October 1955: Clergy: Vicar: The Reverend Canon E. G. Manby, B.A., A.K.C. Tel.: Pudsey 3802; The Reverend L. E. Pfankuch; The Vicar’s Letter: Well over a hundred people must have attended our ‘School of Evangelism’ at one session or another. If you did not come you certainly missed something which was instructive, encouraging and challenging. The Provost provided us with a general picture of the need for Evangelism and gave us the reasons why ‘Every Churchman should be an Evangelist’. Canon Sephton tackled the difficult task of the place of the laity in Evangelism. It is a difficult question because most people have the idea that this is just the parson’s job and very few folk have yet had the courage to examine this question closely and realistically. The Reverend L. Barker stirred us with a vision of what a team of Parochial Visitors could do, and the Reverend J. G. Byrnell gave us a truly wonderful address on ‘How to win Men for Christ’. … E. G. Manby
