Welcome to our church...

Join us for "Worship@Home' this Sunday

We are encouraging all our church - and anyone else who would like to participate - to join in an online corporate act of worship at 10:30am each Sunday while the Covid-19 restrictions are in place. The service will be available to view at any time during the week.

This coming Sunday (November 29) is the start of Advent, when we look forward to the birth of the baby Jesus.

David is leading our worship, and Jean will be speaking on 'Hope'. As we can't share an Advent Ring this year, you are invited to light a candle as you begin to follow the service - but do take care!


Wetherby Baptist and 'Margins' bookshop

Margins Bookshop in Church Street is our physical presence in the town of Wetherby, helping us to link to our community and provide a useful point of contact.

Normally plenty of people drop in to see what bargains we have, to have a chat, a sit-down and perhaps a coffee, and also to bring in their no-longer-wanted (pre-loved?) books to swell our collection. Unfortunately, Covid-19 precautions have limited our ability to provide hospitality.

From Thursday, December 3 we will be open Thursday to Saturday,
9:30am—3:00pm, until Christmas Eve.

About us

Deighton Gates School signWe are a small, friendly and active church meeting in a school on the northern edge of Wetherby in West Yorkshire.

Everyone is welcome to join us at any of our services and you will be assured of a warm reception. Our worship combines modern and traditional resources and is varied and informal, but not casual. We are part of Churches Together in Wetherby and regularly work together with other Christians in the town.

We strive to be a Bible-based, Christ-centred community, led by God's Word, guided by the Holy Spirit, and soaked in prayer.

Our mission is to take the good news of Jesus' salvation to where people are and to grow disciples.

We believe that everyone has an important role to play in our fellowship, and we encourage and support each other to develop our gifts in adventurous discipleship as we seek to fulfil God's purpose where we live and work.

Bible verse for November

For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
Jeremiah 29.11-12

As always, it is good to take time to put these words in context by reading the full passage.

You may also want to incorporate the passage into the Prayer of Stillness, which we are encouraging our congregation to use as part of our prayer life.
