Sorted goes to Sneaton Castle 2018

Sorted Youth Church, a fresh expression of church run by Rev Tracy Milne, of the Church Army, meets each week at Thackley Methodist Church.

In their latest newsletter, they write:

“Sorted will take up to 36 young people on their annual residential next year to Sneaton Castle. This will be a life changing experience for some of our local young people, as they struggle with a lack of self-esteem and confidence. Talking to a young person recently, Tracy mentioned the opportunity of going away next year with Sorted. The response is incredible: “I have not even been to Ilkley Moor or Baildon Moor ... never mind Whitby. I have never seen the sea.” The young person is nearly fifteen years old. “My dad says if it costs more than £20 then it’s too much.” The overall cost for each person is £168 excluding transport.

Please, if you are able to help us achieve the impossible by raising funds for young people to discover their potential, please use the donate button or contact us using the email address. We would love to hear from you, as we make a huge difference to those who are less fortunate than others.”

As a church we are hoping to hold a fund-raiser at some point in the coming months; however, if you wish to donate to this cause, you can do so at or email:

We look forward to welcoming Tracy and hearing more about Sorted’s work in our worship at 10.30 am on 4 February 2017. You are very welcome to come along.

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 …
