Jesus’ words “I was in prison and you visited me” should encourage us to pray for those in prison, for their families and especially their children; for the prison staff especially when involved in confrontational issues. For all who serve as volunteers and for the role of the chaplains. We remember too those within the Wetherby Young Offenders’ Institution. 

Pray for People in Templar Gardens Area of Wetherby:  Templar Gardens,  Knights Croft, Law Close,  Priory Close, Eels Mire Garth, Ashfield, Deighton Close, St Benedict’s and Ashfield Nursing Homes, Home Paddock House.

This week Churches in Wetherby prayfor:  St Oswald’s Church, Collingham.

GDPR– In the coming weeks we will be contacting people so that our records are updated in accordance with the new legislation. Please look out for our communication. We do not want anyone to miss out on the good things happening in and around St James’. Brendan/Parish Office 01937 583074 


Welcoming– We try to keep St James’ open to the public each weekday morning during the summer months. Last year, we welcomed over 700 visitors during our ‘open season’, many who were parishioners and other visitors who had made a point of calling at the Church in the hope it would be open. All this is possible due to a number of volunteer ‘Welcomers’ who enable the Church to be accessible to anyone who wished or needed to visit. We would love to continue this service and to possibly extend it. With your help this would be possible. We have a rota of volunteers who give around 2 hours of their time a month. If you would like to consider helping in this valuable service to the Church and the community, please contact me. Thank you. Jill Rose 01937 586640 or email jilly.rose@gmail.com
