Saturday 27th June: 1 Minister. 2 Saddles. 6 Chapels. 25 Miles!
Each year, Great Ayton Methodist Church supports a different charity. In 2020, it's Teesside Hospice. Our overall church target is £7000! We'd love to make a massive contribution to that amount through this tandem ride (as some events have not been possible due to Covid-19).
So, I will be embarking on a tandem-tastic tour of all six chapels in the Stokesley Methodist Circuit on Saturday 27th June. It's a tandem ride so I need to take somebody with me! — but as I can't actually ride a bike on my own anyway, I will be doing this with my fabbo husband Andy.
This ride is also a chance for me to say cheerio and thank you for all your love and support to us for the past thirteen years, because we will be moving to Sheffield Circuit later this summer.
We will be posting details of the times that we'll be cycling past the chapels and through the villages, so watch this space. If you want to give us a wave from your window, that's great! But in the meantime, please sponsor and support us for Teesside Hospice!

11am: Great Ayton bridge. Easby Lane, Great Ayton. 11:15am: Easby Chapel. 11:35am: Ingleby Greenhow. 12pm: Great Broughton crossroads. Kirkby & Great Busby. 12:15pm: Carlton Chapel. 12:35pm: Faceby.

To support the national lockdown the decision has been made to close all churches in the Stokesley Circuit. As we have been doing for the past nine months, we continue to offer weekly online worship.
