Welcome to our church...
We are a small, friendly and active church meeting in a school on the northern edge of Wetherby in West Yorkshire.
Our minister (part-time) is Rev Dr Sally Nelson, Ph.D, MA, and she can be contacted here.
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.
We strive to be a Bible-based, Christ-centred community, led by God's Word, guided by the Holy Spirit, and soaked in prayer.
Our mission is to take the good news of Jesus' salvation to where people are and to grow disciples.
We believe that everyone has an important role to play in our fellowship, and we encourage and support each other to develop our gifts in adventurous discipleship as we seek to fulfil God's purpose where we live and work.
Wetherby Baptist goes to town...
We now have a presence right in the heart of town - a Pop-Up Church!
Our new base (for the next three months at least) is at 2 Church Street in Wetherby and are currently in the process of making warm, welcoming and suitable for our activities. At present there are lots of ideas about how we will use it to support and serve our community. We aren't able to staff it six days a week, but hopefully we will have people there several days/evenings.
We will not be using it for Sunday worship: that will still happen at Deighton Gates School as usual.
We shall be holding a short dedication service for the premises on Sunday, December 8, at about 11.30am.

Bible text for month
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. " (2 Corinthians 12:9)
We suggest you memorise the sentence above and pray through it regularly this month. You may want to incorporate it into the Prayer of Stillness, which we are encouraging our congregation to use as part of our prayer life.
