The Promenade Methodist Church enjoys a prominent position on the Douglas sea front, in the middle of Loch Promenade. The present building opened in 1976, replacing the old Loch Parade church and the Victoria Street church.

We have three Ministers looking after the Prom, along with the other churches in the Central Circuit – Rev Dr Janet Corlett, Rev Richard Hooton, who works part-time, and Rev Johanna Smart. Rev Corlett is also District Chair/Superintendent Minister for the Methodist Church on the Isle of Man.

The church is registered for christenings, weddings and funerals. On 30th November 2023 the church was also registered for the solemnization of marriages between same-sex couples.

Our Sunday morning Services are at 10.30 a.m. Hymns and readings are projected onto a large screen, but printed material is also available. The Service is also streamed live on Zoom for those who wish to attend but are unable to in person.

The congregation lives mainly in Douglas and Onchan but a number travel in from further afield. We also welcome friends old and new who are visiting the Island on holiday, particularly during the summer.

As well as being a place of worship, we wish to serve the community. For example, Café Lingo is an outreach of the Prom Church. People whose first language is not English come together on Saturday mornings for help with learning English and learning about life on the Island in a relaxed way over a cuppa. It also has a parents and tots group on Friday mornings.

Because of its location and facilities the building is used by a variety of community groups and organisations during the week e.g Alcoholics Anonymous, Weightwatchers, Citizens Advice, dance and theatre groups, model racing cars, business groups, etc.. We are the home of the One World Centre (Isle of Man) and the Manx Methodist Historical Society.

Rooms in the Promenade Church are available for hire at a reasonable rate. As well as the Sanctuary on the ground floor, we have a large hall on the second floor, a lounge and a kitchen on the first floor, and a medium-sized hall with rooms off it in the basement. The building has ramp access, a lift to upper floors, and disabled toilet facilities.
