Bible Month June 2017
James in June... A month with James... James a letter forever
We have been preparing for Bible Month since the end of 2016 and June is almost here.
This shows what is available to you in NYDC if you want to explore the challenging letter written by James to the church 2000 years ago that still has a relevance to Christians today.
In NYDC we will run with James from Sun 11 through to 29 June.
Gayle, West Burton, Richmond, Brompton-on-Swale and Hunton have all offered to host services on the theme of James.
Several Local Preachers have offered to work with James throughout the month. Sometimes it is has not been possible to match preacher availability and chapels; so, we have asked that preachers who have not offered to be involved to honour chapel wishes; this has been left to their discretion.
The Christians Together in Swaledale Bible Study group starts 27 April and usually meets every fortnight Thursdays at 2.30pm in Low Row URC. All are welcome.
West Burton Methodists are studying James on a Thursday evening at 7.30pm in the chapel schoolroom:
1 June — James 1
8 June — James 2
15 June — James 3:1-4:12
22 June — James 4:13-5:20

The workshops will provide space and time to reflect and respond in a creative and imaginative way to specific verses, certain passages or the letter as a whole. There will be something to prompt you if you want to take advantage of that facility.
If you are running something that isn't mentioned here please let us know.

It was bleak, snowy and foggy as the band of pilgrims set off on the Good Friday walk from Keld to Grinton. The trek over Kisdon on the 'Corpse Way' was slippery and muddy and on arrival in Muker the smiling faces of the parishioners greeted the travellers as in times of old. Following tradition our contemporary pilgrims would stop for a time of reflection, listening to the Easter story;...
Now is the Time!There are so many opportunities this year to share what a relationship with Christ means to us and to grow his church.
