The Rector’s Letter Dear Friends, Every year the Church Wardens are sworn into Office for the following year by the Archdeacon at a service called The Visitation. During the service the Archdeacon gives his ‘charge’ which is his address of encouragement and also the list of things which the Wardens should be doing. In the Visitation Charge recently the Archdeacon mentioned a book which I remember reading and so when I got home took it down from the shelf, blew the dust from it and flicked through it. The book is called “The New Reformation?” Skimming through the pages I found this: “A Reformation presupposes that the Church can be reformed and a positive answer given to the question, ‘can these bones live?’ here is much from within the organized Church, and more from those observing outside to raise the question: ‘Can it possibly be the carrier of the new life for the new age?’ Is the Church not an archaic and well protected institution for the preservation of something irrelevant? It is so dug in, it will not disappear overnight, but will it be the channel of the Spirit?’ …..It does not surprise us that modern people whether as industrial worker or intellectual is deeply estranged from the Church” That passage is one which many of the clergy and leaders of the church have to reflect upon more and more. The passage boils down to asking “Is the Church old fashioned and does it still have anything to say to the world today?” What is so interesting is the fact that Bishop John Robinson wrote the book The New Reformation? in 1963. Since then many, many things have changed but in reading that short passage we see that nothing seems to have changed either. (continued on page 4) 3


June 2013 (continued from page 3) There are all sorts of attempts made to make the church relevant and exciting to people and vast amounts have been written about Fresh Expressions of Church, but the one thing which remains fixed is our purpose of being part of the Church and that is we are called to be a worshipping community but our worship is shown not only in what we say and sing inside but also in what we do on the outside. People who are not sure what the Church has to say to them or those who think it is old fashioned and irrelevant see us before they see God and so it is up to us to make God known and God wanted in the world. We make the Church relevant by not losing sight of how it came into being. The Church is our response to God’s humility in giving us Jesus and so we in humility turn back to him by giving ourselves in service to his people. With my love and prayers,

WELCOME TO OUR NEW DEACON. At the end of the month we say ‘Welcome’ to Father Kevin Greaves who will be coming to work with us. Fr. Kevin will be ordained deacon in the Cathedral on June 29th by the Bishop of Wakefield. A deacon is a servant, he assists the priest. Usually Deacons at the end of their first year go on to be ordained priest. The significant feature of a deacon’s ministry which people tend to notice is that they cannot give blessings so are unable to celebrate Communion, hear confessions and would not usually conduct marriages because each of those involves a form of blessing. What they do is assist in the Mass by reading the Gospel, getting the altar ready, they can baptize and conduct funeral services. (continued on page 6) 4

June 2013 (continued from page 4) We treat being a deacon a bit like a probationary year or an apprenticeship getting ready for the real thing but some people feel as though they are called to being a permanent deacon and don’t go on to be ordained priest. Fr. Kevin is being ordained deacon in the hope that he will become a priest next year. Deacons dress like priests in church more or less except they wear their stole over their left shoulder and tied and in the mass wear a vestment called a dalmatic which is similar to what the priest wears but tends to be more rectangular in shape. The arrangements are slightly different for Fr. Kevin in that for a little while he will be living in South Elmsall and will be travelling through to us, so he won’t be nipping home between appointments, he will use the office upstairs in the parish rooms as a base. It would be really helpful and a great act of kindness if people could invite him round for a sandwich at lunch time, going back home would just not be practical for him. I know that you will make Fr. Kevin welcome. It is an exciting time but it is also quite a scary time as both deacon and parish (and Rector) settle down and form new relationships but it is also a time of great blessing and a massive privilege to be entrusted in the formation of a new priest.

We have 8 tickets for people to be present at the ordination which is two for each church, if you would like to be present at the ordination would you please contact Fr Michael.

HOW A GARDEN CAN HELP THE HOMELESS A city centre church garden project has won a national award this Spring for its work in turning around the lives of homeless people. St John’s Church Gardens in Waterloo (Southwark Diocese) is run by St Mungo’s Putting Down Roots project and encourages homeless people to work in the grounds with qualified horticultural trainers. It is one of five sites across London tended by the group. Bishop James Newcome, lead bishop on healthcare issues, visited the project as part of the national Gardening Against the Odds awards. Now he is urging churches across the country to consider whether they could link up with similar charitable projects, using their land. Putting Down Roots gardener trainer, Jeff Morgan, who himself has experienced homelessness, said: “Our clients give hours of their time back to their neighbourhood, making the gardens a lovely space for the local community to really enjoy. Putting Down Roots has been working with homeless men and women in London for over ten years helping people to develop skills and move into further training or employment.” Gardening Against the Odds awards are sponsored by the Conservation Foundation http://www.conservationfoundation.co.uk/

WHO PRAYS TODAY? Research by the Church of England has found that six out of seven people still believe that prayers can be answered, despite a dramatic drop in formal religious observance in the UK. Only one in seven people insist that they would never resort to prayer. Teenagers are less likely to reject prayer than their parents - with only 9% of 18-24 year-olds saying they would never pray, compared with 17% of those in their late 50s. The proportion of people in England and Wales who classify themselves as "Christian" in 2011 fell to 59%, from 72% in 2001. When asked what they would pray for 31% said peace in the world; 27% said an end to poverty and for family members, with only 15% mentioning praying for guidance or healing for themselves. 7

June 2013 The Rev Dr Gary Bowness continues his tongue-in-cheek letters from ‘Uncle Eustace’…

BEWARE THE CHURCH MICROPHONE The Rectory St. James the Least My dear Nephew Darren Despite my assurances that it was unnecessary, it was kind of you to loan us your sound equipment, so we could experience the advantages of using radio microphones in church. Your assurance that everyone would then be able to hear with absolute clarity seemed to miss the point that everyone does not necessarily want to do so. I have no doubt that members of your congregation hang on to your every word, eager to make sure you remain theologically sound, but for us, those who had blissfully slumbered throughout my sermons for the last 30 years found themselves unable to filter out a single syllable. Colonel Wainwright decided to change the start of his Bible readings from the customary “Here beginneth..” to “Testing, Testing” before giving the microphone a good biff, which made the verger dash outside to check if yet another mediaeval gargoyle had fallen from the roof. Also, forgetting that microphones pick up asides just as effectively, his own comment to his wife in the front pew “I thought I read that rather well” did nothing for the pride he has always cherished for his humility. I was also not convinced that the sixteenth century workmen who had devoted the greater part of their lives reverently carving the Lady Chapel altar had intended it to support an electronic console that would have looked more at home in an aeroplane cockpit. (continued on page 11) 10


June 2013 (Continued from page 10) However, the event which finally decided us against microphones came about an hour after the service. Several of the choir boys had crept back into the church and decided to improvise a rock concert with their guitars and the mikes turned up full blast. The church exploded in a perfect cacophony of noise which panicked a horse and rider going by. The horse bolted down the road, which caused two cars two veer violently to avoid it. One car ended up in a pond, the other in a field, having ripped off a great deal of old fencing. Whoever fixed the fencing failed and later that night all 43 cows in the field escaped, and ended up in the Colonel’s front flower-filled front garden, where they spent a comfortable night slicing his velvet turf with their sharp cleats, and chomping everything in sight. Your loving uncle, Eustace

THE VIOLENCE IN SYRIA A recent Joint statement from The Archbishops of Canterbury and Westminster, Justin Welby and Vincent Nichols, concerning the ongoing violence in Syria: Since the very first days of the Syrian conflict in March 2011, we have prayed as we watched in horror and sorrow the escalating violence that has rent this country apart. We have grieved with all Syrians with the families of each and every human life lost and with all communities whose neighbourhoods and livelihoods have suffered from escalating and pervasive violence. And ... our prayers also go with the ancient communities of our Christian brothers and sisters in Syria. The (recent) kidnapping of two Metropolitan bishops of Aleppo, Mar Gregorios Ibrahim of the Syriac Orthodox Church and Paul Yazigi of the Greek Orthodox Church of Antioch, and the killing of their driver while they were carrying out a humanitarian mission, is another telling sign of the terrible circumstances that continue to engulf all Syrians. We unreservedly support these Christian communities, rooted in and attached to the biblical lands, despite the many hardships. We respond to the call from the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and all the East, and the Syriac Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and all the East, urging churches worldwide to remain steadfast in the face of challenging realities and to bear witness to their faith in the power of love in this world. We both continue to pray for a political solution to this tragic conflict that would stem the terrible violence and also empower all Syrians with their fundamental and inalienable freedoms. We also call for urgent humanitarian aid to reach all who are suffering. We pray that Syria can recapture its tradition of tolerance, rooted in faith and respect for faiths living side by side. + Justin Welby + Vincent Nichols 13

PUZZLES WORDSEARCH On 24 June the Church remembers the birth of John the Baptist. (Luke 1) In the days when Herod was king of Judea, there was a priest named Zechariah who served in the temple. One day the angel Gabriel appeared to him. Gabriel said that Elizabeth, Zechariah’s barren, elderly wife, would give birth to a son who would have a unique role in history. Zechariah did not cope very well with the news: he laughed in disbelief. Nevertheless, a baby was born: John, whose amazing role in life was to announce the coming of the Messiah: “he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God” (Lk 1:16) John’s role was unique, but all over the world Christians today are in ministry for exactly the same purpose: “...to make ready for the Lord a people prepared”.

A SAINT FOR JUNE—ST ALBAN (22ND JUNE) Saint Alban was the first British Christian Martyr. One of three saints remembered from Roman Britain, Alban is one of three martyrs along with Julius and Aaron. Within our Church Calendar June 22nd is set aside as the day on which we remember St Alban. He is honoured in the Anglican Communion, the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church Alban’s date of birth remains unknown and there is some dispute over his date of death. Depending on which you read there are choices between 22 June 209, c.251 or 304. The major shrine is the Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban in the city of the same name. Alban is described as having been a pagan living in Verulamium (now St Albans), who converted to Christianity, and was beheaded on a hill above the Roman settlement of Verulamium. St Albans Abbey was later founded near this site. King Offa of Mercia established a monastery there about the year 793, and in the Middle Ages, St Albans ranked as the premier Abbey in England. The great Norman abbey church, begun in 1077, now serves as the cathedral of the diocese of St Albans, established in 1877. In a chapel east of the choir and high altar, there are remains of the fourteenth century marble shrine of St Alban. In 2002 a shoulder blade, believed to be a relic of St Alban, was presented to ST Albans Cathedral and placed inside the saint’s restored 13th-century shrine. The bone was given by the Church of St Pantaleon in Cologne, Germany. St Pantaleon’ s, like St Albans Cathedral a former Benedictine abbey church that had a shrine dedicated to St Alban. A few years ago some Church of England clergy suggested that Alban should replace St George as patron saint of England.

ANNUAL GENERAL PAROCHIAL MEETING A brief report from the meeting. PCC: The PCC is made up with up to 5 representatives from each church plus a number of Officials who are ex-officio. The new church representatives on the PCC are as follows:Castleford: Joan Bennett, Margaret Clowes, Arnold Randall, Jean Randall & Hilary Wilkes. Hightown: Lilian Ashman, Susan Fletcher, Jane Harvey & Richard Tomkins. St Paul’s: Karen Ferrier, Dawn Heyworth, Pamela Jackson, Colin Maw & Mavis Whitehead. St Michael’s: Gwen Smales, Valerie Thresh, Trevor Wainwright & Sylvia Wilson. In his report the Rector mentioned that of the 12706 parishes in the Church of England Castleford is 11,177th Poorest. This means there 1529 poorer parishes. There are still plans to get a food bank up and running in the town but some of the enthusiasm has been lost due to a change of minister at one of the contributing churches. With the money from the Sale of St James’ the PCC had taken the step of appointing a Family and Children’s worker. Some Parent & Toddler Groups have been started but with the weather and Easter it has taken time to get into its stride. This is something for the long haul and is intended to get the church engaged with the community. Houses have already been built on the land where St James’ stood. For services such as weddings and funerals the changes to the fees structure saw some prices set nationally rising more than those set locally. No-one heard anyone say they weren't having a service in church because of the cost. Clergy fees go to the Diocese. Last year over £14,000 worth of fees were paid over from weddings and funerals taken in the parish. One thing that the Team does will is the Annual Memorial Service with time for a chat afterwards. The church now visits the following schools: Park Juniors, Three Lane Ends, Glasshoughton Infants, Smawthorne Henry Moore Primary & Wheldon Infants.

“GOOD NEWS IN A NUTSHELL, COSMOS IN A HASHTAG” Almost six million people were reached by the Church of England’s (@c_of_e) Easter 2013 Twitter campaign. Recently released figures from Twitter showed a cumulative reach of 5.8m users from the 8,527 tweets sent over the Easter period, from Good Friday to Easter Day, using the hashtag #EverythingChanges. Devised by the Church of England’s Communications office with a group of Christian tweeters and bloggers, the aim of the campaign sought to highlight the Christian meaning of Easter on the social media network. Tweets were sent from across the country with a marked tone of solemnity and sorrow in tweets on Good Friday and peaking on Easter Day with tweets celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Vicky Beeching (@vickybeeching) - Research Fellow in Internet ethics at St John’s College Durham said: "The #everythingchanges hashtag was another great example of the Church engaging proactively with the digital sphere. To get a new 'digital generation' to feel welcome in Church and to hear the Christian message, using social media is crucial. Social media is a medium where all of life is lived; meaningful messages can be communicated and the Church is boldly embracing the digital world in these campaigns.” The Rt. Revd. Dr Graham Kings, Bishop of Sherborne (@BishopSherborne) said: “#everythingchanges focuses the vast scope of the cross and resurrection. It is more than Jesus being killed and raised, or my whole life being changed. It is as big as the whole universe beginning to be transformed. Good news in a nutshell. Cosmos in a hashtag.”

Castleford All Saints Church Hall If anyone cares to take a look at the stone plaque on the east wall of the Church Hall at Castleford All Saints they will see that it commemorates the stone’s laying on the 7th June 1913 by the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, the Right Honourable C E Hobhouse MP. So that means that this month the Hall is one hundred years old. The Hall has seen lots of comings and goings during that time. As history shows us, in the year following its opening the world would be thrown into a great deal of turmoil on the out break of the First World War, no doubt the hall would be put to a great deal of use during those dark days. The Rector at the time of the building was William Hewett MA who had arrived at Castleford in 1912. By the time that the next Rector, John Eastwood, arrived in 1925, thirteen years later, the cost of the building remained unpaid. I was made aware of this fact in a poem written by my maternal Grandfather Fred Pincher in 1927, the poem entitled The Church Rooms Debt starts as follows :We are going to have a Whist Drive I want you all to know So roll up in your dozens And help us run the show. We’re going to have a dance as well Fancy Dress we have agreed So hunt up all your costumes And other things you’ll need. There are several more verses before reaching the final verse which goes:(continued on page 27)

26


June 2013 (continued from page 26) We want to help all that we can To clear the Church Room debt And if we each do our little bit We’ll get it wiped off yet. I don’t know how much longer it took to pay off the debt as 1927 was during the time of the great depression, but eventually they reached their goal. So here we are in 2013 still struggling to raise funds to keep the hall in running order, but I am sure that the effort is worthwhile. Even though usage of the hall is considerably less than in the past there are plenty of Brownies, Pre School Playgroup Children and Dancers who are grateful for the facility. At the end of last year we had a new kitchen fitted in the downstairs room thanks to a grant from the Coalfields Regeneration Trust, we also had the heating system replaced, the old system having failed miserably, so there is no lessoning in our commitment to keep things going. The Centenary gives us an opportunity for celebration and therefore on Saturday 22nd of June there will be a couple of events taking place in the hall during the day (see advertisement), I do hope that you will be able to support them.
