Amongst the recipients was Eynulla Fatullayev, an Azerbaijanijournalist imprisoned on false charges; his real “crime” being to criticisehis government. The Belper Amnesty International group have beencampaigning for his release and are pleased to announce that he waspardoned and released in June.Eynulla said: - “I am very happy to be released. I am extremely grateful toAmnesty International who has campaigned since the beginning. In myopinion you saved me.”The greetings cards played a part in this. Thank you.

What AprilAway Day—Young People’s ViewsOn Saturday we went to Eyam on the Church Away Day. The childrensgroup was led by Luke and Helen. We went upstairs and did a posterabout what our church is good at, for example, what we do, if were goodat it, and what we could do in the future. After that we did some cakedecorating and went on a Treasure Hunt. We were dashing around Eyamlooking for some clues. I enjoyed it.At lunchtime we went for a wander around Eyam. We went in the CraftCentre and had a look in Tourist Information. We also went in the church.We found out that one third of the population of the village died during thePlague in 1665 to 1666.After we came back from lunch we made some Fathers Day cards. Wewent in the hall and told everybody what we had been doing. Then wefound our parents and we went home. Amy BradburyWe first introduced ourselves, then we asked the people what theirfavourite cartoon character was.

  9. 9. Jeff Lucas on Change‘Why do we get so attached to things being the way they were? While theChurch should be a place of stability, it is also a community of journeyingpeople, and changes of scenery are to be expected and embraced. Whenthe Church stops moving, she stops being the Church. We are a marchingpeople, hopefully a carnival train, inviting others to come with us as wecontinue with each other and God.’ - [Jeff Lucas’ notes on Acts 15: 1-11]‘For travellers there are no paths. Paths are made by travellers walking.’ -Antonio Machado‘He who limps is still walking’ - Anon Farmer’s Market CafeWhen the Salvation Army Corps moved out of their building on the MarketSquare late last year the opportunity arose to continue their monthlyministry to the Farmer’s Market stallholders and shoppers. Now, underthe ‘Hope for Belper’ umbrella, we open up the hall from 8am until 1pm,serving drinks and cakes and providing a friendly place to meet and chat.Earlier this year we took the decision that there would be no charge forrefreshments, explaining to customers that local Christians just wanted toprovide a much needed service without looking for anything in return.Donations more than cover costs and any surplus is given to Hope forBelper for their continuing work. If you’d like to help in any way, makingcakes or biscuits or serving drinks please contact us. It’s great fun and awonderful way of meeting people and ‘being church’ in the community!

  20. 20. Consumers or Disciples? (Mt 11:16-19) To what can I compare this generation? They are like children sitting in the market-places and calling to others: We played a flute for you, and you did not dance; We sang a dirge for you and you did not mourn. We are a market-place generation. Consumers devoted to pick and mix, Cafe church, traditional church, Fresh expressions, stale expressions, Flute playing, dirge-singing Dipping in and out, Moving on, Rejecting what doesn’t please me, right now. We are consumers, yes. But disciples? Life-long learners, Committed to the Way, Devoted to the Truth, Experiencing the fullness of Life which is Jesus? Prepared to endure to the end, Being thankful in all circumstances, Even when that involves a cross? Are we really becoming And making disciples? God, who sent the flute-player And the dirge-singer, Give us wisdom. By Daphne KitchingThree in One 19 July 2011

The mornings started at 9.00 with worship forthe whole family. The lively singing and drama was a great way to start theday. Gerard Kelly gave the morning talk on the book of Malachi whichteaches us that God has chosen us for His purposes and therefore we needto follow His laws. We were reminded that we made the choice to followGod and He wants people to worship Him.During the day we had a choice, either to go to a seminar, or to have freetime when we could go for a walk, or swim, play crazy golf, go to thefunfair, or even sleep!!During the evenings there was a time of worship and a talk. The worshiptime was led by Noel Robinson and with so many people present, it wasuplifting. We may sing some of his songs in church in the future. Therewas also late night entertainment which Jonathan Veira led and was veryenjoyable.I would recommend Spring Harvest, and it would be wonderful if morepeople from the parish attended.

  24. 24. Serendipity or “the best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men”As you might imagine visitingvarious churches requires a certainamount of planning. However, as inmost other things in life these plansdon’t always work out, so there isalways a need for some flexibility.Heavy traffic, spending significantlymore or less time at one locationthan we planned and even problemswith the Satnav have all resulted inus changing our plans. This oftenmeans that we have to miss outsome places and arrange to visitthem on another occasion.Although it is often easy to findwhen cathedrals and the larger St Mary’s Ecclesfield Anne Hardy 2011minsters and abbeys are open.
