Hello Everyone connected to Nunthorpe Methodist Church

As it's summer, this Newsletter is covering two months.

On 6 August we have another joint 10.15 am service with Marton, this time at Marton.

From Rev David: Some big news which has been made public today at the Methodist Conference in Birmingham:  The Members of Conference have elected Carolyn Godfrey as Vice President of the Methodist Conference for the year 2024-25.  It is a big representative role for the Methodist Church which will involve much travel around Britain and opportunities to travel abroad as well.  It is an annual appointment which starts in June 2024 and lasts for one year.  In this she will work closely with the newly elected President, Revd Helen Cameron.  (Note that in the presidential team the president is always an ordained person and the VP is always a lay person.)  It is obviously a great honour to be entrusted with this role, albeit a little scary too.  Please pray for Carolyn as she prepares to take up this office next summer and as she makes plans for her Vice Presidential year.  David.

Sadly, after a long illness,  Rose Ghosh’s husband Salil has passed away. A funeral service is arranged at St Bede’s Crematorium Wednesday August 2nd at 1.00pm. we send Rose and her family, our love.

Shirley Hinchley has agreed to co-ordinate the Prayer Group. There is now a secure  email address   prayerrequest@memc.uk      to which prayer requests may be made. Shirley will be able to receive your request securely. Please alter your handbook details until the next Handbook is issued in the new year.

Tom Ward, who spoke at the MHA Sunday, has sent this link for people to donate on-line, if they so wish,  to his Half -Marathon run:

Sunday 23 July, Rev Bill Middlemiss is our leading worship.

The Wednesday Hour meeting on 26th July at 2.30 will not now be a Bring and Buy event, instead it will be a “Crafternoon” led by Denise.  Good pun there!

If you know you need Advanced Safeguarding training [check with Mark] here are the details for Training events in August.

A thought from Milton Jones: If Christians are all different parts of one body, I've certainly met a few 'brains' who think, and some 'arms'  that do the carrying…but also a disproportionate amount of 'appendixes'  who don't appear to do anything at all, and some of whom will no doubt  one day cause a lot of trouble. Perhaps I'm one of them. What about you?

Next the Rotas… any mistakes my own…if you can't do a bible reading, a steward will always cover for you. Any other swaps are fine!

Saint Mary’s Church Walk

The first  walk this Aurumn will be on Tuesday 12th September. It will start from the car park at Mount Grace Priory. Arrive at about 9.45 for a 10am start. The car park is on the right at the top of the long drive which leaves the A19 just after the Tontine. £3 all day for non English Heritage members. Please share cars if possible because the car park gets full at lunch time.

Virtually all walks from the car park use the right of way leading steeply upwards through Mount Grace wood. Because of this the one I have chosen is only 3.1 miles. If we are lucky the views west are spectacular. I find a walking pole very useful coming back down through the wood. 7 stiles.

Nice cafe afterwards. All welcome. For further information contact me on 01642 316624 or at d.whilde@btinternet.com.
