Commemorative Service for the
11am, Friday July 1 at St James' Church, Wetherby
The British Legion in Wetherby are organising this service to remember those who died during this significant battle, which took place 100 years ago. It was the largest battle of World War I on the Western Front; more than one million men were wounded or killed, making it one of the bloodiest battles in human history.
Everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served after the service.

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.

In2Out - supporting young offenders
At our AGM last month, we heard about In2Out, a charity based on the YOI in Wetherby, which 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.
