One of the most ancient stories

in the Bible is the story of the

Tower of Babel. The story tells

of a time when all humanity

spoke a common language

and sought to build a tower into the

heavens. God saw the efforts of people

to become like gods and confused their

language, causing the building project

to be abandoned. The story stands as a

testimony to unbridled human ambition

and is a template for countless projects

of aggrandisement ever since.

Long before humanity took to the skies,

people have sought to build ever taller

and grander buildings. The ancient Israelites

in exile in Babylon would have seen the mighty Ziggurats towering

over the city unlike anything they had built back in their homeland.

The prophet Ezekiel prophesied against the prosperous port of Tyre

with its towers and walls dominating the trade routes of the Eastern

Mediterranean. And Jerusalem was no mean city, with the Psalmist

encouraging people to consider its walls, towers and ramparts.

Even in our own day where skyscrapers are ubiquitous and even

ruinous of our cityscapes we can still find our breath taken away by

the scale of architecture. We see this most clearly not in London

Docklands or Manhattan but in the small towns and cities of England

like Durham, Lincoln and Ely where a medieval Cathedral dominates

the land for miles around. Gargantuan buildings refl ect our priorities.

In a former age they demonstrated our faith in God. Possibly now

they demonstrate our reliance on international fi nance. In 500

years’ time will tourists be flocking to Canary Wharf or the Shard?

Somehow I doubt it.

The really significant things about buildings are of

course not what they look like but what the represent.

For the ancient Israelites the towers of Babylon were

symbols of oppression and conquest. For our

medieval ancestors the extraordinary cathedrals

told them of the majesty and glory of God. What

do our buildings tell us about ourselves? Are we

more drawn to the spires of churches than the

dizzy heights of skyscrapers, and what might that

mean for our priorities?

After the Second World

War and the resulting

bomb damage, there

was much discussion

as to which buildings of

special historical or architectural

interest should be conserved. The

Town and Country Planning Act of

1947 led to the drawing up of the

first list of ‘listed’ buildings in this

country. The older the building is,

the more likely it is to be listed.

All buildings built before 1700 are

automatically listed, as are most

built between 1700 and 1840. Any

property built 30 or more years

ago can be considered eligible.

The Department for Culture,

Media and Sport (DCMS)

has strict guidelines to which

applicants seeking possible

‘listing’ have to adhere, and

the criteria for being accepted

is complex. A building may be

considered if it’s of considerable

architectural interest, either

because of its design, its

decoration or its craftsmanship.

If a building is of special interest,

either because it’s an important

example of a particular building

type or design, and also if the

original plans are still available,

then it would be considered, too.

Any building having substantial

historical interest, such as a close

association with a nationally

important individual or revealing

important aspects of English

social, cultural, economic or

military history would be of

enormous interest to the DCMS.

Once an application has been

submitted, an internal inspection

of the property takes place. If

consent for listing approval is

granted, there is no charge.

However, there is a legal

requirement to preserve and

care for the building. Should the

successful applicant wish to make

any changes to the property, they

would have to make a request

to the Conservation Advisory

Committee and submit plans at

their own cost. The Conservation

Officer has the right to grant or

withhold permission if he or she

believes that any inappropriate

alterations would compromise

the status of the building. In

recent years there have been

reports in the media of people

making quite radical changes to

a listed property without seeking

permission. This is a criminal

offence, and they can been forced

to restore the building to its former

condition at their own expense.

Living in a listed home may sound

rather grand, but it certainly has

its responsibilities!

How many listed buildings

do you think there are

in Sheffield alone? A

dozen maybe, 25,

more than 50?

Actually there are

nearly 1,200! For

instance, there’s

the charcoal

burners’ memorial

in Ecclesall woods,

the Bear Pit in the

Botanical Gardens,

several mile posts

and sewer gas lamps

(whatever they are!) and

so on. Listed properties

don’t have to be houses or

buildings – any structure

which is of historical

importance and needs

conserving for the benefit

of posterity can be listed,

just as long as it has all the

necessary criteria.

Two artists who can be said to

have ‘painted the nation’ are

JMW Turner and John Constable.

Although contemporaries, they

were very different in character;

Turner being born in a ‘red light’ district

of London to a barber and wig-maker

father, and Constable into the family of

a land-owning corn merchant in Suffolk.

Turner never married (though he fathered

two daughters). Constable eventually

married the love of his life, although his

happiness was short lived as Maria died

of tuberculosis 12 years later, after the

birth of their seventh child.

Turner bequeathed many of his

paintings to the nation and they can be

seem in the National Gallery and the

Tate. In the north of England alone he

painted Fountain’s Abbey, Rievaux Abbey,

Scarborough Castle, Whitby Abbey and

many more. Perhaps his most famous

paintings in the south west of England are

of Salisbury Cathedral and Stonehenge.

Stonehenge is perhaps the strangest of

all his works – lightening rips through a

tortured sky and a shepherd lies dead, his

sheep killed, or scattered. The meaning

of this picture he leaves us to guess.

Constable’s painting of Stonehenge has a

double rainbow instead of lightening, but

is no less dramatic. A frightened hare runs

out of the picture, bottom left. This was

an afterthought. Painted on a separate

piece of paper, it was glued to the finished

watercolour – an early example of ‘cut

and paste’.

Turner reserves his rainbow for

Salisbury Cathedral, while Constable’s

most famous version is framed by Elm

trees. This picture was commissioned

by the Bishop of Salisbury who can be

seen with his wife, bottom left, admiring

the Nation’s Buildings

PHOTOS BY TIM FIELDS AND DAVE602 WWW.FLICKR.COM

Fountains Abbey and Scarborough Castle were painted by Turner

his cathedral. Turner excelled in painting

ancient ruins and great buildings

– famously painting the Houses of

Parliament while they burned, from a boat

on the river.

Constable preferred to paint the more

humble homes, farms and churches

of the countryside where he spent his

childhood. He also lovingly painted the

farm animals; sheep, cattle and horses.

In particular, he painted a dog, a little

nondescript dog with a curly tail and

fl oppy ears. In 1805, he skips from Willie

Lott’s House along the river bank –

Willie was a Suffolk farmer who lived his

whole 80 years in the same house. He is

present in all Constable’s most famous

paintings, including The Hay Wain, The

Cornfi eld and Flatford Mill. Old, thin and

shaggy, he is also present in Constable’s

last painting, Salisbury Cathedral From

The Meadows in which the artist reflects

on his past life. This picture is almost a

mirror image of The Hay Wain and there

are many elements of former pictures

in it. The White Horse and The Leaping

Horse from former pictures, help pull

the ‘wain’ (which here looks more like a

Roman chariot) past Willie Lott’s House,

now submerged in reeds and choked with

weeds, transplanted into Salisbury water

meadow. The cart is being pulled towards

the cathedral with its arching rainbow, but

the little dog looks wistfully back to ‘Willie

Lott’s House’.

The artist John Piper made Coventry

Cathedral famous when, in 1940, as the

official War Artist, he painted the still

smouldering ruins of the bombed ruins.

The pictures became iconic. Twenty years

later, he was commissioned to make the

Baptistry Window which now forms the

beating heart of the re-built cathedral. But

much closer to home, hardly three miles

from St Chad’s Church, Sheffi eld has its

own little gem of Piper’s stained glass. St

Mark’s Church, Broomhill was destroyed

in the Sheffi eld Blitz and Piper’s The

West Window of The Holy Spirit was

installed when it was re-built. Now, as

the westering sun strikes the glass, the

church is set ablaze with red, orange and

yellow tongues of fl ame which dance

upon the congregation, bidding them take

the light to the world.

A Vision for St Chad’s

I

am writing this in early

August. The building

works at the church have

been going on for a month

now and the place is a

mess. Outside on the drive is

a skip absolutely full of rubble

and detritus from the church.

The completion of the project,

scheduled for February 2017

still feels a very long way off. It

is a challenge to hold the vision

of the completed building when

the present situation is dust and

destruction.

But a vision there is, and it

is a vision that had driven the

tremendous generosity of the

church that enabled us to raise the

remarkable sum of £435,000. So

when the church is completed, what will

it enable us to do differently?

St Chad’s Church is just over 100

years old. Throughout its history it

has been altered and added to but

never with an overarching grand plan.

The result is a church building that is

dearly loved by those who worship but

which also has its quirks and is need of

considerable modernisation.

The most pressing need for the church

was to ensure that it was accessible

for all. We believe that God’s grace

and mercy are available to all and our

building needed to refl ect that. New

ramps inside and out will ensure that

the worship area and meeting rooms will

be accessible for those with impaired

mobility. New toilets are to be fi tted

within the body of the church, including a

disabled toilet.

Another need for the church was

fl exibility. Gone are the days when

a church building was only used for

Sunday morning worship. As well as

our two Sunday services (both of which

are very different in style) the building is

used by schools and for music concerts

as well as by a variety of church and

other groups. The building needed to

be able to accommodate these different

uses by increasing the number of

meeting areas, improving our kitchen

facilities and increasing the size of our

parish offi ce. A new mezzanine fl oor is

being built which we hope will provide

better space for our youth work.

But above all, the vision of St

Chad’s is to be a church that worships

and serves and the new building will

give us far more opportunities to do

this. I believe that the interior of the

church will look truly beautiful with the

font and war memorial relocated to

dedicated remembrance and initiation

spaces. There will be new lighting,

new carpets and better sight lines

intended to draw people into

worship of our loving God. And

the new kitchen and meeting

rooms will allow us to think

anew about how we can be a

church that is truly hospitable,

opening our building up for

the elderly, the vulnerable, the

lonely, the children and those

simply seeking space to pray

and refl ect.

I hope that once the project is fi nished

many more people will feel enticed and

invited into our building whether that

is on a Sunday to join us in worship or

throughout the week when the church will

be open to all.

Elephants

A

herd of elephant sculptures

descended on Sheffi eld’s parks

and open spaces this summer

to create one of the biggest art

events the city has ever seen.

The Wild in Art event brought to

Sheffi eld by The Children’s Hospital

Charity is raising vital funds for Sheffi eld

Children’s Hospital.

The interactive sculpture trail exists

due to the shared vision, creativity and

generosity of people across the city and

is a huge collaboration from our artists,

sponsors and school children – including

Abbey Lane and Meadowhead.

The trail has seen many people across

the city looking for the 130 elephants

using the Herd of Sheffi eld map and

phone app.

Rebecca Staden, fundraising manager

at The Children’s Hospital Charity

said: “We’re absolutely overwhelmed

by the support the Herd of Sheffi eld

has received. The project is bigger

and better than we could have ever

imagined and that’s thanks to the

generosity of the people from Sheffi eld

and further afi eld.

“It showcases our city and the

creative talent which exists today whilst

celebrating our heritage through this

world-class initiative.

“We’d like to say a big thank you to

everyone that has shared the herd

vision and helped bring this project to

life. Thanks to you we have created

something special for Sheffi eld and our

children’s hospital.”

The Herd of Sheffi eld all began 100

years ago. In 1916, on the cobbled

streets of Sheffi eld, an elephant called

Lizzie was employed in the steel industry

and inspired the herd we see today.

You’ll Never Forget!

Businesses, schools and

organisations were involved in the

project and sponsored each elephant.

Whilst the big herd grew, over 10,000

school children from across the region

helped create baby elephant calves.

The Little Herd was born by the 72

schools which decorated, stuck and

painted on their own elephant, raising

£46,000 for The Children’s Hospital

Charity at the same time.

The elephant calves were settled into

their summer homes in several indoor

locations around the city. Pictured

left at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet is

Abbey Lane School’s elephant which

they named Elvis.

Throughout the First World War

the city’s horses were enrolled by the

military. Lizzie the elephant played an

important role as she helped cart heavy

loads of steel and machinery for Thomas

Ward Ltd in the absence of the horses.

The company’s scrap

metal business

was essential to

the country’s steel

industry, which was

crucial to the nation’s war

effort.

Lizzie became a legend

and was loved by many

of her colleagues and

she became part of the

family.

Sheffi eld’s herd of elephants 100

years later was born because of the

shared vision of Sheffi eld’s businesses,

communities, artists, individuals and

schools bringing each elephant to life.

When I left my fi rst

Sheffi eld job in

1990, my team

generously collected

a small amount and

bought me a gift. It was In memory

of Sheffi eld’s Cinemas by Richard

Ward. They knew I was interested

in cinema and it became a book I

still treasure.

Sheffi eld has housed over 70

cinemas since the early part of

the 20th century. Many of them

have been pulled down, some

became bingo halls and others

now exist as supermarkets. The

Abbeydale Picture House is still

being refurbished and is being run

by trustees. It shows occasional

fi lms. I recently went to see West

Side Story. It was like going to the

‘pictures’ in the 1950s!

one of the busiest picture

houses was the Woodseats

Palace. This building is still

standing on Chesterfi eld Road

and exists as a Wetherspoons

pub, situated opposite the police

station.

Like many others, this cinema

was built to serve the growing

population of Sheffi eld’s suburbs,

and it was opened on September

4, 1911, with a programme of

seven short fi lms including

The Wedding on Horseback

and The Latest Motor Fiend.

The building was designed

and built in a record 12

weeks. The façade, which

incorporated two small

shops, was in white glazed

earthenware and two small

domes gave it an oriental

appearance.

There were 500 seats

arranged in a single sloping

fl oor, those at the front

being tip-up benches with

more expensive velvet-lined seats

towards the back. The colour

scheme was pink and white. The

ornamental plasterwork was by

Chadwick and Son of Victoria

Street, who were responsible for

work on a number of other local

cinemas. The fi rst manager of

the Woodseats Palace was Tom

O’Neil and it was owned by the

Woodseats Palace Company.

In the 1920s the cinema

was taken over by Heeley and

Amalgamated Cinemas Ltd –

there were three other cinemas

in Heeley. Major alterations took

place and in the 1930s a Western

Electric sound system was fi tted,

and also a balcony.

The Star Group bought the

Palace in January 1955, and the

fi nal programme, Slaughter on

10th Avenue and Taming Sutton’s

Girl was screened on September

24, 1961. The building was then

reconstructed as a store.

Here’s a fi nal interesting fact.

A picture from 1916 shows that

the fi lm on offer is A Western

Heroine but a poster tells us that

also available were Wesleyan

Methodist Sunday Services.

People across the country

have been busy raising

money for Macmillan

Cancer Support over the

past month as part of the

World’s Biggest Coffee Morning

event.

Now, Katy Watt from St Chad’s

has come up with a crafty way of

honouring the work of Macmillan

with a fundraising quilt.

The idea is that people contribute

a square towards the quilt which,

when it is completed, will then be

raffled off. Each square can be

stitched, sewn, knitted

or embroided.

There are two rules:

your square must be

25cm x 25cm allowing

for a 5cm hem (each

finished square once

added to the quilt will

be roughly 20cm squared) and it

needs to have a bit of green in – it

is for MacMillan!

You also need to stitch in your

name.

Give your completed square to

Katy or send it to The McMillan

Quilt, 72 Cartmell Road,

Woodseats, Sheffield S8 0NJ,

along with a £1 donation.

For more information contact

Katy at katywatt1986@gmail.com

or on 07933 486015.

Squares are needed by October

20.

Sending a Christmas

G

Our summer holidays will soon

be forgotten as shops and

television begin to advertise

the latest “must-have” toys

and gadgets for us to buy for

Christmas. Children will be leaving

wish lists around hoping we

will take up their hints.

Sadly this doesn’t

happen for every child.

I am a volunteer

with Operation

Christmas Child,

the charity run by

Samaritan’s Purse

which sends fun-filled

shoeboxes to needy

children around the

world. We work with

local churches and

charities overseas to distribute

the shoeboxes to children regardless

of their background or beliefs asking

nothing in return. The children may

be in schools, hospitals, orphanages,

homeless shelters of impoverished

neighbourhoods.

Like many other people I have been

snapping up bargains such as books,

pens, pencils, crayons, dolls, cars, balls

ready to fill my brightly gift-wrapped

shoeboxes. I will also include soap, a

toothbrush and toothpaste and finally

a hat, scarf and gloves, a soft toy and

of course, some sweets as well as a

donation of £3 towards transport costs.

These seem like simple things which

we and our children take for granted but

these shoeboxes will probably be the

only Christmas gift these children will

receive.

I am one of hundreds of people, who,

either individually, through schools,

churches and other organisations,

give time and a few pounds to help the

Shoebox Appeal.

The shoeboxes from Sheffield,

Dronfield, Barnsley and Rotherham are

brought into a warehouse in Sheffield

so that volunteers can check them to

make sure there are

no unsuitable items

included such as toy

guns, liquids, or clothing

other than hats, gloves

and scarves. If the box is

a bit “light” we will top it up

with the items donated by

supporters for this purpose.

After being sealed for

customs purposes, the

shoeboxes are packed into

cartons by age and gender ready

for export. During late November and

early December these will loaded on

lorries to begin their journey. Last year

our warehouse received and processed

17,170 shoeboxes which went out to

Swaziland, Romania and Latvia.

Gift of Love

From October, leaflets will be

available and completed shoeboxes

can be dropped off at:

• Greenwood’s DIY, 14-16 Abbey

Lane, S8 0BL between 9am and 5pm

Monday to Saturday

• Eggo’s Café, 26 Hutcliffe Wood

Road, S8 0EX between 9am and

2.30pm Tuesday to Saturday and

9.30am and 2.30pm Sunday

• Our 9am and 11am Sunday

services in Abbey Lane School.

If you would like to know more about

this appeal, or want to come along to the

warehouse to help check boxes please

contact me on 0114 274 9218.

PLEASE consider filling a shoebox this

year – We can’t reach all the children

but through this simple gift, we can bring

excitement to some.

The Wise and Foolish Builders

What’s your foundation

for life? If someone

were to ask you

what your life

philosophy was,

what would you say? Most people

who I speak to say something

like, “I’ve always done my best,”

or “I’ve sought to live life by the

golden rule”.

There’s a fairly

famous story

that Jesus told

commenting on the

foundations of our

lives. Jesus compared

two builders. The wise

man builds his house

on a rock foundation.

the rain comes down,

the winds blow and the

fl oods are raised up,

but the house stands

fi rm because of its foundation.

The rock is solid and means that

the house stands fi rm. The foolish

man builds his house on the sand,

and when the rain comes and the

streams rise, the house falls with a

crash. The sand is washed away,

and the house falls fl at. It’s one of

Jesus most famous parables, at

least in part thanks to many of us

singing a catchy action song about

it in primary school!

Of course, hearing a story like

that, we all want to build our lives

on rock; on good foundations. So

what are the good foundations

that Jesus is talking about? Jesus

says it is to hear his words and to

put them into practice. So what

does it mean to put the words of

Jesus into practice? Sometimes

people are surprised when I

suggest that “I’ve done my best”

or the “golden rule” is not the

centre of Christian teaching about

the foundations for

life. But at the heart

of the message of

Christianity is not

that we have done

our best, but that we

recognise that we

haven’t done our best

and are in need of

God’s forgiveness.

to be a Christian

is not simply to do

one’s best; it is to be

forgiven because we

can’t live perfectly. And if we’re

truthful with ourselves, we know

that we don’t always do our best;

we never do.

So what’s your foundation?

Jesus says the only solid

foundation is to follow him.

Rev Duncan Bell

“We all want to

build our lives

on rock; on good

foundations.

So what are

the good

foundations that

Jesus is talking

about?”

Seriously Playing with L

Lego is for kids, right? Or

at least, adults that never

really grew out of their

toys?

The Lego Group begs to

differ. In the late ’90s and early

noughties the Danish familyowned

company faced a serious

problem – how do you compete

with video games, and other

high-tech toys when your core

product is a plastic brick with no

patent anymore? This is a tough

question.

They realised they needed

to think creatively – and in

partnering with well-respected

academics they used their core

product – Lego Bricks – to

facilitate creative workshops

around difficult to answer

questions. In one sense, the

fact that they used Lego didn’t

matter – it’s a medium through

A Lego Serious Play workshop

sessions involve the participants making ‘double helix’ of DNA in order to help

models that embody their perspectives, them puzzle out its structure.

In a Lego Serious Play

workshop, the facilitator

should strive to create Flow

done in the preparation

(coming up with the

questions to guide the group

and ultimately something

innovative), but also with

interpersonal skills, and

managing the people in the

group.

Lego Serious Play has

been quite the success. The

Lego Group developed the

open source. This means

that anyone can look at

the process and build on it.

There is also a certifi cation

process is available for all to study and

apply to their situation.

I have used the process to help an

NHS community team develop a new

strategy; to help a group of people living

and engineers; help frame academic

research; and help medical technology

to put some Lego together, or stack

as child’s play – it’s just as valid and

useful as adult’s play.

A Gathering Light

by Jennifer Donnelly

This book is a work of

fi ction cleverly intertwined

with the events of a real

story. It

is set in

North America in

the early 1900s

and charts the

transition from

late childhood to

early adulthood

of three friends.

Mattie Gorky

is the central

character. She is

a bright girl with

a strong desire

to learn but is

forced to take

responsibility

for her siblings

and help with

the running of

the farm after

the death of her

mother.

She eventually persuades her

father to allow her to work for

the summer at a hotel on Big

Moose Lake. Here she is given

a package of letters to burn by

Grace Brown which she fully

intends to do. When Grace is

found drowned in Big Moose Lake

the next day Mattie is puzzled

by centring events and begins to

read the letters.

As Grace’s story emerges it

causes mattie to review her own

hopes and dreams as well as her

relationships.

The story is

interwoven with

the social ethos

of the times; the

prejudice against

black Americans,

the expectations

of women to run

the home and the

lack of power they

have over their

own destinies and

dreams, as well as

the effects of the

class structure on

society.

the book is

beautifully written

and I found

it completely

engrossing.

the character

development is believable and

elicits an emotional response

in the reader. I really enjoyed

this book and would thoroughly

recommend it.

For Weddings

and Funerals

You don’t have to be a churchgoer

to have a wedding in church or

be ‘religious’ to have a dignifi ed and

meaningful funeral service at St Chad’s.

If you live in the Woodseats or

Beauchief area, St Chad’s would be

delighted to help you, whether it is

planning the Big Day or saying goodbye

to a loved one.

For weddings please contact St Chad’s

church offi ce. For funerals please tell

your funeral director that you would like

to have a church service.

• If you have had a new baby and would

like to celebrate that baby’s birth with

a service in church then please come

to one of our thanksgiving and baptism

mornings at St Chad’s.

The morning will explain the difference

between the two services and give

parents an opportunity to ask any

questions.

Please call the church offi ce on 0114

274 5086 if you are interested in

attending.
