 *************************************************************************************

St Cuthbert's congregation

said 'Goodbye' to

The Rev'd Robert Williamson

on Sunday the 13th November

Every Good Wish goes with him in his

'New Pasture'

............................................

 The Institution of Rev. Robert Williamson as Vicar of the

Parish of the Thorntons and the Otteringtons, North Yorkshire.

The service took place at 3.00pm on Saturday 3rd September at

St. Andrew's South Otterington and with the Bishop of Whitby presiding.



 
Mammoth Task Comes To An End

Six years of painstaking work came to a conclusion on Sunday 23rd October, when members of the

 Church Recording team made a formal presentation
of the two-volume description of the interior and contents of St.
Cuthbert’s Church  at the morning service. 

The team of 30 recorders, ably led by Dr. Rosalind
Platts, included members of the church congregation, students and
members of the North Yorkshire and South Durham(NYSD) branch of the
National Association of Decorative and Fine
Arts Societies (NADFAS). The printing and binding of the final product
was funded by the Friends of St. Cuthbert’s Church.

The presentation was attended by the Area Chairman of
NADFAS, Mrs. Elizabeth Evans , the Chairman of the NYSD branch , Mrs.
Christine Mackinnon and the Chairman of the Friends of St Cuthbert’s
Church, Mrs. Milly Stoney

The record, with its illustrations and detailed
background of each item, will be an invaluable resource for research
both within the church itself and further afield, as on line copies are
now held by the Victoria and Albert Museum,
English Heritage, the Durham Archives and central NADFAS. It has
already proved its worth , according to a church member, enabling a
missing document to be located with relative ease.

The two volumes, beautifully printed and bound. All the costs were met by the friends of St. Cuthbert’s.

And then there was cake . . . . . . .!

  • St Cuthbert

    Open our eyes, Lord,
    to see your glory;
    Open our ears, Lord,
    to hear your call;
    Open our lips, Lord,
    to sing your praises.
    Then guide us on our
    pilgrimage of faith,
    that with the memory
    of Cuthbert in our minds,
    and the spirit of Cuthbert
    in our hearts,
    we may walk with Him who is
    the Way, the Truth and the Life,
    and find our freedom in His service;
    even our Lord and Saviour
    JESUS CHRIST.
