The Light Shines John 1:5 – starting on Black Friday (27th November) the Christian leaders would like to do a Christmas version of an event being used in Sheffield which will bring Jesus’ light to every street in Harrogate. Click this link to see the video which explains the idea perfectly. “ The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” Households are invited to register their window on a map, hosted by the Hub, where we can create a trail of light for people to follow.  If interested, please contact Harrogate Hub:

Funerals - The circuit team still need more people to form a team of ‘Circuit Vergers’ (stewards) for crematorium style funeral services taking place at Trinity & Woodlands.  The requirements are either a morning or an afternoon shift.  There would be a financial payment as a steward at a slightly different rate to the normal across the circuit.  We would need two people per shift to act as Track and Trace, wiping down high contact points, sound etc.  If you can help please let Juliana know by Tuesday 27th October as we hope to start 1st November. 

Beetle Drive on Zoom, - Park Grove are hosting a Beetle Drive to raise funds for Women’s Refuge on 7th November at 7pm. We will be gathering on zoom and you’ll require a dice, a pen and paper. (Dice can be purchased from Grace for an exorbitant donation!) we are suggesting £5 donation per player, which can be sent to Margaret Grant. Book in with Grace:         

Cogs Creative writers -  A new book is available, ‘Love, Fear & Faith in a time of Covid’.  

COPIES can be obtained from:

Jeanette Mowat (01423 867511)          

or Hilary Hughes (01423 864002)                

Each book costs £4.50 (£5 if posted) £1 from each sale will go to support the ongoing work of Gracious Street Methodist Church.
