  3. 3. Letter from the MinisterDear FriendsHarvest is here, and we have the opportunity to give thanks to God for the variety of harvest we enjoy: from berries to bananas, carrots to courgettes, damsons to doughnuts! (Doughnuts? Well… wheat and sugar are crops after all!)We have so very much to be thankful for, and so often we forget to show our thanks.Our Harvest services, our table grace, perhaps even the smiles on our faces when we see our favourite meal – all remind us to say thank you to God for his generous providing.In Genesis 8:22 we find our first harvest promise from God: “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.”Our New Testament tells us of a different harvest. In John 4:35 we are told to look around us and see how the fields are ripe for harvesting.And we know what this means. It is time to invite people, to encourage others into church – and we can begin with Harvest.So, ask for donations of food for the food-bank (list of wanted items elsewhere in the magazine (on page 13 - Ed) ), and then invite them to come to the service to hand them in; or perhaps mention casually that we are having a Harvest service, and see if there is a response!God has provided the harvest and now sends us to be those who reap, and will give us the courage to ask the question.Let each of us be brave enough to ask at least once!

  8. 8. What a good ideaApparently this is a standard procedure all paramedics follow at the scene of an accident when they come across your cell phone. ICE - In Case of EmergencyWe all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of these numbers belong to our closest family or friends.If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldnt know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? Hence this ICE (In Case of Emergency) Campaign, The concept of ICE is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations.As cell (mobile) phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name ICE (In Case Of Emergency).The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients, but they didnt know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital Staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialling the number you have stored as ICE.For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc. A great idea that will make a difference!Lets spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our mobile phones today!Please share this. It wont take too long before everybody will know about this. It really could save your life, or put a loved ones mind at rest. ICE will speak for you when you are not able to. 6

Their 8 year old daughter was a joy, and kept the house alive with her quick wit and talent for drawing, amongst other things. One day, she was telling us about identical twins who were her friends. I asked her, “ How do you tell them apart?” Her instant reply was “I call their name!” Editor Those stories, photos and artwork for this, Your page! 7
  10. 10. The Hayes Community BusI have been asked by a number of members of the Church to explain how the use of the bus is organized.Firstly, I notice that the bus is referred in Catalyst as the mini- ambulance. This vehicle was sold in June 2008 for £175.00, after giving 19 years of service, and was only available for the frail and elderly.A new charity was formed in June 2008 to enable the bus to be available for all ages, and its use has steadily grown, and in fact has been booked well into 2013 by certain groups.The original committee of 12 was reduced to 4, and is as follows: - John Moren Chairman Les Mollison Secretary and Treasurer Allan Evison Driving Instructor Alan Farrar other Committee MemberAll bookings should be made via the Chairman, and it is intended that all groups should provide their own drivers.The cost is 50p per mile. With a full coach, this works out at less than 4p per mile per person.Because of more restrictions regarding age by our insurance company and some drivers leaving the area, and some not being medically fit, the charity has lost the services of 15 drivers during the last year.We do now urgently require more drivers. If you feel you could offer your services, please contact myself.One of the drivers who had to retire through age was Martin Nunn, who drove the bus for over 16 years.This service was recognized at the recent AGM, when I was pleased to present a book to him as a token of appreciation from the Committee.

To help you understand my sermon, I want you all to read Mark 17."The following Sunday, as he prepared to deliver his sermon, the minister asked for a show of hands. He wanted to know how many had read Mark 17. Every hand went up.The minister smiled and said, "Mark has only sixteen chapters. I will now proceed with my sermon on the sin of lying." 13

  17. 17. Words for teenagersNorthland College principal John Tapene has offered the following words from a judge who regularly deals with youth. "Always we hear the cry from teenagers, what can we do. Where can we go? "My answer is this: Go home, mow the lawn, wash the windows, learn to cook, build a raft, get a job, visit the sick, study your lessons and after youve finished, read a book. Your town does not owe you recreational facilities and your parents do not owe you fun."The world does not owe you a living; you owe the world something. You owe it your time, energy and talent so that no one will be at war, in sickness and lonely again. In other words grow up. Stop being a cry baby, get out of your dream world and develop a backbone not a wishbone. Start behaving like a responsible person. You are important and you are needed. It’s too late to sit around and wait for somebody to do something someday. Someday is now and that somebody is you!"

  18. 18. Website of the Month The Christian Enquiry Agency (The following is taken from the website.)The information provided is reliable, objective and given confidentially.It does not just give a version of Christianity adhered to by one particular group of Christians (‘denomination’ or ‘tradition’). Instead it attempts to explain and explore what Christians of all kinds believe.CEA tries to respond to all enquirers by giving them what they ask for, and only what they ask for. It takes steps to ensure that no one is given information unsolicited. It does not seek to take the place of local churches.Under the Find out More section: -You are invited to choose from the following optionsq Please send me the story of the life of Jesusq I have a question about Christianityq Please pray for meq I would like to start an email conversationq I would like to find a discussion group or a churchq I want to strengthen my faith ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Do take a look at this website. You should be glad that you did! Editor LITTLE EYES UPON YOU There are little eyes upon you and theyre watching night and day. There are little ears that quickly take in every word you say. There are little hands all eager to do anything you do; And a little boy whos dreaming of the day hell be like you. Youre the little fellows idol, youre the wisest of the wise. In his little mind about you no suspicions ever rise. He believes in you devoutly, holds all you say and do; He will say and do, in your way when hes grown up just like you. Theres a wide-eyed little fellow who believes youre always right; And his eyes are always opened, and he watches day and night. You are setting an example every day in all you do; For the little boy whos waiting to grow up to be like you. Author Unknown 16
  19. 19. Laurie George Edward Hobbs 1930 - 2012Laurie was born in Bickley on 1st August 1930, the only child of George and Grace. Sadly, he picked up poliomyelitis at the age of 5, while on holiday. He was lucky to regain the use of his right side. Though, after twisting his ankle many times he had a foot reconstruction and fused ankle in his 20s.Laurie enjoyed school at Bickley Park, being evacuated for 6 months with the school to a remote Welsh valley, and then went to Eltham College. He took a BSc Econ at Southampton University and spent most of his working life at the Port of London, first in berthing and latterly, after becoming an Associate in Personnel Management, in personnel work at the Port.Doreen and Laurie met on holiday in Ireland and married in 1969. Having lived for some years in Hassocks, West Sussex, Laurie returned to his childhood area. He loved singing, and especially enjoyed the Bromley Male Voice Choir, which at that time had a national reputation.Laurie was a devout Christian. He helped form a satellite church from his church in Keymer, assisting with the choir and playing for services. He had the skill of hearing a piece of music and then being able to pick it up on the piano. He also challenged himself by buying and playingthe piano scores of many well known concertos.He was very keen to watch sport, and had played cricket in his youth. He also had a passion for transport; especially for steam railways. His knowledge was vast.Although developing diabetes in his early 40s and, a few years ago, non Hodgkins Lymphoma of the bone marrow and spleen, Laurie lived for the day. He also looked forward to, and enjoyed, some exciting holidays.Laurie was a quiet participant in life around him He took seriously his Eldership and being a choir member. He also enjoyed helping Doreen at Coney Hall School and Nash College when she was head.Laurie passed away on the 13th of August 2012, shortly after his 82nd birthday. He led a good, full life and will be greatly missed by relatives and friends. Doreen Hobbs. 17

  24. 24. Final ThoughtGod our Father,make the door of our churchwide enough to receive all who need human love and fellowshipand a Father’s care,and narrow enough to shut out all envy, pride and lack of love;here may the tempted find help,the sorrowing receive comfort,the careless be awakened to repentance,and the penitent be assured of your mercy;and may all your children renew their strengthand go on their way in hope and joy;through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
