Greek in a Week - 24 - 28 August 2015

Greek in a Week! 

For those who want to learn NT Greek from scratch or brush up on old knowledge.

Led by: Revd Dr Roger Walton;
Cost £50 plus cost of basic text book;
Venue: Trinity Methodist Church Duckett Street Skipton BD23 2EJ ; 
Daily 9.30am-4pm. 

This 5 day course aims to get you started with the Greek language of the New Testament, to gain a basic vocabulary and to introduce you to Greek grammar. By the end of the week you will be able to:

  • read passages of the NT with the help of a dictionary; 
  • use commentaries on the Greek text; 
  • identify issues in translation and exegesis; 
  • use some of the techniques for studying the Greek Text. 
The week will not make you an expert nor will it cover all you need to read the New Testament fluently but it should provide a good foundation for learning NT Greek, on which you can build with the course text book. It will also give you a flavour of reading the text in the original language and will be fun!

Introductory Evening 7-9pm 10 August 2015
Venue:  Trinity Methodist Church Duckett Street, Skipton, BD23 2EJ

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.

Church Building at Thackley!

How would a gingerbread church with icing doors and chocolate finger organ pipes appeal? Junior Church at Thackley had been busy building such an edifice for a couple of weeks, before the part-completed church was creatively used as the basis of an inspired service, put together by worship leader, Gill Dobson.

Using the Lectionary readings and carefully chosen hymns, poems and prayers, Gill gave us a timely reminder that our churches are the people, not the building, and that we are all part of God’s Church – all our churches belong to Him – not us!

We considered how the children were building their gingerbread church on the groundwork of the Junior Church leaders and how in a similar way we were building Thackley Church, in the sense that the church is who we are and what we do. We were asked to think how we might describe Thackley - a busy church? A traditional church? An ageing church? A lively church? A tired church? A caring church?
