Save The Date
On the back of previous enjoyable trips to Hull, Halifax and the Quaker Tapestries in Kendal last summer, Brian Henderson and Mark Braithwaite are organising this year's outing to Saltaire (nr Bradford) on Saturday 4th July 2020.
Taking its name from its founder Sir Titus Salt and the River Aire that runs through the village, Saltaire was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2001 as one of the earliest, largest and best preserved 19th century 'model villages' anywhere in the world.
Titus Salt founded the mill, the factory school, almshouses and United Reformed Church (all of which are now visitor attractions) in order to plan a new community where his workforce would be healthier, happier and more productive. More detail to follow but if you are interested in joining the trip please contact Brian or Mark.
The next Table Talk will be at church Thursday 27th February at 1:30 until 3pm. Come for conversation, company and cake!
Our guest speaker 26th February has had a call to attend Poland ! We will reschedule her talk and this week we will have an open session . We already have some interesting stories to tell. See you on Wednesday!

Rev Pye has agreed to lead a Workshop for us: Challenges in Pastoral Caring. This will be held at Trinity Church Acklam 1pm-
1. Why care? What do we mean by “pastoral care” and how do we do it?
2. All that lives must die: Offering pastoral care in bereavement and loss.
3. The greatest fear. Pastoral care for those with mental illness, disability or dementia.
The sessions will be interactive and varied in content and resources, with opportunities for Q&A.
We warmly encourage pastoral visitors and all church members involved in “caring” in our congregations, so that’s you, to come to this event. It should be good.
Rev Dr Pye is also leading worship on Sunday 1st March at a Circuit Service in Marton Methodist Church starting at 10am. We look forward to seeing you all there.
