About Nettleton

We are a small and welcoming church who want to glorify God through our worship and service within our quiet residential community. 

Methodism came to Nettleton in 1796 in the homes of Henry Spring, Zechariah Featherstone and Robert Appleby. The chapel was built in 1800, enlarged in 1847 and the schoolroom, kitchen and toilet added in 1912.

The Primitive Methodist Chapel (across the road) was built in 1858, but when its lease expired in 1957 it was agreed to unite the two societies and worship in the present chapel, which was renovated and re-opened in 1957. The main worship area and a school room are linked by a removable screen which makes the space very flexible. In 2002 the kitchen and toilet facilities were updated, followed by repairs to the roof and exterior brickwork. This work uncovered an unknown Ironstone wall, which has now been restored to its former glory.

 

Worship

Our weekly services are usually held at 2:00PM every Sunday. Occasionally we also open for a 6:00PM Evening service. In addition a Joint service is held with the Parish Church 4 times a year and held in Church and Chapel alternately.

  • Help for Afghan Crisis and Refugees

    We have been asked to look at what we might do to support Afghan Refugees arriving in this country. Rev. Louise has spoken to West Lindsey District Council who have as yet made no plans to receive any refugees. However the Government’s warm welcome programme which was announced on 18th August 2021 has not been opened nor have details been given to local councils. West Lindsey will hold a meeting after these are announced to decide on their pledge. They did not take any Syrian Refugees on a similar programme (data from an internet document of all Lincolnshire Councils).

    If you have a strong opinion on this I would suggest writing to the Leader of the council, Cllr. Owen Bierley whose contact details can be found HERE.

  • Increase in Scams

    There seem to be a number of scams using Christian terms at the moment. Please be very careful. Never reply to such a text or email. Rather contact the person by a different means to check. Your Ministers will not ask you to purchase gift cards on their behalf by email or text. Please let us know if you receive such an email or text so we can pass the information on to Action Fraud and the Police.
