Come and See is the Northern Bishops’ Mission to the Diocese of York, led by the Archbishop of York taking place from
12th to 15th March 2020.
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.
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.’
Since 2015, Bishops and their teams from the Northern Province of The Church of England, led by the Archbishop of York, have been sowing the seeds of the Gospel and encouraging people to learn more about the Christian faith.Come and See will be the eighth Bishops’ Mission weekend.
Bishop Sarah Clark who is the Bishop of Jarrow is coming to Scarborough Deanery and will bring with her a group of 5 people both clergy, and lay people. They are guests but are here to help and be part of the Mission and will be with us from Thursday evening until Sunday lunchtime.
Every Parish across the Deanery have been encouraged to be involved, not necessarily to start something new but to building on the good things that are already happening. Just some of the events happening in the North Scarborough Group, Men’s Breakfast, Messy Church, Knit and Natter, coffee mornings although there are new things planned like the Variety Concert and the Instant Choir in the Brunswick Centre, Sole to Soul Walking Group.
Mission is not just for us but for us to Share the Good News of Jesus through inviting those who not know more of Jesus Christ to Come and See and hear the Good News. There will be notification of all the events happening in the Northern Group and also other events in the Deanery. Invitations will be available for you to personally invite your friends, family, work and social friends to come with you to an event.
