Sharing Christmas with others at Haworth Road


Once again Christmas started on 10th November when, in our Sunday service, we were able to dedicate 36 Shoeboxes before their long journey to children & families in Eastern Europe, who otherwise would receive nothing. We held a Coffee evening for Action for Children, an event shared with Trinity Church, Wilsden. The first Saturday in December was our Christmas Market when so many people from the area enjoyed looking at various stalls and fellowship during refreshments.
The next event was to sing carols with the Stroke Group who used to meet at Church but now meet at Café West in Allerton. They were so delighted to share with us once again.

Our annual Senior Citizens’ Party for the local community, organised by Church and Sports Club members, took place with entertainment following an excellent meal, as always.

The annual Ecumenical Community Carol Service led by Rev. Christine felt special.

We once again prepared an evening meal for the homeless, through the Inn Churches Project. This year, First Martyrs Church opened their church for a week 18th-25th Dec. to accommodate them for Dinner, Bed & Breakfast. The Sunday School children raised £300 for the Children’s Air Ambulance at their Gift Day and Nativity service.

On 16th December the Down’s Syndrome Group, who meet monthly at our church, held their Christmas Party during which time they go into church to look at all the decorations and the tree, sharing in a very short service. They are fascinated with the Nativity, and they often like to take baby Jesus out of this crib to hold him, much to the parents’ fear of them breaking him!

The final event was a group of members touring the area singing carols for those known to us who were infirm and elderly. Donations were again for Action for Children.

What a joy it was to share the Christmas message with so many people and to have such a positive response.

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.

Call to worship (based on Psalm 100)Shout with joy to the Lord

The Lord is good God’s love endures for ever. Amen.
PrayerLord God, you made us, and we are yours, we are your people, the sheep of your pasture. As we focus on you this morning, and acknowledge that your presence makes the place in which we do this (wherever it is) a holy space, touch our hearts afresh with your love, that our lips may praise you and our lives serve you in all things. Amen.

You might like to sing, or reflect on the words of, Hymn StF 363, which begins, “My Jesus, my Saviour, Lord there is none like you. All of my days I want to praise the wonders of your mighty love”.


Read Romans 5:1-8First silently to yourself, then, if you can, out loud, from the Message Bible. I love the way…
