Holiday at Home: 13 January 2016


This winter has been one of rain and floods and people having to evacuate their homes. The news has been depressing. Well, all that has changed for our intrepid Holiday at Homers. Wednesday 13th January was cold but bright. The frost was on the ground when a group of about 50 people descended on St. Andrew’s Church for the Holiday at Home celebration.

We were introduced to a potted history of Bradford and then a mind-stretching quiz about recognising famous people from the 1920’s, 30’s & 40’s. Trevor R from Haworth Road Church regaled us with very humorous accounts and poems, regarding our more senior years.

Having had our appetites whetted, we moved into the church for lunch. Once again the food was wonderful in both quality and quantity. The one thing about Holiday at Home is you never go away hungry. It never ceases to amaze me how much food disappears.

After lunch, we were royally entertained by Stevie L, who took us back to the 1950’s. He caused a few hearts to flutter as he flirted with our ladies. We finished the day with a simple communion service, before it was time to be transported home again.

A great time was had by one and all. We have had the most people this time. With guests and helpers we had 52 people at St. Andrew’s. Our guests are very special people and so are our helpers. I would like to thank everyone who helped in any way to make this day such a happy occasion.

If you have never been to Holiday at Home, ask the people from the Circuit who come, or ask me. If you are not sure if you would enjoy it, then come in July and try it. Please keep the dates of 4th, 5th and 6th July 2016 free in your Diaries. There will be all sorts to do and a wonderful day trip on the Tuesday.

So be prepared for July - I look forward to seeing old faces and new ones then.

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 …
