SSSSSSSSSh - Its Easter! from Revd Ann

SSSSSSSSSSSShhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh shall I tell you something? There’s to be an election next month? Oh did you already know?

 Like me no doubt, you have become a little tired of the same old subjects being talked about over and over again, promises, promises, all we have to do is vote on the big judgement day and everything will be just as we would like it to be.

Well maybe not, but even so I do hope you will use your democratic right and place a cross against someone’s name on 7th May. For if you don’t vote you will have no good reason to complain about the next government! Enough of my election soapbox.

This month of April begins with the wonderful days from Maundy Thursday to Easter Day, when once again we hear the same old subjects being talked about, Jesus washing his disciples feet, to show he came to serve others, Jesus sharing bread and wine with his friends and leaving us with a lasting memorial that week by week is re-presented in churches throughout the world, and Jesus having a cross placed against him and dying for you and me so that when the great Judgement day comes everything will be just as God would like it to be.

At our Easter Eve service in St Mary’s Great Wymondley the exclamation will be made;     

                                                                     ‘Alleluia Christ is risen!’ and everyone will reply ‘He is risen indeed, Alleluia!’   

 

The words have been said and sung over and over again at so many Easter Services but unlike election manifestos and party politics, the words ‘Alleluia Christ is risen!’ are words I never tire of hearing. God’s promise has been kept, love has conquered even death itself.

This time of year sees us busy in our gardens, the birds sing out, the hedges and trees come into leaf and the sound of the lawnmower is heard! Oh to be in England on a lovely spring day. Some of you will know that every Sunday afternoon I sit down and listen to gardener’s question time. Again and again the same subjects come up, the seed packets promise us success everytime, but we of course know differently. And how do you deal with slugs, expensive copper bands on the ornamental pots, grit around the hostas or special ‘slug pubs buried in the ground.  No, what they need is one of my ‘girlies’, there’s a whole new meaning to a hen party. Maybe that’s one party I would vote for!

I like to think my ‘girlies’ know the true meaning of Easter, their eggsclamation everyday, if we could just translate it, is I am sure, ‘Alleluia Christ is risen! (the vicar’s woken up and our food is on it’s way’).

I hope you will join in theirs and my song this Easter, at one of our churches, for as St Augustine sung all those years ago ‘We are an Easter people and Alleluia is our song’.

Much love

Reverend Ann

Support 'Wateraid- with Jars of Change!!

Support Jars of Change this Lent and turn your small change into safe water.

Our Lent Appeal this year in our Benefice of St Ippolyts with Great and Little Wymondley will be for the charity Water Aid. See www.wateraid.org/uk/lent for more details and to watch a video about their work and Lent Appeal.

Water Aid asks us - could you go without safe water for 40 days? No one should have to go without safe clean water. This year will you donate the money you save by giving something up for Lent to help bring safe, clean water to communities around the world?

Try swapping tea, coffee or soft drinks or beer for the clean tap water we have in the UK. Collect the money you save in a jar and bring it on Sunday 19th to St Ippolyts Church or Sunday 12th to Great Wymondley church, both services will be at 9.30am, You could have a different jar for each member of the family and see who raises the most!

March we forth!

March we forth...

‘God is working his purpose out as year succeeds to year’ is one of my favourite hymns, and it contains, the lines ‘March we forth in the strength of God, with the banner of Christ unfurled, that the light of the glorious gospel of truth may shine throughout the world’. In these cautious days those lines might be considered  to be neither very politically correct with their military undertones in marching, nor respectful of our multi-faith world, if it is suggesting that only Christianity has the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

And yet ... each and every Lent, just like this one, we March through Lent towards Holy Week and Easter, and we do it all in the strength of God. For we try our hardest to give something up, to fast from certain foods or fancies and in so doing call to mind Jesus’ forty days of fasting in the wilderness, in a way that we publically unfurl the banner of Christ for all to see, or do we just keep these things to ourselves?

The light of the glorious gospel of truth may shine throughout the world, if only we are bold enough to shine this light ourselves.

Now, in order to shine their best, my black shoes need to be lovingly polished every now and then. I know that they will get dirty in-between the polishing but still I religiously polish them for all to see. I remember my Dad every Saturday evening lining up all the shoes to be worn the next week, to church or to work, and his spending time making them shine for all to see.

Lent is really our opportunity to polish up our lives a bit, even though we know and realise that things will come along and make our lives dull and sometimes in need of a good clean up.

I learned my shoe polishing skills from my father. As Christians we should learn our life polishing skills from our Father who again and again dusts away our dross as he forgives us our sins.

The true banner of Christ was unfurled on that very first Good Friday, as Jesus said to His Father, ‘Father forgive them for they know not what they do’, Jesus didn’t say ‘Father when they come to their senses and repent, forgive them’ no! For the light of the glorious gospel of Christ was and is still for everyone to see. 

It’s just difficult to see sometimes because of the dust of our lives. So get polishing and praying this lent, for the party is to come, this Easter Eve in Great Wymondley. And I know I have said it before but if you have never been to the Easter Eve service before – where have you been! – does it take you that long to polish your shoes?

Carry on marching and polishing with love.

Reverend Ann.

St Ippolyts Churchyard Lichen Survey Report now available

Andrew Harris and Paula Shipway carried a lichen survey within the old churchyard surrounding St Ippolyts Church on 25th September 2015. Andrew has completed his report and a copy is available in our Church should any one wish to read through it. In addition a pdf copy can be obtained from Michael Hooper  (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Within his report Andrew has recorded over 100 lichens living within our churchyard and I would recommend having a look at his report as it clearly shows where the variuos lichens can be found. 

Lichens are dual organisms – a fungus enclosing an alga. Most lichenised fungi are dependent on the association and the dominant partner, taking over an alga to exploit it for the sugars it manufactures by photosynthesis. Though the alga may be capable of living independently, it also benefits from the partnership being able to survive in exposed habitats such as sun-baked headstones protected from strong light and desiccation. Nearly everything a lichen needs can be taken from the atmosphere or rainwater, so they require little from the substrate they grow on, though the chemistry and texture of e.g. stone or bark has a strong influence on the species which can colonise. For these reasons, lichens can be good indicators of the quality of the atmosphere and health of the environment.

In his conclusion Andrew stated- "Also, though nothing of exceptional rarity was found, this does not detract from the species-richness of the churchyard, or from the collective significance of particular species associations, most notably on stone and lignum. Churchyards such as St. Ippolyts are of county importance for locally uncommon species including those with very restricted and specific habitat associations such as Aspicilia calcarea requiring limestone of some antiquity and found here on the chancel windowsill. There is further potential for the future, both as a result of growing knowledge of what is already present and through the continuing colonisation of churchyard trees, mirroring the changing fortunes of Hertfordshire lichens."

Crib Festival 2014, a great weekend!!

P1020317 Citrus Fruit peel crib Ecuador Mary HooperWith over 120 cribs on display there was something for eveyone to see. This year our spectacular display had cribs of every type imaginable. There were cribs made of wood, clay, citrus peel, soap stone, beads, knitted ones, ones made of Filmo and wool, there was even an Angel made from a used aerosol can by a little boy in The Gambia.Some came from as far a field as Panama and Burma, in fact there were cribs from Ecuador, Panama, Wales, Spain, Belize, Tanzania, Gambia and Niger. Would you believe one was even purchased from Wilkos!!

A big thank you to the fund raising committee of Barbara Thomas, Jane Veasey, Mary Hooper and Lynda Garner for all their hard work in putting it all together and of course for all the helpers who came along either to make teas and coffees, general act as stewards, to lift in and out the heavy display boards, take money on the door or bake a cake to sell.

A special thank you to everyone who lent their precious cribs for the weekend, without them we would not have a crib festival.

It was pleasing to read comments from our many visitors who took the time to write in our visitors book. It is clear that our visitors really enjoyed the displays.

 

If you would like to see a sample of the cribs on display then have a look at the photo gallery on this web site. http://www.stippolytschurch.org.uk/gallery/crib-festival-2014

New Hymn Number Board

Thanks to the generosity of 'The Friends of St Ippolyts Church' we now have a new oak hymn number board in St Ippolyts Church. The old metal one which was originally made at St Ippolyts Foundry and donated Michael Skeggs has proved to be just too heavy to manipulate and it was felt we should have a lighter board which would be easier to lift up and down. The new board is certainly in keeping with our church and once again thanks to 'The Friends'.

Another successful Parish Hall Christmas Fair

What a manic two hours at the annual Christmas Parish Hall Fair. From the time of opening the doors at 2 p.m. to the finish at around 4.30 p.m. the hall was packed with parishioners buying raffle tickets, playing at the various tombola stalls, guessing how many sweets there were in a jar, trying to put marbles into a upturned flower pot, visiting Father Christmas in his grotto or just having a cup of tea and a delicious piece of cake. The St Ippolyts Church PCC had a tombola stall which was incredibly popular. Well done to Jane and Jennifer Veasey for putting all the prizes together and for Jane, Jenny and Mary for manning the stall. Your junior churchwarden was there trying to sell his Christmas Quiz Sheets. In the end the stall raised well over £160 half of which is for the Parish Hall funds.

“You should come to the Crib festival at St Ippolyts Church because there are so many different cribs that are put in each year !

There are at least 50 (usually over 100) if not more ,from the tiniest ,to a large church crib.
Some of these cribs have a long history ,and some will be new.
There are cribs that have been bought when people have travelled all over the world ! One crib is even made from orange peel !
You can also enjoy a cup of tea/coffee, cold drink and a cake !!!
I always look forward to this occasion at Christmas, because it is lovely to see every crib there, who entered them, and the history behind each one.
It's the start of the lead up to Christmas for me.
We hope to see you there.
