Bible Study a route to Get Closer to the Lord

God knows our desire to be known and to be loved! He made us for companionship. Join the Bible Study Group 10:30 on Thursday morning fortnightly at All Saints Annexe. Read Bible passages with friends about friendship and how if chosen right, our friends can be the greatest source of love, healing, joy, and encouragement. We study different themes within the bible and enjoy each others fellowship.

OPEN the BOOK   

 

This project offers primary school children an opportunity to hear the major stories of the Bible, presented chronologically or thematically, during the school year.

It is given by a team of Christians from the benefice, who present the stories during assembly or collective worship. We have a team of 10 volunteers for our first project which will began in September 2019 at Great Smeaton Primary School. 

 

Benefice of the Wiske is a group of 5 churches, located in the NE corner of the Diocese of Leeds. Our Benefice comprises several small villages and hamlets near the River Wiske which are largely rural in character, but are also commuter villages, as agriculture, though still important, no longer employs many people and most work in Northallerton, Darlington or Teesside. The population has a high percentage of retired people. There is a Church of England (VC) Primary School in East Cowton and primary schools in Great Smeaton, North Cowton and Appleton Wiske. A Youth Group meets every other Friday during term time at All Saints. The Benefice has a Priest in Charge, supported by retired priests and lay readers.
