Wetherby Methodist Church

Welcome to Reverend Ann Fox who has joined the Tadcaster Circuit as Superintendent Minister.  She has pastoral charge of several churches one of which is Wetherby Methodist Church.  She will be supported by a strong team of lay leaders including Heather Shipman as Local Pastor and Andrew Marshall as Pastoral Assistant.

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.

Coronavirus, Lockdown and the Current Situation

Normally our premises are used by many groups  but unfortunately during the present crisis our services have been suspended and our lettings cancelled.  We are, however, working hard on a risk assessment to enable us to resume worship on a Sunday in the Chapel and hopefully lettings will return when we are certain that we can offer the safest environment possible.  In the meantime we have not forgotten those who use our buildings, or you, and you are all in our prayers.  If you have a query or there is something which you think we might be able to help with, please get in touch.

There are many resources to enable us to share worship during this difficult  time.  Many of these are available on national websites.  If you would like to link into those which the team are sharing please get in touch and let either Ann or Heather have an email address.   We also have a meditation and circuit service on our Circuit website.  If you would like to join in with these please go to the Tadcaster Methodist Circuit website and log in to Home Worship.  There is a prayer for you below in these often difficult times.

Gracious God
In our going out and coming in,
our rising and sleeping,
watch over us
keep us from  harm.

In summer sun and winter rain
our joyfulness and sorrow
watch over us
keep us from harm.

In the darkness and in lighter days
our fears and comfort,
watch over us,
keep us from harm
This day, and all days.  Amen
