‘Come and See’ Mission
The Northern Bishops’ Mission to the Diocese of York,
12-15 March 2020
The next day John again was standing with two of his disciples,
and as he watched Jesus walk by,
he exclaimed, ‘Look, here is the Lamb of God!’
The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus.
When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them,
‘What are you looking for?’
They said to him, ‘Rabbi’ (which translated means Teacher), ‘where are you staying?’
He said to them,
‘Come and see.’
‘Come and See’ is an opportunity for us to unite in local mission and evangelism: we pray, we invite, we celebrate and we offer
hospitality, all in the power of the Holy Spirit, telling the Good News of Jesus Christ. Archbishop Sentamu, together with the
Bishops of the Northern Province and their teams, will be working in our Diocese from Thursday to Sunday, 12-15 March 2020.
We anticipate being joined by about 30 Bishops each with a small team of lay people, children and youth workers and clergy.
Each Bishop will be allocated to a deanery. In our Deanery of Mowbray, we will be joined by Bishop Paul Bayes (of Liverpool) and
Bishop John Flack and their teams.
So what is being planned?
In our benefice we are looking at:
Lent Lunch at Topcliffe Village Hall on Friday 13th from 12.00noon-1.00pm
Charlie Chuck’s Guide to the Universe at Baldersby St James church on Friday 13th at 7.00pm
Open Church at Skipton-on-Swale church on Saturday 14th March, 10.00-12.00noon
Messy Church at Baldersby St James church on Saturday 14th March, 2.00-4.00pm
Messy Church at Dalton church on Sunday 15th March, 2.00-4.00pm
The idea is that these are events that we can invite people to, so that together in the name of Christ we can build
