In2Out - Changing young lives from the inside to the out


September 29 - October 1
at churches across the UK

The National Prayer Weekend is an initiative to encourage people to ask their local churches to pray for them and their communities. In these disturbing times, there should be plenty to pray about!

In Wetherby, prayer request cards will be available in Margins, in most churches, and at coffee mornings and other activities for people to write their requests. Then we shall pray, using the cards, at the Sunday morning service on October 1 and thereafter.

Do encourage everyone you know to complete one or more cards (there are plenty!), and maybe even to attend the service.

Prayer changes things!

GSUS Live! comes to Wetherby High School

7.00pm Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, 3/4 October
