Creche at WBC for children of pre-school age

We are now able to offer staffed creche facilities during Sunday morning worship at WBC. All children’s workers are DBS cleared. Parents and carers can attend worship, and because of the layout of the building, can still see your children playing through the glass doors which divide the creche area from where the worship service takes place!

Community Lunch

Wakefield Baptist Church provides a free community lunch approximately once a month. These are highlighted on the church notice sheet in the foyer, but also a sign will be posted on the main entrance door during the week leading up to the next lunch. Everyone is welcome.

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
  • Work with the crèche children (subject to DBS check)
  • 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 see Flo.

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.
