Hello! We are Hetton Independent Methodist Church

Due to Coronavirus, our usual Sunday meetings at 10:30am and 5:30pm as well as our Sunday School at 2:00pm and all midweek meetings are suspended until further notice.

‘God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.’

These words of Psalm 46:1 come as a calm to our fears and a refreshment to our souls. In troubled times, our lives will change but we can run to our unchanging God for shelter and for strength. Part of these changes will be that all our services, meetings and small groups will not be gathering together in person until further notice. As a church we have taken this decision in light of the latest Government guidance.

Even though we won’t be meeting physically in our building or in our homes, we are trialling new ways in which we will be able to stay connected with each other as a church during this time.

One way we are continuing to meet is through Zoom at 10:30am on a Sunday morning and at 7:15pm on a Monday evening for our Prayer Meeting.

You can continue to use the contact form to get in touch with us at this time.

‘The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord cause his face to shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face towards you and give you peace.’ (Numbers 6:24-26)


Hetton IM Church is a a community of ordinary people whose lives have been changed by the good news of Jesus Christ. Our greatest desire is to glorify God as we help each other know God and to live out our faith in Jesus together.

Anyone is welcome to come along to any of our meetings or activities; you don’t have to be ‘religious’.

We try to make what we do understandable and helpful to people today.

We look forward to seeing you at Hetton IM Church soon. On Sundays we meet at 10.30am and 5.30pm, where you can expect solid Bible preaching and teaching. Our Sunday School meets at 2:00pm each Sunday and caters for youngster from the age of 3 upwards.

Throughout each week there is also a calendar of meetings and other activities for all age groups that help to serve everyone within Hetton IM Church, and, occasionally, there are extra events, including guest speakers from near and far.

Hetton I.M. Church is not just open for services on a Sunday. Throughout the week there are groups and activities that meet which may be of interest to you. Have a look at the “Weekly Activities’ page.
