The President and Vice President of the Methodist Church have released Easter messages, reminding people of the Easter message of hope, passion and joy in the midst of despair.

Vice President Dr Jill Barber said: "This Easter we share Christ's tears for our world in all its pain. For children drowned fleeing from the unimaginable horrors of war. For unaccompanied children in the jungle at Calais."
"The Easter message is one of ... life from death, love stronger than hate. At the moment of utter darkness, the light of the risen Christ breaks through."

The Revd Steven Wild, President, added: "This Easter, with joy and love, may we all cry Hallelujah and encounter the risen Lord."

You can read more and listen to the Presidents' Easter message on the Methodist website.

Lidgett — Three Day Accredited Godly Play training course -- Wed 26th -- Fri 28th April 2017
Lidgett Methodist Church, Wheatlands Grove, York YO26 5NH

This certificated course is being led by accredited members of the College of Trainers of Godly Play UK. Over 3 days (minimum 25 hours training) this training develops your ability to use Godly Play methods and understand its principles. The training follows an action/reflection model of learning -- learning through hands-on experience and reflection rather than lectures. There is a mixture of trainer-led sessions, and opportunities for coached participant storytelling presentations. We work in a model Godly Play environment, with the opportunity to use and see a comprehensive set of resources. Each day focuses on different kinds of Godly Play (sacred stories, parables and liturgical action/Church practice) so you will learn how different genres of Christian language can support spiritual exploration. Workshops in the core module also cover: Setting up a Godly Play Environment, the Spirituality of Childhood, your particular concerns and questions.
Godly Play story telling techniques are being used in more and more settings and situations from churches to schools and care homes so the course is open to anyone who wishes to attend.
The cost is £295 per person which includes a detailed training handbook, lunch each day as well as refreshments in coffee/tea breaks.
The course runs from 8.30am each morning and finishes on the first and second day at 6.30pm and the final day at 5.00pm.
Bookings need to made through Godly Play UK and you can find out more and download an application form via their website:
