Do you mean Wiccan or a witch? You can absolutely be a Christian witch (depending on your interpretation on Christianity). Being Christian and Wiccan at the same time is a little more difficult. Witchcraft is a practice. Wicca is a religion. Since Christianity is a religion as well it will hard to align the philosophies and practices of both at the same time (some would say it's impossible). If you want to try, you'll probably end up with something that is neither Christianity nor Wicca but hey, we live in a (mostly) free world and you can choose to do whatever you want.

There is a path called Christian Wicca [though many feel it blends as well as cream and bricks] you might consider looking into it.
Thing is, while Wicca can bend, Christianity spells out 'right' and 'wrong' pretty clearly, and magick falls into the 'wrong' category. You also cannot have any other Gods except the Christian God. While he is said to be loving and forgiving, you would be breaking commandment number 1 which are key to the faith.
If I were you, I would do some reflection and soul search. What do you love/hate about Christianity and Wicca, why do they draw you, what do you not agree with. See if you can somehow blend aspects of the two together. You might also consider speaking with your priest/reverend about these questions, explain your view, what appeals to you about both paths, and asks their opinion. Also, talk to your priest/reverend about the things you don't agree with about Christianity, ask their opinion about stuff that doesn't sit well with you, and ask for further explanation about things that don't make sense. They should be able to take the time to explain things [instead of condemning your view] then take their words and reflect on all the information.
Okay well I suggest that you do soul searching like all the above posts said. Depending on what you find attractive on Wicca, take those ideas and see why you like them.
For me I was Christian, then I was Wiccan and back and forth. I still feel like Christianty is a good path for me, and it suites me in the moment. However I agree with the harm none and reed, in What cca and how again in heathery family is really important. Basically moulding yourself into a better person spiritually.
Then there's the other hand, where you can maybe worship a deity (lord and lady) but believe that God is the one God the lord and lady depict. You can try Wicca for a bit. See how that goes, then do Christianty. Either or, it's your path.
Both Wicca and Christianity are seperate religions, and while you might not be able to incorporate all aspects of both religions, you can merge them both together. There's nothing wrong with going to church on Sunday, being absolved of sin, praying to different, and sometimes multiple, deities.
