Welcome to our church...
We 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.
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.
The Church Calendar shows church, fellowship and leadership team meetings, plus plenty of other events, so have a browse and update your diaries!
Bible text for August
Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. (RSV)
Or, as The Message puts it:
Oh! Teach us to live well! Teach us to live wisely and well!
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.
