We extend a warm welcome to everyone who joins us for worship today, Trinity Sunday, if you are a visitor or worshipping with us for the first time we hope you will feel the warmth of our welcome and will return again soon.
We especially welcome Ashlee and James with Oscar and their family and friends as they bring their daughter Eva for a service of thanksgiving.
Our minister is leading both our services today and our evening worship will be a ‘Reflection on Music and Faith’ when we will welcome our friends from the Uniting Churches in Canton, Cowbridge and Llanedyrn for this special service.
Following the service we will be entertained by ’Cellikatessen’, a group of student cellists and one double bass from Southern Germany.
Admission is free – but donations for church funds will be welcome.
The concert will start at 7.30pm and should finish at about 8.30pm.
Refreshments will be served before the concert all are welcome to join us for this time of fellowship.

AGM – A message from Phil
“I hope we are all looking forward to tomorrow’s AGM! Thanks to all those who have written reports for the meeting – your work helps to ensure that we all know what we are doing, what we can celebrate and what we might strive for as we look back over the past year and forward to the year ahead. With summaries written, in order to enable the best use of time, we will not be looking for extensive additional comments on the reports, but if report-writers can think of one thing they would like to celebrate/thank God for arising from their work, this would be welcomed, alongside any relevant questions from the rest of the congregation. Diolch – and here’s to tomorrow.”
