Good Friday Walk of Witness
Walkers gathering for the 2016 walk
10:45 for 11am start at Civic Offices, off Westgate
Once again we shall be holding our annual Good Friday Walk to remember the events of Jesus trial, condemnation and crucifixion.
After prayers, readings and songs in the Westgate car park, we will move to the Town Hall, and later down to Bridgefoot, where our worship and meditations will close at around 12 noon.
Everyone is warmly encouraged to join us in fellowship and to demonstrate to the town the significance of Christ's sacrifice on the Cross.
Following the walk, there will be a soup+bread lunch at Wetherby Methodist Church.
We need some stewards to help ensure the safety of the walkers and other members of the public. If you can help, please let Chris Bishop know soon (01937 520424, firstname.lastname@example.org).

Churches Together Community Prayers
9.15am, Wednesday, April 4 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, although that's not obligatory, of course.
