Wexford Christian Community Church

Welcome

Wexford Christian Community Church is a church that is committed to following the Lord Jesus Christ and His teachings. The Church started out as a fellowship in 1990 and after moving to various locations we finally settled in our new church building in June 2009.

WCCC has a strong commitment to its members and the community, and we believe in Christian values for our families. The leadership of WCCC strongly believe in accountability as a scriptural principle and as such, we are a member of the Assemblies of God Ireland (AGI) churches. This consequently means that we are accountable to the National Council of the AGI. The AGI currently has more than thirty churches registered as members in Ireland and this provides us with relationship support with similar churches.

WCCC endeavours to reach out to the community to build relationships. We believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is an essential message to be shared with the community. We also place great importance on our family type relationships with each other in the church and to be there for one another in times of difficulty. We are a church of different languages and cultures and we are blessed by the diversity of people who attend and also contribute to serving one another.

About Wexford

Wexford, the main town of Co. Wexford, was established by Viking settlers in AD 850. It was an important port for Norse raiding parties into the surrounding counties of Wicklow, Carlow, Kilkenny and Waterford and soon became a key maritime port. This logistic pattern was followed centuries later by the Norman invaders of Strongbow in 1169 and today Rosslare Harbour in County Wexford is one of the main entry points to Ireland with ferry crossings from mainland Europe and the UK.

Outside of the town, Wexford is a county of low lying fertile land and scenic sandy coasts stretching from Courtown in the north of the county, to Kilmore Quay in the south and right around the timelessly scenic Hook Peninsula. On the tip of the peninsula is Hook lighthouse the oldest in Europe.

Throughout its history Wexford stood as a rebellious county to outside authority. During the Cromwellian Wars, Wexford town was laid siege by English troops. Fresh from massacring the population of Drogheda, they overcame the town and put some 1,500 of the town's inhabitants to the sword. County Wexford again was the scene of an Irish massacre during the rebellion of 1798, at Vinegar Hill close to Enniscorthy.

Famous names connected to Wexford include John F. Kennedy whose greatgrandfather emigrated from here. There is a memorial centre to JFK, and the Kennedy Homestead which outlines the Kennedy heritage, is still farmed by relatives of the late president.
