The Autumn District Synod this year will be incorporated into a new event – “Flourish”. This is a weekend event in Scarborough from 7.30pm on Friday 18th October to 1.00pm on Sunday 20th for all Churches and Circuits to get together for fellowship and worship.

 A varied programme will include opportunities to stretch your mind, develop your spirituality, increase your understanding of church, express your creative side, and, have fun.

 A crèche and children’s programme will be offered on Saturday morning and evening, and a youth stream will run across the whole weekend. The main worship event, on Saturday evening, will be led by acclaimed worship leader Lou Fellingham and the main speaker will be David Wilkinson (renowned astrophysicist and theologian).

Various workshops will be available on the Saturday, one of which will be led by Roy Searle and members of the Northumbria Community, who will also be leading one of the worship options on the Sunday morning.  More details will be released as and when confirmed.

Groups from Circuits are being encouraged to travel and stay together. In order to help facilitate this, Sue Jakeman has been appointed as our ‘Circuit Champion’ If you intend to come on the weekend or would like more information, please contact Sue Jakeman on 01937 842156 or email: as soon as possible.
