Welcome to Wick

Wick is the highest point in the Vale of Glamorgan in South Wales.  At the heart of this village is the 12th century church of St James.   The church has a key role in the community as well as being a building of significant architectural and historical interest.  We hope to share some of this with you on this site and offer you a warm welcome when you come in person.

We never forget that Christ's Church is made up of people rather than buildings and we say something about the people on this site.  Even so, this is a rather special building, representing many centuries of Christian worship in Wick.  From an architectural viewpoint, it is listed as Grade II*, meaning that it is a 'particularly important building of more than special interest'.



Keep us, good Lord,

under the shadow of your mercy

in this time of uncertainty and distress.

Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,

and lift up all who are brought low;

that we may rejoice in your comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us from your love

in Christ Jesus our Lord.
