Welcome to Acomb Methodist

Pop Up Cafe

We are delighted to say we are fully up and running once again, and our partners, community groups and friends are offering their usual wide range of activities within our building.

Our Pop-up Friday café is back up and running, and our cinema has re-started

Our Jubilee project is moving into a new phase, with the building of a New Garden room which will expand our community garden and retreat space, and inside we are renovating Room 5 and lowering the stage to create new accessible storage.

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 lookout for new opportunities for whole family worship and engagement.

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

Upcoming services

Hybrid Zoom on Sunday 10:30am

We offer Sunday worship physically each week, including young church. We will still be welcoming friends online, via Zoom, or sometimes a livestream on our YouTube channel. We are also open for prayer at our sister churches of Holgate (Thursday 10:30am) and Southlands (Wednesdays 2:30pm), as well as here at Acomb (Sunday 9:15am). We’d love it if you joined us either physically or virtually for Sunday worship, at 10:30am each Sunday. To join us online, see 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 our 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.

New Walk the Talk Podcasts

Walk The Talk York Podcast

Produced by York Methodist Circuit, our host Rory Dalgliesh will be chatting to local people involved in local projects addressing important issues and helping those in need. We’ll be discussing how faith plays a part and letting you know how you can get involved, support or help in a practical way.

Available on Apple podcasts, Google podcasts, Spotify and https://walk-the-talk-york.simplecast.com/


Today we are speaking to Mark Bevan, who is working with the Yorkshire North & East Methodist District to produce a report on homelessness and how the church can actively get involved not just as a quick response but long-term solutions. Rory and Mark discuss the challenges around change and how you can get involved and ‘sleep out for homelessness’ in January 2022.

We are now only uploading our Livestreamed services to YouTube on occasion, but you are welcome to join us on Zoom most weeks. Below we include the service from 3rd April, led by Angela Storer.

We usually linger after 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.
