The congregation meets for Sunday worship  at 11.00 (currently on-line)

There was a communion service held in the Emery Hall in September 2020, with numbers limited for safe distancing; there was no music or singing and the eucharist was distributed from a tray - 'help-yourself' style!


The meeting was successfully achieved with the help of staff and stewards and the co-operation of the congregation, who had to resist shaking hands, or hugging!  



Currently all activities suspended 

Children and young people

Poplar Methodist Church is greatly blessed in having a strong and committed group of children and young people who attend on Sunday.  These young people have a strong sense of commitment to each other and their Sunday group activities are an important part of their commitment to Jesus and supporting their growing faith. 

Healthy Church

The congregation at Poplar have committed themselves to finding ways in which we can grow in our faith and find ways to serve the wider community in response to God’s love for us.  At the heart of that renewed commitment is a desire to be energised by faith.

We have committed ourselves to:

Providing every member of the congregation with devotional material so that no matter where we are on each day, we will be joined together in study, reflection and prayer. 

Using Sunday differently, making use of a more interactive style of worship that will encourage a greater sense of commitment and sense of belonging.

Encouraging members to share in worship something of the way God is at work in their lives through either testimony or interview.

Ensuring that there is always time in worship for the sharing of news, the joining together in celebration and the focusing on issues of concern whether they be, personal, local, national or international
