Sunday, November 17

10:30am at Deighton Gates School

We welcome back Revd Dr John Billingham, who was the minister at Acomb Baptist Church, as our guest speaker this week. We are looking forward to his ministry. David will be leading our time together.

Our services are, as always, open to everyone and you are very welcome to join us.

Prayer Encounter

8.45 (prompt!) - 9.15am, Saturday, November 16 at Margins

Praying together is - or certainly should be - a vital aspect of the life of our church, as we bring our concerns to God and listen for his response and leading.

Do join us if you possibly can. A possible incentive (not that you need one, of course), is that coffee and doughnuts are served afterwards for those who would like them.

Church Members' Meeting

After morning service, Sunday November 17

This is when we gather to discuss the work and witness of the church and hear news of members and friends.

There are a number of important issues to discuss, so please make every effort to be there.

Anyone who attends our church is warmly invited to come along.

Wetherby Christmas Lights Switch On

6 - 8pm, Thursday November 21

We shall have a 'late night' opening for Margins for this event, distributing Christmas biscuits and children's books, as we have done for the past few years.

To do that, we need volunteers to help, so please let Chris or Pat know if you are able to help, even if it's only for a short while - the more, the merrier.

If you need any further incentive, we understand that Bottle & Bean next door will be serving food, so you could get your tea there and support a local trader.

Deighton Gates School Christmas Fair

12 - 2.30pm, Sunday December 1

We will not be having a morning service on this date. Instead, we'll be helping out at the school's Christmas Fair.

We need plenty of help to welcome people at the door and also to help run the "Get in the Picture" attraction. It is always a jolly occasion, so do come along, and let Chris know if you can help - thanks!

Please make a note of the date and time.
