Acomb (Sunday 9:30). We’d continue to love it if you joined us either virtually, or physically for our hybrid 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.

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.

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.
