16th April 2023
Our service today is our monthly ZOOM Service; log in opens at 10.30 for pre service chat. We look forward to catching up with those who are unable to worship with us in person.
Our service, will be led by our good friend Gwen Simmonds. Gwen is no stranger to Zoomers and has led more than one post Easter Service. The service, which will be available later on YouTube, will start at 10.45.
We thank Bethan for facilitating our Zoom Service.
At the same time, for those who don’t have internet access or prefer ‘live’ worship there is an alternative service at St David’s. We thank Michael for facilitating the in-house service.
Whichever service you join we hope that you will feel the warmth of fellowship with friends.
Church Family and Pastoral News
We include this in the news sheet to inform our prayers:
- We continue to think of Graham, Janice and the family as they prepare to say their final Goodbye to Mair. The funeral will be held at Glyntaf on Thursday 20th at 2.15pm.
- We remember those who are unwell and are being cared for in their homes, we hold them and those who care for them in our prayer.
- We were sorry to hear that Beti has Covid, and hope she will soon be able to get out and about.
- Colleen has had a new date for her scan, we pray that it won’t be postponed again.
- Brian is still in RGH, but is much improved and will hopefully be discharged this week.
Thanks for Services
Many comments have been made about our Holy Week and Easter Services. The service on Tuesday when Sue shared pictures of Holy week events – the window displays were truly spectacular (photographs are in the Hall). The Maundy Thursday Communion led by Simon was described by one person as amazing, and was so inspiring. Good Friday’s Service and the fantastic PowerPoint which Robert had prepared was another excellent service. Easter Day started with Breakfast and worship ably led by Claire, then our Easter Day worship with communion, involved many people, two at short notice due to illness. We had a truly marvellous and inspiring week. Thanks to ALL who made it happen.
