THE SERVICES AT THE CROSS

#


27th April, 2019.


We gathered on Good Friday at the gaunt, bare cross on the Market Green for the annual service arranged by Churches Together in Easingwold and District (CTED), organized this year by Easingwold Methodist Church. After a welcome from Rev. Elizabeth Cushion, we joined together in singing the favourite hymn “Lift High the Cross”. Opening prayers were led by Rev. Fr James Callaghan, O.S.B., followed by a reading of the crucifixion story from St Luke, by Janet Crane from the Community Church, and the hymn “There is a Green Hill”. In her reflection, Elizabeth noted that, in recent times, shops have been promoting their pre-Christmas trade with so-called ‘Black Fridays’, benefitting the shoppers, but also the retailers, hoping their accounts turn from red to black! Today is also a strangely named day: Good Friday could easily be called Black Friday, the day when we remember Jesus crucified, when evil triumphed and even the sky turned black....

ETAFC U16’s: 11 years come to an end, but what a journey it has been!

#


27th April, 2019.


Back in 2007 a new cohort of players joined ETAFC, aged 4 and with very little football experience they were initially coached by the infamous ‘Mr.B’. As U5’s the players were soon introduced to competitive fixtures when they were invited to join the U6 team, lead by Clive Rhodes. The U5’s made their match debuts in January 2008. The following season Danny Gath had his arm twisted to become lead coach of the U6’s, soon followed by Aisha Hepton. This was to be the start of an eleven year partnership with one goal in mind: to develop young footballers to become the best they could be! Over the next two seasons the squad continued to grow, and regular friendly matches were arranged. In 2010 the squad had now grown massively and as U8’s they would enter their first season of friendlies organized by the Mitchell League....

An Eggciting Time Was Had By All!

#


27th April, 2019.


Easingwold Methodist Church Kids Club held a wonderful Easter activity day last week. The children watched a DVD telling the Easter story from Palm Sunday through to Easter Day.

We all helped to paint a picture of the Last Supper which surely rivals Leonardo’s masterpiece – this one, however is on display in our church....

Best Cancelled Event Ever!

#


20th April, 2019.


When an event gets cancelled that’s usually the end of it – but not here in Easingwold! The Squires Egg Run was cancelled at the start of last week and it was a bit of a blow to all involved, but instead of accepting this fate the businesses in Easingwold decided to pull off their own event and launched Easingwold’s Sunday Fun’Day to raise funds for Yorkshire Air Ambulance. There was an egg hunt for the kids (and big kids), music, raffle, food galore, coffee and much more – not the mention the hundreds of bikes, scooters and trikes filling up the market place....
