Welcome to Newtown United Methodist Church. Come see all we have to offer!

Original Structure

Our Sanctuary is a large, open space that is wheelchair accessible and seats approximately 200 parishioners.

Our conference facility is a parlor-type space that comfortably seats 15 guests. A hub for smaller gatherings, the Bett’s Conference Room hosts meetings and small group discussions regularly.

Later Additions

Comprised of a newly renovated kitchen and dining area, Rauner Hall is located on the lower level of the church. Used as a fellowship space for our church and community members alike. The number of allowed guests varies by specified use.

The addition of Wesley Hall in 1993 is home to the Wesley Learning Center preschool . Connected to the original building via the “bridge,” Wesley Hall remains quiet during the summer months, but quickly becomes filled with joy as our children return to their classrooms following Labor Day Weekend. 

Outdoor Spaces

Accessible from the church lawn near WLC or the sidewalk along Church Hill Road, the Ruth Watkins Memorial Garden is a beautiful space open for all to enjoy. Accented with marble benches, it is the site of our special services. A picnic bench is also available on the nearby lawn which makes for wonderful, impromptu picnic lunches.

Our Outdoor Sanctuary is located to the rear of the church property along the beautiful Pootatuck River. Wooden benches seat around 20 worshippers, and additional open space provides ample room for people to bring their own lawn seating. The path to the outdoor sanctuary is wheelchair accessible although the slope of the ground is uneven in places.
