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.

Virtual Worship - 14 June 2020

Call to worship (based on Psalm 100)Shout with joy to the Lord
Worship the Lord with gladness.
Know that the Lord is God
It is God who made us, and we are God’sEnter God’s gates with thanksgiving
Come into God’s courts with praise Give thanks to God and praise God’s holy name.
The Lord is good God’s love endures for ever. Amen.
PrayerLord God, you made us, and we are yours, we are your people, the sheep of your pasture. As we focus on you this morning, and acknowledge that your presence makes the place in which we do this (wherever it is) a holy space, touch our hearts afresh with your love, that our lips may praise you and our lives serve you in all things. Amen.

You might like to sing, or reflect on the words of, Hymn StF 363, which begins, “My Jesus, my Saviour, Lord there is none like you. All of my days I want to praise the wonders of your mighty love”.

Read Romans 5:1-8First silently to yourself, then, if you can, out loud, from the Message Bible. I love the way…

Virtual Worship - 19 July 2020

Service sheet (pdf) Opening sentence:Those who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God...the Spirit makes you God’s children and by the Spirit’s power we cry out to God, ‘Abba, Father.
Song:Join in with or listen to ‘Sing of the Lord’s goodness’ (Singing the Faith 65) as we offer our praise to God. Alternatively, use a well-known hymn such as ‘Lord of all hopefulness’ (Singing the Faith 526, Hymns and Psalms 552) as we affirm the presence of God in our worship today.

Opening prayers:Creator God
We come to praise your name today,
We are confident of your love for us,
knowing that you want the very best for us and for your world.
Help us to be a people strong in Spirit
and faithful to your call,
so that the confidence you show in us
may be shown to be well placed.
And encourage us to share in the work of Jesus
that the good news of your saving grace
may be a message of hope and rejoicing
for all creation.

The Lord’s Prayer may be said here.
