Welcome to Watton
Watton is small market town in the rural heart of Norfolk
with some 7000 inhabitants (including some surrounding villages), and it is the
centre of an area known as Wayland. Watton derives its name from the Saxon
Wadetuna, homestead of Wade. In the nearby Wayland Wood, legend has it, the
'Babes in the Wood' were abandoned. The town sign shows the two babes, and the
hare jumping over the barrel reflects the town name: wat being the local
dialect word for hare, and ton for barrel.
Watton Pentecostal Church is part of
Ministries (Norfolk) and is a young church created from two existing
churches that is growing and developing ministries with the aim of blessing the
As a church we believe that we are to express the love of
God to those outside the church in word and deed, while demonstrating the love
of God within the church as the family of God.
At Watton Pentecostal Church we desire to be God's family in
action. We would like to introduce you to our leadership team and to some of
the folk in the church.
Our vision is to see rural communities working together for
the furtherance of the gospel. This means that a small village church working
with others will gain the benefit of itinerant ministries while being a
blessing to other village churches .
Our logo, seen top right-hand corner is unique in that in
shows that the church is part of the assemblies of God and that the cross of
Jesus Christ is central in all that we do
