New to Church?

You're welcome!

If you're new to WCC, you're very welcome - whether you are a Christian, someone who is investigating faith, or just inquisitive about what goes on! If you've not been to Church before, or haven't been in a while, here's some answers to common questions, to help you feel at home.
If you're after a map of where we meet, you can find one here.

What are the timings?

We meet every Sunday morning at 10:30am, and the service lasts up to an hour and a half.

What does a morning service include?

There's some variety in our Sunday meetings, but most of them include the following key elements:

What should I wear?

Come in your casual clothes, and you'll fit right in. There's no dress code.

What about kids?

Our style of meeting is quite informal, and kids are encouraged to join in with the worship as much as they feel comfortable. About 30 minutes into the service, our young people head out to separate groups around the school building, where they have a mix of age-appropriate activities and discussions. One of our welcome team will help you find which groups your children would fit in, and you're welcome to go with them if you'd like to.

Do you make provision for disabilities?

We want our community to be accessible to everyone, and already have some measures in place to help with wheelchair access. There is a disabled toilet available during the service. However, disabilities come in many different forms, so if you're concerned, or if you have a question about a particular need, please do get in touch at office@wheatleycommunitychurch.org.

What if I'm not a Christian? Or if I'm not sure what I believe?

Like we said - you're most welcome. Our heart is that everyone who comes through the doors should experience God's love and have a chance to explore that as much as they want to. If you have questions and want to talk, or would like to pray with someone, we'd love to do that - but nobody will force a conversation or a viewpoint on you!
