I can’t believe it has been almost a year since I moved up here to Sheffield. Not only is it scary how fast the time is going, but there is also the daunting realisation that in a year from now, all being well, I will be heading down to London for my ordination as a presbyter of the Methodist Church at our annual Conference.
The latest edition of the newsletter is now available, providing a downloadable source of information, detailing news from around the Beacon, and events coming up in the next month or two.
WORSHIP EVERY SUNDAY THROUGHOUT TERM TIME, 7PM AT BROOMHILL METHODIST CHURCH
The Junction is a Christian worship event for students and young adults, with opportunity to reflect, discuss, grow, learn, share and be. We come together to worship God, develop our discipleship and participate in the life of the Body of Christ.

This June has been a busy but good month. The regular groups are continuing to go well, numbers have remained fairly consistent even though we have hit holiday season but most importantly the relationships being built between the church, community and families are strengthening and growing.
It’s been great to be able to have good enough weather to hold a few “Ice Cold Thursdays” (where we serve ice cream and ice pops as well as toast) at Tea and Toast over the last month. Numbers have gone down slightly as the older pupils who were studying for their GCSE’s and A Levels have now finished their school year. We are left with the younger members of Tea and Toast who are enjoying being the oldest ones for a few weeks! We have a couple of Tea and Toast Xtra’s booked in before the end of the school term and I am looking at how we can further develop the work of Tea and Toast in September.
This month sees the start of our new monthly lunch and discussion event at Broomhill. Sunday Plus starts with a simple meal (e.g. bread, soup, cheese, fruit) and provides opportunity to chat and build relationships, welcoming both students and non-students of all ages. Each month we invite the preacher to provide questions based around the themes of the morning service that can be used for discussion, allowing us to further engage with God's Word and get more out of the Sunday service.
