Hello. A Lincoln hospital chaplain who's gay is demanding the Church

:00:08.:00:18.

Churches and cathedrals across this area are holding services to

:00:19.:00:20.

mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the first World War

:00:21.:00:23.

Anne`Marie Tasker is in Sle`ford tonight.

:00:24.:00:25.

200 people shared a poignant moment at 10pm when the lights herd were

:00:26.:00:42.

turned out. At the moment, we can hear a reading. It is part of a

:00:43.:00:48.

special service being held here at St Denys' Church tonight to mark 100

:00:49.:00:50.

years to the our since Brit`in went years to the our since Brit`in went

:00:51.:00:57.

to war with Germany. As the lights were turned out,

candles burnt in St Denys' Church in Sleaford, a gesture repeated across

:01:03.:01:06.

the country to mark the outbreak of war 100 years ago. As news spread

that Britain was at war with Germany, the Foreign Secret`ry

that Britain was at war with Germany, the Foreign Secretary said,

:01:14.:01:13.

Germany, the Foreign Secret`ry said, the lamps are going out over Europe,

:01:14.:01:18.

we shall not see them at a game in our lifetime. Those words,

:01:19.:01:22.

inspiration for tonight's commemoration.

:01:23.:01:27.

Young men joined up with their friends, they were excited, it was

an adventure. They are expected to be home by Christmas. In thd midst

:01:35.:01:35.

of that excitement, there were be home by Christmas. In the midst

:01:36.:01:36.

of that excitement, there were those left behind wondering if thdir

:01:37.:01:41.

children would come home. We will play music that was popular

:01:42.:01:46.

at the time, for people back home. I hope that people in the audience

:01:47.:01:49.

join in and commemorate that. Tonight's service includes music,

:01:50.:02:11.

poetry and this marker of an unknown soldier, one of 132 men frol

soldier, one of 132 men from Sleaford killed in the war. The

lights have also been turned out on Skegness seafront. There is just a

:02:22.:02:27.

single light on the clock face with a hand struck at ten p.m., to

:02:28.:02:31.

encourage people to stop and remember. In Lincoln, a single light

:02:32.:02:36.

has been left on in the cathedral. In Beverley, a special ceremony has

:02:37.:02:46.

been held. In Sleaford, this service continues until 11 p.m., whdn

last of these candles will be extinguished. A moment to rdflect

:02:50.:02:55.

extinguished. A moment to reflect one of the darkest period in

:02:56.:02:56.

Europe's history. A Lincoln hospital chaplain

:02:57.:03:06.

who's gay is demanding the Church of England urgently examines why he

:03:07.:03:09.

was blocked from a job In April, Canon Jeremy Pembdrton

:03:10.:03:11.

was the first Church of England He was then banned from holding

:03:12.:03:15.

services by his Bishop. Now a hospital trust says the same

:03:16.:03:20.

Bishop has refused to Licence England's greatest controversies.

:03:21.:03:23.

Gay marriage became legal in England and Wales earlier this year.

:03:24.:03:35.

And Canon Jeremy Pemberton, seen first

:03:36.:03:37.

Church of England clergyman to marry a man, his long`term partner

:03:38.:03:47.

Laurence Cunningham. But now

:03:48.:03:49.

the marriage has cost him a job. He was offered the role of chaplain

:03:50.:03:51.

and bereavement manager at the Trust in Nottinham, but the offer

:03:52.:03:54.

was withdrawn after the Bishop refused to grant him a licence in

:03:55.:03:58.

the area. Speaking from abroad, Canon Pemberton gave me his

:03:59.:04:01.

reaction. I think the Church of England is

:04:02.:04:02.

clearly behind the curve in relation to where society is, becausd I think

:04:03.:04:06.

for most people ` not everybody, some people don't like the hdea of

:04:07.:04:14.

same`sex marriage ` but most people regard it as a completely

:04:15.:04:17.

uncontroversial thing now, I think. In a statement, the Right Rdverend

:04:18.:04:19.

Richard Inwood, the acting Bishop The Trust also declined an interview

:04:20.:04:22.

but said: Pemberton currently works as a

:04:23.:04:53.

hospital chaplain, we asked if people minded having a gay man in

:04:54.:04:58.

the clergy. It doesn't bother me one bit. Each

:04:59.:05:00.

to their own. Just personally, I don't

:05:01.:05:06.

particularly like it. No. Why should

:05:07.:05:08.

it bother anyone? It's 2014. And some within the church are

:05:09.:05:12.

calling for a change in atthtude. gay couples, priests within the

:05:13.:05:16.

church should marry, should commit themselves to each other, should

:05:17.:05:29.

legalise their relationship, and of course in Christian terms, it's far

:05:30.:05:31.

better to be married than to be cohabiting with someone or to be

:05:32.:05:34.

living, as the church would put it, living in sin, which is what the

:05:35.:05:42.

church is continue with his role in

:05:43.:05:44.

Lincolnshire, but wants church leaders to look again

:05:45.:05:49.

at their attitude to gay marriage. Tonight I spoke to Andrew Marsh from

:05:50.:05:56.

a group which campaigns to see Britain return to the Christian

:05:57.:05:59.

faith. I asked him whether Jeremy Pemberton was right to say the

:06:00.:06:02.

church was "behind the curvd." On the

:06:03.:06:13.

contrary. I think on this, society in this country in recent ddcades is

:06:14.:06:15.

the steady but deliberate dismantling of different aspects of

:06:16.:06:19.

marriage, and this has been a regressive rather than a progressive

:06:20.:06:22.

step. are very different. Even the bishops

:06:23.:06:24.

can't agree on this one, can they? The critical thing to recognise is

:06:25.:06:31.

it is not the role of the church to follow

:06:32.:06:35.

up every trend in society. The church belongs to God and its first

:06:36.:06:41.

responsibility is to listen to him and to hold out the good

:06:42.:06:44.

pattern he has, for society, and the

:06:45.:06:51.

good news of rescue from de`th and judgement and broken

:06:52.:06:54.

relationships to society. As I say, one bishop said that

:06:55.:06:57.

and then the Bishop of Lincoln hasn't revoked Canon Pemberton's

:06:58.:07:09.

licence, so it's very hard to know The Bishop of Southwell and

:07:10.:07:12.

Nottingham is to be commenddd on taking this decision, sad as it is.

:07:13.:07:15.

It does raise the question of what will happen and whether the Bishop

:07:16.:07:19.

of Lincoln will take the action that is

:07:20.:07:20.

necessary to ensure clarity and A million`pound scheme to protect

to homes and businesses. The work should be

completed next year. It's understood that talks have

begun with Lincolnshire County Council over the

:08:03.:08:04.

future of local libraries. There's been a long campaign to save

:08:05.:08:07.

the service. Last month,

:08:08.:08:08.

a High Court Judge ruled th`t the council unlawfully decided to hand

:08:09.:08:11.
