These monthly meetings take place on the first Wednesday of every month.

"I, Daniel Blake": film and discussion
2.30pm, Sunday April 9 (Palm Sunday), in Wetherby Methodist Church
We have organised a showing of this award-winning and thought-provoking film by Ken Loach, which tells the story of two people caught up in the compexities of our welfare system.
After the film, refreshments will be served, followed by discussions on the issues raised. Entrance is free, but donations to Church Action on Poverty would be welcome.
Please note that this film is rated 15, meaning that it is not suitable for anyone aged 14 and under. It also contains strong language.
Although this film may - and possible should - disturb us, we must not shy away from issues it raises about fairness in our society.

Good Friday Walk of Witness
10.45 for 11am, Outside Council Offices
This is our traditional walk of witness for Good Friday, and we hope as many people as possible will join in.
Starting at the Council Offices behind St Joseph's Church, we will begin with prayers and meditation on the events of Good Friday, then proceed to the Town Hall steps and then on to Bridgefoot, stopping at each point with more Bible readings, prayers and hymns. The event should finish at around 12 noon.
We will need stewards to ensure the safety of walkers and the general public. Please call Chris Bishop on 01937 520424 if you can help.
A simple soup and bread lunch will be available afterwards at the Methodist Church, Bank Street.
