ALL, Together, one year on ... A good news story from Northcliffe LEP

On Sunday 14 July inclusive worship service known as ALL, Together, celebrated its 1st anniversary with a trip to the sea side. With songs, prayer and an action packed telling of Jesus on the beach when he encouraged his friends to "fish from the other side of the boat" (John 21) the congregation found itself encircled by paper chain 153 fine fat fish that literally wrapped itself right around the fellowship. This was a happy coincidence and a blessing that could never have been planned for.

ALL, Together, while still developing continues to bless and be blessed. There has been an Olympic Torch bearer, a baker at the harvest festival, a storm at sea and a picnic on the beach. We have been visited by Rev Roger Walton the district chair. All of our services have a time for activities and a sharing meal.

There is a wonderful mix of people of all abilities and it has become a favourite with some of the Northcliffe families and their friends. Each time we meet we make new friends and welcome back folk we are getting to know each time we gather. This is a circuit and Shipley Christians Together initiative and we welcome new people to help plan and help at the services. Whoever you are and whatever you can offer there is a place for you.

Our next service is a Harvest Celebration on Sunday 13 October 2013.

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 …
