Let's talk about death - Death cafe

After much planning, prayer and preparation, we held our Death Café on Saturday 14 May 2016. Whilst we cannot claim to have been inundated with visitors, we had some who had made the journey from Kirkstall and we know that we met the very real needs of some for whom bereavement is still very raw.

The ‘ Grave talk’ cards we’d placed on the coffee tables prompted some great conversations and despite them focusing on various aspects of death, gentle laughter could be heard throughout the morning.

Unbeknown to us at the time, it also provided an important time of preparation for the team which enabled them to support one of the team members who subsequently had to cope with a family death ... God works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform!

It was also good to see folk busy being creative with the craft activities, whilst engaging in meaningful conversation.

Thanks also to Cornerstone Christian Books for providing a bookstall in a box.

BabyBallet - Report to General Church Meeting

On behalf of all our students and staff at babyballet® Bradford North I would like to thank you, the church, and all its volunteers for running the café on a Saturday morning. It has proven very popular and encouraged our classes to grow to 4 in the morning, seeing 38 students each week.

The hall is always well clean, warm and welcoming for our little ones.

As a dance school we did our first show, for which we rehearsed in your hall and it was a great success, much enjoyed by all that took part and watched. We are planning another one for this year in June.

Christmas at Thackley

Our Christmas activities started in early November collecting donations for Christmas hampers for Bradford North Foodbank. Our Christmas Fair swiftly followed on a very chilly late November morning with the first snow of winter! The Fair raised over £600 and we are grateful to Monday Mums for serving refreshments, to the Ladies Group for their yummy cake stall, to the Brownies for their chocolate tombola, the Guides for their tombola and for making lip balm and to everyone else at Team TMC for the many varied ways in which they contributed to the success of the morning.

For several years we have shared one big card and given the money we would usually spend on cards to charity. The charity is Caring for Life which changes lives by sharing Jesus' love with the vulnerable; if you've not visited their wonderful coffee shop, make it a New Year's resolution to do so.

This year's fabulous Christmas card was made for us by Junior Church and donations amounted to £104.10.
