Ironman Event

The Ironman event is taking place on Sunday 22nd September this year.  Although the church area seems relatively free, the roads from Preston into town are all impassable at the times needed to attend WBC.  Therefore, some are meeting for worship at June & Derek Stephens’s home at 3 Glenburn Court, 42 Preston Road, DT3 6PZ at 10:00 am.  Although it mainly affects Preston area home group folk, anyone who can reach us is welcome to join us.

OAM Beach Mission

During the summer holidays, WBC was host to the OAM Beach Mission. They have sent us an insight of the time they spent here in Weymouth, a copy can be found on the WBC notice board in the corridor.

The Weyfinders team are meeting to plan their new programme on Monday 16th September 10.30 am at 3, Glenburn Court, 42, Preston Road, Weymouth, DT3 6PZ. There is limited parking but you can park in Melstock Avenue opposite. 
The Weyfinders Walks programme for the remainder of 2019 and into 2020 has been prepared and will shortly be available and we look forward to seeing you. Weyfinders started in 1997, and we always look forward to 
seeing new people joining us, we have a varied programme to suit everyone, and are always looking for ideas and suggestions to keep us up to date and interesting both in the winter and summer months. 
Weyfinders open their homes for regular Coffee Mornings each month, and we are taking a holiday together in Sidmouth at the end of October, we have so enjoyed it in previous years. We have a Celebration meal in 
December in a local restaurant, which is always enjoyed, last year we brightened a winter day wearing festive jumpers.  We are blessed with enthusiasm, concern for each other, and to help those less fortunate 
than ourselves both at home and abroad. Our new programme will be available soon copies of which will be at the hub.

Marina Moyses

As many of you will know our PAIS worker, Marina Moyses, has now moved on and will be working for PAIS in Burnley from September. She will be working as a volunteer with no income and so if anyone wants to support her financially please set up a Standing Order to her bank account (Sort Code 236972, Acc No 05741925). She will be very grateful for any gifts she receives. During her time in Weymouth all support from her home church in Brazil stopped and she now views WBC as her home church! It would be wonderful if we could meet her every need both prayerfully and financially. 

Someone kindly loaned Marina a laptop, if anyone knows who it belonged to then please contact Anne Callaby.

Spring Harvest

If anyone is planning to go to Spring Harvest (week 1 or 2), please contact Mary Dimbleby.

Vacancies at WBC

  • We are seeking to find more help for the crèche at WBC. Please speak to Julia Mockett if you are interested.
  • Could you offer to help set up and clear away when we have a morning Communion Service? If you would be interested in volunteering to go on the rota (approx. 3 to 4 times a year), then please contact Sue in the Church Office.
