Home » WGCP

The Wantage and Grove Church Partnership was formed to promote fellowship and co-operation with each other, and to express a united action in Christian witness, outreach and service to our community.

Although each of our churches organises various different events and celebrations throughout the year, and very often other churches join in, we also organise projects, events and celebrations as a combined effort.

The Leaders and Representatives of the participating churches of Wantage and Grove Church Partnership, meet on a regular basis to discuss matters of local and common concern and interest.
