1934: The Town Church, St Peter Port, Guernsey

Mystery Worshipper: Shaun the Sheep (with assistance from Tirzah and TME).

The church: The Town Church, St Peter Port, Guernsey.
Denomination: Church of England, Diocese of Winchester.

The building: The Parish Church of St Peter Port, usually referred to as the Town Church and also informally known as the cathedral of the Islands, was first referred to in Norman times.

The church is built of granite and originally served as a fortress.

The present steeple dates from 1721, though there are parts of the existing church that date back to the 13th and 14th centuries (nave and choir respectively).

Extensive restoration took place in the 19th century, and some of the stained glass dates back to this time.

However, most of the stained glass windows were blown out during World War II when the Allies bombed the harbour, mistakenly believing that there was a German submarine there.

The small windows at the top withstood the blast and so they remained the Victorian originals, but most of the larger pieces of glass lower down are post-war in vintage.

The church: As the unofficial cathedral of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the church is something of a must-see for many of the thousands of tourists who visit Guernsey each year.

Unfortunately, due to the lack of an online presence, it has been difficult to find much information about the church as a community, although it would appear that music plays an important role in the life of the church.

The neighbourhood: The Bailiwicks of Guernsey and Jersey comprise the Channel Islands, which lie in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy.

They were the only British territories within Europe to be occupied by German forces during World War II, and were not liberated until 1945.

The two bailiwicks are Crown Protectorates, independent from Great Britain but relying on the Crown for their defence.

Guernsey and Jersey are also independent of each other, sharing no common laws, elections or representative bodies.

Guernsey was occupied by the French during the Hundred Years War, and the French influence on the island's culture is strong even to this day.

St Peter Port is the capital town of Guernsey.

The Town Church is right by the harbour and a focal point in the town.

The population of the island is around 60,000, although this is considerably swelled by the tourists who visit each year.

The cast: We did not think to copy this information from the church notice board, as we had assumed we would find it online!

However, the celebrant was the rector of the church, whose name we could only work out to be Father Paul.

He was assisted by a deacon whose name we could not ascertain; the deacon also preached the sermon.

The date & time: Easter Sunday, 4 April 2010, 10.30am.

What was the name of the service?

Easter Eucharist.

How full was the building?
Mostly full – we estimated between 150 and 180 people.

It wasn't bulging at the seams, but there were few obvious empty spaces.

Did anyone welcome you personally?

A sidesperson wished us happy Easter, asked if we were part of a large party they were expecting, and directed us to a pew at the side when he learnt that we were not.

With the addition of our party, our pew got quite cosy (see below), so there was some good-natured shuffling going on which punctured the formality a bit.

Was your pew comfortable?

There were in total five adults sitting on a standard wooden pew, which probably would have been more comfortable with four.

The kneelers were very large and quite high, which meant that one of our party was unable to fit his feet comfortably between pew and kneeler.

As I was sitting at the end of the pew, I got increasingly uncomfortable as time went on and was very aware of the lack of room to change position!

How would you describe the pre-service atmosphere?

There was unobtrusive organ music in the background.

Mostly the congregation were chatty but not excessively noisy, wishing each other a happy Easter.

I could also hear bells, but am not sure that they were from this particular church.

What were the exact opening words of the service?

"A very joyful and happy Easter to you all."

What books did the congregation use during the service?

A preprinted booklet with the liturgy, hymns and responses all contained therein.

What musical instruments were played?

A fine organ accompanying an excellent robed choir.

Did anything distract you?

One of our party was distracted by the beautiful stained glass window opposite, which in the morning sunlight was really quite breathtaking.

There was also a couple with a baby opposite who kept taking the baby out during the service (although she was behaving beautifully), which got a bit distracting.

As we were seated behind the pulpit, I also found myself distracted by a rather sour-faced saint (perhaps a bishop, as he was wearing a mitre) carved into the side of the pul

What's in a name?

What's in a name?

Last week's passage (Exodus 1:8-2:10) was the famous baby Moses passage. Our pastor focused on the naming of Moses, which means saved or pulled out of the water. Our pastor talked about how Moses was no greater than any of us, yet God chose to use him for great things.

This week's passage (Exodus 3:1-15) fast forwards to the beginning of that greatness. In this famous passage, Moses sees the burning bush, and God tells him that he will be used to save the people of Israel. Moses asks God what he should say to the people when then ask who sent him. God replies, "Tell them I-AM-WHO-I-AM. Tell the People of Israel, 'I-AM sent me to you."

Now even though God's response is quite confusing to me I think I was struck by the fact that this passage also deals with an important name.

This week at my school's opening inservice a speaker asked us to think about our many names. He encouraged us to write our obituaries keeping in mind the names we want to be called. I couldn't help but think of the person God has called me to be and I was inspired to give it a go. There's still a lot of work left to do, but this is my start:

Heidi Painter--

Heidi strived to be genuine in all her relationships. She gave her life to the Lord as a sophomore in high school, and that decision guided the rest of her life, from meeting her husband, Danny, to her decision to become an English teacher.

Heidi was a fierce friend and a jovial companion. She cared deeply about the other people in her life. She loved to laugh and play silly games with her son and husband.. She liked to dance, drink tea, eat cookies and watch movies or TV. She could be quoted as saying, "I love to see anything that shows a transformation."

Heidi could often be caught reading a book or writing something on the computer. She enjoyed using her creativity to try new recipes or plan exciting new projects for her students.

Heidi left these words to sum up her life: I worked hard, loved deeply, danced frequently, and laughed often.

This is still a work in progress, but a fun exercise which made me think. It's so hard to put some things that seem to make up so much of my life into words. How does one explain the joy of snuggling with their child on the couch or the silliness of the games we play, like steal the freckles? How can one begin to boil down 8 years of love into words that define a marriage? I guess that's the limit of a name. Maybe that's why God takes on the name of "I AM".
