Welcome to our church...

About us

Deighton Gates School signWe are a small, friendly and active church meeting in a school on the northern edge of Wetherby in West Yorkshire.

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 Toy Appeal

We are once again running the Wetherby & District Toy Appeal, which aims to provide toys and gifts for children who may not received anything on Christmas morning.

There is lots more information on the Toy Appeal pages. Margins will be the main collection point for donations. Please try to make this appeal known among friends and neighbours.

Wetherby & District Toy Appeal

10am - 2pm, Tuesday-Saturday, Margins Bookshop, Church Street

Surprising as it may seem, there are children in our area who will not, for a variety of reasons, receive any presents at all this Christmas.

The Wetherby & District Toy Appeal gives everyone the opportunity to give a gift and help such children to know that they are not forgotten. It is a joint venture between Wetherby Baptist Church and Wetherby Salvation Army Community Church.

Please do your best to support this appeal. For more information, please see the Toy Appeal pages.

Wetherby Baptist and 'Margins' bookshop

Margins Bookshop in Church Street is our physical presence in the town of Wetherby, helping us to link to our community and provide a useful point of contact.

Plenty of people drop in to see what bargains we have, to have a chat, a sit-down and perhaps a coffee, and also to bring in their no-longer-wanted (pre-loved?) books to swell our collection.

We aren't able to staff the seven days a week, but we are normally open Tuesday to Saturdays between 10am and 2pm.

We continue to meet for Sunday worship at Deighton Gates School as usual.

Bible text for November

Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.  (Psalm 17:8)

We suggest you focus on a different phrase each day this month.
As always, it is good to take time to put these words in context by reading the full passage.

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.
