Christian Aid Week

14-20 May, on a street near you

A huge 'Thank you' to everyone who took part in Christian Aid Week last week, whether organising a coffee morning, the market stall, or collecting envelopes house-to-house.

All the fundraising events went well, and to prove it, here's a photo of the market stall held on Thursday.

We will publish news of how much was raised within the next week or so.

Thy Kingdom Come

Ascension Day to Pentecost (May 25 - June 4) across the world

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer initiative from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. They are inviting churches, families and individuals across the world to join in prayer between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus.

In Wetherby, Churches Together have provided an opportunity for everyone to get involved. On Friday, May 26th, between 10am and 7pm, St Joseph's Church to be open for anyone to come and pray. There will be resources available to help you. You can come on your own, as a family or in a group.

We are hoping that people will drop in to pray for as long as they can - perhaps 15 - 30 minutes, or longer - at a time that best suits them. You may find yourself on your own or be able to share with others - it's all part of the excitement! - and you'll know you are sharing with thousands of others across the world.

For more details and inspiration contact Derek Taylor (918534 or email or visit the Thy Kingdom Come web site.

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.

Please note that these links will be removed on Wednesday May 31.

Our thanks to St James' and Wetherby Methodist Churches for organising these helpful talks.

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: dervaltaylor@talktalk.net.
