Prisons Week Service

Arrive by 6.00pm for 6.30pm start, Thursday October 18, at HMYOI Wetherby, York Road, LS22 5ED

Everyone is welcome to come along to the annual service at the YOI as part of Prisons Week.

The guest speaker is David Lewis, who, for the past ten years has served in various evangelistic ministries, speaking in prisons, schools and churches in the UK and Europe under the banner 'Emerge Ministries'. He is uniquely qualified to speak to those in prison because, up until the time God transformed his life, he had led a life of crime and addiction and time served in jail.

He has been transformed and he has a passion to see others transformed as well!

If you plan to attend the service, please telephone the YOI Chaplaincy on 01937 544325, or email:

Please note photographic I.D. will be required to enter the establishment (passport/drivers licence). Electronic equipment, phones, smoking equipment etc., are not allowed into the establishment.

Development in Nepal

7.30pm, Monday, November 5 at Wetherby Methodist Church, Bank Street

Louise Allen, Manager of the Oxfam Shop in Wetherby, recently visited Nepal to see the work of Oxfam there.

Everyone is invited to come along to hear Louise's experiences and impressions of what she learnt. This will be of particular interest to those involved in the Nepal Project with Tearfund.

Churches Together Prayers for the Community

Wetherby Christmas Lights Switch-on

6 - 8pm, Thursday, November 22

We plan to open Margins during the evening, and it would be good to have a few people to welcome visitors. Our friends at Bottle and Bean (nextdoor to Margins) will be holding a 'food event', they say, so we won't be alone.

Please make a note to drop by.

The Beacon

This is a monthly programme broadcast every fourth Sunday in the month at 8.00am on Tempo FM 107.4, Wetherby's own community radio station. It's presented by Eric Ovenden, and aims to spread the Christian message to everyone in the Wetherby area.
