The new cafe called Outside the Box is now open for business, or at least it will be at the weekend. If you don’t know where it is there’s a clue in the title.
Outside the Box opened last weekend and will be open again this weekend. It will be great to support the newly opened community cafe simply by being there. If you haven’t seen it yet it’s a creat space and there’s free Wi-Fi I am told.
And here’s what you may have missed last weekend.
This from The Guardian Witness. CTI Churches may wish to make a contribution.
Who are the Christians in Britain today? On any given Sunday, there will be at least 2.5m people in churches of various sorts, but each congregation tends to be an island with little contact with others. So, we want you to share your photographs and videos of your own congregations, everywhere from converted units on an industrial estate to magnificent medieval cathedrals.
The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, has announced that the Dioceses Commission Draft Reorganisation Scheme for the Dioceses of Bradford, Ripon & Leeds, and Wakefield will be put to General Synod in July.
Bishop Nick Baines says, ”I am pleased that the Archbishop is asking the wider church through the General Synod to debate this matter. It is vital that the church has vision and can handle wise change.”
The proposal is that there would be a single diocese for West Yorkshire and the Dales made up of five areas (Bradford, Huddersfield, Leeds, Ripon and Wakefield), each with their own area bishop. The Diocesan Bishop would be the Bishop of Leeds (and also the area bishop for Leeds). All three cathedrals would be retained on an equal basis (each with distinctive missional strategies).
Choral classics come to St. Margaret’s with Bradford Festival Choral Society.
There’s something for everyone in this programme packed with great tunes, thrilling drama and beautiful calm.
Favourite movements including Zadok the Priest, Hallelujah and excerpts from Mozart’s famous Requiem are contrasted with gems from Monteverdi, George Shearing and Tony Hewitt Jones. The concert ends in style with numbers from Carmina Burana, and Verdi’s Anvil Chorus and the Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves.
