We are sad that Sharon is leaving ....

Sharon, our Children's Work Enabler, left the Circuit at the end of March ...

“Arriving at the first meeting of Sharon's support group, 8 years ago, little did I know I was stepping in to the path of a whirlwind! A whirlwind that would bring Jesus into the lives of so many children, firstly in the Woodhouse Grove circuit and then in the Bradford North circuit. The whirlwind that was Sharon! God bless Sharon.”  Rodney, Calverley.

“Hi Sharon ,
This is the Naughty boy !!! from Crag Road. But today, for you, I am trying to be good. From Crag Road Methodist Church and High Crag Primary School, we give you our ‘Thanks’ for all the help and inspiration you have given us over the past few years. We all wish you the very best for the future, in whatever path you take. Every blessing.” David, Crag Road

Sharon knows that Saltaire Methodist Church is going into Saltaire Primary School again this year. This work started with Sharon offering to lead a day based on Noah's Ark to our local primary school. She did this and we've continued annually since. This will be our fourth year. We'd never have thought of it, so though it has been modified over the years, without Sharon it would never have happened!” Ann, Saltaire

 “Two words to sum up Sharon's work at St Andrew's - ABOUT THIS.
Whenever I needed an extra idea, 'How ABOUT THIS?'
Whenever we needed an extra hand 'What ABOUT THIS?' and points to herself.
Whenever I was going astray 'but what ABOUT THIS?'
Our 'ABOUT THIS' will greatly be missed. Debbie, St Andrew’s

“Sharon is ray of sunshine coming into our church. It is always a joy to have her with us and to share her joy in Jesus.” Chris T, Thackley

More next month!

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 …
