Churches Together Community Prayers
9.15am, Wednesday, September 5 in the Quiet Room at Wetherby Methodist Church, Bank Street
These monthly meetings 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.

In2Out - supporting young offenders
In2Out, a charity based on the YOI in Wetherby, stands alongside young people, helping them straighten out their often chaotic lives and avoid reoffending.
Many of these youngsters have had a disadvantaged start in life: the majority have little or no contact with their fathers, and many suffer from learning and mental health issues.
In2Out, which is a community chaplaincy, helps to find suitable participants accommodation, employment and education and, if appropriate, a church. It supports the young people once they are 'outside' through a network of 30 volunteers spread across the north of England.
One important condition is that participants must acknowledge that they need to change and need help to do so. On average only 20% of In2Out's participants re-offend, which compares favourably to the national re-offending rate of 70%.
Please visit In2Out's web site for more information on how you and your church can support this hugely worthwhile and inspiring charity through prayer, volunteering and giving.
