Money For Old Curtains: Student Fundraiser Brings £1420

STETS-CESoft furnishings from the 1970s offer Sarum more than nostalgia.

Two years ago Ness Whiffin, a student on the Southern Theological Training and Education Scheme (STETS) approached Sarum College Principal Keith Lamdin to ask whether their group might have the green bold patterned curtains in the dining room, given the refurbishment planned for December 2011.

Not long after, Ness wrote to say the curtains were “now laundered and ready for creating into something amazing!”

The group used the material to make a variety of items, including stoles, waistcoats, Bible covers and bookmarks to sell at clerical clothing fairs.

Thanks to the generosity of the 37-10 STETS group, Sarum College has benefited from the proceeds – we received cheques totalling £1420 in 2013. A huge thank you to the 37-10 group for their creative endeavours!

We welcome any other fundraising ideas out there. For more information on how you might be able to support Sarum College visit our dedicated page or get in touch with us.

Book of the Month: April 2013

86312The Helmsley Chronicles: a Diary celebrating rural and church life… a remedy for the uncertainties of the modern world by David Wilbourne (2012).

I was immediately attracted to the cover of this book; a painting of the stone houses, church and bridge over the river which I recognised to be the attractive town of Helmsley in North Yorkshire.

Author David Wilbourne was vicar of Helmsley before becoming Assistant Bishop of Llandaff, and the book consists of diary entries from 1997 to 1998, his first year in the Parish. Some of you may recall his regular diary column in the Church Times on which the book is based.

The book is written in a gentle style, and deals with life in rural North Yorkshire, with the same kinds of characters to be found in the writings of James Herriot and Gervase Phinn. While Herriot drove around in an old car, Wilbourne seemed to spend a lot of time bicycling from Helmsley to his parishioners and to his other lonely churches, often in bad weather and at speed as he desperately tries to get to his appointment on time after phone calls and visitors at the vicarage inevitably mean a late start.

The diaries don’t only deal with everyday life; some of the big issues as also touched on briefly. 1997 was after all the year Princess Diana died. It was also the year a gay wedding in the US made the TV news.

But mainly the diaries show a compassionate vicar trying his best to be accepted and make a difference in his parish, just as many are doing a decade later. Even in an idyllic part of the country, there are problems of vandalism. He speaks of “the intercessions book, thrown on the floor by the thief, containing the heartfelt pleas of folk carrying so much tragedy”. It is the mixture of tragedy and humour which makes this book so enjoyable.

Reviewed by Jenny Monds, Director of Learning Resources, Sarum College.

Published by Darton, Longman and Todd, ‘The Helmsley Chronicles’ is normally priced at £12.99. Mention the Sarum College Website to order a copy at the special price of £11.99 and POST FREE from Sarum College Bookshop until April 30th 2013.

New features include added provision for all the seasons of the Church year, new items for carol services and other popular occasions where the repertoire is in need of refreshing, more choices for all-age worship, fresh translations of some ancient hymnody, beautiful new tunes, short songs and chants – kyries, alleluias, blessings – and music from the world church.
