Holiday at Home July 2017

Bradford North H@H was set for 3/4/5th July. On Monday 3rd July, we found over 53 guests and helpers descend on St. Andrews at 10am. We had several first timers, who soon settled in and began to enjoy themselves. The morning was taken up with getting to know one another and having a couple of quizzes.
Tuesday 4th July dawned bright and our coach (nice and new) arrived on time and so did our happy wanderers. We set off towards Liverpool to Knowsley Safari Park. Upon arrival, we had a delightful lunch.
After lunch, we boarded our cage (coach) to go and see the animals, who were free. We were not allowed to go round the baboon enclosure as the coach could be damaged.

Wednesday 5th July dawned all too quickly. This morning we were introduced to Chris Ellerton, who is an artist. He showed us how easy it is to do oil painting. Well, he made it look easy. This was very enjoyable and involved our participation.
After lunch, we were royally entertained by the Bradford Ukelele Band. Everyone was encouraged to join in, and even the helpers participated.
We rounded off Holiday at Home with communion, to thank God for our fun and friendship over the last 3 days.

A very big thank you to EVERYONE who helped in any way. We look forward to seeing everyone in January 2018.

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 …
