RECTOR’S LETTER

Dear Friends at St Nicholas’,
I hope that the summer period has been a time of refreshment for you. The Northern Ireland weather proved a little kinder than the average summer and many of us enjoyed the opportunity to enjoy being outdoors for all sorts of activities in the warmth and sunshine! What a wonderful opportunity it was to enjoy being reminded of the beauty of the world that God has made!

One of the things that I enjoyed doing over the summer was sharing the company of a small group of parishioners who went out into our town for a ‘prayer walk’. We spent a little while strolling gently around Carrickfergus looking round about us and using the things that we saw to prompt us to pray for the people of our town. It was a simple way to relate our Christian faith to the place that God has sent us to serve. I’d encourage you to think about taking time to use your own surroundings at home, at work, or as you travel about, as a prompt to prayer too. We hope to build a few more prayer walks into our church activities when the weather permits it. You’d be very welcome to join us.

I also want to say ‘thank you' to those who have helped with the other summer activities at St Nicholas. Our team of parish helpers have worked together to run the Sunday Funday club each week and a Holiday Bible Club at the beginning of July. Volunteers helped to provide tea and coffee not just at our main Sunday morning worship, but also when we welcomed folk from Joymount and Carrick Methodist Churches as part of our shared evening services.  And of course, members of the parish have read lessons in church, the cleaners have maintained our building in lovely order and the tour guides have welcomed a steady stream of visitors to our historic church throughout the summer. I appreciate all that you have given to the life of St Nicholas’ in these acts of Christian service.

The Autumn programme at St Nicholas’ begins in a very special way this year. We are looking forward to welcoming Bishop Alan at 11 am on Sunday 2nd September as he comes to confirm a number of young people and adults who have decided that they wish to publicly declare their faith in Jesus Christ. I hope that all of us will make a special effort to be present to support them as they reaffirm the promises made for them at baptism to love and serve the Lord.

An occasion such as this reminds us that we all have a responsibility, not just to nurture our own faith, but to encourage and build each other up. As we will gather with a group of young people who have been encouraged in the Christian faith through years spent in Sunday school and Bible Class, I’m very grateful to Lynn Rodgers and his team of teachers who have played such an important part in so many young lives in recent years.

As we move into a new phase of this work, we have taken the opportunity to reshape things slightly with a new name and slightly different pattern to our work. You’ll find some more details elsewhere in the magazine, but our Sunday morning activities for the younger children will now be known as “JaM” - Jesus and Me! The activities will still be clearly focussed around teaching the Bible and teaching girls and boys to know more of Jesus, but will have a new feel and format. As before, the children are encouraged to join us in church for the opening part of our morning service and then to go together for their activities. A slight change to this pattern is that the young people who attend Bible Class are now asked to come to church too, rather than going directly to the hall as before. If you have any queries please do speak to me, or to Sharon Maxwell, who will be coordinating arrangements for these activities.

Do remember though that learning and growing in our knowledge of the Bible is not just for those of school age! Our Small Groups provide a great way for us to meet together to learn more about what the Bible teaches us. This autumn we will be thinking about the work of the Holy Spirit (perhaps the least understood person of the Holy Trinity?) and discovering what exactly the Bible teaches us about his work in our lives. More details can be found elsewhere in the magazine.

Twice a month a group of parishioners meet to pray together at our PrayerPoint meetings in the Church Vestry. Some of those who attend pray out loud, others listen and pray silently with the group - we are glad to have all of them and we would love to welcome more of you to join us! Would you consider joining us for a short time on the first Monday or the third Tuesday evening of the month? We’d be glad to have you join in this vital part of our life together.

Finally, can I request your prayers for us as your clergy in the parish? We are most grateful for all the support and encouragement that we receive from you in the midst of the responsibilities that God has given us here in St Nicholas. This month particularly, would you pray for Cameron as he returns from leave and settles back into parish life, for me as I attend an Anglican leadership conference and for Brian as he goes later in the month to minister to a small congregation in the USA for a few weeks? Please pray for us for safety in travelling and in all our responsibilities and know that we will be praying for you.
With love in Jesus,

George

Saturday 22nd September at 7 pm
St Elizabeth’s Church, Dundonald
Speaker: Jamie Read

Children’s Outreach Mission, Tabora

Over the Summer I have had a number of requests for information about the recovery of Shadrack, Emmanuel’s father.  After a very uncertain few weeks he has made a good recovery with his loss of memory improving greatly.  He has begun riding his bicycle again which, for someone dependant on a bicycle for transport, is an important step forward.  A significant aspect of his recovery is that he has forgiven his attacker.  Emmanuel sends his thanks for all our prayers for his father.

With Emmanuel’s visits to his injured father, several planned summer activities were curtailed.  However, others such as the Good News Clubs went ahead as usual due to the dependable people in place who run them.

Emmanuel is never short of ideas for attracting children.  Some time ago he mentioned his desire to begin various sports and during the summer games of football, volleyball and basketball have begun.  Football is universal and needs no introduction, however volleyball is new and has to be taught.  Girls are learning netball and photos show enthusiastic participation.  The various sports are a means of attracting children to weekly training after which bible teaching will be introduced to them.

Another project Emmanuel is working on is to form a band.  Music is an important part of Tanzanian life and every church has several choirs and many musical instruments.  Practice takes  place under a convenient tree outside the church with amplification turned up to full volume!  At the moment he has an electric piano and a keyboard and ten trumpets!  He needs two more keyboards and pianos for the class he plans to run. 

Before Emmanuel began children’s work over 20 years ago, he completed an Advanced Diploma in Music with the Royal School of Music in London by correspondence course, passing with distinction grades one to five.  He is asking for our prayers for God to direct him as he seeks the wherewithal to get this project up and running.

I had mentioned in a previous magazine that Emmanuel and Elizabeth are to go for an interview with people who run a children's mission organisation in Kenya and Uganda called “Feed my Lambs”.  This meeting is to take place in Kampala, Uganda on 23rd September. (It was originally to have been in Nairobi but has been changed.)  Getting to Kampala involves two flights each way with a two day stopover between the connecting flights.  The alternative is to go by bus for seven hours to Mwanza then travel all night to arrive in Kampala at 9 am the next day.  Travel by bus is notoriously unreliable with frequent breakdowns.  If the costs could be met, clearly the flights alternative is the preferred option.

The purpose of the interview is to investigate the possibility of Emmanuel, together with Elizabeth, becoming part of an established mission organisation which would give support and oversight and encouragement to Emmanuel.  While Emmanuel has, under God’s guidance, brought the Children’s Outreach Mission to where it is today, largely on his own, and while he also has had the prayerful and financial support from St Nicholas’ and others, he would benefit greatly from the back up and support of others around him, not to mention encouragement when things don’t go well.  The “Feed my Lambs” organisation would also have a presence in Tanzania, through Emmanuel, the three countries being neighbours in East Africa.

This is an important interview and we must pray for discernment for both Emmanuel and Pamela of Feed my Lambs, to point to the suitability of this potential development for both parties and the enhancement of the Children’s Mission in that part of God’s World.
Lynn Rodgers

Small Groups

A new session of Small Groups will be starting this Autumn and new members of the groups will be very welcome. We meet at a variety of times and locations, so there’s bound to be one that suits you!

This time we are going to look together at what the Bible teaches us about the work of the Holy Spirit.

Christians and churches seem to have a variety of ideas about the Spirit. Some are always talking about gifts of the Spirit, baptism of the Spirit, Spirit-filled people and so on. In other circles, the Spirit seems to be rarely mentioned.

There are plenty of books around that will claim to offer insight into the work of the Spirit... but what does the Bible actually say on the subject?

These sessions have been put together from a survey of every single verse in the Bible that mentions the Holy Spirit and His activity. They will help us discover what God's Word means when it talks about being 'filled with' or 'led by' the Spirit. Or the differences between the Spirit's work in the Old and New Testaments. You may be in for some surprises!

But most of all, our group times will show how your life can and should be changed and shaped by the Spirit of God, who gives us life, and brings glory to Jesus Christ.

Do plan to join us - we’d love to see you! Ask any member of the clergy for details of the best group for you. We begin this series in the week beginning Sunday 9th September.

PRAYERPOINT

Our PrayerPoint schedule this autumn will follow a fortnightly pattern with a shorter Monday evening at the beginning of the month and a slightly longer time on a Tuesday night in the middle of the month. PrayerPoint evenings are your opportunity to join in prayer for the life and witness of St Nicholas’ and the church of Jesus Christ around the world.   Come on one of the evenings or come to both;
Come for the whole evening or come for a short time;
Come and pray aloud or in silence;
But come - we’ll be delighted to see you!

Prayer Diary – September 2018

The monthly Prayer Dairy included in Parish News is designed to help us pray each day of the month for a different aspect of our parish life, our community and our nation.  It also includes prayer for situations, communities and individuals in other parts of the world.  Each Prayer Diary begins with a Prayer of the Month.  Keep it to hand and use as part of your daily devotions.

A suggested pattern for daily devotions:

1. Read a portion of Scripture.
2. Thank God for what you have learned from His Word.
3. Confess your sin.
4. Use the Lord’s Prayer.
5. Use the Prayer of the Month.
6. Pray for others and for yourself, including the topic of the day.

Prayer of the Month
Almighty God, you have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless till we find our rest in you: Teach us to offer ourselves to your service, that there we may have your peace, and in the world to come may see you face to face; Through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

JAM - “Jesus and Me” is the new name for our Sunday morning activities for children at St Nicholas’ Church!

Sunday by Sunday our young people will find a range of activities - songs, games, crafts and stories which will help them understand more about what the Bible tells us about Jesus and his love for each one of us.

Each month there will be a theme from the Bible which the children and their leaders will explore together and we’ll enjoy learning about the things that God wants us to understand from his word.

There’ll be a warm welcome for each and every child and Mums and Dads, Grannies and Grandpas are asked to make sure that their little people don’t miss out on this great opportunity.

Sharon and Deriece will continue to be leading Bible Class activities for young people of secondary school age too.

Everyone is invited to come to church at 11 am on Sundays and then we’ll go across to the hall together. See you on the 9th of September!

Calling all Crafters, knitters, crocheters.

The Thursday morning craft group will begin its new session on September 13th at 10.00 am in the Minor Hall.  We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays in the month. Following a short Bible reading, one morning consists of making a craft item and the alternative morning we bring whatever project we may be working on at home and enjoy a good natter with a bit of craic.  Tea, coffee and a wee biscuit are part of the elevenses.

If you are free on Thursdays and enjoy some fun and fellowship, please come and join us and see what it is all about.  Although you may say, ‘I’m not good at craft things’, you might be surprised at what talents lie beneath the surface.

Should you require any further information do not hesitate to contact me, Janice Nelson.

Trip to Kildare Outlet

Some ladies in the congregation have expressed that they would like to travel to the Kildare Outlet again in November as we have done for the past two years.  The date this year is Saturday 17th November.  If anyone is interested in going, would you please give me names by the end of September ,in order that I know what size of a bus will be required.  Cost to be confirmed.

Please contact Janice Nelson

LAUGHLINES


Hearing is not believing 
A wise schoolteacher sent this note to all parents on the first day of school: ‘If you promise not to believe everything your child says happens at school, I’ll promise not to believe everything he or she says happens at home.’

Hear our prayer?  A five-year-old said grace at family dinner one night. ‘Dear God, thank you for these pancakes…’When he concluded, his parents asked him why he thanked God for pancakes when they were eating chicken.‘I wanted to see if He was paying attention tonight.’

Security

God knows the end from the beginning,
He knows His purposes are good.
When darkness hides the path and signposts,
He keeps our feet on the safe road.
His light shines in Jesus, true forever,
Darkness a trick of troubled minds,
God is real and travels with us
Guards our steps before, behind.
Let’s be thankful for this moment,
Trust our questions to His grace,
He knows the end from the beginning,
We are secure, He has a place…
Prepared and waiting and beautiful,
For His children.                By Daphne Kitching

Back to School—and daily life


Most Christians don’t really believe that the ordinary things they do every day have anything much to do with God’s purposes in time and eternity. But the reality is that God can and does work through His people… among the people they naturally meet, doing the things they normally do.’ (Mark Greene).

September is the time when we get back to our normal routines after the summer break. It’s a good opportunity to ask how God wants us to make a difference in our workplace, school, family or with friends. Paul writes:

‘And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.’ (Colossians 3:17).

As disciples, we are called to do the ordinary things in the name of Jesus, i.e. act in the way Jesus would in our situation.

‘WHATEVER you do’: God is at work in every aspect of our lives. He can use whatever we do to make a difference to those around. Do we believe this? Our lives shouldn’t be like an orange, segmented into the sacred and secular, but more like an apple, in which the whole is available to God.

‘Whatever YOU do’: God wants to use us to make a difference to the people and places where we spend time. We can trust Him for the resources we need hour by hour, day by day, year by year. What do we need from Him?

‘Whatever you DO’: Our work is for God alone, out of gratitude for God’s love for us. How does this perspective make a difference when what we do seems hard, unrewarding, or unappreciated by others?
‘Work doesn’t take us away from God; it continues the work of God.’ (Eugene Peterson).

CALLING ALL SINGERS!

As the new session approaches, we would
welcome any new members into our church choir, especially male voices.

However, we do recognise that many of you would enjoy the fellowship, camaraderie and 'craic' we have at practices but cannot afford the time to commit to this on a permanent basis, so we would, once again, offer the opportunity for anyone who enjoys singing to attend for about
4 weeks in preparation for the harvest services, when the choir takes a larger role than usual.
Anyone interested in joining us, either on a
temporary or permanent basis, please come along to the church on
Wednesday 12th September at 8 pm.
Hope to see you there.  Alison


If any parishioner known to you is sick or in hospital, please contact the church office or the clergy so that they may be visited. 
Thank you
