Withern's second Wesleyan Methodist chapel was built on Main Street in 1875. The building was extended and remodelled in 1901 and 1962.

This church, built of red brick, dates mainly from the early nineteenth century. The chancel, heavily restored in 1875, is the oldest part; the nave was reconstructed in 1812. The bellcote is the most recent addition.

It is surprising that the church in this relatively large and apparently thriving village should become redundant. (There are very few if any villages in Lincolnshire where there is a school but no Anglican church. This is especially odd at Withern where the school, St Margaret's, has Church of England Controlled status.)

The church was declared redundant in 1980 and was converted for residential use.
