Francis Nabieu

Dear friends

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that the Rev Francis Nabieu has been killed in a car accident whilst in Sierra Leone. We do not have many more details.

Please keep his family and friends in your personal prayers as we will in our prayers in church on Sunday.

As we share in our shock and sadness at the loss of our dear brother, Francis, the Staff Team want to offer an opportunity for people to come together, to pray and remember.

We are therefore holding a gathering on Tuesday 17th May at 10am at New Earswick Methodist Church. We will worship, give an open space to remember Francis and pray together. This time will conclude with refreshments.

We are also going to partner with the Croydon Circuit, where Francis has been in ministry since last summer, in putting together a Book for Remembrance. There will be sheets of paper available at New Earswick next Tuesday and then for a time in our Circuit Office for people to write a prayer, tribute or thought.

Once people have had opportunity to offer a contribution we will send these to our friends in Croydon who are going to combine with what they collect there and arrange for them all to be bound.

Thank you for all your prayers as we support the family, his churches and one other.

With all good wishes

Leslie Newton
Superintendent, York Methodist Circuit

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:
