FROM THE RECTOR Honorary Canon

I wish to thank you all for your kind supportat the Collationand Installationat Blackburn Cathedral 23 Sep 12.1am deeply humbled by the appointment to the College of Canons and evenmore humbled by yoursupport, I havea deep lovefor Heyshamor rathermore accurately for the peopleofHeysham. I count myself the luckiest of mento havebeenappointed as yourRector. I promise againto serve you with all my energy for however long it is my good fortune to remain in Heysham.

Meadow Project - 06 Oct 12 - BRING A RAKE!

On 06 Oct 12 we have organised a Community Day to create a wild flower meadow in St Peter's Churchyard. The grass will be cut down a few days before so that on the day it can be raked up and movedunderthe trees. The grass will then become shelter for wildlife like hedgehogsto help them to survive the winter. Next the ground to receive the wild flower meadow seeds will need to be raked so mat mere are little furrows down to the bare earth where the seed can be sown. We

have hundreds ofpackets ofseed but volunteers will need to bring rakes. Many people have contacted me to wish us well for the wild flower meadow.

Among them have been bee keepers who tell me that it has been a bad year for bees and that they will need all the help they can get to survive into the future. We hope that local schools and families will adopt areas ofthe wild flower meadow and look after them into the future. Alreadythere are plans to provide little hedgehog shelters. We have been advised about other wild flowers that will be helpful to the wild flower meadow and various species ofbutterflies and insects.

We hope that 06 Oct 12 will be just the start of a projectwhichwill support the wildlife of this area. Harvest Festival

Our Harvest Festival Family Service will be 14 Oct 12 at 0930am at St Peter's with a Harvest Thanksgiving at St James at 1100am. Children and members ofthe

congregation are encouraged to bring tins and packets that can be handed on to the homeless.

There is also an established team ofworkers providing Support for people in housing need under the Government's Supporting People Programme. They support them with their daily issues which can include debt, addictions or everyday worries.

Those seeking help are ordinary people whose circumstances have altered their way oflife. They might bepeople who have been incare, come fix>m broken

homes, have addictions, come out ofthe services orcome out ofprison.

For twenty-five years there has been a Christmas shelter, 24/7 from Christmas Eve for5 days and nights. There isnothing else inthe Lancaster District which consistentlygives this care.

Funding comes from the local community and the local churches especially for the food service. The centre is open for food seven days aweek, Monday to Friday from 10am for breakfast to1lam, tea and coffee is available until lunch isserved at 12.30 until 1.15pm and the centre shuts at 1.30pm.

Nativity 2012

In the past we used to be able to have Nativity Plays in bom St James and St Peter's but last year it was only possible to have one Nativity Play. These days parents and children have so many extra commitments from school, clubs and relatives. This year the Nativity Play will be in St Peter's on the third Sunday ofDecember. More details in the November Magazine... Parish Website

The company that hosts our website has been taken over by another group and we had quite a lot of difficulty renewing our contract this year because we do not have a Parish Credit or Debit Card. It is all sorted now but it left me feeling nervous about the future. If ever we lost www.hevshamparish.orp.uk we could still provide a link to our new website through our Twitter account https://twitter.com/HevshamParish - let us hope it will all be sorted out in the near future.

will not usuallybe possibleto have an appointment on an alternativedate ST PETER'S SCHOOL

Well, that's the six weeksholidays beenand goneand what a relaxing(if busy!) timeI've had. I've thoroughly enjoyed all of the Olympics and Paralympics, my family and I tried to get in to prettymucheveryLondonOlympicvenuebut Med miserably...had great fun trying though! Highlights ofthe summer include a

photograph with Bradley Wiggins, holding a Gold medaland findinga golden post-box!

What a great start to the new schoolyear we have had! Our Receptionnew starters havecompleted two full mornings and seemverysettledand happy,I thinkthe parents were more emotional than the children on their first day! The rest ofthe children are enjoying being in the next class up and our wonderful Year 6s have

already risento the challenge of all of theextraresponsibilities thattheynowhave, we really would be lost without them!

The newplayground has been installed and we are delighted with the results,the area has been completely transformed with a look-out tower, a new road and garage, den-building, sand, music and even a Hobbit house! Grateful thanks must go to our wonderful Friends who have made a significantfinancialcontributionin order to make it all possible.

We're all looking forward to getting involved in the Wild Flower Meadow project on Saturday the 6th so hopefully plenty of people willturn up to helpmakeit happen! All the very best - Dave McPartlin GLEBE GARDEN

An update on the Glebe Garden Project.

Wehavereached a pointwhere we cantakea further couple of seats for the Glebe Garden - some of theolder ones arebeyond repair. We have contacted the family ofthe people to whom they were dedicated and agreed that, ifthey arenotpossible to repair, we willremove the dedication pieceand mount it on the wall.The seats are presently being stained again in preparation for winter.

Page 15


We can also take some more flower dedications which are also entered into a book

in theChurch. Wehaveput in roses butbecause of the lackof light(andthe rain misyear), theyhavenot donetoo well, although theyare managing to survive, so we are looking for donations ofÂŁ20 towards shrubs, acers, etc.

Wewouldalso liketo encourage morepeople to volunteer, we normally work on alternate Tuesdays but somego witha friend at othertimes. It is a wayto make newfriends andgetsomefresh air.If youarenot working whynotjoin us to get some experience in horticulture? Working in thegarden it is amazing howmany people walkingdown Main Streetstop and talk to you.

legislation toenable women to become bishops inthe Church ofEngland. The new amendment submitted bythe Rev. Janet Appleby during the consultation process received overwhelming support from theHouse of Bishops in bomtheir discussions andinthe final vote. Indiscussion theBishops welcomed the Page 19

simplicity ofthe new text, its emphasis on respect and the process ofdialogue with parishes thatit willpromote. TheHouse of Bishops made clearits desire for the

draft legislation tobepassed into law when itgoes forward for final approval to the Church of England'sGeneral Synod inNovember.

Speaking on behalfofthe House atthe conclusion oftheir meeting the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr. Rowan Williams said:

"Since women were first made priests inthe Church ofEngland in 1994, their

ministry has hugely enriched both church and society. Ithas become increasingly clear to most ofus that barring women from becoming bishops is an anomaly that should be removed, for the good ofthe Church's mission and service. In July this year, the General Synod asked the House ofBishops to reconsider an alteration it

had made tothe proposed legislation on this subject. The Bishops have taken very seriously the anxieties expressed about the possible implications oftheir amendment and there has been widespread consultation since men. We are very grateful forallthepoints and suggestions offered bysynod members andothers. In light ofthis consultation, the Bishops have discussed the measure again and are now bringing forward a newtextthatexpresses bothour conviction of the needto see this legislation passedand our desireto honourthe conscience and contribution

ofthose in the Church ofEngland whose reservations remain. Itis particularly significant and welcome that the new text emerged not from the House ofBishops itselfbut rather from a serving woman priest. I hope all members ofSynod will now reflect carefully on what the Bishops have decided and will continue togive thought and prayerto howthey will vote in November. I am convinced that the

time has come for the Church ofEngland tobe blessed by the ministry ofwomen asbishops and it is mydeep hope that thelegislation will pass inNovember." SHOWS
