On September 8, after 13 years of faithful

ministry, the rector of St James’ Church

in Norton, Fr Geoffrey White, retired.

Due to the restructuring of the Diocese of

Sheffield there is no full-time replacement

available for St James and so I will be taking on

the role as priest-in-charge (effectively acting

vicar) for the foreseeable future. This will be in

addition to my present role as vicar of St Chad’s.

As many of Impact’s readers are likely to know,

fitting two jobs into one working week defi es

mathematics and so my own role at St Chad’s will

need to be reconfi gured as I move from full time

to effectively half time. Two Sundays a month will now be spent at St

James’, with the remainder at St Chad’s. Many midweek commitments

will now have to be scaled down or delegated to others. Thankfully St

Chad’s is a church with a long history of congregational involvement and

there are many able and willing members who can take on roles that

would previously have been thought of as the vicar’s job.

I have spent some of the past couple of months learning about

leadership in non-church environments - the commercial, government

and charity sectors and vastly different though some of these

organisations may seem, it is clear that no working environment is free

from radical change, restructuring and re-organisation. Usually this

means fewer people being expected to do more work, or to work in

supposedly more efficient and economic ways. I don’t know whether to

take comfort that the church is not alone in our struggles, or to despair

that all areas of work seem to be under increasing pressure and stress to

meet targets, to up our performance and justify our existence.

Despite all of this, one thing that I am convinced of is that work is a

good thing. Yes, I know that working on zero-hours contracts, working

excessively long hours or doing repetitive and seemingly value-less jobs

is demoralising and stressful. I am not saying that every expression of

work is good, but that work itself is a good thing. At its best work gives

us a place in society, a sense of worth and dignity and comradeship with

others. Most people I know, including Fr Geoffrey, who are approaching

retirement do so with some regret at the working life they are leaving

behind.

I have always been a fi rm believer that work has a divine purpose.

This is no more true for me now as a vicar than it was when I was a

solicitor or (even!) a banker. The book of Genesis puts work at

the heart of God’s purposes for humanity and when I have

felt grumpy about what I do I remind myself I do not work

solely for my own benefi t but for the broader community in

which I live. For everyone who fi nds Monday mornings a

struggle, or their working hours too long, I pray that you

too may fi nd a deeper purpose in what you do and take

comfort from that.

Sharing God’s Love at

H

As a Christian I have always

found Halloween a diffi cult

subject, and so my attitude

towards it over the years

has varied. Initially, I

thought it was highly suspect and

that I should have nothing to do

with it, then I was challenged

and thought, ‘let’s just go with

it and join in’, but this didn’t fi t

comfortably either. It’s impossible

to sit in the dark and pretend

you’re not in whilst the doorbell

is constantly ringing, so we tried

going out for the evening, but both of

these options felt like cop outs.

Finally, one year, I sat down and

decided to do a bit of research….

Halloween as we know it has its

origins over 1900 years ago in a

pagan Celtic festival called Samhain,

which marked the end of the harvest

season and the beginning of winter. It

was when the souls of the dead could

supposedly mingle with the living.

Spirits were appeased with offerings of

food and drink, in the hope that family

and livestock would survive the winter.

People would dress as demons and

spirits in order to disguise themselves

and escape possible persecution

from these lost souls. With the arrival

of St Patrick and other Christian

missionaries, it lost its popularity, as

the population began to convert to

Christianity. Instead of eradicating

Samhain or “Halloween”, the church

took such holidays, and, with a

Christian twist, made an effort to bring

paganism and Christianity together,

making it easier for people to convert to

the state religion.

This was all very interesting and I

could more easily understand how

Halloween had developed into what it is

today, but what was God saying to me

about it now?

Philippians 4:8 in the Bible says,

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever

is true, whatever is noble, whatever

is right, whatever is pure, whatever

is lovely, whatever is admirable – if

anything is excellent or praiseworthy –

think about such things.”

I considered what Halloween was

celebrating….was it uplifting, pure and

lovely, or did it bring to mind fear and

darkness? How could I, at this time of

year, authentically meet with and bless

my neighbours, whilst reaching out with

the good news of the light and hope

that Christ brings to our dark world?

It was then that I came across UCB’s

Bag of Hope. Ideally suited to 4-11 year

olds, it is an alternative option to give to

Halloween

trick or treaters, and consists of a bag

with a full colour Bible-based booklet,

The Bible App for Kids Book of Hope

and room enough for a few sweets

with which to bless the recipients.

As well as distributing these, I have

had some great conversations, with

children and adults alike, about my

pumpkin carvings. My fi rst year I

did ‘Hope’, but last year I actually

managed ‘Jesus’!

American pastor Phil Wyman

believes that, “Halloween is a unique

time when doors are thrown open,

people welcome strangers and there

is a willingness to talk about spiritual

things like good and evil, heaven

and hell, angels and demons, and

embark on conversations of meaning

that can be tied to the gospel.” Now,

rather than dreading the day, I can

embrace this God given opportunity

to authentically share His love with

others.

When giving dietary

advice to my

patients, I have never

suggested eating

more orange foods,

but it wouldn’t be bad guidance if I

did. Orange foods include peaches,

carrots, pumpkins, sweet potatoes,

oranges, apricots, mangoes,

prawns, salmon and many others. In

cooking, orange colour and aroma is

provided by spices such as paprika,

saffron and turmeric.

The humble carrot originated

in Asia in the region around Iran

1000 years ago, and their modern

descendants are purple or yellow

in colour, with branched roots. The

‘western’ carrot came to prominence

in the Netherlands in the 17th

century, with some theories that the

orange colour was bred to celebrate

the House of Orange. The colour

itself derives from high levels of

beta-carotene, which is converted to

vitamin A in the body. Only a small

amount is absorbable from eating

raw carrots – so cooking carrots

improves their nutritional value.

Can carrots help you see in the

dark? Only if you are deficient in

vitamin A (which is rare). This myth

was created by the British military

in WWII as a reason for fighter pilot

successes against the Luftwaffe,

and as a way of encouraging carrot

production during the Dig for Victory

campaign. It worked though – a

huge surplus of carrots was grown

as part of the war effort.

But orange isn’t the only colour,

and we should aim to ‘eat the

rainbow’: fresh red tomatoes, orange

carrots, yellow peppers, green

broccoli, blueberries and purple

aubergines. However, I do advise

avoiding grapefruit if you are taking

medication to lower cholesterol or

thin the blood – grapefruit can affect

how these drugs work in the body.

Also, fruit is best eaten solid – avoid

pure orange juice as this has very

high levels of sugar and none of the

fibre benefits of a whole orange.

There is increasing evidence

that such a varied intake of fruit

and veg really helps the balance

of bacteria in the bowel (known as

the Microbiome). Gut health is now

linked to health problems including

depression, obesity, diabetes and

irritable bowel syndrome. See

https://cleverguts.com for more

about this fascinating area.

Are there any food colours we

shouldn’t eat? Well, beige and

white are often associated with

processed, high sugar foods which

are not so gut friendly – we should

really be reducing the amounts of

pasta, potatoes, bread, cakes, buns

and pastries we consume. So do

yourself a favour, try a different

orange food each day and eat the

rainbow each week!

The Wall

During Easter 2004, Richard

Gamble, former chaplain to

Leicester City FC, was carrying

a cross around Leicestershire to

lead people to think about Jesus.

When he asked God what to do next, he

was given a vision for a wall to be built

of one million bricks, each linked to an

answered prayer. Having prayed over that

for another ten years, he fi nally felt the

nudge to start acting on it.

In April 2016, through a crowdfunding

campaign, 772 donors raised £45,000 for

a website for the Wall of Answered Prayer

and an international competition to design

it run by the Royal Institute of British

Architects.

Two months later, the website was

completed and ready to capture one

million answered prayers. By the end

of that year, 133 entries to the RIBA

competition – from 23 different countries

– had been narrowed down to four

fi nalists by the expert panel of judges plus

one public vote winner. Their concept

designs were unveiled in February 2017

at a parliamentary reception in London

hosted by the Rt Hon Stephen Timms MP,

a member of the judging panel.

Six months before the idea of the

Wall was given to Richard Gamble,

a landowner had also received

a vision to fund a national

landmark about Jesus.

In January 2018, the

landowner donated ten

of Answered Prayer

acres (4.05 hectares) in a prime location

near the M6/M42 junction, below the

flight path serving Birmingham Airport.

Following the unveiling in London,

the RIBA competition continued, with

the final five architects adapting their

designs to the specifi c landscape.

In May this year, the winner was

announced – Snug Architects of

Southampton.

Their concept, inspired during a

time of prayer, is a Möbius strip, a

surface having only one side and one

edge, formed by twisting one end of

a rectangular strip – in this case one

million bricks – through 180 degrees

and joining it to the other end. Thus, it

is a surface without beginning or end,

which speaks of God’s eternal and

triune nature and ensures that the wall’s

message of his goodness unifi es and

inhabits the whole structure.

Visitors to the wall will be able to

interact with the answered prayers in

one of three ways. A mobile phone app

will either bring up the written story of a

specific prayer or its video, or the prayer

will be experienced through a Virtual

Reality reenactment with an onsite VR

headset.

Also on site will be a

24/7 Prayer Room, a

park area for prayer

and refl ection,

trained chaplains

providing support,

a café and a Christian bookstore.

The overall budget for the Wall is £10

million – all from private investment,

since the project will not take any money

from the public purse. Some will come

from major donors and some from

crowdfunding, which those involved in

the project believe ‘is at the heart of

the wall, as there is something special

about building a national landmark

that is funded by tens of thousands of

people.’

Entry will be free and all profi ts raised

from its ongoing operation, including the

bookstore and car park, will fund one

million bricks for social housing – 75 per

cent in the UK and 25 per cent abroad.

In August this year, the planning

process began, at an estimated cost of

£384,000. However, with various people

donating their relevant skills, this has

now been reduced to £210,000.

While around 13,000 answered

prayers have already been gathered in,

and a further 137,000 are anticipated by

the time the Wall is completed in 2022,

the remaining 850,000 will be added in

the years that follow. Of these, 75,000

will be stories of answered prayer from

throughout the UK’s history – from St

Augustine of Canterbury in the sixth

century to World War Two in the 20th.

The Services Colours at of St Autumn Chad’s

Autumn is one of my

favourite seasons. It’s

nature’s last blaze of

glory before the long

winter sleep. It never

disappoints! The myriad colours

blaze as the sun’s golden hue

bringing depth to the autumn

landscape.

These are mellow days, the

vigorous growth of spring has

passed and summer’s glory is

gone. It’s time to relax, enjoy warm

cosy evenings inside and dig out

the warm, snuggly clothes. As

the nights draw in we can always

hope that the television improves.

At least there’s The Great British

Bake Off to keep us entertained

for a while.

Then there’s the autumn foods!

Apple crumble, with beautiful fresh

Bramley apples, and hot creamy

custard; blackberry pie, ripe juicy

plums and endless varieties of

apples and pears; and of course

all those exciting new flavours of

hot creamy drinks that appear in

cafes everywhere (I do have a

sweet tooth I’m afraid). Let’s not

forget the harvest supper – pie,

mushy peas and gravy with, of

course, Henderson’s Relish, it’s a

tradition! Then follows the Harvest

service when we are joined by our

uniformed groups. It always warms

my heart to see the amazing

amount of gifts that will hopefully

help those in need through the

coming winter.

In November the spectacle of

Bonfire Night is on the agenda.

More colours burst upon our

vision, this time tearing the night

sky with accompanying bangs,

screeches and fizzles. Sparklers

in gloved hands pop and glitter as

they make patterns in the night

air. Who tries to write their name

before it goes out? And the smells!

The smokey bonfire, the chemical

tang of the fireworks and the

food. More food! Baked potatoes

with butter and cheese, hot dogs,

parkin and sticky sweet bonfire

toffee - a dentist’s nightmare!

But finally autumn draws to a

close, the trees give up their glory,

creatures hibernate and migrate,

and the sun gives out a paler light.

Winter draws on.

I often think our lives are like

the seasons. We spend time

growing and reaching out to the

world around us, blossoming

and revealing our true colours,

mellowing and slowing down as

we bath in the late sunlight, and at

last resting in the shelter of times

past.

But life, like the weather of the

seasons, is unpredictable and so

we face storms and darkness,

as well as warmth and light. But

whatever life sends your way may

all life’s passing seasons contain

some glorious, colourful, light.

As a child I remember

annually sitting at a table

with my school friends

with an interesting

collection of materials

in front of us. Oranges, cocktail

sticks, red ribbons, candles, and a

variety of dolly mixture and raisins

were scattered on the table. Our

task was twofold. First, to create

a ‘Christingle.’ Second, to try

not to eat too many sweets so

that some remained to go on the

cocktail sticks.

In 1747 a Bishop in a

Protestant church in Germany

was considering a simple way for

children to think about Jesus. He

came up with a candle and a red

ribbon. This is the origin of the

Christingle. Some 220 years later

John Pensom (who later became

known as ‘Mr. Christingle’)

introduced the Christingle Service

to the Church of England at

Lincoln Cathedral.

The orange itself represents

the world. Into the orange are

inserted four cocktail sticks,

which can be thought of as the

four seasons, or as North, East,

South and West. The sweets or

dried fruit placed on these sticks

represent all of God’s creation

and the fruits that come from it.

The ribbon around the orange is

a symbol of God’s love wrapped

around the world. Furthermore, it

is red to represent Jesus’ blood

on the cross: the great symbol of

God’s love for the world is that he

sent Jesus to us (John 3:16). The

candle inserted into the orange

represents Jesus as the light of

the world, bringing hope to people

living in darkness.

In the Bible, Jesus describes

himself as the Light of the World

(eg, John 8:12). Many will be

familiar with a reading from

the start of John’s Gospel from

Christmas services. It talks of

Jesus as the true light coming into

the world (John 1:1-14).

This explains why Christingle

services happen in the lead up to

Christmas, because Christingles

are all about Jesus coming into

the world and the difference that

he makes. Christmas is the great

annual celebration that focusses

on the arrival of Jesus in the

world, and the joy that it initially

brought to so many: Mary and

Joseph, angels, shepherds and

wise men. But Christmas is also

a time of great joy for us today, as

we celebrate all that Jesus has

done, continues to do, and will do.

People are always welcome

to come to St Chad’s to fi nd out

more about Jesus. Stay tuned

for the next Impact edition for all

the details of Christmas services,

including the Christingle one,

where we will explore more about

Jesus and the Christmas story.

During my travels I have

seen peach trees in

Georgia, lemon trees

in Italy and even fig

trees near Meadowhall.

However, I can’t recall ever seeing

orange trees and the associated

famous orange blossom.

The orange blossom is the

fragrant flower of the Citrus

Sinensis (orange tree). It is used

in the making of perfume and is

the state flower of Florida.

It is traditionally associated with

good fortune and is often

used in bridal bouquets

at weddings. Its

petals can be

made into

orange flower

water, an

alternative to

rose water,

a common

part of both

French

and Middle

Eastern cuisine

used in desserts

and baked goods.

It’s also used in the

United States where

Orange Blossom scones and

marshmallows are made.

Highly-prized Orange Blossom

honey – or citrus honey – is

produced by putting beehives in

the citrus groves during blooming

period and tastes much like the

fruit.

The touristic nickname for the

Castellon seaboard in Spain is

the Costa del Azahar (Orange

Blossom Coast). In Spain, fallen

blossoms are dried and then used

to make tea.

Orange trees were introduced

into Florida from Spain and the

state flower is orange blossom.

Florida produces the majority

of citrus fruit grown in the USA

with most of the oranges being

processed into orange juice, the

official state beverage.

The Orange Blossom Special

was a deluxe passenger train

that connected railroads between

Miami and New York City. It ran

during the winter season only.

It started operating in 1925 and

was designed to lure influential

business leaders to the Sunshine

state and its huge potential for

development. The train

was renowned for its

speed and luxury

and fine dining.

Fresh fish and

other food

was taken

on board at

every stop.

The service

last ran

in 1953. A

country song

was composed

about this

famous train and

Johnny Cash also

named his 1965 album

The Orange Blossom Special.

Interestingly, the Japanese

built their first jet aircraft late

in World War Two and called it

the Nakajima Kikka or Orange

Blossom Special. The first

prototype had only flown once

before the end of the conflict. Its

alternative name translates as

Imperial Weapon Number Two.

The Japanese Orange Blossom

Tree is grown widely in Japan

and China and was exported

successfully to the USA. But as

far as I can gather it does not

produce oranges.

A Complex Serva

A

few years ago we holidayed

in Florida and the number and

size of orange farms was quite

impressive.

As we were driving through

the orange groves I realised that I knew

virtually nothing about oranges so I did a

bit of research and thought I would share

with you how interesting the orange is.

It turns out the orange – or Sweet

Orange as it is properly known – is quite

a complex fruit with a long history and a

fascinating story to tell.

The orange as we know it is a cross

between the Pomelo and the

Mandarin and originated in

China at least 1800 years

ago. It is possible to take

a seed from an orange

bought at a supermarket

and grow it on into a

plant and eventually

into a tree up to 30

feet tall but it often

produces uncertain fruit

because it is most likely

that the resulting fruit will

not resemble the orange that

you took the seed from. In fact it

may not be an orange at all because

oranges are a hybrid fruit so you may get

a lemon (no pun intended). It gets even

weirder because the plant can reproduce

itself asexually by a process which would

take too long to explain but in effect

the female fl ower does not need pollen

from a male fl ower to become fertile – it

has the ability built into the seed to do it

itself. If you want to look it up its called

apomixis.

Commercially, orange trees are not

produced by sowing a seed and then

seeing what grows. This would take

vices and Fascinating at St Chad’s Fruit

several years to reach

maturity and also given

that the fruit that results

may not be an orange at

all farmers use a different

method. The orange tree

is produced by a process

called grafting which

involves putting a slit in the

bark of the young rootstock

tree and inserting a bud from a

known orange tree and then binding

it. The rootstock prevents the tree from

growing too tall and the resulting fruit is

guaranteed to be an orange.

Oranges are handpicked and the

only way to tell if they are ripe is by

cutting one open and tasting it. You

cannot tell by the colour of the skin

because although you may feel that

a green orange would be unripe and

an orange-coloured orange would be

ripe it just doesn’t work that way. The

colour of the skin and the sweetness

of the fruit depends on the night time

temperatures of the location where the

fruit was grown as well as the amount

of sunlight it receives. An orange on the

south-facing part of a tree will be more

orange in colour and sweeter than one

on the north-facing part of the tree. In

fact, in some areas oranges are naturally

green and remain green even when ripe.

The top orange producing countries are

Brazil, the USA, China and India and in

total the 73,000,000 tonnes of oranges

grown each year account for 70 per

cent of citrus production throughout the

world although oddly none are grown in

‘Orange County’ in the USA!

There are many pests and diseases

which can destroy the orange crop

and global warming is increasing the

likelihood of even more pests and

diseases becoming prevalent in the

future.

Next time you pick an orange out of

the fruit bowl please remember what a

complex and fascinating fruit it is.

Services The Fruit at of St the Chad’s Bible

The Bible is jam-packed

full of fruit. But, alas,

no oranges make an

appearance. Over the

years there has been a

fair amount of historical interest in

plants (and what they produce) in

the Bible, but it is complicated by

issues of translation.

Most of the Old Testament

was originally written in Hebrew,

and the New Testament written

in Greek. The Bible has been

translated into many languages

in the world, so sometimes it is

hard to discover exactly what the

original fruit being referred

to was.

All this being

said, figs, grapes,

olives, dates,

pomegranates

and almonds

(yes, almonds

are technically a

fruit!) are the most

mentioned fruits in

the Bible.

Fruits are used in a

variety of different ways in the

Bible. They are used to name

people or places. They are

included in some Old Testament

laws, such as not stripping an

olive tree bare when harvesting

it, but leaving some for those

in need (Deuteronomy 24:20).

Pomegranates are used for

decoration on priestly clothing

(Exodus 28:33-34). Fruits are

used linguistically to communicate

things, including wisdom (eg,

Proverbs 27:18), love (eg, Song

of Songs 7:8) and blessings (eg,

Deuteronomy 8:8).

More generally, ‘being fruitful’ is

an idea that comes up regularly in

the Bible. This might be to do with

growth or producing in a number

of different ways. It could be a

people group growing in number,

an abundance of crops or goods,

or spiritual growth.

Jesus talks about how people

will be known by what kind of fruit

they produce (Matthew 7:15-20)

and that abiding with him means

that his followers will produce fruit

(John 15:1-17). Indeed, St Paul

discusses how Jesus’ Spirit at

work in someone’s life produces

fruit of love, joy, peace, patience,

kindness, generosity, faithfulness,

gentleness, and self-control

(Galatians 5:22-23).

But probably the most

well-known use of fruit

in the Bible is in the

narrative in Genesis.

Here Adam and Eve

eat the fruit (note

that is not called an

apple) of the one

tree in the garden of

Eden that God asked

them not to eat from.

Most of us will probably

know that this results in

the expulsion from the garden

of Eden. Relationships in all

directions are damaged: between

humanity and God, across

humanity, and between humanity

and creation.

The Bible shows these

relationships restored in

Revelation chapters 21 and 22,

where a beautiful garden-city is

described which contains a less

well-known tree from the garden

of Eden, the ‘tree of life’ which

produces fruit. This all comes

about through Jesus, in the new

heaven and earth, but Jesus

promises his followers a foretaste

of this now, the first fruits of what

is to come.

A

new project is set to

launch in the Norton

and Meadowhead

area, organised by the

Landscape Heritage

Research Foundation (LHRF).

From RFC Airfield to City

Suburb – 100 Years of History at

Meadowhead & Norton, Sheffield

has been funded by the National

Lottery Heritage Fund and follows

on from the successful Norton’s

Flying Legacy project of 2016/17.

The project is running over the

next year and will delve further

into the history of the suburb from

the First World War Aeroplane

Repair Depot to today’s thriving

suburb.

One strand will follow the

military theme from WW1,

through WW2 and into the Cold

War and set out to record any

remaining artefacts of the built

military environment and visit

collections to see the type of

aircraft that once flew from the

area.

At the same time, we will

explore the wider development

and growth of the suburb through

visits to the local archives, local

field visits and carrying out

interviews to add important local

first-hand experiences to the

project.

Our intention is to put together

a 100-year history of a major

city suburb and show how it has

changed over that time.

Any project such as this always

needs help! LHRF chairman

and project director, Sheffield

Hallam University’s Professor

Ian Rotherham, said: “Projects

such as this rely very much

on the input of volunteers and

contributors of all ages making it

truly inter-generational.

“Capturing memories and

stories from the past is so

important when tracing the

history of an area but equally

important are those experiences

of today’s generation, recording

their stories and experiences

for the future ensuring the story

continues.”

If anyone is interested in joining

in as a volunteer – no matter how

much or little time you can spare

– or has memories they would

like to share, please let us know

by emailing christine@hallamec.

Celebrating Women’s Fiction

The Orange Prize for Fiction

was founded in 1996 to

celebrate excellence in

writing by women. Over

two decades later, and

now known as the Women’s Prize

for Fiction, it is the UK’s most

prestigious annual book award

celebrating and honouring women’s

writing.

This year’s winner was Tayari

Jones with her book An American

Marriage.

Professor Kate Williams,chair of

judges, said: “This is an exquisitely

intimate portrait of a marriage

shattered by racial injustice.

“It is a story of love, loss and

loyalty, the resilience of the human

spirit painted on a big political

canvas – that shines a light on

today’s America.”

Over the years, many other

authors have won the prize with

their outstanding works of fiction.

The Gift of Love in a Shoebox

Operation Christmas Child

is organised by the

charity Samaritan’s Purse

showing God’s love in a

tangible way to millions of

children around the world.

The charity works with local

churches overseas to distribute

the gifts to those who need them

the most regardless of their

background or beliefs, asking

nothing in return. This may be in

schools, hospitals, orphanages,

homeless shelters and

impoverished neighbourhoods.

It is supported by individuals,

families, schools, churches,

businesses and other

organisations in the UK.

Anyone can do it – just giftwrap

a shoebox, decide if your gift is for

a boy or girl and the age category

then fill it with simple gifts such as

• Hat, gloves, scarf,

• School items – paper/book,

pencils, crayons, rubber, ruler,

• Something to play with - ball,

skipping rope, finger puppets, soft

toy, trucks and cars, doll,

• Hygiene items – comb/

hairbrush, hair accessories, soap,

flannel, toothbrush.

Finally please include £5

towards shipping costs.

This year we have been asked

NOT to include toothpaste,

sweets, or chocolate

Choosing gifts can be fun

for all the family. With a little

imagination, it doesn’t have to

cost a lot of money but will bring

lots of joy to a child who would not

otherwise receive a gift. Even

the box is important as it is often

used for a long time to house their

‘treasures’.

Leaflets will be available at

St Chad’s from October 1 and

completed boxes can be left at

the church office in Linden Avenue

and at our 9am and 11am Sunday

services up until November 25.

Other drop-off points can be

found on the website www.

operationchristmaschild.org.uk

I hope that many of you will

support this appeal again this

year – each shoebox will bring

excitement and happiness to a

child who has so little.

Thank you.

has already organised activities to

help those mobile or lonely to find fun,

friendship and a safe place to spend

some time, perhaps a drink and chat

in the Natter Café, playing snooker or

games, chat in a friendship group or on

a social short walk. Our Thursday 10am

service invites worship and fellowship

with refreshment.

But what about those who lack energy,

willpower or the ability to go out alone to

seek friendship and interest?

What about those housebound, lonely

or have lost confidence? Who cares for

them? St. Chad’s 3rd Age Befrienders

Team does!

Currently we befriend individuals

living locally to Woodseats who have

been referred to us by carers, medical

practices, social workers, family friends

or neighbours. We visit to ensure we

can help and if so match them to a

befriender, and now they are visited

about once a month for an hour of

friendship.

Reasons for the first call to us are

varied, maybe a debilitating illness, an

accident, bereavement or another.

We can only help if we know who

needs it. If you want to find out more, call

the Church Office 0114 274 5086 and

ask for Yvonne Smith to contact you.

The Husband’s Secret by

Liane Moriarty

Following on from reading

Big Little Lies, St Chad’s

Third Age Book Club read

The Husband’s Secret by

the same

author.

Here’s the

question. In an

old box in the attic

you discover a

letter written to you

by your husband

marked “For my

wife - to be opened

only in the event

of my death”. Do

you open it? You

mention, in a

phone call to him,

that you have

found the letter.

He says “don’t

open it”. Do you

read it? Cecilia

Fitzpatrick does.

The content is life changing. She

now has to make a decision.

Cecilia’s life is as perfect as it can

be, so will she let the content of

the letter ruin it?

The story is set in Sydney,

Australia and there are two other

main characters in the book,

Rachel Crowley and Tess O’Leary.

Rachel is secretary at the school

Cecilia’s children attend. She

is mother of a child murdered

30 years ago and believes she

knows the killer’s identity and has

evidence to prove it.

Tess O’Leary

has recently

returned with her

son to Sydney,

after her husband

has told her he

no longer loves

her but wants

to be with her

best friend and

cousin. Tess

enrols her son at

the school where

Rachel works and

discovers that one

of the teachers is

an ex-boyfriend.

The threads of

the lives in this

story are cleverly

entwined and the

ending has a dramatic sting in

the tail. I found the book a light

but engrossing read which I really

enjoyed. I will now be looking for

other novels by this author.
