15th July 2018
Welcome! to everyone who has joined us today, as we continue our thanksgiving for the NHS within our worship.
We extend a special welcome to our invited guests
We will celebrate the Lord’s supper during the service and all are invited to share in the bread and wine.
After a busy few days (especially for Phil) and in consideration that both the Wimbledon Men’s Singles Final and the World Cup Final will run over our usual film and chat time, we have decided to cancel it for this month, giving everyone the chance to enjoy the sport, the sunshine or just a good rest!
All are invited to join us in the hall following the service when tea and coffee will be served and handmade cards will be on sale.
Today is your last chance to write a message on a ‘God Bless the NHS’ card and put them in the basket on the table
Hymns: 310 – Lord, for the years, we bring our thanks today.
354 Now thank we all our God
We, your children
From heaven all healing flows

There will be a Fairtrade stall. The Fairtrade group in RCT is very small and they rely on kind hearted and generous supporters to help at big events. If you can help at Ynysyngharad Park on August 4th or 5th, please contact Marcia
In approximately 6 weeks’ time the Spragg family will be with us! They are keen cyclists….. we think we may have two bicycles, but they will need to be checked out for size and condition! Does anyone else have a cycle hiding in their garage that they are willing to loan for the family to use? We also need helmets! They could also benefit from the use of a car – so if you know of a car that’s not being used or cycles that can be loaned please let Lynda know!
As the school holidays start and children will not have access to school meals the demand at the Foodbank will table and purchase an item so they will not go hungry.
The Red Box quietly ensures that no young person misses school because they have their period. RCT. Working as a nationwide community, the Red Box Project seeks to provide free sanitary items for the young people in schools.
They are looking to put boxes in as many schools in RCT as possible for the academic year 2018/2019
Will you pledge to help? Pledgers would be asked to donate one pack of sanitary towels every month and two 4 packs of underwear a year.
We hope to have a box at the back of the church soon!
Are you aware that Harvest Book Shop was opened 32 years ago? The premises they now operate from was bought under the auspices of Pontypridd Christian Concern, and several Christians committed to contributing on a monthly basis to cover the mortgage and running costs.
Not many towns have this facility. So, if you if you need Bibles for adults or Children, Christian books, Music or ‘special occasion ‘gifts pop into Harvest and see what they have. Items not in stock can be ordered.

Thought for the Week
The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age,
which means never losing your enthusiasm.
