Welcome to our church...

Christmas at Wetherby Baptist Church

We have a number of services and events over the Christmas period, and everyone is warmly invited to join us. You can find a complete list here.

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 Baptist and 'Margins' bookshop

Following on from our successful 'Pop-Up Church', we have extended our lease on 2 Church Street and are operating it primarily as a second-hand bookshop.

We are seeing plenty of people will dropping in to see what bargains we have, to have a chat, 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 Tuesday to Saturdays between 10am and 2pm.

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

Bible text for month

In Him was  life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.   (John 1:4-5)

We suggest you memorise the sentence above and pray through it regularly this month. Please take time to read verses 1-2 as well, they contain some wonderful words of encouragement.

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.
