It's good to be together, in church, with like-minded people, friends or family.  There is warmth, support, understanding and care.

You might like to count how many times the Risen Christ appeared to his followers whilst they were together.

They huddled together behind locked doors for security reasons:  their situation made less frightening among friends.  Fear may well have paralysed them, as it does us.

Into the locked up fear Jesus came with a breath of peace.  'Peache with you' he whispered.  Into the anxiety, confusion, and dread:  peace.

Not a sleepy, easy peace! 'As the Father sent me - so I send you'
Together, that unlikely group of blievers were given a job to do:  just as Jesus was!
Being together at Penetcost, peace became power:  to proclaim and to live the good news.  The beliveres were 'so together' that they shared everything they had.

Sharing everything is more than meeting physical needs; testifying to resurrection life is about sharing life in all its fullness.  That was the job God gave Jesus and that he has passed on to us!

So I wonder what it means for us, as individual Christians within our own church community and as churches within Bradford North Circuit at the present time.  With the particular issues that face us, we need to share everything we have so that together we might spread the good news of God's saving love.

Pancakes and Poems at Thornton

Pancakes and Poems, what a great evening we had on 13th February (Shrove Tuesday), in aid of 2nd Mile Project.

People were invited to come along for tea/supper and enjoy a variety of pancakes both savoury and sweet.

The selection was most tempting with fillings such as chilli. chicken and avocado, mushroom or cheese and onion. The sweet fillings were too many to mention, but my favourite was fresh fruits with ice cream – yum, yum.

Throughout the evening, many people had brought poems to read to everyone. The genre of this was amazing with funny, romantic, knowledgeable and even a little bit naughty.

It was good to be together with laughter and smiles all round. A special thank you to everyone who came and all who helped.

Methodist Women in Britain

Ladies of the Bradford North Circuit, welcome to an introduction to MWiB!

Methodist Women in Britain is a movement within the Methodist Church, which seeks to resource individual women and women's groups in a variety of ways. It came into being in July 2011, formed through the coming together of Women's Network and other women's meetings within Methodism.

MWiB is more than a meeting. Many women may feel that it is not for them, because they do not already attend a women's meeting. The movement is there for ALL women in Methodism. There are opportunities for meetings within circuits, and at District and Connexional levels, which are all held on a regular basis.

MWiB seeks to offer a broader menu for women today. There are many opportunities to meet locally, nationally and internationally. Resources are available for individuals to use at home, at work or within their families.

MWiB is very active nationally; details of events can be found in the Methodist Recorder …
