Scarborough Weekend 2014 - bookings now being taken

Each November, some of the St Andrew’s Church family spend a weekend away at Green Gables Hotel in Scarborough. This year’s weekend is to be on 14-16 November and will be led by Rev Christine King, who is joining the Bradford North Circuit ministerial team in September.

The weekend consists of a short welcome/introduction on the Friday evening, 2 sessions of 1 hour each on both Saturday and Sunday mornings on a theme chosen by the leader. Saturday and Sunday afternoons are free time, to explore Scarborough and surroundings, or to chill in the hotel, possibly swimming in the indoor pool! We have a family concert on Saturday evening. The weekend concludes with family communion at 4.00 pm on Sunday, followed by high tea. We return home around 6.00 pm.

The cost for the weekend, full board, is £115 per head. Children 5-12 years are half price and under 5s are free. The hotel is very comfortable, the food is very good and the company is…..what you make it! We have such a good time, this will be our 42nd weekend in 43 years!

We offer a warm invitation to anyone from the circuit to join us, for a weekend which is always stimulating, friendly and fun! If you would like to join us, or if you have any questions, please contact us. A deposit of £20 per head is required by the end of June, to secure your booking; please make cheques payable to “St. Andrew’s Methodist Church”.

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 …
