This year our harvest service had to be different as a result of COVID 19, therefore, we enjoyed fellowship with each other at an outdoor service in our car park.
Instead of singing as a congregation, we enjoyed listening to ourselves singing the usual harvest hymns accompanied by our organist from the service two years ago.
Our Church is normally decorated with lovely Harvest displays within the Church, but unfortunately this couldn't happen this year. This however, didn't stop us and so some bales of straw were placed in front of the Church and a few ladies created a wonderful display of vegatables and flowers to brighten up the front of the Church. Then instead of us having our annual auction of produce from within the Church raising money for a local charity we decided this year to support the local food bank at New Life Church.
Our Church is currently only open for Worship on a Sunday, all other activities are suspended until further notice.
Lower Withington is a thriving & caring community and everyone is welcome to join our Sunday Worship.
See our Church Services for more information, this will also show our special Services held during the year.

Lower Withington Methodist Church was built in 1808 and opened on Easter Sunday.
The brass band continues with the tradition that started in 1856 playing Carols through the village on the Monday night before Christmas, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day morning.
The minister, local vicar and their congregations meet:
- on a local farm on Rogation Sunday to bless the livestock and crops
- at the Parish Hall for the village Carol Service.
