Welcome to the Wixams Church website
An Advent Message
December 1st sees the beginning of Advent – the proper beginning of the Christmas season.
Centuries before Jesus was born, Old Testament Prophets foretold His coming. Before Jesus began His work, John the Baptist called people to prepare themselves – to ‘get right with God’ as we might say.
Advent is our opportunity to do just that, as we open ourselves afresh – or maybe for the first time – to the amazing reality of God entering in to our common life, in the person of Jesus Christ; who – through His life and ministry; His death and resurrection – creates a bridge between God and humankind; and so helps us to understand more of the truly awesome reality of God’s love for all people.
It is the beginning of that work; the coming, the birth of Jesus; that we prepare for in Advent and celebrate at Christmas.
We warmly invite you to join us in our preparations and celebrations this season.
On Sunday 22nd December, at 6.00pm we will be holding a special Village Carol Service.
All residents and friends are most warmly invited to join us at Lakeview Village Hall for a service of carols, readings and reflections, as we take time out to be reminded of the true meaning of Christmas.
The service will be followed by mince pies and mulled wine (or alternatives).
Wixams Church is a new Ecumenical Church, which aims to serve this new and growing community. Please have a look around our web site to find out more about who we are and what we do.
'Church' will mean different things to different people. We have come together in Wixams, seeking to create a spiritual heart for our village as it grows.
We are a partnership of Baptist, Church of England, Methodist and United Reformed Church Christians; also working in association with the Roman Catholic Church where possible.
We welcome all, from any tradition or none, who are interested in finding out more of the meaning and significance of the Christian faith for the 21st Century.
We meet at 10.30 on Sunday mornings at Lakeview village Hall; and warmly invite you to join us, as together we seek to discover more of Jesus Christ and his teaching and influence on the world.
If you want to know more, do get in touch; we'd love to hear from you.
We are also running a Messy Church
Messy Church is a fun and informal meeting for all the family.

After a very necessary break during November, Wixams Messy Church is delighted to be back for December. We meet as usual, at Lakeview Village Hall, on the first and third Thursday afternoons.
On December 6th we will be exploring the theme of Jesus as Light of the World.
Then, December 19th sees our final session of the year as we remind ourselves of the real reason why we celebrate Christmas – the birth of Jesus Christ.
Please do join us. We look forward to welcoming you.
