Volunteers needed for Wrose lunch club


Wrose MethodistChurch, Thornacre Road, Wrose, Shipley, BD18 1JY

CAN YOU HELP PLEASE?

We run a Lunch Club at Wrose Methodist Church weekly on every Wednesday.   Due to unforeseen circumstances, after Christmas we urgently need a volunteer to cook the meals in our well-appointed kitchen, with the help of other volunteers.   If you are enthusiastic about cooking and love to feed a good number of people, then this might just be what you’re looking for!

The job entails planning menus for each week, buying the ingredients the day before (quantity dependent upon numbers booking a lunch) and cooking a main course and a dessert on the Wednesday morning.  Numbers attending range between 15 and 22.   Lunch is served between 12 noon and 1 p.m.   We are willing to discuss expenses if a volunteer has to travel any distance.  

We also require volunteers to help in the kitchen, and generally with the setting up of the tables, putting out crockery and cutlery, etc. and serving the meals.

If more than one volunteer were to come forward, for either job, then a rota could be organised so that the commitment would only be fortnightly etc. if weekly is too much.   So please don’t hesitate to let us know if you can offer anything at all!

We would be really grateful if you could help us, as we consider the Lunch Club to be an important service to the elderly in Wrose, offering a friendly atmosphere, good quality food at a reasonable price, interesting people to talk to and various activities throughout the year.

If you can see your way clear to volunteering – if only for once a month! – then please contact us - wrose@bradfordnorth.org.uk

Thank 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?
