Christmas Services 2012


Below is the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Preaching Plan.

We are appreciative of those Local Preachers and Supernumerary Ministers who have expressed a willingness to take services this Christmas.    We find ourselves in a difficult place with the reduced number of Presbyters, and their help is invaluable.

Could stewards be in touch with preachers in good time, especially if the service has particular characteristics or expectations (e.g lessons & carols, all-age, etc).

We have almost been able to meet the requests of the churches, and we hope that where this has not been possible, they will take the opportunity offered to be ‘@Elsewhere’. @Elsewhere means that when there isn’t a service at your church, you might consider joining another congregation.  In addition to the circuit churches, churches of other denominations may also be pleased to see you!

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.

Church Building at Thackley!

How would a gingerbread church with icing doors and chocolate finger organ pipes appeal? Junior Church at Thackley had been busy building such an edifice for a couple of weeks, before the part-completed church was creatively used as the basis of an inspired service, put together by worship leader, Gill Dobson.

Using the Lectionary readings and carefully chosen hymns, poems and prayers, Gill gave us a timely reminder that our churches are the people, not the building, and that we are all part of God’s Church – all our churches belong to Him – not us!

We considered how the children were building their gingerbread church on the groundwork of the Junior Church leaders and how in a similar way we were building Thackley Church, in the sense that the church is who we are and what we do. We were asked to think how we might describe Thackley - a busy church? A traditional church? An ageing church? A lively church? A tired church? A caring church?
