Welcome to

The Well

The Methodist Church in North Colchester

incorporating Mile End, West Bergholt & Boxted Methodist Churches


We are delighted that you have found our website, and hope that you enjoy reading about us. Please feel free to contact us, and to pop in to any of our services and events.

We are a friendly congregation living in a quiet residential area of North Colchester, which is growing in size significantly in an exciting way. Our Church and Halls are in regular use for services and community events, and we play our full part in the life of the community. We look forward to meeting you!

Our Mission Statement


To work together to serve our Lord Jesus Christ in worship, nurture, service and witness. Our aims are to:

  • Increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love

  • Help people grow and learn as Christians, through mutual support and care

  • Be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice

  • Make more followers of Jesus Christ


It is with sadness that we have to announce that worship services in Methodist Churches are suspended for the time being in line with Government guidance.​

Here at The Well, we recognise that these are uncertain and challenging times for everyone. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We pray for those sick with the virus; for the doctors, nurses, health workers and other care givers, and all who support them in their work; and for those who are seeking ways to combat the spread of the virus. We pray too for those impacted in other ways: bereaved; worried about loved ones; frightened and alone at home; or anxious about their jobs and businesses; and for the most vulnerable in our communities and those who care for them.

Advice is changing rapidly and we are doing our utmost to keep pace with it, following guidance given to churches by the Methodist Church and by the UK Government.  For more information, please visit the following websites:

Coronavirus (COVID-19) UK Government Response

Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance for churches 

Whilst we are unable to gather for worship, we can continue our daily routine of prayer - and the Colchester Methodist Circuit has services and prayers here.

More Than a Church

The Well welcomes anyone who seeks to know God’s love,

and invite invite you to open your heart

and allow His grace to penetrate into your soul.

We are part of the growing community in Myland, and look forward to establishing a new worshipping community in the new development at Chesterwell. In the meantime, we worship in the present and pray and plan for the future, in the existing premises of Mile End Methodist Church, Nayland Road, Colchester.

It will be a great joy to welcome you as a visitor, enquirer or a regular member!
