Volunteers needed to help with Sunday service duty rotas
Can you help with any of the Sunday service duties? In particular, we need volunteers to operate the projector and sound system at Sunday services. Training will be provided for this.
We also need people to:
- Prepare/serve refreshments
- Greet people on the door
Please speak to Kathy Smith, Centre Manager if you are willing to help on any of these rotas.
Volunteers needed to help Asylum Seekers
Volunteers needed to help with transport for asylum seekers.
Due to policy changes, recent arrivals at Urban House (seeking asylum) are quickly moved elsewhere, but are required to return to Leeds for their initial UKBA assessment, which causes additional stress. If you are able to collect/transport people for these meetings, please speak to Florence Bradley.
Time to talk and pray
On Mondays and Thursdays at 3-4 pm there will be an opportunity to chat or pray in the chapel. This is a time open for anyone. The time is very flexible but on Mondays the emphasis will be on individual conversation and praying with the WBC Daily Prayer, Thursdays will offer a short time of teaching on ‘Starting as a follower of Jesus’.
Community Council Meetings
Any regular visitors are welcome to join us for our Community Council Meetings where we make decisions as a fellowship. The meetings are held in the chapel and form part of our morning worship service. The service commences with prayer, worship and a talk. This is followed by a short coffee/tea/snack break and then our Community Council Meeting starts. We aim to finish these at 1pm.
Agenda and minutes may be available on request from the Centre Manager.
Further dates for 2017 are planned for:-
- 12th November 2017 (a listening meeting)
- 21st January 2018
- 11th March 2018
- 20th May 2018 (Annual General Meeting)
- 15th July 2018 (a listening meeting)
- 16th September 2018
These may be subject to last minute change in extenuating circumstances. Check with Kathy Smith, Centre Manager, the week before the meeting.
Each year we aim to have a Covenant Sunday where we commit ourselves to the worship of God and work of His church at WBC. The next Covenant Service is Sunday 4th March 2018.
