Most people who drive can remember their

fi rst car. For many it feels like an entry into

adulthood, a rite of passage, to have your own

set of car keys, your own set of wheels and to

drive off into the sunset (or at least down the M1)

with the world before you.

My fi rst car was a red Citroen 2CV. I have very few fond

memories of it. On cold and damp days you would have

to start it with a crankhandle whilst kneeling in the road,

possibly in a pool of oil. It lurched dangerously sideways if

you ever took a corner at 20mph. ‘Air conditioning’ meant

opening the vents to the engine and running the risk of

inhaling fumes. On the plus side, you could (after some

effort) roll back the top on hot and sunny days and whilst

WOODSEATS • SHEFFIELD

the car had very little luggage space, your could stick bookcases

vertically through the roof, although this made cornering really quite

scary. It could reach the heady speeds of 60mph downhill with a

following wind and at such times you could imagine that you were flying

a First World War biplane.

Sadly, after driving it for ten years, our car came a cropper whilst trying

to negotiate a large hill on the M40 near High Wycombe. Driving since

then has never quite recaptured the thrill of the open road, although I do

now drive with some confi dence that I will reach my destination.

There are almost 38 million vehicles registered on Britain’s roads.

That is approximately one for every two people in the country. Thankfully

not everyone drives their car at the same time, although travelling on

the motorways on August bank holiday can certainly feel like they do.

Driving, which 50 years ago used to be a leisure activity undertaken for

fun, now feels more like a stressful chore. I prefer travelling by train,

although that is not always a hassle-free experience.

Our love affair with the car is undergoing a dramatic change. We are

even more aware now than we have been of the polluting dangers of

these horseless carriages. Diesel engines are being rapidly phased

out, electric cars are expected to be the norm within 20 years and car

manufacturers in Britain are downsizing or moving away. Driverless

cars may be just a few years ahead.

Perhaps my experience of ten years of driving a tin-can-on-wheels

has made me jaundiced towards the motor car, but I don’t feel any great

lament at the prospect of its passing, especially if the decline in car

ownership resulted in greater investment in public transport

(though I’m not holding my breath). The advent of the

automobile gave humans great freedom at a terrible price

to our health and environment. If a cleaner, greener and

healthier future could be made possible through new

technology and a change in human behaviour then that

surely is something to be welcomed.

Life in the Cockpit

Chris Jones is a pilot with

British Airways. James

Norris asked him about his

work...

When did you know you wanted to be

a pilot?

I think I’ve always wanted to fl y. I

considered many different career

options, but I always wanted to do

something with aeroplanes.

How long do you have to train

to become a pilot and what

qualifications do you need?

There are various routes to becoming

an airline pilot. The fastest, and probably

most popular, option is the integrated

Air Transport Pilots Licence course

where you get all the licences required

to fl y a commercial jet aircraft. It can

take only 18 months, requires no formal

qualifi cations to start, but is very tough

work.

So how does it work… do you fly

somewhere, and then fly back after a

few hours?

It varies. Depending on the lengths of

sectors (fl ights), I fl y between one and

four sectors in a day. I report for work at

the airport an hour before departure time

and meet with the captain (to discuss

the aircraft, weather, notices for airspace

and airports). We then proceed to the

aircraft and set it up for departure. Most

destinations I fl y to are one-and-a-half

to three-and-a-half hours away, but

between fl ights we are normally on the

ground for about 45 minutes before the

return fl ight. This allows for refuelling,

cleaning and for me to disembark the

aircraft, but not for sightseeing!

What do you like about your job?

There are so many great things about

fl ying! No two days are ever the same:

I fl y with different crews, to different

destinations with different weather. I’m

hugely privileged to get some of the

greatest views in the world, whether

it be crossing the Alps on a crisp

winter’s morning, seeing amazing cloud

formations or spotting constellations

and shooting stars when fl ying at night.

Getting a landing just right is also pretty

satisfying!

What is your favourite view from the

cockpit?

There are lots to choose from, but the

approach in to Heathrow over the centre

of London is hard to beat!

Do you have a favourite airport?

I love fl ying to lots of different airports

for lots of different reasons. The view of

Venice on fi nal approach is great and

Funchal airport with its runway built on

stilts always takes my breath away!

Church Office: Linden Avenue, Sheffi eld S8 0GA

Tel: (0114) 274 5086

Page 8

email: office@stchads.org

website: www.stchads.org


What don’t you like about your job?

There are definitely some

disadvantages to my job, the main one

is how it impacts my home life. Flights

do not stick to Monday to Friday 9-5, so

my working hours are far from sociable.

In the summer plenty of flights depart

before 6am and go right through the

night, and it can definitely take its toll.

The other big downside is that my

roster is only published two weeks

before the start of any month, making

it difficult to meet up with friends and to

commit to activities outside of work.

How many miles do you travel in a

year?

I track the hours I have flown rather

than the miles. But, I generally accrue

around 800 flying hours a year, so

assuming the plane travels around

400mph, then that is roughly 320,000

miles a year. That is a massive

approximation though!

Do you get to fly as a passenger for

free?

Not quite! We get given up to two sets of

tickets to use a year, but we have to pay

the tax. It’s still a great perk though.

What’s been your scariest moment as

a pilot?

The fi rst onboard announcement I had to

make during my training! It made me far

more nervous than the actual fl ying.

And the weirdest moment as a pilot?

This is a difficult one! It can be very

surprising to fi nd out what is in the cargo

hold: F1 components, Parmesan cheese

and dogs, for example.

And finally, the worst thing you’ve

ever eaten on a plane?

Generally, the food is pretty good.

Although my heart always sinks when I

see the mushroom frittata arrive on my

tray!

Easter is unusually late

this year. Because of the

complications of calculating

the date, Easter can fall

anytime between March 21

and April 25. This year’s April 21

date for Easter is the latest it has

been since 2000 when, unusually,

Easter fell on St George’s Day and

it will not fall on a later date until

2038.

The late Easter has meant some

oddities with school holidays in

Sheffield as the council recently

made the (probably

sensible) decision

to fix the holidays

rather than follow

the vagaries of the

Christian calendar.

The children will

have been back

at school for a

full week before

they then enjoy the

extended bank holidays

of the Easter weekend.

A late Easter also means that the

festival coincides with the height of

spring. The trees should be well

underway in growing their fresh

greenery and blossom. An early

Easter can, as it did a few years

ago, bring snow and a sense that

winter is still very much on us.

So this year, Easter should bring

with it all the resonance of spring,

new life and new hope that is

appropriate to the season. There

is a tradition in some churches

to have a bare cross throughout

holy week and then to festoon it

with flowers on Easter morning. A

traditional Easter hymn is entitled

‘Now the Green Blade Rises’,

linking the resurrection of Jesus to

the greening of the world in spring.

As is very well known, the

word Easter is not a Christian

word. It comes from the pre-

Christian Anglo-Saxon worship

of the goddess Eostre (the

Christian missionaries were not

embarrassed when it came to

reusing the old customs for new

purposes). The historical death

of Jesus at the time of the Jewish

Passover around 30AD coincided

with the spring customs of the

northern Europeans, and so it is

that Easter holds both Christian

and pre-Christian roots and

traditions.

The resurrection of

Jesus, which so

powerfully motivated

the first Christians

to travel and tell the

news of God’s love

to distant shores

and peoples, could

very naturally be

illustrated by the

processes of death

and rebirth in the natural

birth. Indeed, both Jesus

and St Paul used the metaphor

of a ‘dead’ grain giving birth to

something radically new when they

talked about the new life that God

brings.

In a world that is desperately

seeking hope, and seemingly

finding little, this year’s Easter may

bring an ancient reminder that out

of the darkness of winter, new life

grows.

As the above mentioned hymn

says:

When our hearts are wintry,

grieving or in pain,

Jesus’ touch can call us back to

life again.

Fields of our hearts that dead

and bare have been:

Love is come again like wheat

that springeth green.

Making Twenty-One Hops t

Twenty-one Hops to Nairobi

– I know that sounds like an

old movie title, but this is a

brief account of a Christian

organisation, which grew from

one man’s vision of peace at the end of

the Second World War and an epic flight

from London to Nairobi to establish the

world’s busiest humanitarian airline –

Mission Aviation Fellowship.

The visionary was Murray Kendon,

a New Zealand pilot with RAF Coastal

Command, who believed that if planes

could be used for war, they could also

be used for peace – to bring help and

hope to impoverished people in isolated

places and show them God’s love. He

also believed that his vision should be

carried out in partnership with overseas

churches and missions – a taskforce of

specialists serving God worldwide.

In 1944, Murray took his ideas to Dr

Thomas Cochrane, a pioneer medical

missionary in China and founder of the

Mildmay Movement, who asked him

if he could begin the project at once.

After much soul searching and praying,

it became clear to Murray that God had

given him not only the vision but also

the call to make MAF become a reality.

Jack Hemmings and Stuart King

The following year, he was demobbed

from the RAF and moved to the Mildmay

Centre in London. And in the dying

embers of World War Two, MAF was born.

Murray was joined there by other

ex-RAF officers: Squadron Leader Jack

Hemmings, who had won the Air Force

Cross in India, and Flight Lieutenant

Stuart King, engineer officer for 247

Fighter Squadron during the D-Day

landings, who learned to fly soon after.

Having considered mission fields as far

away as China, it was finally agreed by

all at MAF to start in Africa with a tenmonth

air and ground survey. Two years

later, on January 13, 1948, Jack and

Stuart took off from Croydon Airport in a

twin-engine Miles Gemini for Paris – the

first of 21 hops to Nairobi.

Each stop, of course, was for

refuelling, sometimes with layovers for

the pilots. From Paris, they continued

down to Lyon and Marseilles, then

across the Mediterranean to Corsica

and Tunis. Two days and five hops

later, they were in Cairo, where they

upgraded their radio transmitter for future

to Nairobi

communication in the Sudan from a

stall in the Muski Bazaar! After fi ve days

in Cairo, they crossed into Sudan and

fl ew on via Wadi Halfa and Atbara to

Khartoum. Their African survey was well

now underway.

Having intended to reach Nairobi via

Addis Ababa, Jack and Stuart fi rst fl ew

east to Asmara in Eritrea, where they

had to make an emergency landing

half a mile from the airfi eld. Reluctantly,

they abandoned their proposed route

over Ethiopia and returned to Khartoum,

reaching Nairobi, the last of fi ve more

hops, via Malakal and Juba – 27 eventful

days after leaving Croydon.

Now, 70 years on, Mission Aviation

Fellowship has become the world’s

largest humanitarian airline, with more

than 1,290 staff serving in over 26

countries and a fl eet of 109 aircraft

taking off or landing somewhere on the

planet every four minutes!

And all from the God-given vision

of one man, the late Murray Kendon,

and the faith, prayers and support of

thousands more.

Films Put the Focus on

So many classic feature films

have been made involving

various modes of transport

as the theme. Just at random

they include Murder on the

Orient Express, On the Buses and

Those Magnificent Young Men in their

Flying Machines. The list goes on and

on. Films about racing cars, motorcycle

hoodlums and the aversion of disaster

in mid-air abound. There have also been

17 feature films about the sinking of

the Titanic plus 25 dramas on TV. The

viewing public is obviously gripped by

what happens when we travel.

There are also lots of film

documentaries which cover transport.

The most famous is Night Train. It is

75 years since the ground-breaking

documentary film about the mail train

from Euston to Scotland was first

screened. The 23-minute film covered

a routine subject, but succeeded in

capturing the public’s imagination with a

Benjamin Britten score and featuring a

now-famous WH Auden poem. It is often

shown on TV.

One of my favourite movies is Bicycle

Thieves. I first saw it when undertaking

a film studies course at the Showroom

Cinema around 20 years ago. Since then

I have watched it at the cinema and at

home on DVD. Bicycle Thieves is a 1948

Italian drama film directed by Vittorio De

Sica. The film follows the story of a poor

father searching post-Second World

War Rome for his stolen bicycle, without

which he will lose the job which was to

be the salvation of his young family. His

son also tries to help. A heart-warming

film, Bicycle Thieves is widely regarded

as a masterpiece of Italian

neo-realism, a movement which began

with Rome, Open City in 1945 and which

attempted to give cinema a new degree

of realism.

An unusual film about a small boat is

All is Lost starring Robert Redford and

made in 2013. What is unusual about

this is that Redford is the only actor and

that there is very little dialogue in the

movie. In the middle of the Indian Ocean,

Redford, a lone sailor, wakes one

morning to find that a shipping container

has fallen into the sea and his boat has

collided with it causing a hole in the

hull. The film tells the story about how,

alone, he attempts a repair and then how

he tries to survive the elements with a

damaged vessel. Amazingly most of this

film what shot in a studio.

Films about cars with names feature

throughout movie history from Disney’s

Herbie through to Stephen King’s

Christine and the old British favourite

Genevieve which I saw in the cinema in

the 1950s. Road movies feature long-

distance travel and are a favourite with

fi lm-goers. Easy Rider springs to mind

but that featured motorbikes and usually

the mode of transport is the car.

Little Miss Sunshine, an independent

US fi lm which won several awards is

a road-movie featuring a family group

who are travelling in a Volkswagen T2

Microbus, which falls to bits as they go.

The family are taking their little girl to a

beauty pageant which she has set her

heart on. They travel from Albuquerque,

New Mexico to Redondo Beach,

California. Their adventures on the way,

and the interaction of the characters are

hilarious. The fi lm was made in 2006 and

will be enjoyed for its offbeat appeal. A

very funny fi lm.

I think that what appeals to movie fans

about fi lms involving transport is that

they move along at a fast pace, there

are usually mechanical failures and

problems on the journey and there is

plenty of opportunity for romance among

passengers. Keep the audience awake!

The Sights and Sounds f

Nenya is the Ring Of Water

from Tolkien’s Lord of

the Rings and is also the

traditional Norfolk Broads

design four/fi ve-berth cabincruiser

we call our mobile second

home.

She tows a Lugsail and an

Access303 (Hansa 303) dinghy, and

her permanent mooring is at Hoveton

on the River Bure.

We bought it in 2002 from the

grandparents of two of our godchildren

who had previously allowed us to

take her out on our own. This had

been an occurrence so rare that

another boat owner asked

where her owner was.

The fi rst things we had

to do were Boat Safety

Scheme improvements.

These included hot air

heating instead of radiant

gas, and a new loo and

water tank. Over the

years we added mains

electric plug-in facilities and

an immersion heater – for

hot showers in the morning and

fewer worries about fl at batteries.

Then in 2015 the wheelhouse was

replaced, and rotting timber and

decking renewed at Swallowtail

Boatyard on Womack Water. This

time we were able to share the work,

providing the unskilled labour and

initially cleaning and anti-fouling

the hull (I looked as if I’d had a blue

rinse!). Later we did more interesting

and constructive jobs.

Since retiring we’ve aimed to spend

60 days a year cruising the Northern

Rivers and Broads if we only have

about a week. The Southern Rivers

and Broads need ten to 14 days – to

get there takes eight hours’ steady

motoring through Great Yarmouth and

Breydon Water and has to be timed

to coincide with slack water at Great

Yarmouth. Starts at 6am are not

unusual!

Members of our family join us

regularly, the youngest even managed

to fall in, fi ve minutes after arriving!

A bird-watching highlight of 2018,

crossing Breydon Water,

was Shelduck

ducklings in a group

of 25 with only

two adults (we

from Nenya

must be in a crèche). There were

also two bittern sightings, otters

playing, grass snakes swimming

and seals on the coast – all

recorded in the daily log.

Other highlights include sailing

together in the dinghies – passage

sailing while Nenya is helmed to

the meeting point by the other one

of us; sailing with the Waveney

Sailability club on Oulten Broad

in my Access303; and acting as

mother boat for Broads Adventure.

We have also enjoyed visiting

and worshipping in churches within

walking distance, good food, new

friends, wide skies and getting

caught in thunder storms. These all

make our life on Nenya exciting.

Services Our City’s at St Chad’s Trams

Sheffield has a long history

of trams travelling through

its valleys and up its

seven hills.

The first horsedrawn

tram served the city in 1873 and

ran between Lady’s Bridge and

Attercliffe, later being extended to

Brightside and Tinsley.

Soon afterwards, new routes

were added to Heeley, where a

tram depot was built, as well as

Nether Edge and Hillsborough.

Electric trams arrived in Sheffield

at the end of the nineteenth

century and by 1902 all the routes

were electrified.

In our area of the city, tracks

ran to Woodseats, Meadowhead,

Millhouses and Beauchief.

In 1927, the Beauchief and

Meadowhead lines were joined by

track laid along Abbey Lane.

Sheffield Tramway Company’s

original horse drawn tram network

was nine-and-a-half miles long.

At its greatest extent, a reported

100 miles of tram routes were

operated by Sheffield Corporation,

which had taken over the tramway

system in July 1896.

The last route, Beauchief to

Vulcan Road, closed on the

afternoon of Saturday October 8,

1960. An illuminated car, followed

by a procession of 14 trams,

carried passengers and council

dignitaries from Beauchief to the

Tinsley depot.

Eight of the Sheffield trams are

now at Crich Tramway Village in

Derbyshire. Other trams are at

Beamish and the South Yorkshire

Transport Museum.

Thirty-four years later, in March

1994, Supertram arrived in

Sheffield at a cost of £240m, the

first line opening to Meadowhall.

Now there are four lines, and a

new tram-train sharing the railway

line to Rotherham.

There have been many

calls for the tram route

to be extended west,

covering Abbeydale.

Maybe one of these

days the trams will

return to Woodseats and

Beauchief – we will have

to wait and see.

The Sheffield 510

tram – Sheffield’s last

tram – now at Crich

Tramway Village in

Derbyshire with the

destination showing

as Meadowhead,

Woodseats Road

(Millhouses).

Transport in Biblical Times

Transport options today

are linked to a number of

factors: wealth, geography

and infrastructure, to

mention a few. Given

suitable finances, in Sheffield, I

could travel by bus, tram, taxi or

train. It wouldn’t take long to get to

an airport either. Where I grew up,

in a small village, one bus came

through a few times a day. In

places like Vietnam, cars are too

expensive for many, so scooters

and motorbikes are the preferred

form of transport.

In biblical times, transport

options on land were

obviously a lot more

limited: by foot or by

animal. Travelling was

hard work and took a

long time. The climate

was generally warm

in biblical locations,

so it was tiring and

plans for water

stops (at wells

or springs) were

necessary. It

was dangerous

too, due to

wild animals and

robbers.

Oxen are slow, but powerful

animals, and were used to pull

carts or wagons. Camels were

used for long distance travel and

transportation of goods in the

desert and hot places, due to their

strength, natural protection from

the elements, and not needing to

stop regularly for water. Horses

were expensive, generally only

used by kings or armies, and

would be used to transport

soldiers or pull chariots.

Donkeys are mentioned

throughout the Bible as a

means of transportation. The

most amusing incident, and

well worth a read, is the story of

Balaam travelling on his donkey

in Numbers 22. Balaam is not

paying attention to God and so

God allows the donkey to speak!

Other stories are probably more

familiar. In the story of Joseph, the

dreaming, coat-wearing favourite

son of Jacob, his brothers come

to him from Canaan to Egypt on

donkeys to collect grain due to

famine (Genesis 42-44). One of

Jesus’ most famous stories, the

Parable of the Good Samaritan,

involves a man travelling from

Jerusalem to Jericho. He

gets attacked and beaten

by robbers and left for

dead. It is a kind

stranger with a

donkey who takes

him to an inn and

cares for him

(Luke 25).

Jesus also rides

on a donkey, and

that story links

us with this time

of the year. Palm

Sunday (April

14) is where the

church remembers Jesus coming

into Jerusalem as a humble king,

not on a powerful horse, but

on a donkey. Here people laid

down cloaks and branches on

the ground (Matt 21). This begins

what is known as Holy Week,

including Good Friday (April 19),

where Christians remember the

death of Jesus on the cross. But

Easter Sunday (April 21) is when

Christians remember Jesus’

resurrection. This is at the core of

the Christian faith, that Jesus died

and rose again so that humanity

might be reunited with God.

Travelling the Med with S

What was travelling like

in the fi rst century?

Uncomfortable! On

land solid Roman roads

enabled reliable travel.

Sea voyages were another matter. If

you needed to get to Alexandria or

Rome, you had to board a cargo vessel,

negotiate the fare, hunker down on deck

with no cabins or bed and breakfast

supplied. You were dependent on the

wind and shipping lanes were shut down

for four months each winter. Still, it made

your voyage a lot shorter – typically at

fi ve knots it took about a week to cross

the Med. from west to east.

Enter St Paul, missionary and traveller

extraordinaire. It is estimated he clocked

up over 10,000 miles. He and some

companions (sometimes with Luke

who kept a journal – the second part

of the Acts of the Apostles) made three

missionary journeys roughly between 46

and 60 AD. All of them were disturbingly

eventful. At fi rst, in Cyprus, he got a

good reception but once in Asia Minor

(Turkey) he experienced great hostility

(nearly stoned to death, fl eeing cities at

dead of night); beaten and imprisoned in

Greece all because of his preaching in

synagogues and market places – even

in the prestigious Areopagus at Athens.

Later he was arrested in Jerusalem and

at his trial, appealed to Caesar as a

Roman citizen. So began the perilous

journey by ship to Rome.

Ignoring Paul’s advice, the captain

set sail in winter from Syria. Soon they

encountered the dreaded ‘Northeaster’

and before long the boat was

shipwrecked off Malta. Only by jumping

overboard did Paul and crew narrowly

escape death. Once spring came, he

was off to Rome to await trial. Here we

lose track of him, but he probably came

before Caesar. Tradition says he was

martyred there.

Saint Paul

What made him travel so far? Was

he a diehard globetrotter? The answer

is an unforgettable encounter with the

risen Jesus. He was captivated by his

love in dying on the cross to save him

from being a persecutor to becoming a

preacher. You couldn’t silence him! He

had to share the Good News wherever

he went; that God could change the

most desperate people and bring them

hope. He also ensured that those who

responded, were cared for in loving

church communities where slave and

free were treated equally.

And he was willing to suffer extreme

deprivations, even death, to achieve this.

What an amazing traveller!

We Are All Completely Beside

Ourselves

by Karen Joy Fowler

This story is about the

refl ections of a young girl,

in an ordinary American

family, as she looks back

on her childhood.

We begin reading the account

of life in the Cooke family where

three siblings, Lowell, Fern and

Rosemary, are growing up.

At fi rst it all seems pretty

normal until you realise that this

family is not a normal family.

In fact, as a family, they are

extremely dysfunctional; the

children being used by their

parents as part of a very weird

social experiment.

Rosemary says her story

begins in the middle, as she

looks back on her childhood and

then her life up to the present day.

She describes how she comes to

terms with her strange childhood

and how she coped with the

disappearance of her sister Fern

when they were both fi ve years

old.

The twist in the tale comes early

on when Rosie makes a startling

statement and says: “but…of

course…you knew that...”

I found the ending of her story

to be cruel and heartbreaking. I

think that is why persevered up to

the end: I wanted to know what

happened. However, a few of

the group gave up on the book,

simply because it jumped about in

time and made assumptions that

the reader knew exactly what was

happening.

A cleverly written book which

covered lots of issues. See what

you think…
