Welcome to our church...

Sunday service

Sunday, October 31, 10:30am, at Deighton Gates School

This Sunday our speaker is Revd Dr Sally Nelson, and David will be leading the service.

Everyone is welcome and we look forward to seeing you there.

We will still be observing some Covid-19 precautions, with some social distancing and wearing face coverings, with singing allowed behind the masks.


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. Covid safety precautions will still apply, of course.

Normally plenty of people drop in to see the books we have to offer, to have a chat, 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, but everything else is still there.

Margins is open on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

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.

Our Vision is to grow as a welcoming community where everyone is equally valued, where Jesus Christ is honoured as Saviour and Lord, and the good news of God’s love and saving grace is proclaimed in word and deed.

We will fulfil this vision through:

  • seeking to do God’s will, led by the Holy Spirit, through committed worship, prayer and Bible study;
  • offering our gifts, time and material possessions for building God’s Kingdom;
  • being a welcoming and supportive community, where everyone is unconditionally loved, accepted as equal, and encouraged in their faith;
  • living as disciples of Jesus at home, at work, and in our community, working in partnership with others.
This is summarised in the phrase: Loving God, serving others.

Bible verse for October

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it
Psalm 24:1

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.
