Witton Gilbert Methodist Church is a small and very visible feature of the village, being situated at a major road junction. It has been re-ordered to be flexible for the needs of worship and community use. Various groups in the community, including WI and drama club who regularly use the hall.

A new kitchen and a toilet for disabled people have been installed. We are putting the kitchen to good use by welcoming the people of the village to monthly coffee mornings and, from time to time, we invite them to join us for fellowship and a three course meal.
