Westbury Methodist Church  

The Church was built in 1925, the Society formerly meeting at Warminster Road,  behind the then butchers shop and freemasons premises.  The present building has a beautiful high arch shaped ceiling, which enhances the singing of the congregation.   This with the movable chairs and Pulpit makes the Church building suitable for many different events.   For example a quiz evening is held in the Autumn followed by supper, invites are sent to all the Churches in the town, and a good response is generally made.

Worship Information

Services take place at 10.30am and 6pm.  Coffee and tea follow the morning service. The evening service is held jointly with the Church of England, meeting at the Methodist Church in the Winter and the Parish Church in the Summer.   Easter and Christmas services are held with the United Reformed Church.  Our Church also has a Prayer Circle which is appreciated by members of the congregation.

Unfortunately we do not have a Junior Church at the moment, but if young people do attend a service an effort is made to accommodate them.

WOMEN'S WORLD DAY OF PRAYER   FRIDAY 6TH MARCH 2015

We were pleased to host this year's service which was attended by members and friends from the URC, All Saints Parish Church, West End Baptist Church, St Bernadette's Roman Catholic Church, Westbury Leigh & Stormore Baptist Church and Hawkeridge Congregational Church.  Ladies and gentlemen from all the churches took part in what was a very meaningful and all inclusive service.  The church looked suitably tropical with splendid flower arrangements, fruit, shells and other decorations. 

The ladies all wore fabric flowers in their hair or garlands round their necks.  The fellowship continued after the services with cakes and tea.  Many thanks to all those who took part and those who decorated the church so beautifully.

The three ladies are Hilary Herring, Priscilla Gray and Kathryn Cundick.  (fame at last!!)
