Crag Road SOS - can you help?

The members of Crag Road Methodist Church need your help. They have cut down a number of trees at the rear of the church thinking that as the land is unusable they could let them lie; however, they have been informed by Bradford Council that they must be removed. They estimate the cost for the removal of the trees to be over £2,000; however, so far no one will accept the work. They have decided, therefore, to form a team to undertake the task and would be grateful for offers of help. Please email cragroad@bradfordnorth.org.uk for full details.

Secondly, that the current situation is not sustainable in the near future and thirdly, that we need to ground all our work in prayer.

As we begin our work we need to discern where God is leading us in the next five years. What might the Circuit look like then? What kind of staffing shall we need to fulfill God's calling on us as a Circuit of Local Churches? Where will our churches, manses, centres of work need to be?These are just some…

Circuit Talents Challenge

"For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted to them his property. To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more. So also he who had the two talents made two talents more. But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master's money ..." Matthew 25:14-30 Why don't you take up the Circuit Talents Challenge by taking a £5 note and making it grow for the Circuit? More details ...
