Where is God leading us and what are God’s plans for our future? These are questions which lie behind our consideration of which grouping we feel, as congregations and as a pastorate, we would like to explore first, as our part of the Synod’s re-structuring. Our initial thoughts might lead us to something smaller, which may not be viable in the longer term, but would look much more like what we are used to. It is understandable that this would seem attractive – but is this the right path? Do we need to pray some more, think more widely and talk again? The Synod has produced ‘A Way Forward’, which is a list of frequently asked questions and answers. You can look it up on the Synod web site, or ask to see a copy.
All this has led me to consider the idea of Church. We all know that the Church is the people of God, called to follow Christ and do God’s will in the world. It is very easy for all of us to enjoy and value church worship and teaching which fits into comfortable patterns for us. When we learn hymns in a more contemporary style, or are part of an all-age or Messy Church style service, are we also happy to be challenged to adapt to what may be more effective in terms of outreach?
At the heart of worship, is God’s Holy Spirit. How in tune are we with what the Spirit is saying and where God wants to lead us? How much do we resist or fear change? God does allow us times in church life to rest and assimilate what has been developing, or to adapt to new circumstances. But we can never stay like that for too long. The Holy Spirit is always active, moving on, and we need to listen and follow, or we’ll die. This does not mean that some get left behind, however. Matthew’s gospel says: ‘every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like the master of a household who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.’ (Matthew 13 verse 52, NRSV). There is space in the Church for many styles of worship and we can appreciate many and learn from them all. It’s the same for other aspects of church life. Outreach may not have been at the top of our action list, but now it needs to take its turn.
In the light of this, each of our churches is involved with something which may be of interest to people beyond our regular folk. Do let your family, friends and neighbours know about them and perhaps bring them along with you. I wrote about our WW1 Peace Poetry & Music event (on 9 September at St P&J’s) in the last Newsletter. If you’d like to take part, perhaps by reading from one of the WW1 war poets, do let me know. We probably all have our favourite poet or poem, what’s yours? We’ll try to include as many as we can. Expect people to be walking round while this is going on – not everyone will have the time to be able to sit but they can still listen as they look around.
St. Margaret’s is one of the few churches actually on the route of the Great North Run (10 Sept). Harton Churches Together decided we’d like to join in the fun and show our presence, by giving out Jelly Babies from outside St. Margaret’s. Come and staff the stall for ½ an hour or so. We’ll be setting up after our morning service, at about 11.30 am and will stay until the Jelly Babies have run out. I’m happy to receive donations at any time – we have a few so far, thank you.
Our Prayer Day, (13 Sept), is a pastorate event, open to all, held at St Paul & St John’s as our other premises are already in use during the week. Prayer is such a vast subject, it is said that there are as many ways of praying as there are people who pray. This is an opportunity for us all to come and try something which may be new and which may be what we need, to hear God speaking to us. Or it may be something which we can then use with others, children or adults. Quiet times to explore the prayer stations will be broken up by short times of worship and prayer throughout the day. Come and give yourself time with God.
There was so much to have a look at when St Andrew’s held a Memories Day last year, that we’ve been asked to do it again. This time (3 October), there’ll be even more for you to look through, so come and have a cuppa and a walk down memory lane!
These are all ways by which we try to show that our churches are alive and active. St Margaret’s decided to have an illuminated cross in the porch. This might help some who come for social and community events to realise that we also worship using the hall – it’s not an unfamiliar space. Listen out in church notices or look on the web site in due course to find out when it is in place and look out for a light shining out in the darkness!
This Newsletter covers a period which includes one of our most popular celebrations – Harvest Festival, and one of our most poignant commemorations – Remembrance Sunday. They can both, in very different ways, speak to us of God. The former, of God’s bounty, love and provision for us, and the latter, of Christ’s sacrifice for us and God’s presence with us throughout all the storms of life. In joy or sorrow, we bring our lives to God in prayer. Don’t forget about our Prayer Chain. It is confidential and the prayer links are pleased to be able to bear you and your circumstances up in prayer. The co-ordinator is Carol, so let her know your prayer requests and she’ll set the prayer chain going, or speak to me.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the summer and managed to have some relaxation and find some sunshine. Thank you to all who have been involved in our various recent events and to all who lead worship around the churches. Through all the seasons of life, may we know God’s loving presence.
May God bless you always.
For your prayers …
On one Synod get-together, paper and crayons were among the resources available for us to use, as a way of expressing our prayers. I think I showed you my ‘prayerwork’ at the time. One of my colleagues used sticky dots and liked that form of prayer so much, intended to keep on using them.
Nature gives us ample expression for prayer. Commuters may pray for public transport and fellow passengers. Walking around, we may pray for shops and shop assistants, the local council, education, the NHS or those we pass, to name a few.
Some find occupying their hands – perhaps knitting, ironing or mowing the lawn – helps concentration. One church I attended invited everyone to shout their prayers at the same time – there was a great noise, which I didn’t think would happen if I suggested that here! Some like background images or music or both, as aids to prayer. Others prefer silence.
It is often when things are not routine that we hear God speaking to us. It makes me wonder how much of my routine keeps God out?
Whether you wish to pray in a familiar pattern, in tongues, or in a new way, here are some topics for your prayers. Use them if you find them helpful.

This is a free game for smartphones and tablets, where players ‘guardians’ explore a fictional city to recover lost Bible stories. Quests, quizzes, mini-games and watching videos are all involved, with the idea of engaging children with spiritual and Biblical matters. The game was launched in 2015 and has been played nearly a million times! You can find it at guardiansofancora.com.
ST ANDREW’S NEWS
Mark Overton, Chair of South Tyneside Dementia Action alliance, gave us a very relaxed, sometimes humorous, but very informative presentation on Dementia Awareness. Mark was happy to answer questions and gave us the opportunity to voice our concerns, which helped our understanding of this terrible illness. We are proud to say St Andrew’s is now a ‘Dementia Friendly’ church.
Some of our congregation attended a fundraising evening in aid of Mercy Ships held at St John’s Church, Hebburn. The evening was hosted by two entertainers who had been on board the Africa Mercy. They were able to give a brilliant insight into the excellent work performed by the medical teams on board. The film footage was a fitting tribute to the dedication of the medics and the difference they make to so many lives. We were in awe of the ‘before’ and ‘after’ images of some of the surgery they had performed, especially children with ‘Cleft Palate’.
We enjoyed the Joint Pastorate trip to Newbiggin, which, despite the weather, was a different experience. Many of us had not visited Newbiggin for many years, or had not been there at all. A very warm welcome with tea/coffee and biscuits was given by members of St Mark’s church, after which Helen conducted a short act of worship before we headed into the town for lunch. A brisk walk along the harbour took us to the headland where we visited the museum and information centre. We then enjoyed a tour of the beautiful St Bartholomew’s Church before Helen rounded the day off with another short service.
The Ecumenical Choir is going from strength to strength, the next concert will be held at St Oswald’s on Friday, 1st September at 7pm. All are welcome and a buffet supper will be provided during the interval.
Our Bible Study is currently held at the home of Mrs Dorothy Thom, we extend our appreciation to Dorothy and Anne Taylor for hosting.
Several members were able to join Miss Dorothy Forster and Miss Alice Welch in birthday celebrations at the Mill Tavern, where we all had a beautiful afternoon tea. It was good to be able to enjoy a catch up together.
We continue to pray for those of our congregation who are unable to attend church due to illness or infirmity.
On behalf of our congregation, I would like to say a big ‘Thank you’ to all those who have led, and continue to lead, our weekly services.

MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING
There will be a Macmillan Coffee Morning on Saturday, 16th September from 10am till noon at the Church Centre, Broughton Road. Please come and support.
2P PER DAY FUND
The 2p Per Day Fund is still ongoing, but many members have forgotten about it. The fund was set up for any unexpected repairs needed in the church.
The fund recently paid £400 for painting the church walls that had been affected by dry rot.
The toilet at the front of the church needed a new hot water boiler, tap and a connected tap for a power hose, so that the front path and steps can be cleaned. The cost of £324 has been paid from the fund this August.
Thank you to those who gave regularly to the fund. Even small amounts saved on a regular basis add up, so it is worthwhile contributing.
After a break in August, Quiz Night starts again on the first Friday of the month. There is a faith supper and a raffle with a contribution of £1. Come and join in.
The Quiz Masters for the following months have all volunteered, which is very much appreciated.
1st September Betty Douglas and Susan Banfield

Refreshments are served at 8.30pm, then more sports and the evening ends at 9.30pm.

Last term the Rainbows learned about the 5 senses and how we use them. We have been tasting different foods, learning about what it would be like to be deaf, had our own celebrity get me out of here experience where the girls had to put their hands into different bags and guess what was in there, I hasten to add it was nothing horrible.
For sight, we had a visitor from the Guide Dog for the Blind who brought her own dog along and taught the girls what the dogs have to for a blind person and how they are trained. It was a very interesting night and the girls loved it.
We ended the term with a Party for our 30th Rainbow Celebrations. 150 Rainbows descended upon Harton Primary School all dressed in an array of Princess Outfits. It was a brilliant day and the weather was actually lovely for them. It was a lovely way to celebrate Rainbows being 30.
I would also like to thank everyone who came along to the Rainbow/Brownie/Guide coffee morning and made it such a success.
We are looking forward to the new term and welcoming some new arrivals. Once again, we have a very long waiting list so if you know anyone that might want to join please do not wait until they are near their 5th Birthday, please go onto the Girlguiding website and register them.
Linda Fernandez, Rainbow Guider
Brownies finished off the summer term with a trip to Dunes Bowling with the Rainbows as an end of term treat and a little goodbye celebration for myself. The girls had a great time and there were some fantastic scores well in the 100s. I would like to thank the Brownies (and leaders) for all their wonderful goodbye gifts they gave me which I look forward to using when I start university.
Before the end of term, the Brownies were working on their book lover badge which involved them looking at the different components that make up books, designing their own book covers as well as book marks and eventually led to them creating and writing their own little books aimed at the Rainbows.
It’s now time for me to say goodbye. When the Brownies return on September 11th, Julie Elliot and her daughter will be taking over. I know she has lots of fantastic things planned for the girls and that I am leaving them in good hands. I won’t be a stranger though and will still pop in on coffee mornings, etc to say hello.
All the best,
Michaela Fleury, Brownie Guider
Thank you all for the stamps you are donating. I have sent another three parcels off. I am amazed at all the different stamps we have collected.
In Guides after finishing our ‘Chocolate go for it ‘ in May we decided to do ‘Glamourama go for it’, where we made soap on a rope and bath bombs. We enjoyed meeting Joseph and Lasa and hearing about life in Madagascar and the Philippines. We all had questions we wanted to ask them and we gave them some guide badges. Since it always seemed to rain on Tuesday evenings we played a lot of indoor games and finished our term off with a pizza party.
Thanks to everyone who supported our coffee morning in July.
When we start back in September we will be looking at how our meetings will change and find out about this year’s challenge.
Katie Wilkes, Guide Guider
TODDLERS AND CARERS

MARGARET OF SCOTLAND – Queen and Saint – AD 1046 – 1093
Our church bears her name and we portray her on our Junior Church banner as a shepherdess tending her sheep – representing God’s children. History tells us that Margaret was a beautiful, highly intelligent lady, devoted to her church and the Christian way of life. She was grand-daughter of Edmund Ironside and daughter of Edward the Atheling, last of the Anglo-Saxon royal family. When quite young, Margaret was to accompany her family into exile in Hungary out of reach of the treacherous Danish kings. During this period of her life Margaret was to receive her education in court life and languages, returning to Scotland a proficient young lady seeking refuge in the court of Malcolm III of Scotland whom she was later to marry. At this time Margaret was still in great personal danger, this time from the Norman conquerors: skirmishes were frequent on the borders of Malcolm’s kingdom, which extended well down into Northumberland, and because of this the King had a Tower and Keep built on the ‘tall rock’ which is now part of Edinburgh Castle so that he could keep an eye on that part of his kingdom south of the Firth or ‘Scot’s Water’. Besides this Tower the King also built a small chapel which still bears Margaret’s name and to this day is the most venerable of Edinburgh’s antiquities.
Queen Margaret and her husband would often frequent the Castle though their place of residence was a palace in Dunfermline. They would travel with their party from the palace and cross the Firth at a place known to this day as Queen’s Ferry. It seems that on most occasions Malcolm always had his Queen at his side and he supported his wife on every matter such as reforming the Church and making it prosper again, and the care of the people was paramount. It is said that Malcolm could neither read nor write but he saw to it that the Queen’s holy books were covered in gilt and gems “to be pleasing to her eyes”. Although he was a rough warrior King there was much happiness in their family of eight children.
In November 1093 whilst in residence in the mist-shrouded Tower of Edinburgh, Margaret, aged 47 years, sick and quite weak, received the terrible news that her King and their eldest son had been killed in the Battle of Alnwick. Margaret drifted into a coma and died. Her frail body was lowered over the western side of the rock, deep at night, and carried back across the Queen’s Ferry to be laid beside that of her dearest Malcolm at the palace in Dunfermline. During the Reformation, their bodies were transferred to a specially built chapel in the Escorial in Madrid and in 1673 Margaret was named Patron of Scotland. Of her eight children Alexander and David were to become Kings of Scotland. Through Margaret and Matilda – her daughter who married Henry 1 of England – the present royal family can trace their descent from the conquest Kings of England.
