Church Life - Not just for Sundays!

About usMost people associate church life which church services on a Sunday.  We do of course have Sunday services which is a very important part of our church life but there are lots of other things too which happen weekly and "now and again" which all go towards making the church what it is.

These are some of the things which happen at WBC

Sunday Meetings

Sunday morning family service is at 10:30am at Somervale School. If you miss the teaching on a Sunday morning you can Listen Again by signing up to our Podcast or just listen to it on-line. Our Sunday evening service at 6:00pm is held at Welton Chapel, with the exception of the first Sunday of each month starting at 7:00pm, and is more informal than the morning service. You will find a warm welcome at either of these services.


Housegroups provide a great way to meet and get to know a smaller group of people, fellowshipping and learning together.  They meet in many different locations in the area during the week. See the Housegroup page for more details

Powerhouse of Prayer

Praying together is an important aspect of the life of WBC.  Instead of meeting in our housegroups, on the first Tuesday in the month we all meet together to pray at Welton Chapel at 8.00pm


The children's and young people's work is co-ordinated by Judith Parr and there are groups for all ages meeting both on Sunday mornings and weekday evenings. More details on the eNeRGy pages.

Alpha Course

An Alpha courses runs each year. Alpha is an opportunity for anyone who wants to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed setting over ten thought-provoking weekly sessions. The Alpha page will give you more details.


Arise! is a women's ministry with a particular desire to nurture and encourage women on their journey with God and deepen their relationship and understanding of Him. It is an opportunity for women to join together to talk, share experiences and challenges, as well as to grow spiritually in a loving and caring environment.


Sunbeams playgroup (previously called Playtots) is for pre-schoolers and their carers. It runs at The Old Town Hall Midsomer Norton on Tuesday,  and Thursday mornings at 9.30am-11.00am.


N'Fest  is a holiday club run by WBC for children in the 4-11 age group.  It is a 5 day long event held at the end of August at one of the local seconday schools in the school hall.  The club runs from 10am-12pm and admission is free but places are limited to around 200 so early booking is always advised.
