David Robey, Pastor, Wincanton Community ChurchWelcome to Wincanton Community Church. We are a Pentecostal church in association with the Assemblies of God. The church has existed in Wincanton for around twenty years and presently we have a congregation of around 50.

If you visit us I think you will find a vibrant, friendly, family church and we see ourselves as having a vision to serve the community by giving every man, woman and child the opportunity of understanding the good news of Jesus Christ. This means we aim to provide a place where people can grow in their love of God, their love of life and their love for others.

As part of this vision we run the Second Chance Charity Shop in the town. The charity supports orphans and disadvantaged children overseas. In particular we have been sending money to support work in North Africa.

Corinna Robey, wife of David Robey

I have been Pastor here for three years together with my wife Corinna and we have a daughter Aimee. Originally I graduated in History and trained as a Secondary School teacher. When I felt called to full time ministry I went to Mattersey Hall, the Assemblies of God Bible College. There I did a degree in Biblical Theology ratified by Sheffield University and met Corinna who was following the same course after qualifying and working as a Occupational Therapist. We then spent five years as pastors at Penmaenmawr in North Wales. We then felt called to work as missionaries among the predominantly Muslim people of North Africa and we did this for six years. It certainly was a fascinating and challenging time.

So here we are and we would like to invite you to our worship service on Sunday mornings at 10.30am.

We have a crèche for children 0-4 years and Kingdom Kids for children aged  5-11 years.

Other services and activities include:

Prayer and Praise Sunday 6pm
