This Sunday, March 24

10.30am at Deighton Gates School

This Sunday we will be discussing the book "Have no fear", which was distributed last month. We'll be looking at how we do witnessing, and Chris will lead us in this. David will be leading our worship, and our reading is Acts 16:6-15.

In order to prepare for the discussion, you might want to consider these questions:

  • What did you like about the book?
  • What challenged you?
  • How could we put the ideas into practice?

Do come along and make a contribution; everyone is warmly welcome.


Lent Lectures: "Faith in Film"

7.30pm, Mondays 18 & 25 March at Wetherby Methodist Church

Organised jointly by Wetherby Methodist Church and St James' Church, this year's talks will be given by Revd Stephen Brown.

Stephen Brown is an Anglican priest who is also is a teacher, journalist and broadcaster specialising in film studies as a means of understanding ourselves, and our faith, more deeply. Stephen is also Church Times Film Correspondent.

The lectures will explore what divides us as people and what unites us, through movies like Notting Hill and The King’s Speech.

Everyone is welcome, from any church or none. Refreshments will be served.

Easter Egg Giveaway

Easter Saturday, April 20, from 10am at Margins

Once again we will be 'blessing' the good folk of Wetherby by giving away mini chocolate Easter Eggs, labelled with an appropriate Bible verse. This has been very well received in the past, and we have over 800 eggs to give away!

Obviously we need help on the day to ply people with the goodies, but we also need help to stick the text labels on to the eggs. If you can help in any way, please let Pat or Chris know.

The raw materials (egg + text) will be available shortly.

Riding Lights: The Narrow Road

This presentation combines drama and worship as we follow the extraordinary journey of Jesus through a world of miracles and madness, violence and liberation. We walk the path to the cross and follow the participants into the challenge of life beyond the crucifixion, prompting us to reconsider our own faith.
