This week’s notices…

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 be trained on using the PA system to help our sound run smoothly for preaching and music.  We also have a gap on the tea/coffee rota and it would be great to have another regular person to help with breakfast.

We are always looking for additional people also to join our teams:-

Gardening, Sunday School, Youth Work, Door steward, Projection system.

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 ‘Prayer Room’ is open for anyone to use when the Centre Manager is at work, which is generally Monday to Thursday 9.30am to 3.00pm.

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.
Future dates are:-

  • 19th May 2019 (Annual General Meeting) – papers will be sent via e-mail to those on our weekly email listing
  • 14th July 2019

These may be subject to last minute change in extenuating circumstances.  Check with Kathy Smith, Centre Manager, the week before the meeting.

Covenant Sunday

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 Sunday will be 5th May 2019 and our special guest speaker will be Clive Burnard, Regional Minister for the Yorkshire Baptist Association.

Baptisms at WBC

Adult Baptisms occur periodically following baptism preparation classes, usually 3 times a year.  If you are interested in adult baptism please speak to the Centre Manager who can forward your interest to the appropriate person.

Membership at WBC

Membership at Wakefield Baptist Church is a serious and healthy commitment, as part of your faith life.  Kezia Robinson can offer you advice and information about the next membership classes.
