A simplified website ...
We have simplified our website, removing many of the previous menu links. Rather than spend time searching different tabs, this page summarises what is on offer, with links to various online meetings. It also includes other resources which you may find helpful. It covers Pastoral & Practical Care, Sunday Services, Prayer & Devotions, Regular Activities & Events, and Other Resources.
PASTORAL & PRACTICAL CARE
Pastoral & Practical Care is available for anyone in our community. Our Pastor is available via phone, email, video call, or in person. Whatever you are most comfortable with. As a church we are looking out for one another by small groups keeping in regular contact - we'd be happy to add you to a group if that would help. These remain difficult days, so don't be afraid to ask for help!
We are also here for practical support, such as food or pharmacy collections & deliveries. We also work with Chipping Norton Foodbank, so let us know if you find yourself in need. Or, should you wish to donate you can drop off in our church porch, or arrange for us to come and collect.
Contact us for more details.
We would love you to join us on a Sunday, 10.30am.
Whilst restrictions on meeting together have eased, we are aware of the need for caution. Windows and our entrance are open for increased airflow, hand sanitiser is available, and masks are available for those who want them.
We also have socially distanced seating in our back two rows, and ask that those sitting there wear face masks for their and others protection.
Scattered Sundays (once a month)
Once a month we have a 'Scattered Sunday.' This is a week where we do not meet at Wychwood Baptist for worship, but encourage and give space for everyone to meet at another local Church.
Our next 'Scattered Sunday' is 26th December.
Prayer is a key element of our Sunday gathering, but we also have a monthly prayer meeting.
Our December Prayer meeting will be announced here soon.

Perhaps the last couple of years have got to you personally, or has caused others you know to spend more time thinking about God, who he is, and maybe even where he is in the midst of a pandemic like COVID. Here is one resources which may help.
