Haworth Road Methodist Church Children’s Holiday Club

At Haworth Road Methodist Church, we celebrated our 19th annual children’s holiday club, during the last week of July, based on a theme of Frozen Fun. 26 children (aged 5 – 10) took part and enjoyed activities for 2 hours each morning, linking the film of Frozen to various Bible stories.  
Two story-tellers related stories from both the film and from the bible and the main link which developed was one of friendship, identifying the friendships which developed in the film, the friendships which the children developed with each other throughout the week’s activities, the friends Jesus had during his ministry and teaching that Jesus is a friend to us all.

Lots of fun was had making model fishing nets (complete with fish), making beautiful snowflakes using only sheets of paper and scissors, building (flat topped roof) houses out of paper and also making little Trolls (film characters) out of marshmallows and cocktail sticks. Lots of ingenuity was evident in all of the various designs!

The children also learnt and sang choruses each day using sign language and gave a wonderful rendition of these on the final day when parents and church members attended the final session.                      
The final activity, which proved to be the highlight of the week, was the building of two huge Ice Palaces from blocks of Ice, in varying shapes and sizes, these came from staff members freezers (it is amazing how long ice stays frozen when you join them all together in building blocks). A stunning addition to the Palaces were quantities of artificial snow which the children mixed themselves and spread around with gusto!

Many thanks to all our volunteer helpers and we now look forward to our 20th anniversary next year. In the meantime we can now all restock our freezers with food!

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 …
