St Wilfrid's Summer Fair

The 2018 St Wilfrid's Summer Fair will be held next Saturday, 23rd June, on Brayton Village Green from 2:00-4:00pm.
Come along and experience the fantastic stalls including books, plants, tombola, nearly new toys, the ever popular café & refreshments, and entertainments. Sunny warm weather has been pre-booked* and the England v Panama world cup game moved to the Sunday at great expense to avoid any clash with the Fair!
There will be a short fun Service at the close of the Fair.
See you there!

(* probably... The Fair will be held in the Primary School in the unlikely event that the weather is unkind to us.)

June Connected

In the June Connected Revd. Peter Barnett looks at the increasing levels of turmoil in the world, and Tony Service reports on Methodist News and remembers Ann Wilson who has sadly died.

I report on a recent Family Service at St Wilfrid’s, and consider the role of Children in Church today. Thorpe WI looks forward to celebrating 10 years in existence; and St Wilfrid’s has its collective fingers crossed for the 23rd June when it hosts the 2018 Summer Fair. The Brayton MU remembers its Wave of Prayer, and also long serving member Marion Baillie who died suddenly in May.

Finally the St Wilfrid’s Parish walk at St Aidan’s RSPB reserve is remembered, and in the online edition we welcome the return of David Michell’s gardening page.

May Connected

The May edition of Connected is available to download or view online. In this edition Revd. Pete Watson looks back over the past year at St Wilfrid’s in the light of John 1:43-51 to reflect on the mission and ministry in the Parish, to look forward to the year ahead.

Tony Service ponders the month of May, whilst the Brayton Mothers Union remembers Tea and Cake in the Bar Convent in York. Gill Guilliat reports on her successful sugarcraft classes held in the St Wilfrid’s Parish Hall every month. It is events such as these, often hidden within the warp and weft of everyday life that help bind society together.

Claire Hodgson reports on the forthcoming Mental Health Awareness Week (14th to 20th May) and also shares the outcomes of the Leading Your Church into Growth conference held earlier this year. No doubt this will feature again on these pages in the near future. I report on the St Francis Easter Fair, which was great fun, and also some of the Easter Activities that I managed to attend at St Wilfrid’s.

Finally Revd. Pete recalls the life of Edith Wraithmell (nee Holmes) who had an association with St Wilfrid’s stretching back 103 years. Amazing.

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.
