Lancaster Methodist Church

You will find a warm, welcoming and relatively informal group of people of all ages at our Church. We aim to be an inclusive Christian community, with a deep commitment to justice and peace, which affirms and values everyone. We hope that you will find a welcome among us, whether you just want to visit or you are seeking somewhere to belong. We invite you to share the journey of faith with us - a journey which can be exciting, but can also be daunting. We do not claim to have all the answers, but we are committed to exploring the questions and welcome others who want to journey with us.

Sunday Worship

10.30am at Scotforth Road

Worship with a variety of ingredients - readings, videos, sermons, conversation, meditations, drama, prayers, with a mix of modern and traditional songs. There is provision for all ages including an area for parents with very young children, Junior Church and Youth Fellowship. We usually have Holy Communion once each month - all are welcome to receive the bread and wine. Our morning worship is followed by refreshments.

6.30pm at The Cornerstone, Sulyard Street, near Dalton Square

A relaxed and informal service, addressing contemporary issues, with plenty of sharing. During the week, The Cornerstone also has a Community Cafe open 9am-3pm - pop-in for refreshments while you’re in town.

Quiet Time

A chance to sit and be still in the midst of all the busyness. Rediscover the power of silence.

The Prayer Tree

Join us in prayer for our community and to respond to prayer requests that cafe users have expressed.

Reflect in the City

6:30pm every Wednesday at The Cornerstone

This quiet reflective service includes meditative singing (using songs from Taize / Iona etc.), and provides a real midweek spiritual oasis. The chants are simple and easy to learn and you don’t need to be a musician or a good singer to join in. The service is open to all, from any faith background or none.
