Tour de Yorkshire
9am - 5pm, Saturday, April 29th, Market Place
The Tour de Yorkshire comes through Wetherby TWICE this year. The Women's Race comes through at around 9.30am, and the Men's at around 2.20pm. The Welcome to Wetherby Group have organised a day of celebration at and around the Town Hall, with big screen, stalls, entertainment and other wild attractions.
There will be a Community Showcase in the Town Hall, where local clubs and community groups will be able to show what they offer, with leaflets, posters and so on. Churches Together have booked a slot, and now we are looking for plenty of information to display during the day. This can be about church activities, charities the churches support - anything really.
We are also invited to provide people to be on hand to answer questions. If you can manage to find a spare hour or two to do this, please contact Mary Wilkinson on 520071, or e-mail her.
Christian Aid Week
14-20 May, on a street near you
This has been described as the largest act of Christian witness in the UK, and you will, of course, want to be part of it!
As usual there will be two Coffee Mornings at either end of the week, and a Market Stall on the Thursday, not to mention the house-to-house collection.
Each church has their own Christian Aid representative this year, and they will be in touch soon to encourage you to cover your usual roads, or perhaps have a go for the first time.
In previous years our combined efforts across Wetherby have raised around five to six thousand pounds, so we need people to help us repeat that terrific result. It only takes a couple of hours - and a little bit of courage - to do the average collection, so make your representative's day and volunteer before you're asked!
Lent Talks 2017
This year's Lent Talks, which explored Christian faith in relation to important contemporary issues, have now taken place. However, the talks are currently being broadcast on Tempo FM (107.4 MHz). If you miss the broadcasts, all is not lost, because you can listen to recordings of the three talks and subsequent question times by clicking on the links below. We are very grateful to Tempo FM for working in partnership with us on this.
Our thanks to St James' and Wetherby Methodist Churches for organising these helpful talks.
Churches Together Prayer Group
9.15am, Wednesday, May 3 in the Quiet Room at Wetherby Methodist Church, Bank Street
These monthly meetings take place on the first Wednesday of every month.
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.
3pm, Sunday May 14 in St James Church
Everyone is welcome to join in this service, organised by our Mayor, Norma Harrington, to celebrate and pray for our town, its councillors and all those who contribute to the life of the community.
Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
Unfortunately this event, which was to have taken place in November, has had to be cancelled: insufficient people indicated their interest in going.
It is still hoped to arrange a pilgrimage for 2018. If you are interested in joining this, please contact Derek as soon as possible on 01937 918534 or email him: email@example.com.
