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

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?

Crag Road Church Drop In

On a Friday afternoon, Crag Road run a drop-in centre for local people in the Windhill area, who are struggling with life problems, such as Alcohol or Drug addiction. This has been running for 14 years and provides a valuable service to the community.

Recently numbers have dropped and we have changed the format to providing soup and a roll, along with hot drinks and biscuits. We brought the time on a Friday afternoon forward, from 2pm until 4pm to 1pm until 3pm.

The change has proved successful. However, due to illness, we really could use a couple of male helpers to work alongside our other helpers.

If you think that this could be your Cup of Tea (excuse the pun), then please contact John

Allerton Friday Fellowship

In March last year, we started a conversation with the young people at Allerton about whether they wanted a chance to meet up together during the week, and what sort of group they might like.
They had a think and came up with some suggestions, and so in June we launched the ‘First Friday Fellowship’, a group which meets monthly on the first Friday evening of the month. We had a month off in August, but otherwise have met every month since.

The young people come together for a mixture of food, fellowship, fun and games and faith conversations. The young people involved are regular attenders and there is a good atmosphere amongst the group. As we go into the new year, we are looking at different activities to get involved with, including encouraging links with other groups in the local area and across the circuit.

If you have any young people in your churches, who might like to get involved, in either this group or the Thursday evening group at St Andrew’s, please get in touch.
