Our sojourn in North Yorkshire extends...

25-Aug (and possibly 1-Sep) in Kirk Deighton Village Hall

Having de-camped to Kirk Deighton Village Hall for the past five Sundays, our summer 'holiday' is being extended by a further week or two, as work on the school has been delayed.

We hope to be back in the school next week (1-Sep), but keep an eye open for confirmation.

To find Kirk Deighton Village Hall: from Wetherby, continue past the school, and after 200m, take the left fork. After about 300m, turn right at the signpost for the Village Hall (immediately after the Football Club building) and follow the road round. There is plenty of parking.

Welcome to our church...

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.


Our Events page gives details of all that's going on...


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.

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.

We aren't able to staff the seven days a week, but we are normally open Tuesday to Saturdays between 10am and 2pm.

We continue to meet for Sunday worship at Deighton Gates School as usual.

Bible verse for August

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1 (NRSV)

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.
