West Yorkshire Churches / Tour de France
The Churches of West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire celebrated Le Tour in style: Community, Hospitality, Velocité!
Involved were St Philip's Birchencliffe, Holy Trinity Skipton, Christ Church Harrogate and Moortown St John, Hall Bower Sunday School, Holy Trinity South Crosland, Newsome South Methodist Church, Netherton Methodist Church, St Paul Armitage Bridge and St John Newsome - working together with amazing effect, from bacon-butties to clearing up.
They handed out over 1500 free 'Water of life' bottles. Local Methodist minister John Hayes said, "as local church communities we are delighted to offer this as a refreshing gift. We are all followers of Jesus, who was once treated to refreshing water when he was tired and thirsty in a strange land."
