Acomb Methodist Church
Acomb Methodist has launched several community engagement projects, and a Pioneering new church concept. The church is served by Rev Andy Lindley, John Bailey and Pioneer Fran Taylor, along with many other enthusiastic members of the church and community.
Board Game Church
We launch a new expression of church in September 2019 based around Board Gaming – not the old monopoly, scrabble games, but the modern, more interactive and engaging games. Family worship, with plenty of board game playing, but with bible study, prayers using gaming ideas.
Rescued from a bramble dense wilderness in 2013, the church family have been working to create and develop a community garden, quiet and worshipful retreat space since. Maintained by a group of volunteers drawn from the church and community, it offers a log cabin, a summerhouse, and seating in this quiet plot behind the church. From September 2019 we will also be working with partners to offer low cost counselling, and we run quiet days, and cell groups monthly.
Our community cafe has been running for almost two years now. Serving Barista style coffees, a selection of teas and cold drinks, and some nice cakes, it runs twice weekly. Thursdays it runs alongside craft and chat a group making cards, knitting, cross stitch you name it. Fridays it operates alongside a multitude of toddler and children’s groups. It is very popular, not least because we are truly baby and toddler friendly, with space to play, and park the buggies and prams.
Acomb Community cinema has been running since 2016. Started through a social media campaign, it meets monthly and regularly runs at capacity. Showing a variety of films, from the newly released, to the classic it has become the place to be on a Friday night in Acomb.
