The Church Army: Celebrating 85 Years 1928 - 2013 The Church Army at St. Peter was established around the year 1928 when the Captain was Mr. George Cummins. There was, a roll of 50 members. Meetings were held in the Old Goldina Lodge room in Farm Road, St. PeterThey were later moved to the Old Parish hall at St. Peter’s Parish Church. The Church Army may be regarded as the evangelical wing of the Church, so their music is usually mission hymns. However, their main concern is in reaching out into the community. They would hold a number of “open air” meetings and pay regular visits to the sick and “shut-ins”. There is also a subsidiary section at St. Nicholas. It must be pointed out that the St. Nicholas section met under the title of St. Boniface Church Army before the establishment of St. Nicholas in 1968. The name of Mr. Williams will always be remembered as the person responsible for keeping the St. Nicholas group together. The Church Army in Barbados had recognised’ the need for training in order to carry out the important work of evangelism. To this end a School of Evangelism was held with some fifty persons graduating. Among these were the late Captain L. Cadogan, the present Captain Lolita Gibbons and Mrs. Gloria Jordan from St. Peter. Cottage meetings (or house to house meeting) were kept every Tuesday and Sunday evening at the home of members and continues to this day.

The Men’s Fellowship: Celebrating 40 years 1973 - 2013 The St. Peter’s Men’s Fellowship was inaugurated on St. Peter’s Day, June 29th 1973 when 43 men ranging in age from 24 years to 65 years were admitted into membership. The Fellowship was formed in response to an invitation from then Rector Canon Rufus Brome to the adult males of the Parish to organise themselves into a body which could provide a special ministry to men both within the Church and wider community and also supplement the work of other adult organisations such as the Mother’s Union and Church Army. Prior to the official launching, representatives from St. Mary’s Men’s Fellowship met with the group and outlined a number of factors which were to be considered when forming a Men’s Fellowship branch, as well as the type of Constitution that may be adopted. Membership is open to all baptised males over 18 years of age who after a short probationary period is then enrolled. The badge of the fellowship was designed by the Rector, and is inscribed with the words of the motto: “LAUNCH OUT INTO THE DEEP.” In keeping with its aims and objectives, the Fellowship has over the years made visitations to sick and shut-in males of the parish, undertaken projects for the upkeep of the Church buildings and surroundings and contributed financially to the work of the Church.

Smile: A businessman from Wisconsin, went on a business trip to Louisiana. He immediately sent an e-mail back home to his wife. Unfortunately, he forgot his wife's exact e-mail address and the e-mail ended up going to New Jersey, to the wife of a preacher who had just passed away. The preacher's wife took one look at the e-mail and promptly fainted. When she was finally revived by her daughter, she nervously pointed to the message, which read: "Arrived safely, but it sure is hot down here." 8

RECESSIONAL HYMN - 651MP The kingdom of God Is justice and joy For Jesus restores What sin would destroy. God’s power and glory In Jesus we know And here and hereafter The kingdom shall grow The kingdom of God Is mercy and grace The captives are freed The sinners find place, The outcast are welcomed God’s banquet to share, And hope is awakened In place of despair.
The kingdom of God Is challenge and choice Believe the good news Repent and rejoice! His love for us sinners Brought Christ to his cross Our crisis of judgement For gain or for loss. God’s kingdom is come The gift and the goal, In Jesus begun In heaven made whole; The heirs of the kingdom Shall answer His call, and all things cry, ‘Glory!’ To God all-in-all!

FIRST LESSON: (OLD TESTAMENT): Ezekiel 34:11-16 The word of the Lord came to Ezekiel "Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I, I myself will search for my sheep, and will seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock when some of his sheep have been scattered abroad, so will I seek out my sheep; and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness. And I will bring them out from the peoples, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them into their own land; and I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, by the fountains, and in all the inhabited places of the country. I will feed them with good pasture, and upon the mountain heights of Israel shall be their pasture; there they shall lie down in good grazing land, and on fat pasture they shall feed on the mountains of Israel. I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep, and I will make them lie down, says the Lord GOD. I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the crippled, and I will strengthen the weak, and the fat and the strong I will watch over; I will feed them in justice. PSALM: 87 (7:30a.m. - page 581) 1. HER foundations are upon the holy hills : the Lord loveth the gates of Sion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. 2. Very excellent things are spoken of thee : thou city of God. 3. I will think upon Rahab and Babylon : with them that know me. 4. Behold ye the Philistines also : and they of Tyre, with the Morians; lo, there was he born. 7
5. Persons in many cases have been using one for the month, and leaving the others empty and attached to the one which carries the money. It is hoped that we all would be able to make a calculation of the exact monthly figure. Multiply your weekly contribution by five (5) and come to your final figure. I am suggesting that persons use the facility offered by Government, through the Inland Revenue to claim on their income tax, and benefit from any refunds which are available. We are seeking to be more efficient and more cost effective through this venture.
5. And of Sion it shall be reported that he was born in her : and the most High shall stablish her. 6. The Lord shall rehearse it when he writeth up the people : that he was born there. 7. The singers also and trumpeters shall he rehearse : All my fresh springs shall be in thee. 2nd LESSON: 7:30 - David Yearwood
9:30 - Violet Griffith
I am looking for persons to form an Altar Guild, with specific reference to looking after the linens and items used at the altar. In previous years persons were allocated a month to help with the washing of the linens. Many of these persons have died and the burden now falls on a few persons. If you are interested in this particular ministry, kindly give your name to the Rector, or indicate your willingness to help in this important area. This will be followed by a meeting to put these efforts and ideas in place.
SECOND LESSON (EPISTLE): 2 Timothy 4:1-8 I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, and exhort, be unfailing in patience and in teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths. As for you, always be steady, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfil your ministry. For I am already on the point of being sacrificed; the time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.

THE GOSPEL: John 21:15-19 When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs." A second time he said to him, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep." He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, "Do you love me?" And he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my sheep. Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you girded yourself and walked where you would; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish to go." (This he said to show by what death he was to glorify God.) And after this he said to him, "Follow me."

Dedication Prayer Lord, be with us this day and throughout the week; Within us to purify us; Above us to draw us up; Before us to lead us; Behind us to restrain us; Around us to protect us. Amen. BLESSING
HYMN - 60MP Blest be the tie that binds our hearts in Christian love; the fellowship of kindred minds is like to that above. Before our Father's throne we pour our ardent prayers; our fears, our hopes, our aims are one our comforts and our cares. We share our mutual woes, our mutual burdens bear; and often for each other flows the sympathizing tear.
When for a while we part, this thought will soothe our pain; that we shall still be joined in heart, and hope to meet again. This glorious hope revives our courage by the way; while each in expectation lives, and longs to see the day. From sorrow, toil, and pain, and sin we shall be free; and perfect love and friendship reign through all eternity.

Offering Envelopes for 2014 The Church Council has made a decision to use only monthly envelopes from next year. This means that we are discontinuing the weekly envelopes. A number of reasons have resulted in this decision:1. The cost of the envelopes. 2. The cost of bulk postage from the USA. 3. The monthly envelopes will be cheaper to produce and to post. 4. The wastage of these envelopes, with many of them left unused every year. 5
