Asian Christmas Celebrations at St Andrew's


There was a huge Christmas party held at the St. Andrew's church hall on 21st December, which included Christmas carols, a Christmas message and Asian food. The superintendent minister, Rev Nick Blundell, did the opening prayer for the Christmas programme. In this programme, we prayed for the people in Great Britain, for the Government and for Queen of Great Britain as well. We pray that God will give her long and healthy life. 

People from all over the England attended this party and also people from other faiths were present. They also took part in the Christmas carols. 

We received the following letter from the Christian village in Pakistan, which we support:-

“Dear friends,
Firstly we like to wish you a very happy new year! We pray that this year brings a lot of happiness and peace into our lives. We really appreciate and thank you for organizing a huge Christmas present for the poor Christians in Shanti Nagar. We would like to thank those in charge of St. Andrew’s church, Rev Nick Blundell, the Senior Steward, Martin and whole of the church congregation.  We are really thankful to everybody and admire the hard work which is done by St. Andrew’s church. This shows that we Christians in Pakistan are not alone and we will always have people of God who will look after us.”

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 …
