• St James, Parish Church of Wetherby with Linton

    'At the Heart of the Community'
    in the historic market town of Wetherby

    A very warm welcome!

    We are...   

    a lively, friendly church with a variety of services to suit all ages and tastes.
    We seek to follow Jesus Christ, to learn from him and be changed by his transforming presence.

    The Church is complemented by the Church Room (large hall) and the very busy Church Centre
    (former school), where a huge range of clubs, events and activities take place.

    We hope...

    that you will come and join us and see for yourself how everyone is important,
    from our tiniest toddlers to our eldest valued members.

    Do you feel 'Called to Lead'?

    The Young Vocations Champions from the Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales along with colleagues in the Diocese of York have made a short film designed to encourage under 30s to consider ordained ministry. The production team was made up of younger clergy and film-makers in order toappeal to a younger demographic and it showcases the stories ofyounger clergy from across Yorkshire.

    The film is called ‘Called to Lead’ and is available in both a 1 minute trailer
    and a 13 minute short film on YouTube.

    Bishop Nick has also given the film his endorsement and writes:

    “Every Christian has a vocation - that is, a call from God to live and tell the good news of Jesus Christ. This excellent film encourages young people to consider giving their life to ordained ministry in the church, leading others to be disciples and fulfil their vocation. I strongly commend it.” 

    Nick Baines, Bishop of Leeds
