Sunday August 7th 2016
Joseph Kwallah, from Wetherby Methodist Church, is planning to run no less than 100 km in one - long - run! As well as the sheer joy of running the distance(!), he's also hoping to raise money for the Wetherby Foodbank and for the Ngong Library. He will be starting and finishing at the church.
You can sponsor Joseph by contacting the church, or downloading his sponsorship form, which also has details of the route he'll be following, should you want to join him...
We wish him well in his endeavour.
Churches Together Prayer Group
9.15am, Wednesday, August 3 in the Upper Room at Wetherby Methodist Church, Bank Street
This is a great opportunity to meet with other Christians from around the town to pray for our community, and to enjoy a coffee and fellowship afterwards in the coffee lounge.
These monthly meetings take place on the first Wednesday of every month.
In2Out - supporting young offenders
In2Out, a charity based on the YOI in Wetherby, stands alongside young people, helping them straighten out their often chaotic lives and avoid reoffending.
Many of these youngsters have had a disadvantaged start in life: the majority have little or no contact with their fathers, and many suffer from learning and mental health issues.
In2Out, which is a community chaplaincy, helps to find suitable participants accommodation, employment and education and, if appropriate, a church. It supports the young people once they are 'outside' through a network of 30 volunteers spread across the north of England.
One important condition is that participants must acknowledge that they need to change and need help to do so. On average only 20% of In2Out's participants re-offend, which compares favourably to the national re-offending rate of 70%.
Please visit In2Out's web site for more information on how you and your church can support this hugely worthwhile and inspiring charity through prayer, volunteering and giving.
