This Sunday, May 20

10.30am at Deighton Gates School

This Pentecost Sunday service will led by David, and we shall be welcoming a speaker from In2Out, the local charity which works with young people at the YOI in Wetherby.

As always, everyone is warmly invited to join us.

Prayer Encounter

8.45 (prompt!) - 9.15am, Saturday, May 26 at Margins

Praying together is - or certainly should be - and important 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.

Christian Aid Week 2018

May 13 - 19, in streets and churches near you!

Many thanks to all who have delivered and collected envelopes, and those who have made donations.

There is still a chance to spend your money at the Coffee Morning and plant stall at St James Church Centre tomorrow morning, Saturday May 19 from 9.30am - 12 noon.

Church Members Annual General Meeting

After the morning service, Sunday, June 3
(This is a change from the previously published date.)

This meeting will take place after our morning service, and is open to all church members and friends, so please make a note and join us to consider the work and mission of the church.

As this is our AGM, we shall be appointing our Secretary and Treasurer. If you wish to nominate anyone for these positions, or would like to volunteer for one of the posts, please let David know. If you would like to know more about becoming a trustee (deacon) ask any member of the leadership team and fill us with joy and gladness.

Deighton Gates School Summer Fair

3 - 6pm, Saturday, Jun 16

We've been asked to fulfil our traditional role of manning the doors and selling raffle tickets.

If you can help with this, please let Chris know as soon as possible. It's always good fun, and you'll get a chance to wander round the Fair before/afterwards in the glorious sunshine, hopefully.

Thanks very much!
