located next to the manor house. (It was later rebuilt in its current location in 1859 using parts of the original building) During his time at the manor he dined at Sir John’s table and had many theological disputes with the local dignitaries, most of which he was able to win because of his thorough knowledge of the bible. It was these disputes which eventually lead to his leaving the area. They also led him to realise the wide gulf between the religion of the day and that of the New Testament due to the ignorance of the laity and the clergy of the contents of the Bible, and he began to see a need for an English translation of the Bible. The lack of biblical knowledge of the clergy of the day was shown by a visitation by Bishop Hooper of the Gloucester diocese where an examination of 311 clerics found that 10 could not say the Lord’s Prayer, 30 could not name its author or say where it was written, 170 could not repeat the Ten Commandments and although most could say the creed, two thirds of them could not support its statements from scripture.

William Tyndale William Tyndale, famous for his translation of the New Testament into English, has close associations with St Adeline’s Church in Little Sodbury. In 1522 William came to live and work at Little Sodbury Manor as tutor to the children of Sir John Walsh and Anne Poyntz. Sir John was a leading citizen of the County, having been at Henry VIII’s court and acted as the King’s champion at his coronation. During his time there William preached all over the area and particularly in St Adeline’s church which at that time was

Dear Friends I was surprised the other day as I chatted to a 12 year old member of my family – he’d asked for pictures of Banksy murals to decorate his bedroom walls. So soon after a Banksy mural appearing in Cheltenham I was quite pleased with his choice, especially as I too am a fan of his work - I don’t think there’s one of his murals that doesn’t at least make me smile but more than that he has an outlook on life that I can identify with and he’s not shy to make his opinions known. This is one of my favourites. It’s of a couple of older ladies knitting, knees covered by blankets with the slogans on them ‘Punks not dead’ and ‘Thug for life.’ That’s funny because I don’t know many thug shaped older ladies. Could it be saying that some think they’re being rebellious and don’t realise it won’t get them anywhere except to old age? Whilst I am not qualified in the least to give any worthy on art, I would say Banksy reflects what is uppermost in our society’s concerns. He appears to want to draw attention to important aspects of life that sometimes get overlooked. For instance this one in Mayfair, London, someone has entitled ‘Shop until you Drop.’ That’s quite an observation don’t you think? It says to me that we are getting carried away living, as we do, in a society where we can feel judged by the food we eat and the clothes we wear. We’ve created a society where shopping itself has become a way of life for many. This one they say is not a Banksy, but it does raise the question what sort of reception Christ would receive were he to return in our time. Or is the mural questioning whether or not it would it be possible for Christ to carry the Cross today or would the Police, the enforcers of the Law, be the ones who try to stop him. Caught on camera by the other enforcers of law, social media, might they be the ones who would try to prevent Him fulfilling his Father’s will? The other question of course is the mural placing Christ and His cross in the centre of our society, in the midst of all that worries us most. That’s where it should be, but is it there for many of us? Of course we all have different opinions on art and graffiti and Banksy is not to everyone’s taste but the challenge this mural possibly raises does need to be addressed by us all I would suggest, where does Christ figure in our lives? And do we, as Christ’s body on earth, also have a comment to make on the injustices of our world, and if we do, are we prepared to make it available for public scrutiny? Yvonne Rev.

A Glimpse of How it Ends

Volunteers

We all like reading a good story – a good novel that we can’t put down. But I wonder how many of us ‘cheat’ by going to the last chapter to see how it all works out in the end…? The Bible is like that, made up of many different books written by different authors. But it is the last book, Revelation, that makes for fascinating and inspiring reading as we get glimpses of how it is all going to finish. Perhaps, like me, you get particularly inspired by the scene depicted in chapter 7. There we are given a picture of a large, white throne, upon which Jesus Christ – the Lamb - is seated. And all around that throne, worshipping Him are people of every tribe, nation, people and language. But how was this made possible? Down through the centuries followers of Jesus have been going out across land and sea telling people about him and making disciples throughout the world. Why? Because this is what He told us to do…!! (Matt 28:19). As a result the worldwide church has grown enormously and believers are found in every country. In early September the Gloucester Diocese celebrated the international partnerships it has established with partners in India, Tanzania, USA and Sweden. In our own Benefice we also help support the work of mission partners in the Philippines (the Cho’s with CMS), in Kenya (Turning Point) and with MAF. We support them through our giving – but also through our monthly Global Action prayer meeting where a small group of us get together. We meet in the Church Centre on the third Monday of each month at 8pm. Come and join us! By these means we contribute toward making John’s vision in Revelation become a reality. Frank Gray

Some years ago I left my vicarage by taxi to go to the station to attend the four-day meeting of the Church of England’s General Synod in London. ‘Where are you off to?’ asked the taxi driver. I explained as well as I could, and he followed up with the comment, ‘I expect you get paid more for doing that?’ ‘Oh no,’ I said. ‘I do it for love!’ He looked surprised: ‘I didn’t think anyone did anything for love anymore.’ He should come and look at the church. Church is full of people who do things for love. ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’ is the golden rule, and many people put this into practice in a myriad of ways. They set up lunch clubs for the elderly; they run toddler groups; they litter pick on Saturday mornings. They sing, act, bake, visit, run youth groups, organise food banks, support local charities, care for the sick… the list is endless. I don’t think of what Christians do as volunteering, more as loving God and neighbour; actions that flow out of our calling in Christ and our desire to serve him and one another. Of course, Christians don’t have the monopoly on this but more people do unpaid work for church organisations than any other organisation in the UK and a quarter of regular churchgoers are involved in voluntary community service outside the church. Churchgoers overall contribute 23.2 million hours voluntary service each month in their local communities outside the church. That’s something to celebrate, and whether you think of it as ‘volunteering’, or as ‘doing this for love’, I’d like to say a big ‘THANK YOU’. The Archdeacon of Gloucester, the Venerable Jackie Searle 6


Helping the Church help A trip to Tanzania. In July 2014 I was one of 21 students and others staff from All Saints’ Academy who was lucky enough to visit Kasulu in Western Tanzania on mission to help build Bishop Makaya Secondary School, visit local schools, towns and teach English. We were extremely humbled by the extraordinary greetings and generosity we received from the moment we touched down at Kasulu airport, to every school, church visit or meeting with local people, until the day we left. We lived with 21 students and staff from a range of schools in the local area, who were exceptionally generous and patient at helping us feel welcome and settled with local cultures and ways of life; from meals, schools and church services. We were invited to the largest church in Kasulu where we were introduced to the local people. We also enjoyed a spectacular lunch they had provided for us. Even though many of the locals had very limited or no English, this didn’t matter, as they still treated us like their friends / family. Kasulu, Tanzania is a very special and spiritual place that will always have a space in our hearts. It was a life changing trip, which I wouldn’t have been on if it wasn’t for the Diocese of Gloucester, Western Tanzania and in particularly, Staff at ASA for organising and Helen Sammon for the support. I feel like we have made friends that will last forever, and it is something that I will never forget. Hannah Whelan, All Saints’ Academy student

Churches across the Diocese of Gloucester have strong involvements with their surrounding communities. They range from helping rebuild broken lives to protecting the vulnerable. But running these schemes needs money and it is only through generous donations that they are able to keep running. Through people’s generosity, the Church is able to help more than 600,000 people who live throughout our 325 parishes. Churches want to journey with their community together. Often they are the only public building in the community, bringing people together in times of joy and sorrow, to celebrate and remember. This is the Church’s way of expressing God’s love for the entire community which it serves. It is the generous giving of those who value and support the Churches work which underpins all its work. More than 60 percent of the Church of England’s total income comes from individual regular giving. At a parish level, this can account for up to 85 percent of their income. In this diocese we take the subject of giving seriously and have lots of advice and guidance for those who wish to donate to support their Church. If you wish to support your Parish Church through a regular gift there are several ways you can do this. Talk to your vicar, parish treasurer, Gift Aid officer or churchwarden. These officers are best contacted through your parish church, but if you have difficulty in locating their information, please email giving@glosdioc.org.uk for further assistance.

will accompany the services, leaving me free to conduct. I’ve already sounded out some people who have sung in previous years and enlisted them, so I am confident the services will be both musically and spiritually rewarding.” If you want further information please contact Graham on 01454 250505 or graham.newman@yahoo.co.uk.

New Daylight New Daylight provides a short devotional thought for every day of the year - it helps readers to encounter God and grow spiritually and shows how the Bible is relevant to everyday life. The booklet is published every four months (this year’s subscription is £12.75) and can be obtained via Madeleine Ludlow at St John’s Church, Chipping Sodbury. A large print version is also available (£15.75). For the more gadget minded New Daylight can be delivered by email or read in an App on smart phones and tablets. As one user says: “I have my New Daylight on my tablet as I also have my bibles and summaries there, so everything I need to study God’s word is at my fingertips. I find New Daylight a useful supplement to my regular reading of the Bible. It gives a deeper look at particular passages and often gives me new insight into God’s word and teaches me something that I missed in my own Bible reading.”

TECHNICALLY IT’S A ROD, DO YOU THINK THAT’LL BE OK?

Benefice Choir at Christmas Arrangements are falling into place for this year’s Carol Services of Nine Lessons and Carols at three of the Benefice churches. (Horton has their own choir) As in previous years the music for these will be led by the Benefice Choir which Graham Newman has agreed to organise and conduct. As always he is keen for the choir to be as inclusive as possible and would like to hear from anyone interested in joining the singers. Practices will be at St John’s Church on Thursday evenings at 7.00pm starting on November 6 when they will rehearse the two choir-only items in addition to the congregational carols. Says Graham, “This year I’m particularly pleased to have the help of John Lee who 8

Journey Leaders Are you inspired by the outdoors? A simple Eucharist at the tide’s edge... standing on a Hebridean island to watch the sun flash the waves with setting light... the strength shared by three of us sheltering from fierce wind on a remote hillside... These are the things of Journeying, a not-for-profit ecumenical Christian organisation founded in 1988 and formerly known as Pilgrim Adventure. Each year

the Journeying team arrange a number of informal small group 'holiday journeys' to remote and not-so-remote spots in Britain and Ireland in the spirit of pilgrimage. Its origins lie in Celtic spirituality and that element is never far away, though there is no heavy religiosity at all – and people of any faith, denomination or none are welcomed openly. Holidays are led by one or two volunteer journey leaders. Walks, excursions and accommodation are all planned in advance by the leaders and expenses are covered. New leaders travel as an assistant to an experienced leader during their first trip. Support and advice from others in the team is always available. The team meets together twice a year and in many ways through its sharing of experiences and gathered times of prayer and retreat, resembles a small dispersed community. We are hoping to increase a little the number of holidays we run each year. This will require a few more leaders and so we invite you to consider the possibility of leading Journeying holidays. Journey leaders come from all walks of life and from all Christian traditions. To find out more about journey leadership with Journeying please ask for our ‘leaders pack’.

Being quiet with God Have you like me, heard lots of people say ‘I have a quiet time with God every day’ or ‘I don’t know what I’d do without that time alone with God.’ And you walk away wondering if you’ve just met a saint – certainly you’re sure you’ve just talked with a super spiritual. Well you have just met a saint (everyone who gives their lives over to God’s governorship is called a saint until they die!) But having a quiet time is there for everyone. It is a great thing to do and has many benefits. Maybe though you think ‘grief how can they make the time, I’m sooo busy’ or ‘I don’t think I could stop my mind for any length of time’ or ‘can’t do that so might as well give up before I start.’ Well first of all there needs to be a plan. Everyone of us, busy or easy going, can find our space overwhelmed with activities that just absolutely must be done before we can sit down. So make an appointment with yourself for the time that suits you best, morning or evening, in bed, sitting in a quiet space, somewhere where you can just be you. Have your Bible with you, a notebook and maybe a hymn or chorus. Determine to forget about being successful, forget about being liked, forget about feeling a failure. Then rev your engine down, calm yourself and wait until you can say some words directed at God. Ask God to open your mind to Him, ask him to cleanse your mind and to guide you. Read a portion of scripture, read it slowly. Don’t try to read too much too fast. If you take it slow you’ll find yourself thinking, meditating on the words. If or rather when a thought comes to you write it down and date it. Writing helps us to remember. Pray again, talk to God about it. Talk to Him about your friends, your family, the world around you, talk about anything on your mind. If you think

that God might be speaking to you, write that down too and give it some thought. Have you ever thought that a prayer is having a quiet time with God, praying is a conversation with God that will benefit your day and the day of those around you. Just put aside anything that might distract you and enjoy that space, the quietness of being with God. This isn’t the only way to have a quiet time, people find lots of different ways. Just be encouraged to perhaps use these to start and then find what suits and know that God is gracious and accepts us just as we are.

Feeling Closer to God In the previous edition of Outlook we looked at questions from the Jesuit traditions that we can ask ourselves as we pray. Some might have heard of Julian of Norwich, an anchorite i.e, someone who lived in a cell in the wall of a Church. She had a motto for prayer – all beginning with the letter A AWAIT (hands at waist, cupped up to receive): Await God’s presence, not as you expect, hope, or imagine, but just as it is in this moment. ALLOW (reach up, hands open): Allow a sense of God’s presence (or not) to come and be what it is, without meeting your expectations. ACCEPT (hands at heart, cupped towards body): Accept as a gift whatever comes or does not come. Accept that you are not in charge. Accept the infinity of God’s presence, present whether or not you are aware. ATTEND (hands outstretched, ready to be responsive): Attend to what you are called to, actions that God invites you to from this stance of openness.
