In June and July 2017 the York Circuit will be taking part in the national Bible Month initiative.
In churches, preaching at services on 18th & 25th June and 2nd & 9th July will be based on the book of James. Focusing on one book will help us to look at it in greater depth.
We'll also be encouraging people to take part in Bible Month in small groups, both existing groups and new ones that will be set up. Growing strong small groups is a circuit priority linked to our Vision and we hope this will encourage more people to be part of a group.
As a circuit, we will be joining together on Sunday 16th July at Central Methodist Church from 2pm- 5.30pm to celebrate what we have learned and think about how to put this into practice in our lives. We will also take this opportunity to look back at the last year of circuit life and ahead to plans for the future. As part of this we'll be making time to say goodbye to staff who are leaving. We hope the day will have something for all ages, and will be arranging a creche for our youngest members and a welcoming space for those who need a bit of help to get around.
We hope you'll want to be involved, whether you are a preacher, group leader or just interested in learning more about the Bible and how it applies to our lives. Download the resources available on this page and watch out for more information coming soon!
