17th April 2017 EASTER DAY
Welcome to you all on this Day of Resurrection, especially if you are a visitor or worshipping with us for the first time. As Phil leads us, we pray that we shall all know the reality of Jesus’ presence.
This morning’s service includes the celebration of the Lord’s Supper, and everyone in the congregation is invited to share in the Bread and Wine with us.
This evening we will meet at Church House at 6pm when Iestyn will lead us in our Emmaus Walk as we walk and talk and then join in worship and share communion together.
Following this morning’s service you are welcome to stay and chat but the kitchen will be closed, so there will not be any tea or coffee.
Our ‘Copper Pot’ is on the table waiting for your ‘small change’, the money is donated to ‘local’ charities; if you have any suggestions for a worthy charity please tell Claire Hughes
Phil is on leave until early May, during this time the Elders will deal with all pastoral concerns and will be available to deal with any urgent matters.

We continue to hold Simon in our prayers as he ‘rests!’ before returning to work. Caroline continues to make progress, and would welcome visitors! Eirwen is at home and getting stronger. We remember them all in our prayers. We also think of those known to us who are waiting for surgery, those who are struggling to remember and ALL who would love to be able worship with us.
