Bedhampton Methodist Church (BMC) sits between Hulbert Road and Park Lane, Bedhampton, on the west side of the Borough of Havant, about 5 miles from Portsmouth , 10 from Chichester and 4 from Hayling Island. It has been in existence since 1958 when it was built to replace the older Methodist church next to Bedhampton Railway Station.
A small but loyal and friendly congregation meet every Sunday morning at 10.30 for worship. Services vary in style and approach depending on the preacher for that day. Several members including a worship leader, regularly plan and lead Local Arrangement services.
Inside the church, there is a fine organ which is played in services approximately twice a month. At other times, the HT 300 system of recorded music is used. The seating is a mixture of traditional pews and chairs and there is good access for wheelchairs. Attached to the church are two large halls, one with a stage and curtains, a smaller meeting room, a kitchen and toilets. Outside there are two car parks.
