Welcome to our worship in wootton bridge!
In these challenging times, we in the Parish of St Edmund with St Mark are praying for all who in our world, in our country, on our Island and in our village whose lives are disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, and particularly for those who are ill and for those who have died. On this page, we have left in place reminders of happier and more normal times, because the Church is there for everyone in good times and in bad.
“Sadly, our church buildings have been closed for the time being. The Archbishops have directed this as it is our ‘Christian duty to minimize the risk of infection’ to friends and neighbours. We will miss our places of worship. But these will be re-opened when the government tells us it is safe to do so. And, although we are not together in the same building, we are united in prayer and are offering pastoral support to one another.
Church is a community of people. Please let us know about changes in your circumstances so that we can support you.
Finally, through this difficult time, please know that God is with us, now and always.
With love and prayers in Christ.
Veronica (Priest in Charge)”

The church building is now a warm & bright space, with wifi available for hirers and users of the premises. There’s much more work to do to provide access to all areas … upgrading the lounge and kitchen area AND providing a purpose-built, step-free entrance to the church building
We recently received a grant from The WightAid Foundation towards the next phase of work.
Our thanks go to EVERYONE – volunteers & donors – but especially to Stephen Capps, who has worked tirelessly. You have all made this truly amazing transformation possible!
