Now for something really simple ...

Under the guidance of a baker of 52 years experience, John  Anderson,  whose record is 76 000 rolls made in one night, and who has been making bread, on and off, (mostly  off) since 1959, join us in making your own loaf.  After all the jollities, fripperies and trimmings of Christmas, I am inviting anyone in the Circuit  to come and take part in a simple and fulfilling act of worship – making bread.  For the evening worship at Baildon Methodist Church Hall on Sunday 30 December we shall handle and discuss, mix and meditate on, all the ingredients of bread: for example, the oil will come from Palestine, the yeast and salt will remind us of the words of Jesus. We shall make and bake bread; then eat it with some delicious home-made jam. This cannot be done in less than three hours and so the service will start at four o'clock.

When I last took such a service, many people said what a good idea it was and they were very interested in coming. A dark December afternoon should be an ideal time for such a warm Circuit fellowship activity.

I need to have at least ten participants to make opening up the kitchen worthwhile. If ten people or more do not say they will come, I shall lead ordinary evening worship at 1800.

Do join us. I can promise you an enlightening experience.  Let us worship God in a new way.

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?
