Talking about the 'e' word

On Thursday March 28, Leeds Diocese are running a special training day at St Peter’s Church, Gildersome called 'Talking about the 'E' Word'. By 'E' word we actually mean evangelism word. For so many in the church today, evangelism can be a scary concept and difficult to apply to our everyday lives. Therefore, this day aims to inspire and equip all involved in evangelism within the church. It will be lead by the Revd Canon Robin Gamble (Bishop's Adviser for Church Growth), Revd Canon Sophie Jelley (Diocese of Durham) and Revd Matt Woodcock (Diocese of York). They will help those attending think about the four basic skills and pieces of ministry involved in this great work: 1. Scattering seeds 2. Personal one to one 3. Running and presenting at evangelistic events 4. Organising an inquirers’ group If you wish to book a place or for more information please contact Robin at

Carols at Christmas

It is Christmas time again and everyone is busy buying presents, making plans, arranging Christmas dinner, visiting German markets, watching pantomimes and listening to the same classic Christmas songs.  Of course there is another type of Christmas music that speaks a different message. A message of hope, joy and love in the form of a baby called Jesus born in a stable over 2000 years ago. They call them Christmas carols.   In churches and chapels all across Yorkshire the great carols will be sung again this Christmas. Why don't you come and sing along to the great carols at your local church? Find your nearest church or chapel at
