Joy in Enough: The Big Workshop
Saturday 18 November 2017
Victoria Hall, Norfolk Street, Sheffield S1 2JB
It’s time to create an economy which is good news for the Earth and all its people. The Big Workshop will be a day building a faith-led movement for a truly sustainable economy. Let’s do it together.
What role can faith communities play in creating a sustainable economy? At the Big Workshop we’ll be exploring that question, and working together to build a faith-led movement for a new economy.
Come to our Big Workshop. Together we will:
· Explore a Christian vision for human flourishing within natural limits.
· Test-drive the new learning guide for church groups that we are developing.
· Build alliances with other organisations.
· Meet like-minded people working for a fair and sustainable future.
The Big Workshop is for:
· Individuals who would like to develop their ideas further in this area, and to help build a movement for change to a truly sustainable economy
· representatives of organisations with whom collaboration would be of mutual benefit

Here are the details of a special evening we have coming up at York Baptist Church with Paul Jones and Fiona Hendley. Paul was the lead singer of Manfred Mann and The Blues Band and now presents his own show on BBC Radio 2. His wife Fiona is an acclaimed west end actress and singer.
The evening will have an evangelistic theme and is a real opportunity to draw in non-believers. Paul & Fiona will be telling their own humorous and fascinating story of how success in show business never brought them the happiness they craved, and how they came to trust in Christ and the transformation that has brought about. Although not a concert as such, the evening will include Paul & Fiona singing songs from their album.
The event will be held at York Baptist Church on Priory Street (just off Micklegate) at 7:30pm on Saturday 7 October (doors will open at 7pm). All are welcome to attend and there is no charge.
Please make this known among folk at your church or with friends and please encourage Christians to bring non-Christian friends along with them.
On the 23rd September Harry and Pamela Lydiate will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.
On the Sunday at the 9 o@clock service they will be renewing their vows.
After the service there will be tea and cakes in the Belfrey Hall.
Come and join the Belfrey Seniors as we visit the National Trust's property, Goddard's House and Garden, former home to the Terry's (chocolate) family. Located on Tadcaster Road, we will be going on Friday 6 October at 2pm and will have the chance to look round and also have a drink in their cafe.
The cost is free to NT members, £7 gift aid or £6.30 without. There is no parking on site unless blue badge holder but there is parking in nearby streets. The number 4 bus also stops close by at the Marriott Hotel. Tea and coffee is not included in the cost.
For more details and to register your attendance please pick up a booking form in the Narthex or speak to Deb Stephens, Pam Lyidate or Alison Barthow.
Wednesday 4th October 2017 4.00pm at the Spearehead Hall, St Mary’s Church, Strensall
The forty-five minute seminar will be followed by questions and discussion. John has written and taught widely about Christian healing and deliverance and is currently guest preacher at Leicester Cathedral.
A lite bite soup supper will be provided for those wishing to stay for a Healing Service which starts at 7.30pm For catering purposes please let us know if you intend to stay for supper. Tel 01904 490683 or e mail firstname.lastname@example.org All are welcome to attend either or both of these events.
It is with regret that we have decided to have a break from running Cards, coffee and Crafts this coming term i.e. from September to Christmas. Numbers have declined and, although we have several very enthusiastic regulars, we feel we need some time to reassess the format of our gatherings and how we should continue on the future. Those of us who run the group also need a break at present for various reasons. We would ask you to pray with us about these matters and any thoughts or suggestions would be very welcome. A big thank you to those of you who have supported us. We hope to return with a renewed vision. Thank you.
Woodthorpe Belfrey Group.
Due to so many folk registered for this seminar (originally planned for Tue 12th Sept) being still on holiday into Sept it has now been rescheduled for Tue 7th Nov in the Belfrey Hall at 7.00pm.
Further details will be issued later. My apologies for this adjustment and looking forward to welcoming everyone on Tue 7th Nov.
North Yorkshire Police have been made aware of members of the public receiving phone calls from a male, speaking in a foreign accent, claiming to be from BT advising them that their computer has alerted them to problems in relation to their Broadband/Router. He claims that it is being heavily infected with a virus and as such BT need to send an engineer to their property the next day. But beforehand they require the customer to log onto their computer to facilitate a fault report for the engineer. If the customer refuses to go along with their scam, the male becomes extremely abusive. If you have been victim to such a phone call please contact Action Fraud on 0300 1232040
Do you live in or around the Tang Hall/Burnholme/Heworth area of York?
York Neighbours is particularly looking for volunteers in these areas at the moment. There is no minimum time commitment other than completing a basic training session of two hours. Volunteers are emailed with one-off tasks such as changing a lightbulb for an older person not able to do it and with no-one to ask. This is a great way to ‘love your neighbour’. Please see our website for further information www.yorkneighbours.org.uk and if you are interested please email email@example.com or phone Helen Aitchison or Sarah Wallis on 01904 891627. Thank you.
