The Church celebrated its centenary in 2011 - and has a very imposing building built in 1911. Various other premises have been added over the years to create an impressive suite of rooms. The interior of the Church itself has been transformed in recent years - and now offers a flexible space for worship and other activities.

The main act of Worship takes place on Sunday morning at 10.00am. The congregation appreciate and are offered range of worship styles. For details of who is preaching, please see the worship page. A small Junior Church / Creche or some activity for children and young people is available during this service - so children are very welcome.

Holy Communion is celebrated one Sunday morning each month (usually on the first Sunday).

The church is also open every Thursday from 11.00am giving an opportunity for people, both members and from outside the church, to drop in for friendly chat and share in the prayer time at 11.45am.

"Time for Tea" is held in the Church on the first Wednesday of each month from 2.30pm to 4.00pm. - and restarted on 6th October.

The extensive premises are used by community groups.

A Facebook page for the church is now available at @coulsdonmethodist, which is also accessible via the Facebook tab on this site.
