As Christians following ‘A Methodist Way of Life’, sharing together in worship is important to us. Both in-person and online, we read and reflect on the Bible, pray, sing and share words together

Sunday Worship

On the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sundays of the month worship is at 10.30am at both Walcot Methodist Chapel (see map) and Southdown Methodist Church Centre,  (see map).

On the 4th Sunday of the month, we worship all together at 10.30am, alternating between the two sites.  If there is a 5th Sunday we usually have a special themed service at one of the sites – or elsewhere! Here are the 4th/5th Sundays coming up:

Sunday 31 December – ‘Worship Together’ Cafe-style worship at Southdown. 
Sunday 28 January – ‘Worship Together at Southdown’
Sunday 25 February – ‘Worship Together’ at Walcot

Holy Communion takes place monthly at both worship centres, usually on the 1st or 2nd Sunday of the month.

On the 1st Sunday of the month, there is also Morning Prayer at 9am at Walcot Chapel (in the downstairs hall) followed by a simple breakfast.
