Together...in Worship
Together...in Mission
Together...in Discipleship

On Sunday 10th July 2016 we will be gathering 'together' from across the Circuit for a special event, and everyone is invited!

To have enough space for everyone we're hiring the York Barbican for the day and will be having a great time of worship together. OneSound (formerly the MAYC Youth Orchestra and Singers) have been invited to lead us musically and guest speakers will be bringing us their take on what it means to be 'together'- as churches, as a Circuit, and as the Methodist Church in partnership with others.

The first session starts at 11am, and we expect to finish about 2.30pm. Tea and coffee will be available and a light lunch will be provided. There will be some great children's sessions led by Big Ministries, and thought-provoking youth sessions. We also hope to provide a creche. We want everyone to be able to come as we think about what it means to be 'together' as a Circuit. So there's no cost for the event and the Circuit will be helping arrange transport to the Barbican.

'Save the date' cards will be making their way to churches over the next few weeks- ask your church steward or contact the Circuit office.

More details will be available soon, along with booking forms as we need to know how many people are coming. For now, save the date and tell your friends!

Keep an eye on the Together webpage for more details and the latest information.

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:
