Sunday 19th November - ISLE OF WIGHT STREET PASTOR SUNDAY









Churches all over the island are invited to remember the ministry of Street and School Pastors in their services on this Sunday. We would very much like to have a representation in as many churches as possible and we can provide churches with literature for distribution and a short information DVD suitable for projection either during or before the service - please ask us to send you these resources by email to sp@iowstreetpastors.org.uk or phone 07545 242782.

If there are members of the IW Street Pastors team in your congregation, we are encouraging them to ask their church leaders for an opportunity to contribute during the service in any way they are comfortable to do so; this may be by talking about their experiences to the congregation or perhaps just manning an information table and being available to answer questions.

This special event celebrates an important anniversary – 200 years since the ordination of the first minister of the Independent (Congregational) Church in Ryde – Rev Thomas Guyer. The congregation began its life meeting in a barn in 1799 before moving to George Street and then calling its first minister. The church united with Haylands Chapel in the 1970s and moved to the new site at Beech Grove.

This will include a short presentation about life in Ryde 200 years ago from local historian Tony Gale, something of the story of Thomas Guyer's ministry from Rev Brian Harley - plus some music from the period by Ryde Chorus (who rehearse every week on the premises) and, of course, some celebratory tea and cake. All are welcome to drop in and share in the celebrations at the current church building in Corbett Road, Haylands. PO33 3LE

The musical is a wonderful portrayal of the Christian message through the story of Adam and Eve.  Using the very latest technology the audience will witness the creation of the universe and the formation of man from the dust.

The stage-set for Eden is breathtaking.  Our West End director describes the show, “a visual treat and a delight to the ears; one that will transport the audience to another world.”

The musical stars Kerry Ellis (First Lady of the West End) as EVE, and Hugh Maynard (Jesus Christ Superstar/Miss Saigon) as ADAM, and Russell Watson as ‘THE VOICE OF GOD.’

Wanted - Volunteer Police Chaplains

I am looking for members of faith communities who have got a passion for their local area that extends to their local police force, the basic principle of chaplaincy is to provide safe, independent, confidential support and understanding to all, whether or not they have a defined religious belief and that is what we be offering to members of Hampshire Constabulary.

My role as the Force Lead Chaplain is to coordinate and build a team of multifaith volunteer chaplains from across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight to work in the different locations across the force to offer this support, the commitment we are looking at from our volunteers is a minimum of 2 hrs a week and in return for this we will provide training, uniform, support and expenses to enable this. Chaplains will visit their assigned police station weekly / fortnightly with a smile on their face and box of cakes never hurts! Chaplains will build relationships with the officers and staff in their station through being available, chatting with staff and being a part of their life and work. It is hoped that chaplains will be build trust and gain understanding so that if and when someone wishes to offload the chaplain is available. Chaplains will have full access (once police vetting has been completed) to the station they are assigned to and also have the opportunity when appropriate to accompany officers on foot patrol and in cars to gain and insight to policing. Caring for our police in this way is a great privilege and you will gain a lot from this position as much as those receiving your care gain from you.

If you are interested, the next steps are an informal conversation with me, an open information afternoon early 2018 and then a few slightly more formal (but not hard or scary) steps which I will guide you through!

Thanks for your time in reading this.

Evaluating the extent of Rough Sleeping on the Island



The Local Authority is tasked each year to complete an estimation of the numbers of rough sleepers in their district. To this end I would invite your service to assist in this process.
 
The estimate will be carried out by conducting a survey on the night of Wednesday 22 November going in to the morning of 23 November 2017 further details of which will be sent out nearer the date.

Download the Rough Sleepers Survey Form
 
Anyone in your organisation who could possibly come into contact with individuals who may indicate that they are without accommodation and rough sleeping should be aware of the estimate.  If you are not the person in your organisation who would be responsible for ensuring that this information is circulated within your service, could I please urge you to let me know, or forward the email to whoever would be responsible and advise me who it has been forwarded to so I may update my contact list by 3 November 2017.
 
We are hearing  anecdotally that there is a significant number of rough sleepers on the Island but this is never reflected in the estimate returns so can I please encourage you to ensure your services take part in this survey.
 
If you have any queries regarding this matter please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss.  I shall be sending out the survey for completion and return together with further information a week or two before the evaluation date.
 
Otherwise I thank you in advance for your involvement.

The Children’s Society are seeking volunteer speakers on the Isle of Wight

The Children’s Society are seeking volunteer speakers on the Isle of Wight to go and talk in a variety of settings to make sure people are up-to-date on our work, thanked for their support and encouraged to support us, not just through fundraising, but also through prayer and campaigning.
It is a painful fact that many children and young people in Britain today are still suffering extreme hardship, abuse and neglect. Too often their problems are ignored and their voices unheard. Now it is time to listen and to act.

The Children’s Society is a national charity working with the most vulnerable 10-18 year olds who have no-where left to turn. We provide direct support and also campaign for changes to laws affecting children and young people, to stop the mistakes of the past being repeated in the future.
Our supporters around the country fund our services and join our campaigns to show children and young people they are on their side.

For the last 135 years, we have been helping the most marginalised and vulnerable children in England.  Whilst our vision remains the same ‘A world where children are free from disadvantage’, the actual work we do is constantly changing. 

We currently don’t have any speakers on the island, so are looking for one or two people who we can train in this role to ensure everyone on the Isle of Wight gets the chance to hear about our work and get involved!

Most talks last 10 minutes but some talks can last up to an hour.  There is such a huge variety of opportunity.  As a church of England charity, many of our talks do take place in a church setting.  However, we also speak in schools, Rotary Clubs, U3A’s etc.  The possibilities are endless!  The more speakers we have, the more talks we can give meaning that more people will understand our vital work. Full training will be given and you will have the support of a local manager, as well as access to our online resources.

  • You do not need to be Christian for this role, but you need to be comfortable in a Church of England environment, which may include talking about prayer and theology.
  • Passionate about helping vulnerable children and young people
  • Comfortable talking to large groups, which may have a fundraising ask
  • Warm and personable character; enjoys meeting new people of all backgrounds
  • Organised and willing to write own talks, with guidance and access to a wealth of resources
  • Access to your own transport and willing to travel around your area (distance can be discussed and reasonable expenses paid)
  • Be willing to cover at least 4 talks a year, many of which will take place during a Sunday church service
  • Where possible, help to find new audiences for us to talk to, using your contacts/knowledge

If you'd like to find out more about the role, or have any other questions, please get in touch with Jessica Meale, Relationships Manager, on 0208 3909730 or email Jessica.Meale@childrenssociety.org.uk

IDEAS AND RESOURCES

• Invite representatives from local faith groups to your HMD ceremony – they could
light candles or read a prayer.

• Organise a joint reading of literature reflecting different faith traditions.

• Invite different faith groups to contribute to a collective, commemorative piece of art that
could then be exhibited at the different places of worship. For example, different faith
groups could each reproduce one section of a larger image which are then displayed
together, or each faith group could produce an image of how memories are passed from
generation to generation which are all displayed together.

• Your event could feature the life story of Joan Salter, the daughter of Polish-
Jewish parents who survived the Holocaust, or Ceija Stojka, a Romany Gypsy who
was persecuted by the Nazis, or Safet Vukalić, a Bosnian Muslim who survived
ethnic cleansing in Prijedor. Ali Sheqer Pashkaj’s life story highlights that many
Albanian Muslims helped rescue and protect Jews during the Holocaust. You could
share the life story of Vali Racz, a Catholic Hungarian film star who rescued Jews.

• Toby Howarth, the Bishop of Bradford, has recorded a podcast about the importance
of speaking out when we see discrimination happening in our communities. You could
play this as part of an HMD activity:

• For more faith and interfaith resources, including prayers, see: Website resourses

• Display posters from our free Activity Pack

• Order some free ‘About HMD’ Booklets to hand out at your event.

• Each year the Council of Christians and Jews (CCJ) and Churches Together in Britain
and Ireland (CTBI) jointly create a resource pack for churches to use in their service for
HMD:

Volunteer for NYAS

 





•       Do you want to make a difference to a young person’s life?
•       Do you have 1- 4 hours per month to spare?
 
We urgently require more volunteers, so why not volunteer as a mentor/befriender for NYAS as an Independent Visitor for children and young people in care. 
 
As a volunteer you will:
•       Have fun, take young people on outings and maybe share a hobby, sport or interest.
•       Offer support and a listening ear and be a positive influence in a young person’s life.
•       Help build self-esteem and confidence.
 
You don’t need any special qualifications. We are looking for reliable and dependable people from all walks of life.We will provide training and on-going support. We will pay expenses to a set limit.
 
Here is what some of our young people and volunteers have to say about this rewarding role:
•       I like how my Independent Visitor isn’t anything to do with social services and is here to support me, not to judge.
•       They have boosted my confidence.  Now I feel like when I go places I can just relax and have fun.
•       My Young person always looks forward to me coming. They have had such a disjointed life and I'm a stable figure in their life. This has to be important for them as everything else changes around them a lot.
 
If you would like to apply, please visit our website

Fresh Footprints - A New Book by John Houghton
 
John Houghton
Fresh Footprints
: Paperback
Size: 198mm x 130mm
Pages: 264
Release Date: November 2017
Price: £9.99
ISBN: 9781910786789

John Houghton became a God-searcher at a time when churches were going under the hammer, vicars no longer believed their own faith, and God was pronounced dead. But John possessed an insatiable curiosity and wanted to find out for himself…

In spite of a relentlessly scientific and rationalistic education, something nagged inside him. Could there be more to life? Science can only observe and measure, but how could you measure the unmeasurable? The artistic, creative side of his personality demanded answers that science could never supply. So can God still have a place in a world rules by science and technology? How can there be a God of love given so much appalling suffering in this world? Hasn’t evolution disproved the existence of God, anyway?

Fresh Footprints seeks to answer these and many other questions. Using the idea of a seashore journey, the author invites readers to discover a relationship with God for themselves.

John Houghton is a layperson’s philosopher, theologian and artist with a down-to-earth take on science, faith and spirituality in the 21st Century. John is the author of many books, including both children and adult fantasies, practical faith lifestyle, and home group Bible study.

They include Hagbane’s Doom and the Oswain Tales series, A Touch of Love and The Harry Potter Effect.
He is an experienced public speaker and teacher. John and his wife, Jan, live in southern England. They have
three adult children and ten grandchildren.

‘John’s helical ‘slinky’ approach to God and life is very persuasive. His retelling of the grand biblical narrative is compelling. Throughout, John asks questions galore, refusing to force-feed us. Above all, we are offered the good news in fresh clothes. If you’re brave enough to dip your feet in the water for the first time, just do it! If you’re already swimming and want to bring those with arm-bands gently with you, this would be a great stimulus.’
Rev Andrew Whitman MA, Theologian and spiritual teacher

‘There are just a few books I have given away, again and again. This book may well join that short list! Reading John Houghton’s latest book is like taking a long walk with the author, probably along the seashore. Rather like John himself, it is approachable and conversational in style, yet rich and broad in scope. Infused with humour, metaphor, parable and anecdote, yet engaging creatively with science, philosophy, theology and the arts; Fresh Footprints is an extraordinary read which takes the reader on a journey from positive beginnings, through the inevitability of tension, failure and struggle, and on to a truly hope-filled conclusion. Rather than trying to win arguments, John Houghton seeks to win friends and fellow travellers to join him in this glorious and extraordinary search.’
Daniel Pritchard, Centre Manger Letton Hall

For those of you in business

Apart from my spiritual role here on the Isle of Wight and internationally, as some of you will know, I also run my own business as a business and life coach. It’s in that capacity that two years ago I started a business network group, called Vectis business link,  that meets every other Tuesday morning for breakfast at the Ryde Castle Hotel on Ryde Esplanade, Ryde from 7am till 9ish. This is a great opportunity to promote your business to other businesses from across the island.

We are now opening our group to any other still unrepresented businesses/trades that wishes to join us or at least visit us and as a guest enjoy a FREE breakfast.
