Church Family News
Good News! John and June have another Grandchild, Nia gave birth to a girl, Gwenan – weighing 6lb 11 ½oz , early on Friday, 4th September, our love and congratulations to Nia and Dafydd. We are also pleased to say that David is now home, we continue to hold him and Maralyn in our prayers. Unfortunately Haydn has had a slight set back and will return to hospital for a couple of days, but on a brighter note we share Hilary and Haydn’s joy that their son Jonathan has been appointed Medical Director at Princess of Wales Hospital.

Inspired by the ‘Bake Off’, between September and Christmas, everyone will be welcomed round for an evening of chatting and cheesecake. All you are asked to do is to bring round your favourite dessert to share and an item to show which tells us something about you (it could be a photograph, favourite book, childhood toy, holiday souvenir or something completely different) and we’ll get to know each other a little better…whilst eating!
