About Us

The beautiful church of St Wilfrid stands on a site believed to have been first used for a church in the seventh century AD and an ancient church is mentioned in the Domesday survey of 1086.

Today we seek to be welcoming to people of all Christian traditions and to those new to the faith, to be dynamic to grow in the faith and love of Jesus Christ and to be bible based, proclaiming scripture in a relevant way to encourage its application in our daily lives.

We are committed to fellowship – encouraging people to get to know each other better and support fellow members and newcomers, both in practical ways and through prayer;  to family – to care and support all ages, giving dignity, respect and responsibility to all, whilst not forgetting to have fun; to community – to play a key role as a community resource in our town, by supporting those in need and engaging in mission by meeting with people where they are and, further afield – to supporting key charities and agencies nationally and internationally.
