Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2022 front cover

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity and Churches Together AGM

7:30pm, Thursday, January 20 at St Joseph's Church, Wetherby

Once again, we'll be incorporating the short Churches Together in Wetherby and District AGM with prayers for Christian Unity - two meetings for the price of one! Not only that, but we have a special guest speaker: Mark Screeton, Executive Director of In2Out. In2Out, which is based at Wetherby YOI, supports young people leaving custody, helping them to adjust to the outside world through mentors.
Learn more about In2Out.

The theme of the service is 'We saw his star in the East'.

Please come along: everyone is very welcome!

Alternatively, if you can't get out, you can watch a livestream of the service from 7:30pm; you may find it helpful to download the order of service beforehand, too.

Community Care Volunteers

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) response in the Wetherby Ward

One of the encouraging things about the current Covid-19 pandemic is that many people are volunteering their services to help those who are in need.

It is important that this co-ordinated wisely, both to protect those in need and those that volunteer. Our three ward councillors (Cllrs. Alan Lamb, Norma Harrington and Linda Richards) have drawn attention to the dedicated volunteer network that has been established by Leeds City Council.

Please note that volunteers should be healthy and low risk.

There are two tiers of volunteers:

  • Tier 1: DBS-checked assistance
  • Volunteers who have a current DBS and would be willing to volunteer to carry out non-personal care tasks to assist people with care and support needs. Such tasks might include: shopping, collecting prescriptions, preparing a meal, assistance with laundry, just checking/reassurance by visit or phone call, sitting with someone for a while. This list is not exhaustive. We would support volunteers with training where appropriate and they would be issued with an identification badge.

  • Tier 2: Neighbourly assistance
  • People looking out for their neighbours who may be in some way or another vulnerable but not in receipt of formal care whether self-funded or state supported. This might be about supporting people who choose to self-isolate. It will also include the deployment of volunteer community leaders to support community cohesion related activities.

If you would like to volunteer, please sign up at www.doinggoodleeds.org.uk.
