Wetherby Methodist Church
Wetherby Methodist Church is currently served by a lay leadership team comprising myself, Heather Shipman, as Lead Lay Pastor; Andrew Marshall as Pastoral Assistant; and Donald Milne as Lay Pastor. Our contact details are on the ‘contact us’ page. I work full time and Andrew and Donald are part time, so please contact me initially. We are all long serving Local Preachers and working together as a ministerial team until the appointment of a Superintendent for the Circuit who will also join the team at Wetherby. We will then have a leadership team of both lay and ordained.
Wetherby is a vibrant church with over 180 members serving our market town. We have strong relationships with our fellow denominations in the town and an excellent covenant relationship with St James’ Anglican Church. In 2017 we joined together for a visit to Nepal and are planning a return visit in the autumn of 2020 under the auspices of Tearfund. Our premises are used by many groups for lettings and the church has a strong social responsibility agenda.
Over the coming year it is our intention to move forward, both as a church and as individuals, in two main areas; the first being to deepen our spirituality through additional small groups within the church, and the second to explore how we can become more environmentally friendly in church, at home or in our community.
If you are visiting the area or have just moved to Wetherby please call in and see us or make contact via email or the phone. We look forward to meeting you.
With every blessing
