West Yorkshire Youth Network Together - 23 February

West Yorkshire Youth Network Together – 23-2-14

WYYN Together is the first event for the new West Yorkshire Youth Network. We will be meeting together at Cornerstone Methodist Church in the Bradford South Circuit on Sunday 23rd February between 3.30 and 8.00pm. The program for the evening is included below but it will be a great opportunity for young people between the ages of 11 and 21 to get together. There will be opportunities for socialising and meeting new people, discussing issues that are important to them, for getting involved in worship, to eat together and to meet the Methodist Youth President Tamara Wray.

This is a fantastic opportunity to prepare for the first Youth Synod that will be running alongside the main Synod in May, to get to know the people that will be there and to have an opportunity to influence the topics that might be discussed at this and future Synods. I encourage anyone who works with any people in this age group to do their best to bring as many as possible.

Booking for the event will be preferred however is not essential, it is however, necessary for each group that attends to have a signed permission form for each young person that includes asking for permission to use photos taken at the event for publicity purposes. We are also asking that each group that attends bring something to be given to the ‘bring and share’ tea.

If you have any questions about the event please contact me on 07412013849 or the District Office on 01484 719993

God bless

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 …
