We extend a warm welcome to everyone who joins us for worship today, especially if you are a visitor or worshipping with us for the first time.
We give a special welcome to Dave Kitchen who is leading our service on, what is called, Low Sunday in the Christian Calendar, Dave is no stranger to us and we pray that we shall all continue to experience the joy of Easter as he leads our worship.
Fair-traded refreshments will be served in the hall following the morning service and handmade cards will also be available. We invite you to join us for this time of informal fellowship.
Our ‘Copper Pot’ and Foodbank boxes are in the usual places waiting for your donations. Monetary donations for the Foodbank can be given to Alan

People to hold in your thoughts and prayers today and during this week:
- We continue to keep Marlene Rayner and her family in our thoughts as they prepare for Gwyn’s funeral on Monday 16th April, 1.30pm at Glyn Taf
- We also hold the family of Olwen Nash in our thoughts as they prepare for Olwen’s funeral on Wednesday 18th April, 2.15pm at Glyn Taf.
- Caroline is now out of hospital and is staying at Bay View Lodge, Rhoose.
- We think of those we know who are currently visiting the Holy Land and visiting the places they have read about.
Being tough is no guarantee that you’ll succeed.
Plan things out and take plenty of advice.
That’s what gets you from the start to the finish line.

Thought for the Week
Stop running from your problems. – Face them head on. No, it won’t be easy. There is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them. We aren’t supposed to be able to instantly solve problems. That’s not how we’re made. In fact, we’re made to get upset, sad, hurt, stumble and fall. Because that’s the whole purpose of living – to face problems, learn, adapt, and solve them over the course of time. This is what ultimately molds us into the person we become.
