We have so enjoyed our visits to the Elizabeth, which is in an ideal location with an outstanding position on the Seafront close to Sidmouth town centre. Many of the en-suite bedrooms have unrivalled views across Lyme Bay. Delicious meals are served using fresh local produce.

You are very welcome to come with us so why not join us for an Autumn seaside escape? Brochures are available on the Hub, or further details from June Stephens.


On the Hub

A copy of the January Mission News can be found on the ‘Hub’ desk. Please help yourself to a copy. Named copies are in the letter rack.

Fundraising for Girls’ Brigade

We need your help! If you shop online, please could you sign up to easyfundraising to support 1st Weymouth Girls’ Brigade? 

It’s a really easy way to raise money for us – you just use the easyfundraising site to shop online with more than 3,300 well known online stores like Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS,, eBay, Boden, and M&S and when you make a purchase, the retailer sends us a free donation, at no extra cost to you. You can get your groceries, train tickets, or book holidays and much more. You can also get a “donation reminder” ribbon for your computer, tablet, phone in case you forget to click in correctly on subsequent occasions.

We want to raise as much as possible, which in turn will benefit the girls, so please visit easyfundraising, insert 1st Weymouth Girls’ Brigade as the cause and start shopping.

I received a cheque last week for £23.71 raised in the last three months. £302.89 has been raised in total over the last few years but we could use much more! It won’t cost you a penny, so please think about it.

Thank you, Pauline Hardisty.


Paul & Judith Lavender

For anyone who remembers Paul and Judith Lavender, there is a Christmas letter from them on the WBC notice board in the corridor.


WBC Letter Racks

These are in the Welcome Area and are for everyone to use (not just WBC members).

If you have been/are connected to GB either as staff/girl/helper, please check the letter rack as there maybe something for you.


Dates of Church Members’ Meetings for 2019

These will all be Tuesdays at 7.30pm – 30th April, 16th July and 22nd October.


WBC Weekly Offertory Envelopes


Envelopes for BMS and HM

If anyone would like a set of envelopes for 2019 to support our Baptist Missionary Society and Home Mission serving our Churches at home, please speak to Rosemary Croft.


Help Required

Then you could be just the sort of cool dude or dudess we need to help us storm through the current desperate shortage of AV operators for Sunday morning worship. So (please) pop up to the balcony now (if not sooner) and speak to Murray, Jamie or Rob. Awesome! Thank you and God bless, Murray.


Helper Required for Kids on the Wey

We need another helper to help run the crèche on a once a month basis. You will need to be a member of the church and love playing with little kids and babies. If you would like to help then please phone Julia Mockett.


Church Flowers

Many thanks to all who provide the flowers for the church week by week. Please remember that YOU are responsible for giving them out at the end of the service. If that is not possible, please contact Jan McKie. It is such a pity for them to be wasted when someone who is ill, shut in or just needs cheering up could be enjoying them.


BMS Birthday Scheme

When you celebrate another year of life, would you consider making a donation to BMS World Mission? Your donation will be used to promote the work of doctors, dentists, etc. and also includes work towards disease prevention and positive health. On your birthday, you will be given a card and an envelope in which to put any donation. For more information, please contact Liz LeQuesne or Rosemary Croft. Thank you.


Stamps for Mission

There is a container on the ‘Hub’ desk for any used postage stamps.

Please take care when removing the stamps from envelopes. Kindly leave a gap around the outside to ensure that the perforations are not damaged. Thank you.
