"Healthy Churches" day

Do you remember the series of services which were delivered in all our churches by a team of preachers in early 2013? The sermons covered ‘Seven Marks of a Healthy Church’ and provided a scriptural context to the consultations which have followed.

Well, we have arranged for the author of the ‘Healthy Churches Handbook’, Canon Robert Warren, to come to the circuit to lead a one-day seminar called “Developing Healthy Churches”, which will help us to look at how we might make changes to the way we run our churches, in order to make them more attractive to outsiders and more ready to serve our neighbours. The seminar will take place on Saturday 20 September at St Andrew’s, Undercliffe from 10.00 am until 3.00 pm. Canon Warren, is a most inspiring speaker and his ideas are very stimulating.

If we are serious about building the kingdom of God in north Bradford, then we cannot afford to miss what Robert will say to us. If we do not think it important to build the kingdom, then why are we here? God speaks to us through many channels, and Robert Warren is without doubt one of them.

I urge you to put the date in your diary and encourage anyone else who has a heart for God’s kingdom, to put the date in their diary. Saturday 20 September.

More details and booking forms will be available throughout August and into September. This could be a significant event in the life of our circuit. Please do not miss out!

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 …
