We value community. We believe church is people living life together and helping one another to love God, to love each other and love others.

We’ve groups to give us time to gather as friends, and times to encourage and equip each other.

Tiny Little Me

Tiny Little Me’ is a baby and toddler group for children aged 0-4 years, which meets on a Wednesday between between 09:45 – 11:15.

The group is run by members of The Welcome Church in Witney and their aim is to provide a time for free-play, stories, singing, dancing, craft and sensory activities for the older children, as well as a time to chat and reconnect with other parents and carers, whilst you watch your little ones play safely.

Kids Church (3 to 10 yrs)

Living Life to the full!

Pre-schoolers to school year 6 – or three to eleven year olds – are very much part of the Welcome church family. The church meets at 10:30am on a Sunday morning and as part of that service there is specific teaching in age appropriate groups.

The children hear Bible stories and explore Biblical truths as we believe these are foundational to living life to the full. The children are divided into age groups and enjoy various craft activities that help them remember what they have learned.

Youth group

Welcome has a very active youth work for school years 7-13.

Energetic outdoor activities, weekends away, attending Christian festivals or getting involved with other organisations are all ways for us to do life together and make lasting friendships.

On Sunday mornings we find fun, creative and relevant ways to explore the Bible with InSight for school years 7-9 and FOCUS for years 10 & 11.

‘Where my faith and my life meet my culture’ is our challenging title for the FUSION group for years 11-13 who meet at 6pm on alternate Sundays.
