We meet together for Sunday worship each week. Normally we gather at 10.30am for coffee and cakes, with the 'main event' getting under way at 11.00am. However, we have set aside some Sundays to seek out God's vision for our Church. These days are shown in the Calendar.
Until we have our own dedicated spiritual space in Wixams we are meeting in the Munson Room at Lakeview Village Hall in the centre of the village.
As a new church in a new community, flexibility is at the heart of what we do, as we seek a pattern and style of worship that will have a broad appeal. But at it's heart will be music and song; teaching and prayer together.
Our aim is to make our services accessible to committed believers and enquirers alike; and relaxed and family friendly, as we seek to respond to God's love for the world by modelling our lives on the teaching and example of Jesus.
As an ecumenical congregation we will draw on the best of our various denominational traditions, while not being unduly constrained by any; and always looking to freash ways of expressing our faith that are relevant and meaningful in the 21st century.
Holy Communion is a fundamental part of Christian worship and therefore has a significant place in our worship programme. As we are currently without a minister, we celebrate Holy Communion whenever a minister from the Methodist or Baptist church can visit us.
Baptism - sometimes called Christening - is the universally recognised rite of entry into the Christian Church (both a local congregation and the worldwide Church); and we are delighted that this also forms a vital part of our worship here at Wixams Church.
As an ecumenical congregation we recognise both infant baptism - where a young child is brought into the church by Christian parents; and also Adult Baptism - or Believers Baptism - where a candidate who is of age makes their own personal promises and commitment to the Christian way of life.
