Church Services

Welcome to  Sanderstead Methodist Church

Sunday morning at 1030 am we have our main service.  This usually lasts just over an hour and there is an opportunity for tea or coffee and a chat with others after the service.

If you are visiting us for a service and are unfamiliar with what happens, have a word with the person on the door and we’ll find someone to sit near you and guide you.

For most services all the words you will use are on the projector screen as are all the songs/hymns.

Please see the  Notices  link for this week’s and next week’s services:
