At St Wilfrid's our main focus is on serving the local community and sharing the love of God through Jesus in both word and action.

Children in Church
St Wilfrid's provides a number of organisations and facilities for children but we also recognise that some parents and children want to stay together for Sunday services. Children are always very welcome in church and we appreciate that some parents might be nervous about bringing children into church for the first time. Please don't be! Please come, we'd love to see you and welcome you to our service. You will usually find other young families at our Family Communion service.
Please come along we really would be very happy to see you!
Baptisms are usually held at 12pm on the second and fourth Sundays of the month.
Please contact the Rector by telephone on 261546 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no charge for Baptism.
At St Wifrid's, we have a strong tradition of bell-ringing. Our bellringers are very accomplished and successful in competitions. Bell ringing practice is on Wednesday evenings, and the group calls us to worship at our regular services.
St Wilfrid's also has a strong tradition of church music. Our choir leads us in the Family Communion and other services as well as singing in Chester Cathedral. Choir practice is on Friday evenings.
In addition to meeting for worship, St Wilfrid's has numerous organisations catering for all age groups within the parish. Younger people are welcome to attend our weekly Children's Worship Group. The organisations also include the Women's Group and the Men's Group all of which meet regularly in the Parish Centre opposite the church. We also have a Pre-School Praise Group which meets twice each month. Uniformed organisations include Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts and Scouts, together with two groups of Rainbow Guides, two groups of Brownie Guides.
Live at St Wilfrid's
One of the best known organisations associated with St Wilfrid's Church is "Live at St Wilfrid's". This is a programme of classical musical concerts held at regular intervals. By use of a stage and reorganisation of the seating, the nave is transformed into an unusual but very effective and atmospheric concert venue which attracts top artists. Please click on the following link to access the Live at St Wilfrid's website.
