A Voice from the Vestry

During my lifetime there are some words that have changed their meaning completely. ‘Gay’ is a perfect example. It is a word that used to be used to describe something that was merry or light hearted, but now means something totally different. Some words that used to be exciting have now become associated with something considered boring. The word ‘Gospel’ is one of those.  It originally meant ‘Good News’. Now it is thought of as some pages in a dusty black book, written in old-fashioned English.  Perhaps if we renamed the Gospels, ‘What Jesus did’, they might be read more often.  Read one of the Gospels straight through, and you will be begging for more.  “What an exciting book”, you will say; but why stop there?  Did the story of ‘What Jesus did’ end when he was taken away from us into heaven?  The answer is a categorical no!  The sequel is the next book in the Bible, entitled, the Acts of the Apostles.  That too may sound boring! So let us call it ‘What the Apostles did’.

In church we read from the book of Acts, every Sunday in Eastertide, in our lectionary.  That is a long haul, and sounds a dull read, yet, in fact, it is a thrilling adventure story.  But what do you think of when you hear the word ‘apostle’?  Do you think of a jury of twelve grumpy old men, whose frozen mug shots are set in ancient stained glass windows?  Well don’t!  These were pioneer travellers, heroes willing to risk their lives for what they believed in.  The word ‘apostle’ means ‘missionary’. Let us call them ‘messengers’, people sent from their home church to carry the good news of Jesus to people who did not know that God loves them.  So you could call the fifth book of the New Testament, ‘What the Messengers did’.  Or even, maybe more accurately, ‘The Adventures of Christ’s Messengers’.

Do not let us stop there.  With Christian humility, the apostles would want to shift the focus away from them onto Jesus. What is important is not what they achieved, but what Jesus achieved through them, using the apostles as his agents.  So the book of Acts is a fitting sequel to the story of ‘What Jesus did’.  It is all about what Jesus did after he had ascended into heaven, working through his messengers. And that is exciting!

Take the adventures of Simon Peter. Yes, the same man who ran away when Jesus was arrested, and was so terrified he would not even admit to knowing Jesus even when a mere chit of a girl challenged him.  The first thing Jesus did with Peter was to turn the tongue tied bungler into a brilliant orator and debater.  After the disciples had received the Holy Spirit, Peter and John healed a crippled beggar in the Temple at Jerusalem, and then preached about Jesus to the curious crowd of onlookers that had gathered around them.  The priests had them arrested, accusing them of unauthorised rabble-rousing.  Peter replied, “We must obey God rather than any human authority.  The God of our ancestors raised up Jesus … God exalted Him at His right hand as Leader and Saviour, so that He might give repentance … and forgiveness of sins.  And we are witnesses to these things”.

So we see from the book of the Acts that the heroic apostles were brave when threatened, persistent in bearing witness to the resurrection of Jesus and obedient to God our Creator in all things.  Yet the achievement was not theirs, but God’s working through them.  So the story of ‘What Jesus did through the messengers’, turns out to be the promise of what God can do through you and me.

If we are loyal to Jesus our Saviour, and do our best to love God and our neighbour, then, like the apostles, Jesus will strengthen us.  He will help us to ignore the threats of those who feel themselves menaced by the message of repentance and forgiveness which we proclaim.  He will give us courage to speak out for what we believe, and the power of the Holy Spirit to love everybody equally.  Then the story of our lives will turn out to be the account of ‘What Jesus did through us’.  It is bound to be a story of high adventure, with a happy ending, in the next world if not in this one.


Burns Night 2013

This year Burns Night had to be postponed until February because of January’s ice and snow.

Burns night 1St. Andrew’s Pipe Band played to begin a very enjoyable evening.  After a delicious soup starter the haggis was piped in to be vigorously addressed by Alec MacPhearson.

The St. Andrew’s Pipe Band played as well as ever and Vicki Miles sang “The Rowan Tree” accompanied on the piano by David Carney.

The toast to the lassies was given by Jeff Law with a spirited response to the laddies by Jenny Hearn.

Burns Night 2The poem Tam-o-Shanter was performed, with magnificent sound effects, by numerous members of the assembly, some of whom had a struggle with the Scottish accent – what would Robbie Burns have thought of that?!

The evening continued with “Sangs and Clatter” accompanied by David Carney on the piano, with everyone in fine voice, and ended with an uplifting rendition of “Auld Lang Syne”.

There was a good atmosphere throughout the evening with much fun and laughter.

Service to the community.

On 21st March 2013, Mrs. Joan Marshall was awarded the Hampshire Good Neighbour Award in recognition of years of voluntary service given to older people in Hamble.  Joan has run the St. Andrew’s Café at the Priory Centre twice a month for over 12 years.

Joan was the only Hamble representative amongst the 44 nominees invited by Councillor Ken Thorber C.B.E. to a buffet and presentation ceremony in the Great Hall in Winchester.

The scroll and gift of two cut glass tumblers is so well deserved.

 Lent Lunch

On Thursday 21st March over 40 people enjoyed a lunch of soup, roll and small ploughmans.


The lunch, together with a raffle, raised £135 which has been sent to Two Saints’ Charity which helps the homeless in Southampton.

A quantity of men’s clothing, bedding, toiletries, tea, coffee and sugar, donated by parishioners, has also been sent to the Charity.

Thank you to all who helped in any way to make this possible.

Unwanted Spectacles

specs-2Spectacles that are no longer required are collected and sent via Wickham and Petersfield to join those to be forwarded by the Meon Valley section of Lions International to France, where French opticians voluntarily grade the spectacles according to prescription before they are forwarded to Third World Countries.  This year 158 pairs of spectacles were donated and joined a total sent of over 700 pairs.

In the 23 years that this collection has taken place over 1 million pairs of spectacles have been collected by the 50 participating Lions Clubs.

Thank you to all who contributed to this very worthwhile project.

 Quiet Day

10 of us got together for a Quiet Day at the beginning of Holy Week for a refreshing and peaceful day of prayer and reflection culminating in a celebration of the Eucharist in           St. Andrew’s Church.

 Passover Supper – Wednesday 27th of March

PassoverThe Annual Passover Supper was a very convivial meal with a celebration of the Israelites’ saving from death prior to their escape (exodus) from Egypt.

Some 40 plus church members and friends attended the supper with the service aspect of the evening, carefully interlaced with the serving of food, beautifully led by Father Bill.

The atmosphere was very relaxed with wine or cordial flowing accordingly and a nicely prepared meal commencing with pâté and a garnish, followed by lamb, boiled potatoes and salad with a dessert of strawberry top cheese cake. The latter was particularly nice for those of us with a sweet tooth, but not very kosher.  (Kosher foods are those that conform to the regulations of kashrut (Jewish dietary law).  Food that may be consumed according to halakha (Jewish law) is termed kosher).

Liz Jarvis is thanked for organising the event, always an onerous task, together with the culinary skills of Diana Richings and Jenny Hearn and the table setting arrangements organised by Kay Sparshatt.  Shopping was undertaken collectively by various supporters.

Those who stayed behind (Father Bill & his wife, Leah, Rosemary and the organisers) are thanked for the inevitable washing up, tidying up and packing away that follows such events.

Oliver and Lily are thanked for taking the important children’s roles in the Passover celebration.

Women’s World Day of Prayer

This year’s WWDP service was held at the Church of the Ascension, Netley Abbey, where Christians from all denominations on the Hamble Peninsular came together to join with women (and many men also) throughout the world to worship God.

This year’s service was prepared by the women of France and its theme was “I was a Stranger and you Welcomed me”.

It is easy to understand why this theme, chosen during the WDP International Meeting in 2007 in Toronto, was given to the women of France.  It will no doubt strike many chords with people in Britain, who live in a country which is not dissimilar to France.  Immigration is an emotive issue and the members of our congregations may well hold differing views about it.  The service challenged us to consider our own standpoint and our actions towards strangers as we remember that, in the words of the Talmud, ‘There are no strangers; there are only women and men who you have not yet met.’

Our Women’s World Day of Prayer services should always shake us out of our comfort zone, help us to see things in a new light and stir us to action. We should welcome people from other countries into our midst as fellow children of God. This apparently simple statement may raise many questions in the minds of some of the members of our congregations.  However, in God’s eyes there is nothing to question:

‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’ (Matt 25:40)

Joan Glue

            Parish Reader

St. Andrew’s Annual Church meeting on 14th April was well attended by over fifty members of the congregation.  The meeting was chaired by Helen Griffiths, Vice Chairman of the Parochial Church Council (PCC) as Hamble is currently without a priest.  The Area Dean,     Rev. Peter Vargeson also attended.

Reporting on the Accounts for 2012, the Treasurer explained the continuing challenge in getting sufficient income to pay our way.  We had just managed to balance the books in 2012 but this was mainly due to a generous legacy.

So far in 2013 regular giving is already £200 per month short of last year.  Cashflow is also a problem, with a significant portion of our income coming from weddings that do not peak until the summer months.

Elections were held to fill eleven vacancies on the PCC and the following new members were appointed :  Kay Baker, Ray Brown, Annette de Bary, Grant Hearn, Liz Jarvis, Phil Lidstone, Alan Midgley, Diana Richings, Peter Roberts, Terry Smith and Dawn Vickers.  Now that the new committee is in place, the lengthy process of recruiting a new priest can begin in earnest.

Ascension Day

Ascension Day marks Jesus Christ’s ascension into heaven.

Ascension Day is one of the earliest Christian festivals dating back to the year 68 CE. According to the New Testament in the Bible, Jesus Christ met several times with his disciples during the 40 days after his resurrection to instruct them on how to carry out his teachings.  It is believed that on the 40th day he took them to the Mount of Olives, where they watched as he ascended to heaven.

Ascension Day marks the end of the Easter season and occurs ten days before Pentecost. Depending upon the phases of the moon in a particular year, Ascension Day is usually celebrated on a Thursday (this year it is Thursday 9th May). However, some churches may choose to celebrate it on the following Sunday.

Many Eastern Orthodox churches calculate the date of Pascha (Easter) according to the Julian calendar, rather than the Gregorian calendar used by many western churches, so their Ascension Day usually occurs after the western observance.

What is Pentecost? 

According to the ancient Israel calendar, Pentecost is the Greek name given for the Feast of Weeks, a major feast celebrating the giving of the Ten Commandments from God to Moses on top of Mount Sinai.

In the Christian liturgical year, Pentecost is a feast celebrating the Holy Spirit’s descent upon the twelve Apostles. 

For the Eastern Church, Pentecost also refers to the entire fifty day period between Easter Sunday and Pentecost.

The word Pentecost means “the 50th day” because the Pentecost celebration occurs seven weeks, or fifty days, after Easter Sunday. Some Christians refer to Pentecost as the “Birthday of the Church.” 

 Thursday Fellowship continues to support Canine Partners Puppy Amelia

“Hello Friend,

Since you last heard from me I have been busy learning more commands.  It is like being at school really, and when I go to puppy classes, which I do once a week, I get to see all my doggy friends who are also training to be canine partners.  Although we have to work hard, showing how well we can walk to heel and demonstrating how we can carry out the core tasks of tugging, touching and retrieving, we also have fun and get some playtime.

Speaking of work, I am going to impress you now with some of the new things I have been learning!  Apparently they are the beginnings of what a fully trained canine partner would do for someone with a disability, so already I am on my way to being a really clever dog.  Throughout our puppy training our puppy parents are guiding us through bronze, silver and then gold level tasks.  It is a bit like doggy Olympics, I suppose, only we do not get a medal when we reach the gold level!  I have been working on the gold tasks which include waiting for five minutes, either sitting or lying down, while Jill, my puppy parent walks away.  I was good at that.  As part of the touch core tasks I have been progressing from touching a large object to a small X on the wall.  That takes a bit of encouragement by Jill with some tasty treat when I get it right.  This will progress later to touching buttons that call lifts, or at pedestrian crossings so will be very useful.  I have also been learning how to walk nicely next to a wheelchair, learning the various commands that will tell me what position I need to be in at any one time.  As I will probably be partnered  eventually with someone in a wheelchair, this is vital work.

Half way through our puppy training puppy parents have to swap puppies for a week or so to get us used to working for, and being handled by different people, but it can be a bit confusing for us.  I went to live with Heather while Jill went on holiday.  Needless to say, Heather and her family fell in love with me (who can blame them?) and reported back to Jill that I was a model guest.

After I returned to Jill I was taken to a fancy dress party with her – she was dressed as a shepherd and I was her sheep!  I did not even have to dress up for that!  Another event that I attended was in Chichester, where I had my photo taken lots of times and even met the Mayoress.  I think she was honoured to meet me.

Even though I look rather gorgeous in my jacket in the photo, unfortunately I really do not like wearing it and get a bit distracted with it on.  This will not be very helpful to my future owner, so Elaine, the puppy class trainer, is considering whether I should wear a bandana.  I approve of this as they look really cool!  Watch for the next update to see what I am wearing!  It is quite common with we Labradoodles (Labrador cross poodle) as the jackets tend to make our fur itch and it would not be appropriate for a fully trained canine partner to sit and scratch when out in public places!!

Very exciting news, I am coming to the end of my early stage training and will soon leave Jill to go back to the training centre where I will embark on the next stage of my journey to be a fully qualified canine partner.Amelia's-paw-print

Thank you for your ongoing support.”  

 The Voice from the Potting ShedPotting Shed

Welcome to the Summer edition of the Potting Shed.   As I sit at my kitchen table looking out of the window at my garden there has been so much heavy rain and strong wind, not forgetting the snow, frost and freezing temperatures.  Let’s hope by the time you read this the weather will have improved and we will not have a repeat of last summer’s weather.

For those of you who have Wall Flowers and Sweet Williams in your garden, the Wall Flowers should be in bloom, although some existing plants may have been in flower for some time already, and hopefully will continue to flower until late June.

Potting Shed Top Tip 

If you like to grow these plants from seed, now is the time to start thinking about sowing seeds for next year’s early summer bedding display.

Wall Flowers

Potting Shed favourites are:

  • Persian Carpet: good range of colours.  R.H.S. Award of Merit.
  • Siberian: lovely orange flowers R.H.S. Award of Merit.
  • Cloth of Gold: this yellow variety will help brighten up your garden on a dull day.

Wall Flowers prefer a sunny position.

Sweet Williams

Potting Shed favourites are:

  • Auricuia – Eyed Mix: lovely     salmon, scarlet and purple shades                                  R.H.S. Award of Merit. Good for cut flowers
  • Perfume Mix: lots of nice flowers Sweet Williams also prefer a sunny position.The Potting Shed prefers to start seeds off in large seed trays then transfer into individual pots ready to be planted out into the borders in the autumn. Alternatively they can either be sown straight into the soil in drills, to be thinned out at a later date, and transplanted to their final positions when ready.With two bank holiday weekends and the longer, lighter evenings hopefully we will have more time to spend in the garden.
  • The Potting Shed Reminder List For May and June: buy plants, if not grown from seed, to make up hanging baskets; for garden borders and containers ready to plant out when the risk of frost has passed.Gladioli always make an impressive display at the back of borders and are a good cut flowers.  Plant groups, or independently, between other existing plants.  It is a good idea to plant a few every fourteen days to prolong the display.Dahlias are another good choice for flower borders with many striking colours to choose from.  Normal flowering time is July to late October. As always follow the planting and growing instructions given with seeds, tubers and corms.Hope to see you on Saturday 15th June at the Potting Shed stall at the St. Andrew’s Summer Fête and The Potting Shed wishes visitors and exhibitors a very successful day, and, hopefully lovely weather.



Ginger Stephens – Global Super Star!


Ginger Stephens, photographed jumping by parachute from St. Andrew’s Church tower, has become a global ‘Super Star’ having attracted the attention of Janet Brien of Birregurra Anglican Church situated in South West Victoria, Australia.

Janet spotted Ginger’s article in the Christmas 2011 edition of New Waves magazine, and asked our permission to use the article to promote a ‘Teddy Bear Jump’ of their own as a fundraiser for the maintenance of the Bluestone Church.  We are glad to report that Ginger had no objections and he wished them well for their event which was held on 13thJanuary 2013.

As a result, we are pleased to announce the first annual ‘Teddy Bear Parachute Championship’ took place, without serious incident, at Christ Church, Birregurra, Australia.

Ginger Stephens has passed on  a press release he has received from his friends ‘down under’ which I am pleased to publish:

“On Sunday, 13th January, the first Annual Teddy Bear Parachuting Championships took place at Christ Church, Birregurra.


P1050389A goodly crowd of 49 bears of many sizes and ages and their families arrived on a perfect parachuting day to participate in this inaugural event.  There was a slight wind and some cloud cover which assisted both the bears to parachute successfully and the crowd to watch them drop.

Bears were lifted to the top of the tower in a special lift which rather resembled a laundry basket but which had been modified to ensure a safe arrival at the top.  Thanks to the traffic controller, Ron Bishop, who ensured that all bears were correctly belted in.  Members of the Birregurra C.F.A. were in position at top of the tower to receive and launch all parachutists.  This was done most efficiently and many bears made their landing reasonably close to the target area.  P1050412The C.F.A. made good use of their training in effecting rescues of several bears who were blown off course and we are pleased to report that every bear was able to return home with their families on the day with only one exception.  Tango’s rescue was a little more complicated but he spent the night with friends before going home.

We are happy to report that there were no serious accidents though our trauma nurse was kept quite busy attending to minor injuries.

Thank you also to Annette Wragg and Ron Eichler who were the official markers for the closest to the pin award. Not an easy task at times , with enthusiastic bears falling thick and fast.

P1050396The committee would like to thank most sincerely everyone who participated in any way to make the day such a success — the adventurous bears, the parachute makers, the picnickers. the C.F.A. sausage sizzlers, the officials, etc etc. It is planned to make this an annual event and we are already thinking about a bigger and better time next year.P1050431

Christine West                                               Christ Church Committee”

Well done Christ Church!  But how about next year arranging a challenge match to see who can raise the most money for a good cause or charity?

Perhaps we could use the ashes from burning the parachute of one of the loosing bears and send to the winners in a little urn – or has someone thought of something similar before?

“Wits’ End Corner”

Are you standing at “Wits’ End Corner”,
    Christian, with troubled brow?
Are you thinking of what is before you,
    And all you are bearing now?
Does all the world seem against you,
    And you in the battle alone?
Remember – at “Wits’ End Corner”
    Is just where God’s power is shown.
Are you standing at “Wits’ End Corner”,
    Blinded with wearying pain,
Feeling you cannot endure it,
    You cannot bear the strain,
Bruised through the constant suffering,
    Dizzy, and dazed, and numb?
Remember – to “Wits’ End Corner”,
    Is where Jesus loves to come!
Are you standing at “Wits’ End Corner”,
    Your work before you spread,
All lying, begun, unfinished
    And pressing on heart and head,
Longing for strength to do it,
    Stretching out trembling hands?
Remember – at “Wits’ End Corner”
    The Burden Bearer stands.
Are you standing at “Wits’ End Corner”,
    Yearning for those you love,
Longing and praying and watching,
    Pleading their cause above,
Trying to lead them to Jesus,
    Wond’ring if you’ve been true?
He whispers, at “Wits’ End Corner”,
    “I’ll win them, as I won you!”
Are you standing at “Wits’ End Corner”? 
Then you’re just in the very spot,
To learn the wondrous resources,
  Of Him who faileth not!
   No doubt to a brighter pathway
   Your footsteps will soon be moved,
   But only at “Wits’ End Corner”,
  Is “the God who is able” proved!            (Psalm CVII.27
