EFM is closed due to the COVID-19 Lockdown restrictions but will open again on 6 December. We continue to provide services via Zoom and worship at home material. (Please see below for details).


We are entering the period of advent that leads up to Christmas.

The word Advent means arrival or coming, especially for one who is awaited. We await the coming of Christ and look forward to retelling the story of his birth on Christmas Day.

To help us on our Advent journey, we have created an online Advent Calendar. If you click here you’ll be able to open one door each day from 1 December until Christmas Eve. Look out for the weekly themes: Hope (1-7 December), God’s messengers (8-15 December), Mary the mother of Jesus (16-21 December), and the Christmas Story (22-24 December).

East Finchley Methodist Church (EFM) is a vibrant church with much to offer the community in which it is situated. It is part of the Barnet and Queensbury Circuit, which falls within the London District of the Methodist Church.

East Finchley Methodist Church fulfills Christ's calling and lives it out through its worship and mission.

Services are held each Sunday at 10.30 am.

Each Thursdays (during school term time) Wesley's Coffee Bar is open provides a space for the community to meet.

We host a monthly concert, Live Music at EFM, on the second Sunday in the month (Except January and August).

We invite you to come and find out more about the people who call themselves Methodists.


We are now open for worship and community use. To allow this to continue there are restrictions dependent upon the activity, in general these are: 

  • 2m social distancing.

  • Face coverings must be worn (except for those who are exempt).

  • Reduced attendance numbers.

  • Frequent hand washing and hand santising.

  • Frequent cleaning and sanitising of touch points.

  • Singing, wind instruments and the consumption of food and drink (except bottled water) are not permitted

  • It is regretted that those who are who are extremely vulnerable and those showing symptoms of COVID-19 may not attend.

If you like further details or a copy of the risk assessment please email info@eastfinchleymethodist.org.uk

We remember that God remains the eternal Creator.  God is not diminished by the actions we must take, but responses to the world’s struggle and suffering.  In Jesus Christ we have a resurrection presence who is both the hope and the light of the world.  We maybe unable to meet for corporate worship at this time, but we can still worship and pray, and become a ‘church’ in a new and different way.  We may be physically dispersed and separated by circumstance, but always spiritually united in Christ.

Please stay safe.
