Thanksgiving for harvest.
It is the time of year when Harvest Festivals are celebrated in our churches all over the country.
We have passed through the season for sowing and the long growing season and the hard work of the harvest, and now we give thanks.
Every harvest we celebrate the goodness of God in providing for our needs in the form of the food we eat.
Harvest also gives us the opportunity to think about and give thanks for those who grow and harvest our food.
Whenever Jesus talks about the harvest or about anything to do with food he nearly always refers to the people who do the hard work, the sower in the field, the farmer who stores in barns, the men who sort out the wheat from the tares, the labourers in the vineyard. Such people are often overlooked or forgotten today, especially if they are far away.
We are happy to find the fruits of their labours in our cupboards, fridges and on our plates; the meat, the milk, the vegetables and fruit, but at times we forget those who are responsible for getting these things to our supermarkets, shops and homes.
Jesus often referred to the countryside around him and told stories about animals and birds, stories about sheep and goats, about the birds of the air, about a sparrow falling to earth and about the fish of the sea. He called himself, ‘The Lord of the Harvest.’
At harvest time we are called to be thankful, thankful to God who has given us so much, and thankful to those who work so hard that we might be fed with the rich variety of food we have around us today in abundance.
Let us celebrate and be thankful for the bounty of God’s earth and the labourers in the field, and may all God’s people be fed. Joyce
‘For while the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter and day and night shall not cease.’ (Genesis 8:22)
Please note – our Priest-in-charge, Chris, is taking Tuesday as his rest day.
St Mary’s Hornby Harvest in the Barn
A huge Thank You to David, Christine and all the Anderson family for allowing us to hold our Harvest celebration in one of their barns on Sunday 17 September. It was fantastic !
Thanks also to all who helped make it happen and to those who attended and enjoyed the service and lunch afterwards.
PARISH WEEKEND MAY 11-13 2018 More information soon.
Rev Chris and a group from the Parishes are planning a Parish weekend booked for May 11-13th 2018 at Wydale Hall near Scarborough. This is a chance to come together and share fellowship, there will be a guest speaker, activities for the children and a chance to explore the grounds.
Wydale hall is set in 14 acres of beautiful grounds just waiting to be explored. Come and make use of the varied trails, pretty gardens, prayer labyrinth and sports facilities. Wydale is situated in the North Yorkshire Moors, with varied countryside walks for you to enjoy, and opportunities for you to visit nearby historical coastal towns like Scarborough & Whitby.
King’s Club 2017
Have you ever been on a journey? I guess the answer is yes, but have you been on a journey like the one at King’s Club this year? Let me tell you about it.
Seventy children and young people followed the theme of ‘The Journey’ at Askrigg for a week in August. Lively, exciting, wacky, challenging ............ these are just some of the words you might use to describe it. The two presenters at Askrigg school – Donna Wanderoff and Ida Gonthatway entered to the children clapping along to ‘500 miles’ and were confronted with a camping scene and a signpost. Each day they tried to work out who had been camping there and then make the decision which path to follow – the Broad way or the Narrow way? The Narrow way choice meant they met with people who had journeyed with Jesus and so they could relate ‘Jesus events’ to the children. Alan and Steve (alias ‘the sheep’) continually argued about which way to go, lost their map every day but somehow were able to explain something about the people camping by the signpost! These disciples’ journeys started with Jesus saying, ‘follow me’, saw him offering living water to a Samaritan woman, God declaring that Jesus was his beloved Son on a mountain and then ending with Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, his victorious resurrection and the witness of two men meeting him on a journey to Emmaus. The strap line by the end of the week was ‘Jesus is our living forever friend’. Morning and afternoons were packed with lots of crafts and games, most focusing on the journeys with Jesus. There was hardly a moment to spare during the day when the children could catch their breath – apart from lunch time when they were sitting in small groups talking and eating.
Stones and Pebbles presented a similar programme at Low Mill Activity Centre for the young people. Their wacky approach included jokes that I’m not sure even they understood! A similar journey seeing how Jesus related to his disciples gave good opportunity for the young people to express their interest and doubts, talk openly about their personal convictions and ask questions of their group leaders. All took part in an activity programme run by the Low Mill instructors and this included opportunity to canoe, abseil and gorge scramble. All this alongside team challenges and games. The Friday afternoon included the, now famous, waterslide and ‘how to avoid getting wet by the leaders’, extravaganza.
Many people came to the BBQ on the Friday – had some good food and conversation as well as seeing a little of what the week had involved. As Jess Holland alias Ida Gonthatway said, it was a privilege to work with the children and young people of Wensleydale.
We are very grateful to the school and Low Mill Centre for the use of their facilities, and to all the leaders who gave their time to work on the King’s Club team.
Next year is the 30th year of King’s Club. Watch out for celebrations.
The 2018 week will be Monday 6 to Friday 10 August with the BBQ on the Friday at 6pm

Hunton & Arrathorne CP School News
It was lovely to welcome back our pupils after the summer break. Our new pupils are quickly settling in and we hope they will be very happy with us.
Next week the children are taking part in a sponsored run to raise money to develop our outdoor learning area. Our Eco Club have taken on board the job of co-ordinating ideas and designs before we all start work on making changes.
Our Year 5 and 6 children are starting to get ready for their residential visit to Bewerley Park Outdoor Centre at the beginning of October which we have organised with Masham Primary School as we did last time. Hopefully gorge- walking will be a little warmer than it was in November!
We are hoping to arrange an open morning for prospective new pupils to come and see what we have to offer on Saturday 11 November 10.00 - 11.15 am. Please look out for further details or check on our website if you are interested.
Wenselydale Concert Series
What a wonderful year of concerts it has been - but it isn't over yet!! 7.30pm St Andrew’s Church Aysgarth.
On Saturday 21st October, for our final concert of the year, we welcome the award winning Cobweb Chamber Orchestra conducted by Andy Jackson to play a programme of Mozart, Field and Beethoven. You may remember Andy from last year when he conducted Northern Camerata at Aysgarth. He was so impressed by the location, the beautiful building and warmth of the reception that he asked could we invite Cobweb Chamber Orchestra to give a concert.
Joining the orchestra is a good friend of our concert series that many have met before, pianist Daniel Grimwood.
He is coming to play the wonderful, lyrical and romantic 7th Piano Concerto
by John Field. John Field was a prolific Irish composer, he invented the Nocturne (later made even more famous by Chopin). He was also a famous concert pianist and toured the major concert venues of Europe to great acclaim. The premiere of the 7th Piano concerto was in Paris and attended by Liszt and Chopin. The concerto is rarely heard these days (very unjustly as it is really beautiful) and so it is a huge privilege to have this performed in Wensleydale.
As well as the piano concerto the orchestra will perform the overture to Mozart's Cosi fan Tutte and Beethoven's Symphony No. 7.
Tickets are already on sale via the website and via TicketSource.
Simon & Grace's Liberia Update
Wow! We have been here in Liberia now for two months. We’re in the middle of the rainy season so sometimes it is sunny, hot and humid, other times it is raining heavily, hot & humid, whilst the rest of the time it’s just plain grey, cloudy, hot and humid. You get the picture – it’s hot and humid! Temperatures varying around 24- 32C, 24hrs/day. And this is the cooler time of year! We hope to move into our new long-term home later this month, but have just started using the vehicle we purchased from the people who have just left.
Since we arrived Simon has been working hard to try and help Eddie, the Trinity Dental Clinic Administrator and lead Dental Nurse Practitioner, to apply to start a five-year course to train as a dentist at a Dental School in Ghana. If he is accepted this will leave a major ‘hole’ in the Clinic which will need ‘filling’. In anticipation, we are trying to recruit another, locally trained, Dental Nurse Practitioner. Simon will then assume the lead Administrator and Clinical roles – a significant task as Eddie knows everything and everybody; whilst Simon ... ... well let’s say he’s trying to learn quickly!
“I (Grace) am working 3 days a week at the ELWA Hospital. It has 100 beds with male, female, paediatric and obstetric wards, an operating suite (OR), and Emergency room (ER) - like Accident and Emergency - where people also stay until they are stable enough to go to the ward. I spend most Mondays between the wards, listening to the ward rounds and learning some Liberian medical terms, like “my eyes can be turning” (I’m dizzy) and “I’ve got belly” (I’m pregnant). I have been trying to get alongside the Nurses on the wards, learning their names and trying to connect in some practical/caring way with them. If some things on the wards are in short supply, my next hat is donned and I go to the Central Stores to find said articles and bring them to the wards. Usually one of the storekeepers uses a wheelchair to move the big stuff from store to ward.
Outside of work we are getting to know friends from various parts of the world through shared meals, the weekly Wednesday evening Prayer ‘n’ Share; and the occasional meal out.
Our Sixtimesopen sponsored walk went well with a good number of folk on our compound walking with us on the day – and we didn’t get wet! Many thanks to those who donated to the cause.

News from Hackforth and Hornby CE Primary School
Pupils returned refreshed, ready for a busy autumn term.
Working with Hackforth Village Hall, we enjoyed a successful Villages Show. Georgina Campbell’s beautiful artwork on the theme of nature won the school’s Queen Elizabeth 11 Golden Jubilee Art Shield. As ever, the quality of the artwork across the school was of a very high standard, making our judge’s job extremely difficult. The high standard of Katrina Dunn’s entries across the general children’s sections, secured her the prize for overall children’s winner. Well done to Georgina and Katrina and all our prize winners across the school’s art and handwriting competitions, and the other children’s classes.
Congratulations to our newly elected School Council; Eco Council and Playground Leaders. We are looking forward to working with you to develop school across a range of areas, particularly our beautiful garden and outdoor learning areas. Looking ahead, we will be taking part in a variety of experiences to complement our curriculum. The juniors will be working with an architect from Ripon to take part in a National Trust challenge to design a folly for Fountains Abbey. The whole school will be visiting the Cleveland Iron Stone Mining Museum to support our Saxon and fossil investigations and the juniors are looking forward to extending our links with Richmond Pool through a First Aid course, led by their community outreach officer. We will also be working with the War Memorials’ Trust to develop our local awareness of Remembrance. Our Year 2 pupils will be joining Mini Explorers for an afternoon of outdoor and eco activities.
A very warm welcome to Rev Chris Lawton. We would like to thank him for his support with the children’s aspect of the show. We are looking forward to working with him, to strengthen further our already established and rewarding links with St Mary’s Church.
We will be holding Open Afternoons in school on Friday 29th September from 3pm and Friday 20th October from 2.30pm. If you can, please join us to talk to staff and pupils about our school. If not, please look out for coverage of our varied activities on our website and on Facebook.
PhysioNet is a charity based in Yorkshire set
up in 2005 to provide physiotherapy equipment to disabled children in Eastern &
Central Europe and in developing countries round the world. All equipment is
donated and is refurbished by PhysioNet prior to shipment.
PhysioNet is run entirely by volunteers; all donations go directly towards funding shipments of critical physiotherapy equipment to people in need in developing countries. Bulk
collections of equipment are made from the NHS, Social Service Departments,
Local Education Authorities and the private sector throughout the UK.
If you have any type of wheelchair or other mobility equipment or aids which
you no longer require PhysioNet would be most grateful if you could donate
it to them.
