A Service of Light suitable for all ages as we enjoy carols led by Hall Royd Band introduced by some of our young people. The service will be led by Tim Billingsley and after the service we hope to be entertained to a medley of Christmas tunes. All are welcome to join us for refreshments.

Well done to the Brownies and Guides who presented a Nativity with a difference. The Superheroes were worried – they’d heard a rumour that someone was coming who would save the world. Hey that was their job! Who was trying to take it away from them? Well they learnt, of course, that the baby born to Mary in the stable at Bethlehem was the One who God had sent. Mary and Joseph had trudged from Nazareth with their ‘donkey‘ to arrive at Bethlehem but all the (Holiday) Inns were full and they had to rest in the stable.
The brownies were our host of angels who delighted us with their choir, singing “It was on a Starry Night..”, then a different version of “While Shepherds Watched their Flocks..” to the tune of ‘Sweet Chiming Christmas Bells’ and the opening verse of “Away in a Manger”. They were all nearly ‘outshone’ by the star (of the performance?) who led the shepherds and the kings around the church guiding them to the inn where Jesus slept in the manger. The shepherds had already nearly shot out of their skins when the angel Gabriel gave them the news.
What a delight it was. Thank you to everyone who took part or helped the girls to put the service together.

Around 100 people of all ages enjoyed the fun and fellowship at the Light Party. Sizzling Hot Dogs were on offer, a sensory room was set up with glittering lights and everyone had a great time!

The latest concert proved a great success with guest band London Metropolitan Brass taking one half and delighting everyone with a stirring arrangement of “Ilkley Moor b’aht at”. After refreshments, our own Hall Royd Band opened the second half and the finale saw the two bands combine for the final rousing piece.
Everyone who attended said it was a wonderful performance.
A retiring collection was taken with money being donated to Northcliffe Church but also to “Jessie’s Fund”, a charity which provides music therapy for children with complex needs.

Our service was prepared and led by members of our congregation. The children helped with Bible readings and collecting our offering for All We Can and gifts for the local Food Bank. The focus was on material provided by All We Can based on ways to support farmers in Ethiopia who struggle to combat climate challenges. We zoned in on potatoes and even wrote chip prayers which we placed in chip baskets and then read out during the service. As the church was set out in cafe style it was easy for the children to come round offering us potato nibbles – crisps, hula hoops and so on. We enjoy potatoes in so many ways. It was good to hear how potato seeds are helping families in Ethiopia too.
Guides meet on Tuesday evenings. A vibrant group for girls from 10 years is complemented by a Senior Section from 14. This inclusive company welcomes girls of all abilities. Contact Adele Dolby 01274 426093 Julie[...]
