It is interesting for us to know what the Parish Magazine was like in 1914. The pictures here show the front and back covers of the magazine for January 1914.

The only information relating to Norwell is on these two pages. the rest is The Church Monthly and it is the same for churches all over the country. 

It contains ‘improving’ articles like ‘The Good Citizen’, ‘Good Service’ and ‘How to increase Church Attendance on Sundays’. Also included are poems, puzzles, recipes, drawings and four pages of a story ‘The wedding of Cecily Westcott’ – it was only when I got to the last page of this gripping story that I noticed ‘to be continued’, so now I shall never know what happened to poor Cecily.

Rather prescient is the verse chosen in the magazine as the motto for the year in 1914 ‘Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.‘
