Details of Weekly Worship at Southlands

As we continue to explore what 2022 holds, Sunday 10:30am worship takes place physically in the church each week. Sometimes worship is led in person, and other times we join our sister church at Acomb online through a live stream.

If you are unable to be present at church, or would prefer to join us online for any reason, then do join our Hybrid Zoom services hosted by Acomb Methodist Church, which take place at the same time each Sunday morning (see the Zoom log in details below.) Occasionally there is the option of joining a YouTube livestream too.

We also meet physically each Wednesday at 2pm for a simple prayer service (when lockdowns allow), which is a smaller gathering.

Our next in-person services, at 10:30am will be….

12 June: Revd David Bidnell (service with communion)

19 June: Gill Mason (Week 1 Bible Month)

26 June: Louisa Taylor (Week 2 Bible Month and All Age Worship)

3 July: Elisa Main (Week 3 Bible Month)

Available each week online, from our sister church….see Acomb Church for more details

Southlands Methodist is an unusual Methodist church, in that as well as being a place of worship, and a base for a variety of community activities, we are also home to South Bank Studios (a community of artists in residence), and a partner with Seek Art School and also with Planet Food Cafe (a waste food ‘Pay as you can’ cafe on Thursdays).

We’d love to welcome you in person, but if you would like to find out more about us, or our partners, or are simply looking for more information on our events and activities, then select from the menus above to find out more, or see some of our key events below.
