Trinity Contents:

Whilst you may still be enjoying some late summer sunshine, in this edition of Trinity we are looking forward. Taking place here at Holy Trinity on 6th—8th December will be our Christmas Tree Festival, a sneak preview of which can be found on page 3. John is also looking forward on page 2, reminding us that Holy Trinity is a changing church and that further change is needed to facilitate modern worship. Look out for further details in future editions.

John Routh writes -

A changing church

There's no getting away from it ... change is a natural part of life. It's true for individuals ... we all grow older, develop new interests and relationships, develop new aches and pains. It's true for communities ... some move away for education or work; some arrive to for much the same reasons. It's true for buildings too, even churches. I'm often struck when people looking around Holy Trinity ask me 'how old is this church?' Well, I say, it depends which part you're asking about. You see, there's been a church on the site for nearly 800 years, but very little of the original building is still visible, and over the years things have been changing almost constantly. The original church was a simple chancel and nave. By 1500 the nave had been extended and a tower added. Around 1533 two side aisles and the south porch were introduced. At some point the arch between tower and nave was filled in. By 1750 galleries had been installed to the north, south and west. Around 1760 there was a series of changes. The galleries were all replaced, and children's galleries added to the north and south. The roof of the nave was raised too. In the 1860's and 70's there was more change. The children's galleries were removed; the pitch of the nave roof was increased; the clergy vestry was built; the tower arch was opened up again; the north and west galleries were removed, and a further north aisle added with a new gallery over; the chancel floor was raised; screens were introduced separating the chancel from the areas to the north and south. Around 1900 a north west vestry was added (W H Bidlake), and by 1930 the area to the north of the chancel had been made into a side chapel (the Vesey chapel) and some of the ceilings had been painted. Holy Trinity has a complex history, a history of change. Not change for the sake of change, but change for a reason. Our church is not simply an architecturally and historically interesting building ... it's a place where we worship God. So changes in worship require changes in the building to facilitate that worship. Unless it changes from time to time the building will die. People will stop worshipping there ... they'll go to Page

other churches better adapted to offer the worship they seek, worship appropriate to their time. So like the generations before us we are going to make some changes to our church building. We have consulted extensively with English Heritage and other similar groups, and with the diocesan committee responsible for church buildings ... and we have reached a scheme of changes which respects the building's history and also allows us to make changes we believe are needed. We now have permission to proceed. The next step is to raise the funds for the work! We have some money set aside, but we need more. So over the coming months you will be hearing more about the changes and our reasons for making them, and about what they will cost and how we intend to raise the necessary funds. I trust PCC and I will have your support! John

CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL AND NATIVITY SET EXHIBITION Join us in December 2013 as we prepare to celebrate Advent and Christmas with a Christmas Tree Festival, and an exhibition of Nativity Sets from around the world. Local schools, charities, businesses, community groups and our own church organisations, including the uniformed groups, are invited to get involved by decorating a Christmas Tree to be displayed in the beautiful surroundings of Holy Trinity Parish Church. The 4ft. living trees will be supplied by the Forestry Commission in pots. After the Festival you will be able to purchase your decorated tree. There will be a colourful display of Nativity scenes and crib sets alongside the Christmas trees. This will feature homemade, handmade, shop-bought, heritage and modern collections lent by our church community. The display will be open to the public from 6th – 8th December 2013. Entry is free but donations will be very welcome. See page 20 for more details on how to get involved.

Through a Glass Darkly - Relationships. The readings in the next two months are about our relationship to God and our relationships with each other, and some of them need looking at carefully from a lot of different angles before we can get an inkling of what the prophets and Jesus are getting at. The easy readings point out the love and generosity of God, how he longs for us to maintain our relationship with him and asks for our love and service in return. In fact, the greatest service we render him is only a fraction of what is due. On the other hand he is forever ready to forgive and to give us the help we need even before we ask. Jacob wrestled with God and Jesus seems to recommend pestering him, suggesting that he will respond to such treatment. I think that the point is that when we ask of God we must be really sincere and must really want what we are asking for and so shall probably keep on coming back. God welcomes the fact that we do not become discouraged, but have faith and keep on asking. This does not mean that we deserve to have our prayers answered; we need always to be aware of our own shortcomings and of the blessings that God constantly showers upon us without being asked. This gives us humility before God but our service to him and to our neighbour will suffer if we are unwilling to put ourselves forward. I sometimes wonder if our desperate need for people to do work in the church community is because many feel unworthy or incapable of taking on roles in which they are so sorely needed. Lastly, God is on the side of the poor. Jesus’ story of the unjust steward is the most difficult of these readings and I look forward to having it explained to me. The only sense I can make of it is that, though he has done wrong and has been punished his master and Jesus still care about him. He finds a way to make future life possible and, apparently, this fact outweighs the paltry sums written off in his master’s ledgers – as a friend of mine used to say ‘After all, it’s only money’.

Youth Matters Well our group Youth Group, CYG ended last term on a busy note. Early in July we had the offer from Walmley Bowling Club to go and learn how to Crown Green Bowl. This we did and I can tell you we have some very talented people who had natural skill at the sport so watch this space and one day they may be Olympians or something. Our last but one session was led by Rosie and Tas who had prepared a Messy Church For Teenagers! So we had team games such as making words out of alphabet spaghetti, shaving balloons covered with whipped cream, blindfolded people feeding others and, messiest of all, Twister with poster paint on the circles. Some people may have been relieved that only the team captains had to do that last one but the Youth Worker has noted the game down so at a future time ALL can play! It was all good fun and yes, we did clear up after ourselves. Some of us WERE going to a Diocesan Youth Event the next weekend, due to be held in Pigeon Park but it was postponed because of the EDL march, but we still had our BBQ to look forward to. After being hot and sunny for ages, it drizzled all that day but luckily cleared by the evening. Two very kind parents did the BBQing which left the rest of us free to chat, play twister (minus the paint) and a very big and manic game of Uno. A few days later we were together again for our ADO (Annual Day Out). This time we went to Barry Island. And what a day! Sun, sea and sand; ice cream, chips, donuts; sunning, swimming and penny arcading. Lovely. AND no one broke their glasses, the sea gulls didn’t steal ALL of our chips and no one was TOO red. AND we found out that there 1.3m traffic cones in the country (we saw most of them on our journey). A good end to a good year. Continued...

Continued...

Things won’t be the same again as we lose 2 more to Uni and we would love to have some new members who are at secondary school and don’t mind doing wacky things. Have a word with me if you think that’s you.

Susie Walker

Dust if you must.... Dust if you must, but wouldn’t it be better To paint a picture or write a letter, Bake a cake or plant a seed, Ponder the difference between want and need? Dust if you must, but there's not much time, With rivers to swim and mountains to climb, Music to hear, and books to read, Friends to cherish and life to lead. Dust if you must, but the world’s out there, With the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair, A flutter of snow, a shower of rain. This day will not come round again. Dust if you must, but bear in mind, Old age will come and it’s not kind. And when you go - and go you must You, yourself, will make more dust. ~ Rose Milligan

Phil Morton’s Ordination On Saturday 13th July members of Holy Trinity went to Birmingham Cathedral to witness the ordination of our Group Curate, Phil Morton. Becky Stephens gave the following account of the service. Holy Trinity congregation members gathered outside the cathedral from 10.15amish when we were told that the service would be delayed until 12noon since the candidates (ordinands) were stuck on the M6. Unfortunately there had been an accident which had caused a fatality (we didn't know that then) and the motorway had been closed. The coach containing the ordinands was stuck on the motorway for hours... They had been on a retreat to Yorkshire to prepare them for their priesting. Holy Trinity members gathered in Nero CafÊ! At 11.30 I wandered over to the cathedral and found out the service would be delayed further as they were still on the motorway - apparently sat on a grass bank! The service eventually began at 1.30pm by which time a few people had had to leave but there were still plenty of us there to support Phil. The service was very formal and contemplative. There were 8 ordinands in total from the Birmingham Diocese. Bishop David led the service and Revd Dr Rowena Pailing preached. She told the congregation how the wait on the M6 had provided an amazing opportunity for mission. The ordinands did not show any tiredness or frustration because of their delay. They looked proud to be a part of the service and all incredibly humbled. All eight ordinands stood in front of Bishop Andrew as they made their promises to do the work of a priest. When it came to the Ordination Phil was led to the Bishop by Matthew Rhodes. He knelt in front of the Bishop who said "Send down the Holy Spirit on your servant Philip for the office and work of a priest in your Church." Page

10


They were then each presented with a Bible by Bishop Andrew. The newly ordained Priests then joined Bishop David at the altar as he presided at the Eucharist (said the Communion prayer). Each ordinand then took a paten (plate with the bread on) or chalice (wine) and took it to a part of the cathedral so that the congregation could share in communion. Phil went upstairs and we were downstairs. However that didn't change the sense of God's presence and the joy quite clearly visible on each ordinand's face. After the service we went out into the square. We congratulated Phil who was incredibly proud and humbled by the service. He commented that he was saddened that the day was extremely hard for some as they had lost loved ones in the motorway accident. He told me that they had prayed for all those involved in the accident before the service began. Phil presided at the Eucharist the following day in St Peters and the next Sunday at HT. People commented that he looked as though he had been doing it for years... Becky Stephens

Jill Ferguson—a tribute The following is an abridged version of the tribute given to Jill at her funeral by her family. Jill Ferguson was born on 9th June 1922 in Uppingham, Rutland. She died on the 8th June just one day short of her 91st birthday. Her father David Walters was a schoolmaster at Uppingham School and then headmaster at Bromsgrove School; Jill’s mother Frances assisted him in running the schools and little time was given to Jill. Initially Jill was educated by a succession of governesses prior to becoming a weekly boarder at Edgbaston High School for Girls. Jill had an older brother David who was sent away to boarding school meaning for Jill, at times her childhood was lonely and she used to look forward to family holidays on the Norfolk Broads. Jill was always a voracious reader with a lively imagination, imaginary friends and a keen interest in wild flowers. She left school and moved to London where she trained to be an SRN nurse at the Middlesex Hospital. She loved living in London and particularly the opportunity to indulge her love of theatre with the free tickets given to nurses at that time. She would often lament the difficulty of managing on a nurse’s wage but said it was good to understand how hard it is to be poor. She also experienced living in London during the air raids. Jill had a great friend Mary Banks. Jill loved recounting the story of how they went skiing together after the war and how hard it was to ski in the days before chair lifts! Photographs of them on the slopes prove what a glamorous and stylish young woman Jill was. It was whilst holidaying in Salcombe with Mary in 1954 that she met Derrig. In those days Derrig drove an MG sports car and although Jill never learnt to drive, she loved being driven by her dashing young beau Derrig.....They were married soon after on 16th April 1955 and had three daughters – Jane, Kate and Susan all within the space of just four years. They lived in Hollyhurst Road in Banners Gate before moving to Woodland Rise in central Sutton in 1970. Jill was a calm, kind and loving mother with a keen sense of fun. Jane remembers how her mother encouraged a sense of charitable enterprise, Kate recalls Saturday morning lie ins and Susan remembers how Mum always welcomed her friends into the house with endless cups of tea and biscuits. 17


Jill was an excellent manager of the housekeeping money and she taught all her daughters how to make a meal out of nothing, to willingly accept hand me downs and how to make shorts and tops out of remnants. Jill continued to enjoy holidays with her young family in Salcombe, Oxwich, Amroth and Porthtowan. The weather could never be guaranteed so Jill would teach her daughters to be positive. There was a particularly grim holiday in the summer of 1970. The family had just moved into Woodland Rise and Derrig didn’t think the family budget stretched to a holiday but after protests from the girls a late minute holiday in a caravan in South Wales was organised. The cleanliness of the caravan didn’t nearly match up to Jill’s (or indeed anyone’s) standards so the catchword ‘Yuck’ was added to the family lexicon and the holiday was relished. In the 1970s, Jill returned to work becoming a school nurse. The work was tough but rewarding and involved health education, social work and health check ups. She came home with stories about some of the families she used to visit and taught the girls never to be judgemental. She was always a thoroughly modern mum, who was up to date with the latest fashions, music and household trends. She loved cooking and trying out new recipes. Her recipe notebook includes such delights as Hungarian goulash, fried liver with Dubonet and orange, broccoli quiche with sesame pastry and vegetarian nut Wellington. She loved entertaining friends and kept notes of each dinner party to ensure that no guest would ever be served the same dish twice. She never stopped enjoying her holidays and when they retired in 1983 [Derrig was 61] they bought an apartment in Fuengirola and also travelled to the Holy Lands, Northern Spain and Japan. Jill had always wanted to be a grandmother but none of her feminist daughters seemed to be in any hurry to oblige. She’d almost given up when in 1992 her first grandson Jacob was born followed by Rosa in 1994, Jack in 1999 and Eve in 2002....

This tribute was followed by a few words from Jacob and Rosa on their grandmother. Paul Duckers also spoke about Jill’s involvement here at Holy Trinity. Kind, generous and compassionate, Jill was a loyal and faithful servant to Holy Trinity and all of us here will miss her greatly—Ed Page

Jim Exell—a tribute James David Exell (Jim) was born on December 30th 1946 in Erdington, and was educated at Banners Gate and Boldmere Schools. Jim’s father worked abroad within the oil industry in Africa which meant that his parents lived overseas and for a good while in Nigeria, whilst Jim was looked after at the family home on Monmouth Drive. Since the age of 10 years old, Jim could be dropped off at an airport in England then take 4 or 5 different flights to eventually to meet his parents at Lagos in Nigeria which helped create Jim’s independent and confident character. In the late 60’s Jim met Judith Bryant at a party and on 16th May 1970 they married at St Michael’s Church in Boldmere. Jim and Judith were blessed with the arrival of their first child Louise in 1973, Ruth in 1978 and finally with Sally in 1981. After leaving school Jim worked as an apprentice for Harry Wadecoat learning the trade of plumber. He then got a job at Fisher Group, through which he learnt all sorts about business and eventually he became Managing Director and then took over the company in the 80’s. During these years Jim and the family had somewhat of a Nomadic lifestyle, since they moved on average every 5.7 years! Whilst, the reason for moving so many times was work and family related but also Jim loved a project. He wasn’t a man who could idle time away. Each of Jim’s three girls shared special memories of their Dad, recounting his love for motor racing, his grandchildren and his encouragement for them to take on new challenges. Jim loved to push himself and make the most of the moment . He loved to travel, but even when on holiday he wouldn’t just sit still he had to get out and about. Jim never mixed his words or pulled any punches. If he thought something he would tell you. He never held a grudge and had a very generous nature. Sadly, Jim lost his battle with cancer in June 2013, aged 66. which seems a little short by today’s standards. However as Jim himself said shortly before his death, ‘looking back I know I’ve had a full life, even if only by experiences.’

The text above has been extracted with thanks from the eulogy given by Kelvin Price, Jim’s son in law at the funeral. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim’s wife Judith and their family —Ed 19

164th Birmingham (Holy Trinity) Scout Group 4th Sutton Coldfield (East) Scout Group Group Treasurer There are a number of support roles within the Group, one of which is Group Treasurer. Neville Benyon is the current Group Treasurer and has diligently undertaken his duties since 1982, not long after his son Edward joined the Cub pack. Neville himself was a Scout in Birmingham and although his son is now 39 years old he continues to support the Group and in April 2012 celebrated 30 years as Group Treasurer. Neville ensures that Uniformed Leaders do not have to worry about the Group’s finances, which means that they can concentrate on their work with the young people in the Group. In order to mark Neville’s dedication and commitment to the Group, David Evans, Deputy District Commissioner, presented Neville with the Chief Scout’s 30 years Service Award (2 badges and a certificate) at the Group’s Annual General Meeting in July 2012. Cub Pack The Cubs have been very busy having fun over the recent months and have been to Sutton Park where they enjoyed playing games, hiking and raft building. A summer favourite, District Cub Camp, was held at Beaudesert, this year with a spy theme. After Easter the Cubs were joined by a new Leader Clare, but sadly they had to say goodbye to Jenny, a Leader who has been with them for over 4 years. Jenny is moving to a new job in London and will be sorely missed at the 4th. Jess Underhill, Akela, has been ably assisted by Jenny, Sarah, Clare and Will.

Parental and non-uniformed involvement across all the Sections is vital to ensure that the young people in the Group find Scouting challenging, rewarding and fun enabling them to make the most of their Scouting years. Details of when the various Sections meet can be found in the pull-out section of this magazine. The Leaders, Dave (Beavers), Jess (Cubs) and Tom (Scouts) would be pleased to see members of the congregation on Section nights – just contact them first to make sure they are not meeting away from the Trinity Centre.

Confirmation 23rd June— Katie Parker, Helen Petley, Hannah Priestley and Katy Stephens (Holy Trinity)

We pray for the Holy Spirit to be with the newly confirmed. See photos on the inside back cover.

A few ideas to help us to enjoy the remainder of summer in the garden To keep a colourful display of plants in my borders, I will continue to ‘dead head’ regularly. A copious amount of rain has meant that some plants such as the dahlias and petunias have suffered with buds rotting before they have fully opened – make sure you pick them off to encourage new flowers. Any gaps in my borders I will fill with containers of small chrysanthemums and lilies which will last well into the Autumn. Sedum also works well. I have cut back my hardy geraniums to encourage a further flush of flowers. They always respond well with a wonderful display. While the soil is still warm, it’s a good idea to divide perennials so that they have the opportunity to establish themselves. Why not collect your own seeds too – it’s a great way to increase stocks of your favourite plants. Do this on a day when it’s not too breezy. I use small ‘dinner money’ size envelopes to store seed until sowing time in early spring. I have had a lovely display of blooms on my climbing rose and, during Autumn, I will prune the oldest woody stems out just above where new shoots are growing and then tie them in for support. Do you want to think about Christmas? Why not plant prepared hyacinth bulbs into bowls - a lovely idea for Christmas gifts. Use bulb fibre and push bulbs in to half their depth. Happy gardening,

Lynda King
