I’m New

Choices, choices, choices, going to a church for the first time or going to a new church can be daunting and perhaps confusing for different reasons. Style of worship, music (Hymns or Contemporary, both even), preaching, teaching, size of the congregation, type of building etc. 

The most important thing is that you feel that you are at home in a community of believers and seekers who strive to worship God, and serve Him and others. 

Wherever you are in your journey we want you to feel welcomed, and to belong to a community that is pursuing all that God has in store for His creation. 

In our different church locations you’ll experience friendly people, a mix of worship music from hymns to contemporary and relevant messages. If you want to have an idea of how we worship, what and how we preach and teach visit our YouTube Channel.

What to expect

You will find a warm welcome in our churches. We believe it is a gift that we have been given by God to be warm, welcoming, and hospitable to all who visit us.

We particularly enjoy praise and worship, and we place an emphasis on sound biblical preaching and teaching. Each of our churches is unique in their own setting, but we are united in our commitment to be people called to be set apart to do ministry so that God’s presence is experienced by all who seek Him.

Safeguarding Message

WHC Safeguarding Vision To Provide A: Safe Place, Safe Space and Safe People

Our calling and duties as followers of Christ are to love. Our commitment to love God and to love people is a constant theme throughout the biblical narrative to which each subsequent generation is called to join in. Our love for people especially the vulnerable, needy and oppressed is expressed through the prophets and the psalmists:

Isaiah reminds us to “Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.” (Isaiah 1:17 NLT), and the Psalmist exclaims “Give justice to the poor and the orphan; uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute.” (Psalm 82:3). 

Our commitment to safeguarding those who are at most at risk is motivated by our sincere conviction of loving and caring for people who we believe are made in the image of God. Therefore we must continue to exhibit God’s call in how we love, safeguard and care for those who are vulnerable, in need and marginalised.

The Wesleyan Holiness Church British Isles (WHC) is a member of thirtyoneeight www.thirtyoneeight.org/ . Thirtyoneeight is ‘an independent Christian charity which helps individuals and organisations protect vulnerable people from abuse’.
