Christmas Gift Appeal
From December 1
The Salvation Army's Christmas Present Appeal links generous donors with families who will be struggling to provide what most of us take for granted at Christmas: presents for the children and food for the family.
From December 1, Christmas Trees will be appearing in three locations around the town:
Attached to the trees are gift tags each detailing a gift request suggested by various agencies to meet the specific needs of needy families in the area. People are encouraged to take one (or more!) of the tags, buy the item and bring it (unwrapped, please) to the Gift Service at the Methodist Church at 10am on Sunday, December 8. Alternatively, gifts can be taken to Margins Bookshop (open Tuesday-Saturday, 10am - 2pm) on or before 2pm on Saturday, December 14.
The gifts will then be distributed by the referring agencies to the families, along with gifts of food and other items, in time for Christmas.
Please do all you can to help spread the joy of Christmas where it is most needed. Thank you.

Community Carol Concert
7.30pm, Wednesday, December 18 outside the Town Hall, Wetherby
Organised by the Wetherby business community, this regular feature of the town's Christmas events includes traditional carols accompanied by the Wetherby Silver Band, mince pies and even mulled wine.
Do come along and support this community event.
Carols in Horsefair Centre
10.30am, Christmas Eve, Tuesday, December 24 in the Horsefair Centre
Help us to spread the good news of Christmas by joining in with the carols and readings re-telling the timeless mystery of God's incarnation as a baby in Bethlehem.
This is a Churches Together event, so we want to have lots of church people there to show that the Church is alive and well in the town - and across the world!
Churches Together Community Prayers
9.15am, Wednesday, January 8 in the Quiet Room at Wetherby Methodist Church, Bank Street
These monthly meetings normally take place on the first Wednesday of every month.
This is a great opportunity to meet with other Christians from around the town to pray for our community, and to enjoy a coffee and fellowship afterwards in the coffee lounge, although that's not obligatory, of course.
