Welcome to Southlands Methodist Church

We are very pleased to say, we are now fully up and running. We have systems in place to ensure everyone’s safety, and are welcoming back many groups and activities.

Art At Southlands

South Bank Studios

South Bank Studios is also open, with artists in residence and workshops, both on-site and on-line. Do check out the South Bank Studios website for details and links to the artist’s own pages.

‘My Bubble’ Gallery

We are now showing the South Bank Studios, community art project – capturing our experience of a year of change, in a bubble


Seek Art School

Our partners ‘Seek Art School’ have also begun to run workshops again, on-site and on-line so please check out our events diary to join them. seek-art-school.

Gallery Cafe

Our new weekly Saturday ‘Gallery Cafe’, where art is on display and for sale, alongside barista coffees, drinks and home made cakes. Do drop in.


Now we have reached September, our Sunday 10:30am worship takes place physically in the church each week. Sometimes led, in person, and other times we join our sister church at Acomb online through a live stream.

If you cannot get to our church physically, there remains the option of joining our sister churches, through Zoom, or livestream too.

We also make available a set of video reflections each week, on YouTube and Facebook, which you can watch at your convenience (scroll down for more info). We do, however, also meet physically each Wednesday at 2:30pm for a simple prayer service (when lockdowns allow), which is a smaller gathering.

To join in our Virtual Worship, do join us for ‘Zoom on Sunday’ (Virtual worship) – click on the image above for more information, or use the details below to join us online.

A new opportunity is to join us for a short 10-15 minute Morning 7:30am or Evening 9:00pm prayer time. You can also physically join at Acomb 9:30am on Sundays, and at Southlands at 2:30pm Wednesdays.

Below is a recording of the most recent circuit service. If you would like to watch future services 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.

Finally, our new family worship time ‘ONE Family’ met once again in July. If you missed it, and would like to engage, watch the enclosed video, and hopefully join us next time 6-7pm for the next live zoom!

Southlands Methodist is an unusual Methodist church, in that as well as being a place of worship, and a variety of community activities, we are home to South Bank Studios (a community of artist in residence), 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 first, or are simply looking for more information on our events and activities, then select from the menus above to find out more about us, or see some of our key events below.
