We are looking for individuals with musical giftings in guitar, piano, vocals, percussion, and other instruments to serve on the team.

If you believe that prayer ministry is one of your spiritual giftings, join others at WLA as a team unified in prayer for things happening at our church and for opportunities. Some of the scheduled prayer meetings include: Pre-service prayer (Sunday Mornings 8-8:50AM), Congregational Prayer (1st Sunday of the month 6:00PM), Women's Early Morning Prayer (Tuesdays 6:15AM), Men's Early Morning Prayer (Thursdays 6:30AM).
The Taste of Home ministry aims to pair WLA families with young adults, most of them students, who are living in London, away from their families. This is a practical way to show hospitality and love to a young person in the form of things like a home-cooked meal, a ride to church, friendship and fellowship. If you are a family interested in being paired up with a student, or a student interested in being paired up with a family, fill out the "Start Serving at WLA" form and we will get back to you!
If you are wanting to serve wherever it is needed most, let us know! Sometimes this could look like administrative help for one of our staff, stuffing bulletins, setting up and cleaning up for an event, cooking a meal and much more. Fill out the "Start Serving at WLA" form and we will get back to you about times that you are available.
