Weekly Prayer Focus: Wymondham Baptist Church

Week 41

Wymondham is a market town to the south-west of Norwich and is presently led by its Minister, Paul Smith.  There has been a Baptist Church in Wymondham for around 400 years but this small church has been led to take a very contemporary approach to engage its local community, particularly through the vision the Lord give them to establish the Roots Community Cafe.   The EBA and Home Mission recently produced a video on how vision turned into reality in order to help inspire others to discover the vision the Lord has for their church and to be prepared to be both creative and courageous as they are led by him.

There is a short trailer to introduce Wymondham Baptist Church https://youtu.be/fq9YvqMikJU and an eleven minute feature video.   https://youtu.be/gmO86FKifA8.   The continuing work of Roots Community Cafe and the ministry of Wymondham Baptist Church is supported by Home Mission and there is a page on the Baptists Together website with more information and group study notes to help stimulate prayer and discussion as to the vision God has for our own churches.  https://www.baptist.org.uk/Articles/631926/Creativity_and_Courage.aspx

Paul Smith Writes:

“Following on from the launch of our vision we are excited to see God continuing to build us as his people for the community around us. In recent months we have seen exponential growth with our membership expanding and the attendance to our Sunday morning service increasing in number on a near weekly basis.

Our community cafe, Roots, is well supported and is a fantastic outreach for us and we have recently re-established our Cafe church sessions that we host at six week intervals instead of a more traditional morning service after we paused them due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

Going forward we are excited to see new plans we have for our physical buildings to bring us to a better place to carry out our vision and ministries. We are seeking funding opportunities in order to be able to go forward. This will present a huge challenge to us but we believe it is the direction God is leading us in.“

Prayer points

  • We, like so many other smaller churches struggle with our volunteer base as we seem to pull from the same small numbers every week.
  • We would like to see some younger people join us who would have the time to help take us forward.
  • Our prayers are that we stay in step with God and that we don’t go off on our own path, especially with regards to the building project.
  • We continue to see growth and have wisdom in discipling those who choose to join us.
