Welcome to the Walworth Methodist Church Website
Message from the church office
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic our building is temporarily closed, but the mission and ministry of the church continues.
Our main sources of income, such as room lettings and the walk-up offering, are not available to us at the present time. Some of us may be going through financial uncertainty as a result of lost or changed employment, and that may affect the ability of some to give. This means that it is even more important that those of us who can give are able to do so.
Now more than ever, please consider giving generously to support our work. The easiest way to give is to by standing order or a one off donation via online banking. Our bank details are:

Thank you for your continued support, and may God bless you and keep you and this difficult time.
We are a diverse congregation of Christians seeking to love God and neighbour in all we do.
From just a handful of members in the 1970s the church has grown to become one of the largest and most dynamic congregations in British Methodism and supports a wide range of fellowships and activities. Whether you have just moved into the area, or are visiting, or looking for a church, we extend a warm welcome to you.
SUNDAYS AT WALWORTH
Sunday is the day when we, as a church, gather together.
Most Sundays there are two services, at 9.30am and 11am. The 9.30am service is a more ‘traditional’ Methodist service lasting about an hour. The 11am service is longer and reflects the African cultural background of the majority of our members, including African choruses, a walk-up offering, and a time to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and thanksgivings. Robed choirs assist in the leading of worship at both services, with the 11am choir often singing an anthem. Holy Communion is celebrated on the 3rd Sunday of each month at 9.30am and the 1st Sunday of each month at 11am. There are separate activities for children at the 11am service.
After Sunday worship, there is usually something going on at Walworth – we are a very busy church! Most Sundays at least one of our fellowships meets. Often there will be food, especially if a special thanksgiving service has taken place – or sometimes just because one of our members has something to celebrate and wants to share their joy with others.
ACTIVITIES AND PARTNERSHIPS
Walworth Methodist Church supports a number of fellowships that meet on Sundays and during the week, a lunch club for the elderly and a music school for young people. Details of these can be found on the ‘Church News’ page. We also work in partnership or provide a base for a number of community organisations, including Divine Rescue, Golden Oldies and Southwark Carers.
We are one of seven churches in the Southwark and Deptford Circuit of the Methodist Church.
