My first home was a village near Whitby where from a few weeks old my parents took me to the Methodist Chapel.

I was joined later by my sister and brother. I did lots of jobs as our three sons grew up - from farming with my father to working in a post office and becoming a County Youth Leader. I began leading worship at the tender age of fourteen and felt God calling me to the ministry of Word and Sacrament. By the time my youngest son was born I had started to Candidate for the Methodist Ministry. I trained at the Wesley Study Centre in Durham as one of a group of ' Guinea Pigs' training non-residentially and alongside our full -time work. During this time I became a Lay-Pastoral Assistant, working for three years in the Whitby Circuit. I served for ten years in the Ryedale Circuit at Helmsley and then a further five years as Superintendant. I came to serve in the Middlesbrough and Eston Circuit seven years ago. It is my honour to work with the people of Stainton, Marton and Nunthorpe as  well as being Chaplin to the Methodist Asylum Project.

Dear friends,

We are Easter People!

In these next few weeks, with the whole Church throughout the world, we will celebrate the most amazing, grace filled events in history.

The passion, suffering and death of Jesus will focus our minds throughout Lent and Holy Week on how, through Jesus' death on the cross, the power of evil and death were defeated.

Then, with the dawning of Easter Day we join our voices with millions of other Christians in the refrain:

Christ the Lord is Risen today, Hallelujah!'

Our faith is built on nothing less.

Using the words, 'Easter People,' reminds me of the events organized some years ago by Rev Rob Frost, and the title has remained. Ever since that first Easter Day, the followers of Jesus have witnessed his living presence in their lives and we have been Easter People! So how do we know and live this risen life?

So as we celebrate Easter again this year, let's show that we are Easter People;

not only on Easter Day but in our Worship week by week, in our service, day by day. In our decision making, and in our conversations, in fact in every aspect of our lives.

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

With sincere Love,


 I am Susan Greenwood, minister of Nunthorpe Methodist church for the last 10 years.

I feel it's been a privilege to be part of the loving and caring church family here at Nunthorpe.

The family is made up of women and men, boys and girls of all ages who worship, witness and enjoy the Christian life together. Every one is welcome to be part of our church family.

Please come along and share with us as we all grow closer to Jesus as his followers. We have many activities in addition to worship including House Groups, Bible Studies, Prayer and Singing groups. So please come along either to worship or to one of our groups or if you prefer you can contact me at
