This summer we've said goodbye to the Stoddart family as they embark on a new journey of faith in York.
And we're off on a new Christian journey ourselves, as we prepare for Godly Play in Ryton.
On Tuesday evening, August 22nd you can find out more about this wonderful new way to worship, along with the resources we'll be using, like those in this photo. 

Hoiday club off to a chilly start!

The children at this year's holiday club have a special guest with them - a polar explorer!

Hm, he'll need something warmer on his feet with all that ice...

Whitby here we come!

We've transformed our worship space into a place for Godly Play!

Take a look at the album in our Photo Gallery to see what wonderful resources we'll be using.

What is Godly Play?

It's an opportunity, to discover God through story, wondering and reflection.

It's a movement to influence the Churches’ support of spiritually rich practices with children and adults.

What is Godly Play @Ryton?

All of the above, and much more, as well as a form of explorative worship for all ages.

When can we experience Godly Play?

Starting on 17th September 2017, the third Sunday of every month will be a time for Godly Play.

Come and join us!

Happy Easter! 

Our 10.30 family service was full of joy and fun, including balloons! Janet, our minister, reminded us of the transformation in Mary Magdalene's feelings, from empty despair to happiness brimming over, as she spread the good news of Jesus' resurrection. Here are some pictures from the service.
