At Welcome we believe Jesus Christ is relevant for people today. And we believe that people matter hugely to God.

  • We are a community of people committed to following Jesus Christ with our whole lives, committed to supporting each other and those around us in our town and beyond.
  • Church is about people… We aim to give people a good welcome and hope Welcome Church is a place you can come as you are and discover with us the life-transforming power of God.
  • At Welcome Church community means connection and relationship. It happens in weekly services, in smaller gatherings during the week, as we pray, serve and reach out to those around us.

Pastoral Care Team

A team of people at Welcome are entrusted to assist the Elders with the pastoral care of all who attend the church. Our aim is to ensure that everyone receives the highest quality of spiritual, emotional, physical and practical support possible.

We also call on the skills of many other people within the church who are able to provide help in all kinds of practical ways such as baby-sitting, mowing the lawn or sorting out computer problems.

If you need transport to get to hospital or the doctor’s surgery – or maybe someone to get some shopping, we can help.

Above all, we count it a privilege to pray for any situations you wish to share with us. We also have a prayer chain for non-confidential matters so that others in the church can pray for you if you are happy for them to do so.
