Major Announcement


The Circuit Stewards have great pleasure in sharing with you, that following a successful visit to the Circuit at the beginning of December, Revd Jane Carter has accepted our invitation to serve as a presbyter in the North Yorkshire Coast Methodist Circuit from September 2016, with pastoral charge of Briggswath & Sleights, Fylingthorpe, Hawsker, Littlebeck, Robin Hood’s Bay and Whitby churches.

Her husband Deacon Andrew Carter has also been stationed (by direct stationing) in our circuit from September 2016 and will work amongst the church communities south of Boggle Hole.

Both appointments are of course subject to Conference approval, but we look forward in hopeful expectation to welcoming Jane and Andrew to the circuit.


Jane writes ‘Both Andrew and I came away from our visit feeling very excited and we look forward to being among you.’

We would like to thank all those church stewards and others who rallied round at very short notice to share in the visit and contributed in so many ways to the successful outcome. Please continue to pray that all will go well in the coming months.

Circuit Service on Sunday 14th February at Westborough Methodist Church

Refreshments will be available from 5.00 pm and this will allow time for members across the circuit to chat and catch up on each other’s news.

There are two acts of worship being held at 6.00 pm and people can choose which one they prefer to attend.

Rev Peter Cross will be leading the traditional methodist preaching service, with the organ accompanying the hymns, in the main body of the church with Rev Graham Morgan preaching.

The alternative worship is being led by Rev Rosie Coles with the assistance of Rev Denise Free, Rev Emma Morgan and Deacon Helen Webster in the Lecture Hall.

Storytelling – Cross Hill, Hunmanby

Storytelling on Saturday 20th February 2016 from 10.00 am to 3.30 pm.

Rev Jacky Hale is an experienced storyteller having undertaken training both for secular storytelling and in retelling the Christian story for all ages.  She has recently added Godly Play to her library of gifts too.

In this day at Cross Hill, it is hoped that that those who have experience in storytelling, alongside with those who wonder if they have this gift, may experience new ways, renewed confidence and be challenged at how accessible story telling is as a way to share our faith.

So whether you are a leader of worship, Junior Church leader, church organisation leader or group speaker, along with grandparents, parents and other family members BUT especially as a Christian, this day is for you.  Come along and have fun!

Jesus was a great storyteller – come and learn to follow in His footsteps.
