Noah's Ark Days - a good news story from Wilsden Trinity Church



On Thursday 13 June and again on Wednesday 26 June a team of five church members from Wilsden Trinity Church, ably (and bravely) led by Sharon, went in to Wilsden Village Primary School to enjoy a day of games, craft activities, storytelling and a puppet show all linked to the story of The Flood with year 3.

This is the third year of such visits and has proved a highly effective and enjoyable means of communication and contact with the children of our community. The school have been very co-operative and have made our team most welcome - even providing them with lunch. The personal contact has made it possible to build real links with the school and they in turn have been happy to promote other things involving children on our behalf including our Friends & Heroes group.

The first visit three years ago was faced with terror and foreboding but our folk have had so much fun they can't wait for the next one. Many thanks to Sharon for her expertise, energy and enthusiasm and to the Circuit for allowing us to have so much of her time.

Wilsden is a largely ageing congregation and we have been struggling with a good deal of illness and infirmity amongst our membership in recent years. Many of the things we have attempted over the last couple of years have really seemed far beyond our capabilities but God has really blessed us in so many ways and continues to bless us.

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 …
