Smith’s Dock War Memorial in their Harton Recreation Park, photographed in 1924

ÂŁ1


Smith’s Dock War Memorial in their Harton Recreation Park The above photograph was taken from what is now the front main entrance of Harton Academy looking North. The house in the distance, most probably part of Harton House Farm, has been replaced by bungalows and the field is now part of the school playing field. The school was not built until 1936, so this predates the school. Smiths Dock had bought a 9 acre site in Harton and had turned it into a recreation ground, with cricket

pitches, tennis courts and so on. A groundsman was employed and the whole place smart and well used. By the time of the Second World War the site was owned by the YMCA and used as their playing fields. On the night of Friday 25th April 1941 a parachute mine fell on the field and caused severe damage to hundreds of houses in the area. One assumes the war memorial was irreparably damaged that night.

From the Vestry In our now two-monthly pattern of p ro d u c t i o n , i t feel s at o n ce appropriate and somehow sadly connected, that we open in harvest time and we close in remembrance t i d e . T h e w h o l e o f l i fe a n d fruitfulness is encapsulated within this season of the magazine. We begin by being thankful for all the gifts God gives us, for life, and we end being thankful for life itself, as we remember those we have laid to rest, this year and in generations gone by.

generosity, worship and making more disciples.” In turn these habits form and reform us as individuals and as community, and as we move towards the growth targets of the Resource Church programme, which will enable us to i d e n t i f y p a t t e r n s w h i c h a r e replicable elsewhere, we are keen to see how and what we can learn, and how we can teach and encourage others. In fact, aside from the busyness of the Christmas season getting ready to bear down swiftly upon us, we do see this current season as a time to reflect on our thankfulness, our fruitfulness, our thankfulness for life itself and our understanding of, and living out of, abundance and joy. In the harvest and as we say thank you to long-time servants who step away from roles of responsibility to bring others gifts to the fore; as we give thanks for lives coming to a close, we are focussed on how we enable everyone to flourish and be the people God made them to be, exercising the talents and gifts he gave them, using their wisdom and care.

We begin a new series of home group studies this month. They are based on Andrew Roberts’ book ‘Holy Habits’ and each group will take a different topic for the term. In Holy Habits, Andrew, a Methodist minister, identified 10 disciplines from the section of Acts 2:42ff which characterized the first Christian community – the apostles and disciples as they began to figure out the way – and which are still p r e s e n t a s c h a r i s m s i n a l l communities marked by growth and flourishing. His book “explores and encourages the practice of… biblical teaching, fellowship, breaking bread, From a presentation/book some prayer, sharing resources, serving, time ago, I made note of the ‘Needs eating together, gladness and of individuals’ – viz. to be led in 4


worship; to be taught; to receive p a sto ra l ca re; to ex p eri en ce fellowship; to find avenues of s e r v i c e . F ro m a p e rs o n a l o r individual point of view, these seem to tally well with the holy habits, which are written more from the community perspective. As we move through this autumn into winter and the weddings and baptism schedule gives way to coughs, colds, aches, pains and in some cases worse, our attention turns quite naturally to watching out for each other. There is a time and a season for everything, Ecclesiastes reminds us, and so now for a while we focus on those relationships and the quality of ‘church’. We shall turn a spotlight on our fellowship and pastoral care (which will allow some people whose giftings lie there, develop their own avenues for service). ‘Church’ says Andrew Roberts, is simply the ‘plural of disciples’. So we will use our sense of thankfulness and fruitfulness to help shape what we think is important to church as we are; then we can articulate what we have to offer as church, what the faith we share has to offer, what we actually are inviting people into when we invite them or welcome them. We do know that people ARE welcome, at every age and stage, and that we are all made in God’s image. We do know that we are all

incredible and precious gifts, in of ourselves; and we know that we should probably all be more thankful for each other and those we love more than perhaps we sometimes are. Jesus called us not simply to ‘believe in God’ but to ‘follow me’ and as we leave this year’s harvest behind, we prepare to sow afresh, as we place our footsteps more carefully onto the way. There is still opportunity to join our discussion groups, from within or beyond our congregations, so please do ask for more details if you are interested. While we look inward for a while, we do not neglect looking around. If there is a friend or neighbour who is ill, lonely or in need, or people you normally see in church appear to be missing, please do make sure someone of the leadership teams knows. Gracious God, thank you that you have called us to live in fellowship with you and with others, Thank you for the good things that we receive by being part of communities both within and outside the church. Thank you for your infinite patience with us when we fall short in our response to the fellowship which you offer us. Just…thank you.

INVISIBLE KISSES
 written by Lemn Sissay

And even then believed;
 Who would clear the air
 When it’s full of loss;
 Who would count love
 Before the cost.

If there was ever one
 Whom when you were sleeping
 Would wipe your tears
 When in dreams you were weeping;
 Who would offer you time
 When others demand;
 Whose love lay more infinite
 Than grains of sand.

If there was ever one
 Who when you are cold
 Will summon warm air
 For your hands to hold;
 Who would make peace
 In pouring pain,
 Make laughter fall
 In falling rain.

If there was ever one
 To whom you could cry;
 Who would gather each tear
 And blow it dry;
 Who would offer help
 On the mountains of time;
 Who would stop to let each sunset
 Soothe the jaded mind.

If there was ever one
 Who can offer you this and more;
 Who in keyless rooms
 Can open doors;
 Who in open doors
 Can see open fields
 And in open fields
 See harvests yield.

If there was ever one
 To whom when you run
 Will push back the clouds
 So you are bathed in sun;
 Who would open arms
 If you would fall;
 Who would show you everything
 If you lost it all.

Then see only my face
 In reflection of these tides
 Through the clear water
 Beyond the river side.
 All I can send is love
 In all that this is
 A poem and a necklace
 Of invisible kisses.

If there was ever one
 Who when you achieve
 Was there before the dream

'Home Comforts' - new initiative helping vulnerable South Tyneside residents put healthy meals on the table A community project is helping vulnerable residents have access to healthy meals by delivering them straight to their door.

“The main choices were sandwiches, soup or unhealthy ready meals which were highly processed. Unhealthy alternatives were hard to come by and expensive. There weren’t really any good options.” Karen continued: “We did a lot of research with care companies and community groups, and one of the needs that came up was older people and those who are more housebound than others.” “There is definitely a big need, people have said there is nothing else like this.”

Fit Belli Deli, Westoe Crown Sea Winnings Way South Shields, is an initiative that has been developed by Karen Wood and Donna Kerr-Foley, which aims to provide nutritious food to help people lead a healthy lifestyle.

The service now delivers fresh, homecooked meals, twice a week to residents’ homes across South Tyneside. They can choose as many dishes as they like, from a varied menu, with a plan of six meals costing £24, and all p r o f i t s g o i n g b a c k i n t o t h e community. The staff also act as an extra support to vulnerable residents, ensuring they understand and can meet their individual needs.

Their ‘Home Comforts’ range was inspired by a need in the community for older, less mobile residents, and those who are cared for or live alone, to have access to healthy and affordable meals. “When my mum came out of hospital she needed extra support through domiciliary care, but the carers only got 15 minutes to prepare a meal,” explained founder, Karen Wood, from South Shields.

“There was an issue around people with sight impairments, who were 10


deaf, or couldn’t get to the door,” said Karen. “We want it to be safe for everyone, so all our staff are DBS checked a n d h a v e t h e r e l e v a n t experience, so we can go in and provide everything that they need, such as putting it in the fridge or telling them what’s in their package.” She added: “From my own experience with my mum, k n o w i n g t h e r e w a s a n organisation providing a safe service to someone and providing that extra check, would have been really important, so that holistic approach was vital for us to get right.” Source Shields Gazette, 16th August 2019

Goodness, but what a summer! 587 children’s lunches, we counted in the end, and well over 850 including parents. We opened up the back of church by moving 6 pews (which almost everyone thinks was genius) to fit everyone in. We also had tweaked our system, so everyone entered through church, signing in in the lobby and filtering through. This year the children pre-chose sandwich filling and crisp flavours, in order to cut down on food wastage, which worked really well. With so many adults on site, we also ensured they all wore a sticker to know everyone on the premises was supposed to be there. And on the whole, it went fabulously. Huge thanks to church and parent volunteers, to the food team and those who prepped and managed the activity tables; those who helped with sign in or clear up. Amongst the feedback:

Summer holiday club

“All I can say is wow!” “Thank you for all your hard work again this year.” “It has been a lifesaver plenty of things to do.”

Bulletin Lone Working: Our churches rely on an army of volunteers to keep things going smoothly and often this means that people are in church alone. We very much appreciate all the time you give but we also owe a duty of care to you and so we’d like to offer a few pointers to bear in mind when you are in church alone: Firstly, please make sure that someone knows where you are and what you are doing. Ensure that you have a phone with you and that it is charged. Try not to leave yourself vulnerable whilst in church; make sure that the outside door is locked but that you can leave easily if necessary. If you are alone in church, you should avoid using ladders or climbing on furniture. If you need to climb, arrange for someone to be with you. 
 When you leave, let your contact know that you have left the building. 
 Thank you once again for all you do.

and friendship between the churches and the nations, but will of course (or only perhaps?) be taking place in the days immediately following Brexit, and thus also gives us a chance to say that maintaining relationships with our friends and fellow Europeans is important to us.

German Visitors: once again we will be joined by a pastor from the Nordkirche for our services on Remembrance Day weekend. Eleven pastors will be coming for 5 days to share a consultation on ‘Children and Family’. This will not only be an important way to continue to display an active sign of collaboration, peace

Brownie anniversary: St Cuthbert’s brownie pack (17th South Shields) celebrated its 40th anniversary on September 17th. This also meant 40 years of being run by Janet Gardner as Brown Owl, who now steps back for Liza Dorothy to take the helm. Many thanks, Janet, and good luck Liza!

Deanery Plan update: Canon Sheila Bamber is currently meeting with lay representatives from all parishes, but as yet no update on an actual plan… Resource Church bid update: after two meetings in Durham, we have now agreed a text for the Diocesan proposal that we think we can live up to, and so as soon as this is submitted we will be sharing the final details. It has incorporated the very strong feedback we presented, that it was crucial to us to act as a single body working together, and looking to move forward together, building capacity within so that we can then in turn support out locally.

The justice system is failing young offenders By The Revd Anne Bennett, formerly Curate at St Peter’s Harton, and who now is the Team Vicar in the Ravensbourne Team Ministry, in south London, says a new approach is offered by ‘Secure Schools’ - but they present significant challenges FELTHAM Young Offenders Institution (YOI) is unsafe. The YOI, one of four in England and Wales, has been told by the Inspector of Prisons that it must not accept any new placements until “decisive action” has been taken. There is nothing new in this: Feltham has c o n s i s t e n t l y b e e n f o u n d t o b e inadequate and unsafe. The dry prose of inspection reports understates reality. We read that levels of self-harm have trebled in six months, assaults on staff are up, and incidents of violence are through the roof. As a YOI chaplain, I saw this every day: young people punched brick walls until the room was spattered with blood, or stabbed themselves with pencils. Staff were viciously attacked. A nurse was punched and lost an eye. A teacher’s jaw was broken. An officer was pushed downstairs. Young people fought all the t i m e . I re m e m b e r a c h i l d l y i n g motionless in a pool of blood, felled by a single shattering punch, as a white-faced nurse shouted for oxygen. Young people’s anger and despair is e x p r e s s e d a s v i o l e n c e a g a i n s t themselves, against each other, and against those who care for them. YOIs deal with this by keeping the children

locked up, and, at Feltham, children leave their cells, on average, for only 4.2 hours a day, which disrupts their wellbeing, health care, and education. The inspectors report at Feltham that a child received his anti-epilepsy medication six hours late, which is horrifying when we remember that 16-year-old Daniel Adewole died of epilepsy in Cookham Wood in 2016. THE justice system is not healing, rehabilitating, or educating these children. After five years working in a YOI, I felt that there was no solution other than a total overhaul of the system. I am not alone. The Howard League for Penal Reform has been calling for the closure of YOIs for years. A better solution is Secure Children’s Homes (SCHs): small units that hold children near their homes and families. SCHs are, however, nearly three times more expensive to run than YOIs. The Government has a new proposal for youth custody. The “Secure School” is the brainchild of the behaviour expert Charlie Taylor, and is designed as a combined academy and SCH. Oasis Charitable Trust will run the first Secure School on the old Medway Secure Training Centre site, next door to

Cookham Wood YOI. The founder of Oasis, the Revd Steve Chalke, envisages a “ c h a l l e n g i n g a n d r e d e m p t i v e environment”.

Girls in custody, who are often victims of sexual abuse and violence, should not be held alongside male sex-offenders. Even if they are physically safe, juvenile establishments are rife with verbal abuse, including sexual language and gender-specific invective. It is appalling that only two paragraphs of the Taylor report refer to the specific needs of girls, who are always an afterthought in the justice system.

The move towards the SCH model is positive, and it is good to see that the Secure School will not be a profit-making enterprise. Secure Schools will focus on mentoring, education, and holistic care, and they will not be allowed to use painful restraint techniques on children.

Oasis faces the dilemma whether to take experienced prison staff, who will bring the old custodial culture with them, or whether to train teachers and nurses to run a high-security institution. It will not be easy to find the right staff to deal with these offenders, who are both children and dangerous criminals who steal, injure, and kill. If anyone can make this work, it will be Oasis, who do have a genuine belief in the power of the individual to change.

The Oasis Secure School, however, will have a capacity of 64 — much higher than a children’s home — and will have a lower budget per child. When there are only 900 children in custody, and the impact on society is so serious, it is depressing that this area is constantly squeezed for cash. More small Secure Children’s Homes could have been a better option, with mental health, education, and other specialists covering more than one home.

Changing the institution alone will not help these children. I have met children who have lived rough, who have lived in hostels infested with rats, who have been taken in by “kind neighbours” who turned out to be drug-dealers. If these children are to turn their lives around, we must work on the underlying issues of homelessness, gang culture, drugs, racism, poverty, and exclusion.

CAN Oasis, which has a record of some success in troubled secondary schools, deliver hope for these children? The challenge is huge. Gang culture and bullying dominate their lives, and violence is their language. Oasis is being asked to take on children who have serious mental-health issues, special educational needs, and histories of n e g l e c t , a b u s e , a n d t r a u m a t i c bereavement; and they have committed awful crimes. Most worryingly, there are plans to place girls in secure schools.

I do wonder whether this time Steve Chalke has taken on too big a challenge. I pray with all my heart that he has not. Church Times 23rd August 2019 17


SNIPPETS, STORIES AND SOUNDBITES

Each era was accompanied by a few bars of music, depicting the suffering in the country. The young pianist then played the work in full, the final section being what we know as the hymn tune for ‘Be still my soul’ representing the country’s final independence. It was profoundly moving and the passion and emotion was manifest in the performance, leaving us with lasting memories.

It’s Never Too Late Revd Kate’s comments in our last issue re giving thought to ordination training gave me much food for thought and reflection. As a Reader for 20+ years, I felt God knocking at the door more urgently. I was further encouraged by words to me from Father John Miller, “Stan, if He wants you, He will have you!” He apparently did want me, and that produced what has been 20 years of joy (mostly!), tremendous fulfilment and happiness in the privilege of service and ministry. When I announced my intentions to our sons, their combined reaction was “What’s taken you so long Dad?”. I think I can safely say that I am sure Canon Brian will concur with me from his own calling. And can I say, it’s never too late! Revd Stan

I am always interested in the activities (notwithstanding the suffering they are dealing with) of the Aid Agencies and their workers, some being more adventurous than fiction, e.g. sailing rafts of motor bikes down crocodile infested rivers for speedier movement of medical care to inhospitable areas . One recent account that gladdened my heart, was of the collaboration of two charities which we have supported in the past, (and some continue to do so independently), Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) and Mercy Ships, whereby those living in inhospitable areas and unable or too ill to reach the hospital ship are now being flown by the light aircraft, have their treatment/operations and home again in a day in many cases. Truly worth our support and prayers!

Be Still M Soul On a holiday visit to Helsinki we attended a mini piano and violin recital, two students playing piano transcriptions by Sibelius of his own works, introduced and narrated by their tutor. Their last piece was Finlandia, and the tutor related the turbulent history of Finland under Swedish and Russian domination.
