Cowley Road Methodist Church Centre


We aim to have an event or special service every month at the church. For a list of our special services, see here. For more details about any of the events below, contact our Community Chaplain and Outreach Worker Libby.

Our next few events won't actually be at the church. Instead, we'll be joining with Methodists across the circuit (and further afield) to take part in city centre events. These include...
Oxford Council of Faiths Friendship Walk. Meeting at 5.30pm at the Jewish Centre in Richmond Road on Thursday 27th June.

The prayer walk starts at 6pm at the synagogue on Richmond Street, proceeds to St Giles and the University Church, and ends at the mosque off Cowley Road. All welcome
Cowley Road Carnival on the Sunday 1st September. We hope to open the church for free refreshments, a quiet space, children's activities and tours of the church. More info about the carnival 


Recent events we've had include

Joining with members of Wesley Memorial Church in the Oxford Pride Parade (June 2024). Members of our Knit & Stitch group crocheted rainbow hearts and LGBT octopodes (one in each of the 40 Pride flags) to give away during the parade - all were very warmly received.
