March Connected

The March edition of Connected is available to download or view online. This month, Revd. Glenda reflects on Lent and the plight of lonely people in our society, whilst Tony Service looks forward to the Churches Together Lent meetings. We also remember the life of Pete Beevers who sadly died recently.

There are reports from a recent Brayton MU meeting, and I finally find space to rabbit on about the St Wilfrid’s Churchyard. Also the recent Burns Night Supper is (partially) remembered, the Book Club celebrates 10 years, and St Francis finds itself on BBC Radio York...
Finally there is a report on the Baptism and Confirmations administered by Bishop John during Holy Communion at St Wilfrid’s.

February Connected

The February edition of Connected is available to download or view online. David Coote reflects on the importance of the cross to the period of Lent. There are some thoughts on the link between Lent and Valentine’s Day from Tony Service, plus opposing views on the importance of diet to Lent. The Brayton MU remembers their AGM whilst the St Francis Crafters celebrate a splendid fund raising achievement during 2017.

We also have some images of the St Wilfrid’s Decorators taking down the decorations on 12th Night. The Zone remembers chips at Doncaster Dome Ice Rink, and I report on the excellent concert given by the Voice Youth Choir and Orchestra in Selby Abbey.

The Giving in Grace Team say thank you, and Selby Foodbank looks ahead with some concern over the introduction of Universal Credit in Selby District.

January Connected

This month the printed version of Connected was produced early in December so that the printing and stapling could be finished before  the Christmas festivities began. The online edition was much more flexible and therefore there is much more in this version this month. In both editions Revd. Pete Watson gives thanks for the results of the Giving in Grace initiative at St Wilfrid’s, whilst Tony Service looks forward to the New Year and Methodism in January. Sheila Newsome asks for help in tracking down Frederick Harrison, and the Brayton Mothers Union sign up Revd. Pete, and eat mince pies. Again.
I’m also very happy to reproduce the Diocese of York article on the excellent Wellbeing CafĂ© that is held each Monday at St Wilfrid’s Parish Hall. Many thanks to the Diocese for their kind permission. There is also a brief article on the re-commissioning of the St Wilfrid’s Ministry Team, and the Autumn/Christmas Fairs are remembered in photographs.

December Connected

The December edition of Connected is available to download.

This month Revd. Glenda urges us to use Advent as preparation for Christmas by sharing with those who find it a struggle to survive. Tony Service looks forward to Christmas and Roger Sowden shares some fantastic pictures of St Wilfrid’s during winter. Charlotte Watson highlights a forthcoming ‘The Voice’ concert in Selby Abbey, whilst Kathryn Pritchard explains about the Operation Christmas Child initiative; a very worthwhile use for the humble shoebox. 

I was sent a load of images of the Saints & Superheroes evening at Brayton Primary School which I am pleased to include this month - it looked like great fun and I rather wish that I had gone along. Mrs Clarke has a go at ‘incorporating as many Songs from the Shows titles in her Mother’s Union piece as possible’, and I report on the St Wilfrid’s Choir as it commences its preparations for Christmas. There is also an online audio file of the Choir’s rendition of Coventry Carol for you to enjoy. 

As always the on-line version is free to download, and feel free to share it with your friends and family. Details of subscribing to the print version, should you prefer a printed copy, can be found in the on-line magazine on page 3. A direct link to the magazine is included below for your convenience. Click on the link and it should (fingers crossed!) load the magazine directly.

If you would like to see the earlier editions they can be found on the Connected page of the St Wilfrid's website. A link to this page is included below.
