A Message From God


Risen Christ church is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Many people living in Wyken still remember the slogan ‘Be a brick, buy a brick’ when people were asked to contribute 6d each week to buy a brick, so helping to pay for a new Church in Wyken.

Subsequently Risen Christ Church was consecrated in June 1967 by Bishop Cuthbert Beardsley and has been worshipping and working in the community ever since. Risen Christ Church is a much loved place of worship with both contemporary and traditional services being offered and the list of people who have worshipped here is endless and their witness in the community has been and is very visible.

Over the 50 years we have welcomed many from the community at celebrations such as Weddings and Christenings and we have conducted many services of thanksgiving at times of personal loss. We regularly hold coffee mornings (second Saturday of each month 10.00 – 11.30am) to bring community together for a chat over a bacon batch! Likewise we have seen thousands of people gathering for community activities in the church hall and smaller rooms such as dancers, slimming clubs, youth clubs, allotment meetings, music groups, pension and advice sessions, older people using our day care and lunch club and children and parents/carers using the play groups.

We will be marking the 50 years anniversary in many ways, look out for 50 decorated wooden crosses in front gardens around the area giving out the message that the Church of the Risen Christ is alive and kicking, and working within our community. Pop in and collect a free car/window sticker and help us to advertise our continuing presence in Wyken croft.
