Wetherby, Linton & Collingham
Alpha goes Online
Starts 7.30pm, Wednesday September 30
St James's Church regularly holds Alpha courses but this year - for obvious reasons - it's going online.
Alpha is for anyone, whether you are new to church, or have been part of one for many years - it's a great way to explore the Christian faith and get the answers to your questions: none are too simple or too hostile.
As an introduction, why not watch this 2½ minute video? Then, if you are interested in knowing more or to book a place, please contact Val Lumsden on 01937 584760.
Please do pass this invitation on to anyone you think might be interested.

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:
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.
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.
