We have inaugurated the self-guided walking tour introducing guests and friends to the history and significance of Old Wye Church. You will notice there are 12 stops, each with an online descriptive recording. Many thanks to Jim and Mary Campbell for making this tour possible.

The Offering Plate
We thank you for your support of Wye Parish.  Your ushers will leave the plate near the back of the church so that you may leave an offering as you enter or depart.
Or, you may always take advantage of our online giving. Simply click on the plate to make an online offering for Wye Parish. This online giving feature also may be accessed any time from the Wye Parish website. Thank you to all who have mailed their weekly or monthly offerings and to those who are already using our online donation service.

This little light of mine,
I’m going to let it shine.
Many thanks to Tommy Radcliffe for using his time and energy to clean the lamps at Old Wye Church. The campus is much brighter thanks to his efforts. The before and after images tell the story.
