Ruth’s Ordination

On Sunday June 19th 2011 at 10 am in the glorious York Minster, Ruth Newton was ordained as priest by the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu.  Four carloads of Bishop Burton parishioners including representatives from the Chapel travelled to York to support her.

 

Ruth has been taking our services and leading our worship in Bishop Burton for over a year now while completing her training to become a priest.  It was a wonderful service in a packed Minster led by the diminutive charismatic Archbishop who with his usual flair encouraged us all to support our newly ordained priests with a resounding “WE WILL!!”  It was truly inspiring to see people from all walks of life choosing to dedicate their lives to Christian ministry by becoming ordained.

 

Many of us have already met Ruth both in church and as she goes around the village on her pastoral visits. Her warm and vibrant personality will be a huge asset for us all in the parish of Bishop Burton. We are very lucky to have her to keep our church going in these difficult times.

 

Thank you Ruth.  Congratulations and Good Luck!

ALL SAINTS’ CHURCH

It is a year now since I wrote my first article for the village magazine, for I have been here in Bishop Burton as curate now for 1 year this month. Such a lot of special memories to be thankful for during the past twelve months but mostly the warm welcome that I have received wherever I have visited and I thank you all for your kind hospitality. Last Sunday 19th June many of you attended York Minster for the occasion of my ordination to the priesthood, it was a really joyful service even the cold day could not detract from the warmth of feeling within the Minster and thank you all for your prayers and support.

The focus for our sermons from July will be based on readings from the Bible recommended in a pattern from Scripture Union ‘Essential 100’. There are one hundred readings from start to finish of the Bible to give an overall view of what the Bible is all about, telling our Christian story. The suggestion is that you read the recommended piece, daily from the Bible. There will be 5 readings for the week leaving Saturday for ‘catch up’ and then the person preaching the following Sunday will preach on one of the readings. The first sermon using this publication will be on 10th July and will be on the subject of Creation. I do hope that you will be able to find the time to enrich your pilgrimage journey.

Please find below the readings for the first week, if you would like to follow this pattern please contact me and I will send you all the Bible readings for July and August.
