On Sunday, April 20th, the Sunday @8 team have been invited by all the Anglican churches from the north Scarborough group to lead a joint evening Easter Praise celebration at Burniston. The speaker will be Rev. Alistair Fearnley from St Lawrence’s church. It will start at the usual time of 8pm, with music commencing from 7.45pm. All are very welcome at this special Easter Day service.


Scarborough Churches are now invited to register their participation in …


Spring Tide 14 is a week of outreach to the community 21st to 27th June, 2014. It’s aim is to encourage each participating church to make some of its usual midweek meetings “guest events” during the mission week.  The idea is then to invite people who do not normally attend church, to attend a guest event. Spring Tide 14 is then a great opportunity to introduce friends, relatives or work colleagues to link up with your own local church.

The week will begin with a town centre Barbecue on Saturday 21st June, from 12.00pm to 2.00 pm in Alma Square. Continue reading

Circuit Prayer letter for April

The circuit prayer letter for April is available here, plus an exciting addition about the Singing for fun group at Seamer submitted by Jim Lawson:

“The prayer notes concerning Seamer Methodist church for April don’t truly reflect the value and importance which the Singing for Fun Group has been able to make towards the worship and spirit of this small church. God moves in a mysterious way He has certainly moved in this church since the SFF started in October 2013 Christmas at Bell Close, Christmas Dinner at Green gables. Fellowship and fun every Friday afternoon when the Sunday Hymns are practised. Preachers and Worship leaders enjoy coming to Seamer and are uplifted by the power of our worship through song and comment upon its value to them publicly.the handicapped residents and staff from Derwent house love to come along on a Sunday morning and sing along with us. Now we are starting to sing John Rutter music to further enhance our Sunday Services.It is so beautiful to listen to and to sing and worship with. Arising from the spirit which our Fridays has developed. We sing together we pray with spirit and meaning together we are becoming a united church with a spirit of the love and fellowship for our fellow members which is Christian and truly Methodist. All are welcome to come and sing with us. It is great to notice the support which we receive from St Martins Church members on a Friday afternoon. Arising from our SFF we now have our own Church welcome packs to connect with the new people and families moving into the village.”

Rainbow Centre news

Our Churches supporting the Rainbow Centre would like to offer breakfast to some of their clients on Saturday mornings, 8-9.30am. This will be somewhere in the town centre (yet to be decided)

To do this we need people and help and ideas….

Please come along to a (one off) meeting on February 27th 7pm at Westborough. Tea, coffee and sticky buns will be served.

or if you can’t make that but want to be involved in some way then speak to Mark Haynes or Lesley Usher

After unprecedented requests for food parcels – the Rainbow sheds are bare!!  Would it be possible for your church to have a Rainbow food donation box?  The idea is that when doing your normal shopping trip you buy 1 or 2 extra items for the box.  These are often items on special offer.  If there is someone within your church who would be happy to coordinate this and contact me, I could arrange delivery/collections and answer any other questions you may have.  The Rainbow Centre is always grateful for your continued support in these difficult times!  Many thanks.
