Holiday at Home Reunion

On Tuesday 13th January at 7:30 pm at St. Andrews, I uttered the fateful words “There will be no snow, I have banned it”. At 7:31 pm, it began to snow!

On Wednesday 14th it snowed. We decided to go ahead with the celebration, and after anxious phone calls from various people, we prepared to receive our guests.

The weather might have been inclement, but the warmth of fun in the church was wonderful. Everyone was having a great time. After a vast quantity of tea/coffee and cakes, buns, etc, we settled down to a game of Musical Bingo. A visitor commented: “How can they guess the tunes, when they are all singing the songs?” Well, that is part of the magic.

Soon it was lunch and everyone had a right royal feast. (We had declared the day a non-diet day!)
After a delightful lunch we were entertained by Ken Romano, who spoiled everyone, with songs and dancing.

All through the day the guests were pampered by the Red Cross, having a relaxing hand, arm and neck massage. 

We finished the day with a short communion service, led by Rev Andrew and then went on our way.

I wish to thank EVERYONE who helped, in any way, to make this day such a success. Without their dedication, the day would not have happened.

Please note that Holiday at Home 2015 will take place on the 6th, 7th and 8th July at St. Andrew’s. Mark this in your diaries.

Holiday at Home is open to anyone who is housebound or does not go on regular holidays. If you would like more information, please contact me.  Details will be announced shortly, but be assured - it will be 3 wonderful days of fun and companionship.

I look forward to seeing everyone in July.

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 …
