Red Wednesday prayer service for persecuted Christians:
Stand up for faith and freedom on November 28!
10am, Wednesday November 28 at St Joseph's Church
Red Wednesday aims to draw attention to all those who suffer for their faith, and to encourage Christians to shine a light on the discrimination and violence faced by millions of Christians and those of other religious minorities around the world today.
As part of Red Wednesday, we are holding a short, ecumenical prayer service at St Joseph's, which is open to all.
In addition, we are inviting everyone to use this prayer at some time during the day:
Our Father in heaven, we pray that you will shine your light in the dark places of despair.
The organisers, Aid to the Church in Need (acnuk.org) and Christian Solidarity Worldwide (csw.org.uk), are encouraging churches and other buildings to be floodlit in red, and for individuals to wear red on the day.

Christmas Day Lunch
12noon to 3pm, Christmas Day at St James Church Centre
Christmas Day can be tough for people who live alone or are struggling to get through a difficult time. This year Churches Together in Wetherby plan to provide lunch and entertainment for guests in a warm and friendly environment on Christmas Day.
Will you be an Angel?
To make it happen we need the support of volunteers from around the churches, both to prepare for the lunch beforehand and on the day itself, including transporting guests and serving the meal. Can you help?
You can also help by printing out the poster (click on the image on the right to download it) and displaying copies, and advertising the sale of tickets (£5) in your neighbourhood. Better still, think who you might invite to go along and let them know about it, or buy two tickets and come with them.
If you can help or want to know more, please get in touch with Nic & Sally Sheppard on 01937 919158 (firstname.lastname@example.org), or drop in at The Curate's Office (next to St James' Church Centre) on Saturday 17 November between 10am and 12noon.
Churches Together Community Prayers
9.15am, Wednesday, December 5 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.
