There are no Sunday services at Burniston next week (23 April) as we are all invited to join ECG at the Spa for their Sunday morning celebration. See below from the ECG newsletter:
“On the subject of ten years ECG are holding a special Celebration on Sunday morning to mark the tenth birthday and to look forward to the next ten years. This will be a free event and all are welcome so, if you are able to join us in the Grand Hall, Scarborough Spa at
10.00 11.00 am, Sunday 23rd April you will be most welcome.

What is ECG all about?
Quite simply, ECG is about bringing our community together. Each year we ask people of all ages to join us as we share in a five-day celebration of fellowship, worship and teaching.
Although many of our speakers and delegates are from a Methodist background, we do not choose guests on the basis of their denomination. Instead, we invite those who we feel offer real insights into Christian teaching and who can help us to deliver what always proves to be an interesting, varied and family-friendly programme.
Each day, visitors to ECG can take part in morning Bible study, choose from different seminar streams and participate in lively discussions. Our ever-popular fringe day and evening programme includes drama, music, comedy and film.
A range of specially designed activities ensures that our younger visitors don’t miss out either. Creche facilities are available for babies, while age-specific groups run by our highly-skilled youth workers makes this an event for everyone.

New Wine Day Conference led by Bishop Graham Dow
Burniston Methodist Church is proud to be hosting a New Wine day conference titled “Life in the Spirit”, which will be led by Bishop Graham Dow (retired Bishop of Carlisle).

- How do we grow in the Spirit?
- What does the ‘Fellowship of the Holy Spirit’ mean?
It will be a day of worship, prayer, teaching and fellowship.
The event is intended for Christians from any church in the Scarborough area. New Wine is a non-denominational organisation that works with many different types of churches. So, regardless of which church you might be connected with, if you want to learn more about Life in the Spirit, then this event is for you.

*About New Wine*
New Wine’s vision is to see the nation changed through Christians experiencing the joy of worshipping God, the freedom of following Jesus, and the power of being filled with the Spirit. To see churches renewed, strengthened and planted, living out the word of God in every aspect of life, serving God by reaching the lost, broken and poor, and demonstrating the good news of the Kingdom of God to all.

Crafts – games – activities – storytelling – celebration – meal
It’s lovely to share in the notices as a church family and feel encouraged by all that’s going on and all that God is doing. Sometimes there is a lot to get through though, so we’ve decided to try something new. From February we will start the notices for Sunday@11 at 10.55, and continue worship with a prayer at 11 o’clock.
We would encourage everyone to submit written notices to Amy before 8pm on the Thursday, and if there are any late notices or anything you feel needs emphasising please speak to the worship leader or steward before 10.55 on the Sunday. Any additional notices for the 9.30 service need to go to the steward in advance.
One more thing – the coffee hatch will close at 10.55, so make sure you’re in good time to not miss out on tea, coffee and cake!
