Monthly Social events are held throughout the year e.g. Summer Fair, Palm Court Tea, Quiz Night, Christmas Bazaar and events for specific charities.
The Withern Singers use the church as a base, meeting on Monday evenings.
The Church is also used by St. Margaret's School, Withern, for services and events.
Established as a Wesleyan Methodist Congregation in 1811 the Withern Methodists moved into their new Chapel building in 1875 and have never stopped working as an important part of village society. We might be smaller in numbers than we were when the village had two chapels, but we are a hard working team, very active in the community, and strongly supported by the village and further afield too.
We have members of our congregation who live in Withern, Gayton le Marsh, Swaby, Woodthorpe and Thoresthorpe! – so the word is spreading!
We still have a Sunday school – one of a few in the East Lincolnshire Circuit and our regular activities include a Study Group, a weekly Craft Club and a social or charity event most months – and we love eating together!
We meet for Sunday Worship at 10.30am and often include the children in our service, and, of course, we enjoy a coffee and chat afterwards.
The village school uses the chapel for festival services and celebrations too.
Our building was modernised in 2000 and we have served hundreds of meals from our kitchen. Scores of onlookers had a hearty breakfast waiting to cheer on the Olympic flame in 2012!
We enjoy music and are a base for the Withern Singers who join us for their annual charity concerts and often add to our own events and celebrations.
The trustees host the Outreach Post Office, which now uses our small hall for two afternoons each week providing another important link with the community.
