Welcome to Wilby Church. Please see the news and notices, services and events pages for details.
Our focus in Wilby is to be a visible example of the presence and love of God within our church family and wider community
Outreach via hospitality has been central to the church for many years, but obviously this had to be curtailed due to covid – we are restarting our monthly drop-in and hope to start other events in the very near future. We are always looking for new ideas to expand our outreach into the wider community, either on a parish or benefice level.
As members of a rural community we are very aware of the pressures on our environment and are actively investigating how we can become kinder to the world around us through Eco Church both practically and spiritually.
The church building dedicated to St Mary is set within a beautifully kept churchyard. The tower houses one of the best eight bell peals in the country. The treasures within the church are varied from flags, mediaeval pew ends, as well as the vapours of the prayers and worship of generations past, and one of our greatest treasures the current people who live and worship within and without the building.
