Hi there, my name is Gail and I've been coming to Wycliffe since my baby girl was born - 18 years ago!  I loved the welcome that I first got at Wycliffe and the many friends I have grown to love ever since.  I help to run a life group at my house every Tuesday evening, along with Janice.  I love our Sunday morning times of worship and fellowship - it feels great to be a part of a loving community of Christ.

Hi I'm Janice. I came to Wycliffe about 14 years ago after calling in one Sunday morning, on the way back from my church service to see Gail, and feeling so loved that I stayed!! I became a Christian 40 years ago as a teenager. God has always been faithful no matter where I've been in my life. The last 14 years have been a time of change and growth, something that wouldn't have happened without the love and support of this beautiful Christian family here. As Gail said I help lead a Life Group (Tuesdays at 8pm...all welcome!!) I also assemble the weekly newsletter and I've recently been elected as an Elder....which is a bit scary!

Janet Welsby: After my local church, St. Mark's, closed in September, 2014, (our lovely Vicar and his Wife having retired and the C of E had decided he would not be replaced), it felt like a bereavement for all of us.
I began, along with other core members of our congregation, a long nomadic journey to find a new spiritual home.
After attending the relevant local churches in my area to get a feel for the kind of Services being offered, over time I gradually narrowed it down. It has been a very long and mainly fruitful search along the way, as I've gained from each church experience. It has been a very hard choice as each church has been so welcoming.
But it became apparent, after much soul searching, and waiting on the Lord's leading, that Wycliffe would become my new spiritual home. There is a true presence of the love of God here, and of the Living Water required to feed and nourish your spirit. The Pastoral Team and core members are truly Spirit filled Christians and allow the Holy Spirit to move freely. There is a real presence of God in the worship and prayers here and I feel I can now begin to move forward again and enter into the life if this church.
