West Bergholt Methodist Church

West Bergholt Methodist Church

From 1st September 2019 the Methodist Churches at Mile End, Boxted and West Bergholt have amalgamated to form The Well Methodist Church. They will be worshipping together at the former Mile End church building.

For more Information please see The Well Methodist Church page and the Well website.


After 139 years of Methodist Ministry in our Chapel in West Bergholt, and after much prayer and discussion among our members, a decision was made to cease Sunday worship at the end of August 2018. With an ageing congregation and numbers falling we sadly decided that it was no longer reasonable to continue regular Sunday morning services.

The Church and Hall have been closed since the beginning of the pandemic lockdown. Furthermore, the site has been up for sale since we ceased to hold services in the Chapel. An offer has ben accepted and negotiations are continuing to finalise the sale.

Service Times

There will no longer be services in the Methodist Chapel in West Bergholt on Sunday mornings. Sunday morning services will take place at “The Well” Methodist Church, Mile End at 10-30am. We hope to be able to offer transport again once regulations allow, leaving the village at 10.00am. If you would like a lift please contact Judith (01206 241969) or Andrew (01206 242511).

Who are we?

We are a group of Christians from different backgrounds, meeting to share in worship, learning, fellowship and service to others.

We are in a growing village (population circa 3,500), popular with commuters (nearness to North Station) but distinct from Colchester, being separated by A12. The church is situated in the centre of the village. The present church building was built in 1879 but there has been a Methodist presence in the village even longer.

The small fellowship has a significant profile within the community through a variety of well supported regular activities.
