The renewed lock-down means that the Church building is again closed until December 2nd - with the only exception being "support groups".
Coulsdon Methodist Church is the main Methodist Church serving the centre of Coulsdon. It is just north of and on the edge of the main commercial centre of Coulsdon.
Another Methodist Church - Whitethorn Avenue - operates in another part of Coulsdon, between the Clockhouse estate (which is in the borough of Sutton) and Woodmansterne station.

The mission of Coulsdon Methodist Church is to:
- Serve God
- Serve the people of the neighbourhood
- Be a vibrant, open, broadly based Christian community, caring for all ages and meeting together for worship, fellowship and learning
- Encourage others to explore the Christian faith based on the message and person of Jesus
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 a range of worship styles. For details of who is preaching, please see the worship page.
Holy Communion is celebrated one Sunday morning each month (usually on the first Sunday).
A Breakfast Bible Study is held before the service on the second Sunday of each month, from 8.45am.
The church is also open every Thursday from 10.30am for coffee 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 last Wednesday of each month (except December) from 2.30pm to 4.00pm.
Some of the Church events have their own posters - and these are found on the separate posters page.
There are 2 active house groups. Members are actively involved in Churches Together in Coulsdon and local social action groups. They are keen to work with other churches in the area.
The extensive premises are heavily used by community groups.
A Facebook page for the church is now available at @coulsdonmethodist, or accessible via the Facebook tab on this site.
