Services

During the present time…

On this link you will find this Sunday’s service sheet. This has been designed so that it can be used in one of three ways:

  1. You can either pray through it on your own, or
  2. you can join in with other people via the telephone at 10am on Sunday morning ;
  3. If you would prefer to watch online, then I will be ‘going live’ on Facebook at 12:00, repeating the reading, the sermon and leading some short prayers.

Praying on your own

If you’re using this on your own then there are some links to hymns on YouTube that you might like to listen to.

Joining by phone

To join the Sunday service first dial this number:

03300 945 940

(N.B. calls to ‘03’ numbers are charged at the standard national rate and are included in your ‘free minutes’ if you have a call-plan)

When prompted, enter the room number, followed by # on your telephone keypad: 60527473 #

Finally, enter the guest PIN: 2656 #

You may have to listen to some announcements, but you will then be automatically joined to the conference call. Join in with the responses in the liturgy as you would normally.

Please try and dial-in at 9:55, as it may take a little while for everyone to be connected.

For those joining in by phone, we will not be including the hymns during the service, but suggest that you could listen to them before or after the service.

Watching on-line

If you would prefer to watch online, then I will be ‘going live’ on Facebook at 12:00, where I will repeat the reading, the sermon and lead some short prayers. Please go to our Facebook page Wroughton & Wichelstowe Parish Church.

For people without access to email

People who don’t have access to email are being given a more generic paper order of service that will allow them to pray privately or join in on the phone, but without the reading etc. included. If you know someone who doesn’t have email and would like to be included in this, please let me know so that I can drop something through their letterbox.

In normal times…

Located on the southern edge of Swindon, we are confident that you will be able to find a style of worship that suits you, and we look forward to welcoming you to one of our services. Please contact us if you would like further information.

Contemporary

‘Church at 4’ meets at the Parish Church Hall at 4pm each Sunday and takes an informal, contemporary approach, which we hope will be welcoming to anyone and everyone. The service provides opportunities for sung worship, interactive teaching and prayer. Arrive at 3:50 and grab a cuppa and a slice of cake!

We also offer a dedicated programme for children, including a creche.

Mainstream

Our Parish Communion at 10.00am each Sunday is taken from the Church of England’s Common Worship. The service is celebrated by one of the clergy, but many other members of the congregation participate in various ways.

Children are welcome at all of our services and children’s activities are available in the baptistry area where helpers are always on hand.

After the service we gather for coffee and refreshments. The service is attended by about 70 people.
