Mission and Outreach
At Wallingford Presbyterian Church it is our conviction that God calls every person, and the gathered community of faith, to be a tangible blessing in the world. We are committed to cultivating the gifts of our membership for ministry and mission. You are challenged to join us at WPC so that together we may make the shape and content of our common prayers become acts of service in a world of need.
