Newchurch - Closed for Worship but groups still meeting

Newchurch Methodist sadly closed for worship permanently this year but we hope the building can still look forward to a positive future and you can watch this space for further development on alternative uses for the building. 

Some groups will continue to use the building such as the Brownies and Guides, please contact your group leader to find out if this is the case for your group. 


Newchurch Methodist Church





Parking: Very limited space near the church, narrow lane down. We recommend you park on the street where you can or on one of the side roads.
