The Hope Club #1


Hello everyone, 

I hope you’re all doing well.

As you may already know, Pete-in-Touch and our weekly Family Focus Sheets are taking a break over the summer, but something new is here for August, and we’re really excited to share it with you!

The Hope Club is a weekly video, family fun sheet (a bit like family focus) and craft idea throughout the month of August, to help you have fun together as a family while spending time with God and each other. 

Episode One is up on our YouTube channel now, and you can go straight to it by clicking here. The family fun sheet and craft idea may befound here.

The videos feature a Bible story and some fun reflections on it from Dynamic Dan the magician, and the fun sheet has lots of great ideas for you to try based on the same story and theme. 

You might also like to have a look at this worship song too, which links to the theme here.

All of the resources for this have been provided by the Diocese of York Youth and Children's Advisor Carolyn Edwards and her team, so we're really grateful to them!

We hope you enjoy week 1 of The Hope Club! Do let us know your thoughts, and we’ll email you again with the second episode next week!

All blessings,

Rev Hannah

The August edition of Connected is available to download!


This month Claire Nutt writes about the search for serenity at the coast, and pushes against the tide of uncertainty that surrounds us all. Claire also shares Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr. Written towards the end of the last War it still remains relevant to us today.

Tony Service looks forward to the first Methodist Service since lockdown to be held on 16th August, but laments the setting aside of many of the key ingredients of Methodism, and in particular the lusty singing that forms a vital part of their worship.

Charlotte Watson reports on the putting together of Prayer Bags to help maintain continuing support for families during the summer break whilst face to face activities for children & young people has had to cease temporarily.

The rest of the magazine is my entire fault!
