Friday - Sunday, September 30 - October 2, at a church near you
In keeping with the Yorkshire spirit of independence, Wetherby is marking its (National) Prayer Weekend one week later than the official one.
In the week leading up to the weekend, Wetherby people are being invited to ask for prayer for themselves and our community, and these will be offered up to God during the weekend - and beyond.
Please encourage everyone you know to contribute topics for prayer. It might be for an individual, our Town Council, MP, schools, organisations - anything of concern. No prayer request is too small - or too large!
Clothing collection for Syria and Iraq
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Appeal...
We collected a brilliant total of 149 boxes of clothes and footwear, together with almost £300 towards the cost of transporting them to the Middle East.
Our grateful thanks to everyone who donated clothes and money, encouraged others, sorted and packed the boxes, loaded the vans and drove them to Leeds.
It may not seem much in the scale of the plight of the displaced people, but together we will make a difference, and demonstrate that people care enough to take action in God's name. Thank you.
Here's a photo of some of our volunteers along with some of the boxes we filled.
