Ainsdale Methodist Church is a warm, friendly, caring Church at the heart of the Ainsdale Community. Our mission statement is to share locally and globally in the whole Church’s purpose of worshipping God and caring for people. We aim to do this through our varied programme of worship, study and fellowship activities and our support of Aindasle Lunch and Leisure.
Our usual times of worship are:
Sunday 10.45 am. Holy Communion is usually the first Sunday of the month. On the third Sunday of the month, we join Ainsdale Village Chuch for their service at 9.45 am.
Wednesday 10am. Midweek prayers are held in the Memorial Hall.

The Octave choir performs a variety of music from choral arrangements of popular classics, through show tunes to light classical. Most of our performances take place in the Southport area and raise money for various charitable causes.
Open: Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 10.00 – 14.00
Opening at 10.00am the café provides visitors and members with a light and airy place to socialise over a cup of tea or coffee with options to enjoy a light lunch or snack such as sandwiches, soup, toast or tea cakes. Manned by volunteers it is an ideal location to relax with views of Ainsdale across the Village Green.
We are looking for more volunteers to help serve refreshments, even for just one Morning/Afternoon a week, or to cover for holidays. Helping in the Chapel Café is a great way to meet new people!
Alternatively, why not book in for a two-course meal with drinks? Available: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Zest For Life
Bible study is about learning what the most enduring book in the world has to say about you and how you live your life. This is enhanced by interaction with others on a similar quest.
You don’t have to be a Christian to learn more about how this book has shaped our world.
Thursdays 1pm to 3pm
We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
Impact Youth is a community youth project we help to facilitate in the Ainsdale area. Engagement of young people with church through traditional Sunday services and fellowship groups is very sparse (<5%). However, the Churches Together in Ainsdale have seen this as a creative opportunity. They partner together to provide something alternative, which aims to take the ethos and success of our secondary school, Safe Spaces and shine this same light into the local community through a wonderful church partnership.
As with our lunchtime sessions in secondary school, we aim to create a safe space for the young people attending Impact to explore the big issues of life and faith.
Currently meeting in the cafe/lounge and sports hall at Ainsdale Methodist Church, we transform the space once a week into a youth venue with big screens, games consoles, lights, music, chill-out space and a variety of sports.
As with lunchtimes, we provide an opportunity for young people to rate their mental health and wellbeing with our traffic light system as they arrive.
The membership at Ainsdale Methodist Church firmly believe that Church premises should be used seven days a week, not just on a Sunday. To support this belief we have four rooms available for hire which will cater for gatherings of from 8 to 150 people. The rooms are available for one session or repeated sessions Ainsdale Methodist Church has a strict no smoking, no gambling and no alcohol policy covering all of their premises.
- The smallest room we have can accommodate a meeting of 8 to 10 people.
- The next size room can accommodate a meeting of 12 to 14 people.
- We have a small hall which is suitable for gatherings of up to 50 people.
- The large hall will cater for a maximum of 150 people.
Tables and chairs are available for use in all rooms. We also have a catering standard kitchen where tea and coffee or lightmeals can be prepared. The preparation of refreshments, if required, is the responsibility of the group making the booking.
