Christ the Word is an independent church plant. We started a Sunday service in the village hall once every two weeks in 2018. From October 2019 the church service is every Sunday morning. We are a Bible believing evangelical church.
Between twenty to thirty people of all ages come along to worship and to seek God, to learn from God’s Word and to chat afterwards. You will receive a warm welcome.
We have regular meals together, either after the Sunday service or Sunday tea time.
Our service on Remembrance Sunday is focused on remembering those who gave their lives. At Christmas we have a Sunday Carol Service (at 10:30am on the Sunday before Christmas) in the main hall, Lakeview village hall. We invite everyone, and in December 2018 about 80 people came to sing popular Christmas carols.
We seek to serve our local community by running Wixams Sunday Club (based on a traditional Sunday School, 3-4pm on a Sunday) and Ignite club tuesday 6.30-7.45pm for young people in year 6+. Since 2014 we have run a holiday club every year in the Easter holidays.
For those who are really serious about knowing God we have regular Bible studies for women on a Thursday morning and a regular Bible study in a home on a Thursday evening (7.45 for 8-9pm), to discover from God’s Word how to be a follower of Jesus Christ.
As we cannot enjoy knowing Jesus Christ, or even follow Jesus Christ, without feeding on God’s Word (the Bible), we encourage those who are seeking Christ to hear, read, study and think about and share what God’s Word says. We distribute Bible notes (Called Pilgrim Bible Notes) freely to anyone who wants help to do this.
Wixams is a new town that began in 2008. It will be formed of several villages. Village one is complete. Village two and village four are in the process of development. It is an exciting new community!
