NYD Webteam: March 2017
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.

At midday Mon 23 March 2020 the Methodist Church announced the closure of all its churches for the foreseeable future. The only exception will be for churches that are offering essential social outreach such as foodbanks, soup kitchens and night shelters, but these must be carried out closely within Government guidelines. The Methodist Church suspended worship services last week with some...
With Services and meetings cancelled for the time being we are being encouraged to worship in our own homes. There are plenty of options available to help you if you prefer not to DIY. The Methodist Church and other churches are all making service sheets available for this time; as are independent organisations such as 'Roots' and 'The Worship Cloud'. These are generally...
