On Saturday 2nd February from 10:00 am – 11:30 am Scalby Methodist Church are hosting a Coffee Morning in support of MHA Priceholme Amenity Fund. Stalls: books, cakes & Fairtrade.
Just a reminder that this Sunday night, 20th January at 6:30 pm is the Joint Service for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity which this year will be held at the Salvation Army Citadel (66 Victoria Rd, YO11 1SF).
As we are now in the week of Prayer for Christian Unity, it would be good if we could all worship together in a service that is being used around the world. Please announce in your churches on Sunday morning
Do you like playing badminton?
Here at Westborough we have a badminton club that has been meeting on Thursday evenings for over 30 years. Our members range from teens to seventies and we enjoy playing badminton and socializing over a coffee and biscuit.
Currently we are low on numbers and would welcome interested players from other churches in the Circuit.
Our standard of play is as varied as our ages so if you fancy a game come along on Thursdays from 8:30 pm till 10:00 pm in the Lecture Hall at Westborough or contact Paul or Claudy Dixon on 01723 370454 or email email@example.com for further details.

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year and I love it!
I love Christmas, I always have and I guess I always will.
The decorations, the presents; giving and receiving, yes, socks as well, I don’t really mind as long as they are colourful and comical.
Oh yes, the food and the drink, I love my Christmas dinner.
And Jesus! I mustn’t forget Jesus, sadly many people do.
I’m not talking about the baby Jesus, rather I am talking about The Lord Jesus, the greatest gift that this world has ever received.
Jesus is God’s gift to the world and Jesus is the reason for the season. The heart of the Christmas message is ‘God is with us’.
This Christmas, in the midst of all the busyness make sure that Jesus is at the heart of your celebrations you won’t regret it!
A very happy, Christ centred and blessed Christmas.
