The Methodist Church is the venue for a number of community, social and fundraising events.

Sadly, thieves have struck here several times and the church was damaged when the lead flashing was stolen from the roof. In one such attack, the thieves even stole the door handle!
However, thanks to the generosity of the bidders at the New Inn Charity Auction on Wednesday 18th April 2012, £100 was donated to the church to help towards the cost of repairing the roof. Altogether, the New Inn managed to raise a magnificent £824!
The remainder was split between Wakefield Hospice and Yorkshire Air Ambulance with both charities receiving £362 each.
