15th April 2018
We offer a warm welcome to you all today, especially if you are a visitor, or worshipping with us for the first time, we hope your visit will be memorable and you will return again soon.
We are very pleased that Iestyn is leading our service this morning while Phil is still on holiday.
We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper during the morning service and all are welcome to share in the bread and wine.
Our ‘Copper Pot’ is on the table waiting for your ‘small change’, and there are Food Bank boxes in the Hall and the Church, where your donations can be placed.
Fair-traded refreshments will be served in the hall following the morning service and homemade cards will be on display. We invite you to join us for this time of informal fellowship.
‘Lord God, help me to ‘pray as if everything depended on God;
but work as if everything depended on me.’ Amen
(from the words of St Augustine).
