During the present time…

To help keep everybody safe during the pandemic, we’re doing some things a bit differently. Our current pattern of Sunday worship is:

8:00 Holy Communion or Morning Prayer in church (traditional language).

10:00 Morning Worship/Holy Communion in church, on the telephone and live on YouTube.

4pm Church at 4 – on Zoom (see our Facebook page for details) and once a month in church for a family celebration.

  • To join us on the telephone at 10:00 please dial: 03300 945 940 (standard national rate call), followed by the Room Number: 60527473 # and then the PIN: 2656 #
  • Find us on YouTube here: Live on our YouTube channel or search for ‘Wroughton and Wichelstowe Parish Church’.

Attending services in the church building:

The need for social distancing means that the capacity of the church building is limited. There is also a legal requirement for us to keep a record of everyone who attends our services for the purposes of Covid-19 track and trace. If you wish to attend a service in person then please can you book your place in advance each week.

For people who don’t use computers:

Each week we hand deliver a copy of the service sheet to people who don’t use computers, so that they can pray privately or join in with the service on the telephone. If you know someone who would like to be included in this, please let us know.

In more normal times…

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.
