Our name represents a place, a doctrine, a polity and most of all a community! Although our name takes a long time to say, it won’t take you long to feel at home here.
We are a small church with a big heart! WGTCC has worshiped God and served Cape Ann since 1713. Rooted and grounded in God's grace and our long history, we are committed to living our faith and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ, in action as well as word.
If you are searching for a church home where you are welcome and wanted, where questions are encouraged and grace abounds, come visit us. This is a place where we worship God, grow in faith, support one another in times of trouble and times of rejoicing and love to laugh!
