PROCEEDINGS OF SOCIETIES.

INCORPORATED SOCIETY FOR PROMOTING THE ENLARGEMENT, BUILDING, AND REPAIRING OF CHURCHES AND CHAPELS.

A MEETING of this Society was held at their Chambers in St. Martin's-place, on Monday, the 19th of December, 1842, Newell Connop, jun. Esq., the Treasurer, in the chair; there were also present, the Revs. H. H. Norris and Benj. Harrison; J. Round, M.P., J. W. Bowden, S. F. Wood, Benj. Harrison, Wm. Davis, Wm. Cotton, Esqrs., &c.

After the Secretary had read the reports of the Sub-Committees, the General Committee proceeded to consider the cases referred to them, and voted grants for the following purposes :

Towards repewing the church at Long Stanton, Salop; enlarging by rebuilding the chapel at Kentish town, in the parish of St. Pancras, Middlesex; building a chapel at North Moor Green, in the parish of North Petherton, Somerset ; repewing the church at St. Sampson's, Cornwall; repewing the church at Bromham, Wilts; repewing the church of All Saints, Leicester; building a chapel at Brown Edge, in the parish of Nortonin-the-Moors, Staffordshire; removing gallery, and erecting new seats, in the cburch at Hinxton, Cambridgeshire; restoring a ruined church at Llandevand, Monmouthshire; building a church at Yeovil, Somerset.

The population of these places is 151,239 persons, for whom church-room is now provided to the extent of 21,850

sittings, of which 5166 are free; with the assistance of this Society, 2774 additional sittings will be added to the above amount of church accommodation, of which number 2162 will be free and unappropriated for ever. One of these parishes, St. Pancras, London, contains a population of 129,598 persons, with church-room for about 18,000 of that number; the united population of four other parishes is 18,383 persons, with church-accommodation for only 3050 of that number.

Certificates of the completion of the erection, enlargement, &c. of churches or chapels, in twenty parishes, were examined and approved, and the Committee issued warrants to the Treasurer for the payment of the sum awarded in each case. The population of these twenty parishes is 36,189 persons, for whom church-accommodation to the extent of 8721 sittings only was provided, previously to the execution of the works towards which-the Society's aid was afforded, including 3817 free seats; the united population of six of these places was 23,596 persons, with sittings for only 5960 of that number. To this very scanty provision, 5162 sittings have now been added, 3613 of which are free and unappropriated for ever.

The number of applications for aid from the Society, received since the 31st

of March last, is 112; grants have been voted in seventy cases, and ten applications for aid are now under the examination of the Sub-Committee of Correspondence and Inquiry.

The Treasurer reported that the amount of outstanding grants is 48,505l., while the sum at the disposal of the Society is only 41,8167., shewing a deticiency of 6,6897.

"1st. That, at the conclusion of the sermon, the Clergyman do return to the altar, and there read one or more of the Offertory Sentences, then the Prayer for the Church Militant, then one of the Collects, and so conclude with the Blessing; and that for the more convenient following of this course, the Clergyman do preach in his surplice in the morning, as recommended in the Charge.

DIOCESAN INTELLIGENCE.' GLOUCESTER AND BRISTOL.-Bristol. -Among the alterations which have lately been effected in the parish church of St. Augustine, the most striking is the erection of a very elegant gothic pulpit and reading-desk, of carved oak, (at a cost of more than 1507.,) the gift of two of the parishioners. At the same time were presented to the church a most costly and beautiful set of books for the desk and altar services, by two other individuals of the parish. And lastly, a well-known benevolent lady of the same parish has just given orders for clothing, at her own sole expense, the whole of the children of the parochial school--in number 108.-From a Correspondent.

LONDON. Weekly Offertory. - This primitive usage of the Church was simultaneously restored in the parish churches of Dunton, Orsetto, Stifford, and Aveley, Essex, on Sunday, the 6th inst.

When

it is considered how many things there are in connexion with the sacred edifices themselves which church-rates do not provide for, especially in these days, when the "screw" is so vigorously applied by dissenting and other agitators at parish vestries; when, moreover, it is considered how many wants are felt by the church at large, which nothing but systematic benevolence can adequately provide for ; it is surely time for the clergy at large to return to this rubrical as well as primitive practice, the Church's own mode of gathering the pious offerings of her children, leaving to schismatics the bald heterodoxy, and the pride and vain glory of subscription lists.

Ordinances of the Church.-We have great pleasure in presenting our readers with the following Resolutions, passed by several of the Clergy of Chelmsford and its vicinity, after hearing the Bishop's Charge.

"At a Meeting of many of the Clergy attending the Bishop's Visitation at Chelmsford, assembled to consider of the steps which should be taken in order to carry into effect with one accord in their respective parishes the recommendations and directions of the Charge touching the Ordinances of the Church, it was agreed that the fittest course will be to revive immediately the following ancient practices according to the Rubric:

"2d. That divine service be performed on all the saints' days in the calendar; and that due notice be given on Sundays, after the Nicene Creed, of all saints' days and fast days in the current week, in some such form as the following:

Friday, being the festival of Saint Simon and Saint Jude, is appointed to be observed as a holiday; divine service will be celebrated on that day at 11 o'clock; the even or vigil before that day is to be observed as a fast.'

"3d. That, according to the 18th Canon, referred to by the Bishop, the Clergyman do set the example to the congregation of bowing reverently whenever the holy name of Jesus is mentioned.

"4th. That no psalms or hymns be sung before the commencement of divine service. "5th. That the Clergyman officiating do give out all psalms, hymns, and notices, himself. "6th. That the prayers for those to be admitted to holy orders, be daily used in the Ember Weeks.

7th. The whole of the marriage service being to be used, that the first part of it be read, as directed, in the body of the Church, the clergyman reciting the psalm as he walks to the

altar.

"8th. That the Holy Communion be administered more frequently than heretofore.-N.B. In some of the parishes it will in future be celebrated monthly, and in some of the smaller parishes eight times in the year, with a prospect of still further advancement hereafter.

"9th. That whenever the Holy Communion is announced, the whole of the notice be read.

"10th. That the elements of bread and wine be put on the table by the Clergyman before the prayer for the Church Militant, as directed by the Rubric; the Clerk bringing them to the rails, or the Clergyman fetching them from the Vestry, as may be most convenient."

"Chelmsford, October 20th, 1842."

- A new

NORWICH. - Woodbridge. stained-glass window has lately been erected in the chancel of the church, at the expense of George Thomas, Esq. It embodies emblems of the four Evangelists. On the top of the tracery is St. George's Cross. Underneath are four shields; the first, a yellow cross on white ground; the second, an emblem of the Trinity on white ground; the third, the scourge, the spear, and the sponge; the fourth, the crown of thorns. And in the lower part of the tracery, in the centre of the window, is a dove on blue

ground, with a glory round its head. The size of the window is about 14ft. by 8ft., and is of most exquisite manufacture, the colours being peculiarly vivid. It forms altogether a most beautiful addition to this fine church, and was manufactured by Mr. Willement, of London, who has lately furnished ornamental windows to the Temple church and St. George's chapel, Windsor.

WINCHESTER.-St. Saviour's Church-It was the intention of several of the inhabitants of the parish of St. Saviour, Southwark, to give a performance of Sacred Music in the church for the benefit of the Parochial and National Schools. Arrangements had been made with Miss Birch, Miss Dolby, Mr. Hobbs, Mr. Novello, and Mr. Surman. Large posting bills were prepared and published. We are happy, however, to say, that the intention having reached the ears of the Lord Bishop of Winchester, his lordship wrote to the Rev. William Curling, commanding that no such performance should take place. We trust these abominations will be as resolutely put down elsewhere.

YORK.-Burton Agnes.-In this ancient, but rural village, the seat of a baronet, and the residence of the archdeacon of the East Riding, is a neat parish church, of the gothic order, dedicated to Saint Martin, which appears to have graced that village for the last seven or eight

hundred years; but in the lapse of years the interior has undergone many alterations, which had hidden from the view its original beauty. The archdeacon, with his usual zeal for the beautifying and restoring the churches in his archdeaconry, has restored this ancient edifice by clearing away the underdrawing, and exposing the roof and the handsome gothic windows; he has opened out the noble arch between the belfry and the church, and the columns which support the six arches of the north and south aisles have been restored to their original state. The ancient font, which had been cast away nearly a century ago, is put again into its own place. A neat organ has been set up. The alteration at the first was somewhat objected to by some of the parishioners, who thought the church would never look so well again; but now, on the contrary, they admire the archdeacon's taste, and think it is very much improved. The whole has been done at the archdeacon's own expense, excepting the putting in of two new plain windows. The chancel is reserved for still greater improvement and more marked beauty. The church was re-opened for divine service on Sunday the 4th inst., and the various chants were performed by the National-school boys, accompanied by the fine tones of the organ. The service was performed by the venerable archdeacon, and the Revs. J. Skinner and G. Boynton, and was more than ordinarily impressive.

MISCELLANEOUS.

"The

Duties of Churchwardens. churchwardens are by law the Bishop's parochial officers; as such they are put in charge of the fabric of the church, and all its furniture. The fabric they are bound to see kept in fit repair, and, with the churchyard, free from all profane uses whatever. The furniture of the church is also in their charge, and they are to provide whatever is needful for the public worship of God according to the rites of the English Church. Thus they have been called of old wardens of the goodes, workis, and ornamentes of the Church.' This is here the limit of their authority; they are to preserve, not to alter or to alienate; they have no power to part with any of the church goods, or to permit any addition to or alteration of the fabric within or without, unless they have the Bishop's license for such alteration. This I desire especially to press upon the wardens. If, without

the sanction of the ordinary, they permit any changes to be made in the churches under their care, whether effected under the name of repairs or not, whether with or without the sanction of the vestry, they are doing an illegal act, for the penalties of which they render themselves responsible."

"In every existing pew within the body of the church which is not held by a faculty or by prescription, they can, as the Bishop's officers, and subject to an appeal to him, seat any parishioner. This power they are bound to exercise so as to accommodate the greatest number, regarding, as far as possible, the convenience of all, and not wantonly disturbing any who have been seated by their predecessors. But they have no power to build any new pew, or to enlarge one already existing, or to turn a free sitting into a pew, or to give permission to another party to erect one for himself,
