Improvements All Saints' Church   Parish Questionnaire: Friends of All Saints' Church have discussed improvements for the Church.

Phased work
2008 plans
All Saints' Church  

Broad Chalke Church Development Project

Phase 1 - An improved lighting system, now complete

Phase 2 - Improvements to the hearing loop system, upgrading the sound system and the integration of an audio-visual system, all now in hand including finance

Phase 3 - New heating system; fundraising will be required

Project details displayed in the porch in 2008 now seem to be a long-term plan, only partly implemented in the three phases described above. The plans included replacing central pews with seats; a new square centre altar; new vestry; additional storage; other relocations; improved lighting and heating using ground heat reclamation; inner glass doors to South Porch and an extension with kitchen and toilet through the North door. These were the three 2008 proposals: Church Upgrade 2008 (Potential Changes); Church Upgrade 2008 (Flexibility 1) and Church Upgrade 2008 (Flexibility 2);

Rick Williams

The following announcement from Rick Williams and his wife, Mary Frost, was made in church this morning.

Catherine & Jenny

Announcement

Rick and Mary are moving on. Mary has been offered a new job in Bristol and Rick has been given the opportunity to combine parish ministry with art and writing in the Wickwar Benefice.

Rick says:
"The Chalke Valley has been a wonderful place to live and work in over the past three-and-a-half years. This short period has been a time of dramatic change in my personal life, and I have been grateful for the friendship and support of the people here and the welcome they have extended to both myself and Mary. I am sorry to leave such a special place, but this provides the opportunity for Mary to move to a job she will find much more fulfilling.
My own post will be a House-for-Duty one, requiring part-time ministry and therefore giving me an opportunity to also spend time on my art and writing. The benefice is centred on Wickwar, our own house will be in Charfield, one of the team villages, just off the M5 north of Bristol, close to Chipping Sodbury and Wotton-under-Edge.
I shall be leaving just after Easter, so will still be able to play my part in all the exciting plans we have for Lent this year."

Catherine and Jenny say
"We were sad but not surprised when Rick said he was moving on. We know Mary has skills that are highly sought after in aviation engineering and the best of these roles are in Bristol. Then, when Rick was offered a role in the Wickwar Benefice that gives him time to nourish his artistic skills, it was inevitable he would leave us.
Our first concern is for Rick and Mary as they go, they will need help and encouragement as they begin this new phase in their lives.
As for the churches in the benefice, remember Jeremiah 29: 11 'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future'. So, we are in safe hands as we begin a new chapter too."

Rick's last Sunday will be April 30th. More details about the arrangements for this will follow shortly.

Church History

The Church History is shown on the Chalke Valley Church website.

Sunday School 1909 & 1914

An extract from South Wilts Church Magazine February 1909:-

"The Sunday School Winter treat took place at the school on Wednesday, January 6th. After tea, to which the mothers of the children were also invited, games were indulged in, at the close of which presents were distributed to each child. Before giving away these presents the Vicar announced that next Christmas prizes would be given to those deserving of merit, and that to secure a prize a child would have to put in at least 45 attendances during the year."

An extract from South Wilts Church Magazine March 1909:-

"The Countess of Pembroke again very kindly presented three books as prizes for attendance and needlework in the school, these were supplemented by prizes most generously given by Mr Eastham. The following were the recipients of Lady Pembrokes's and Mr Eastham's prizes: Reginald Hitchings (for attendance), Lily Dimmer (for needlework) and Harry Poole, William Gurd, Ada Emm, Edith White (for attendance and conduct)."

An extract from South Wilts Church Magazine January 1914:-

"PRIZE GIVING. - At the closing of the school for the Christmas holidays the three special prizes so kindly given by the Lady Pembroke were awarded to Mollie Martin, Stanley Dowsett and James Emm. George Hargreave also received a prize for good attendance. Two other boys who had made a perfect attendance generously volunteered to waive their claim to these special prizes as they had previously won one. This is a kind of spirit we love to see and admire in the rising generation."

First World War History

You can see entries for The First World War concerning enlisting and the Armistice in the South Wilts Church Magazine 1914-1918 and the Peace Treaty and the War Memorial in the South Wilts Church Magazine 1919-1921.
