Welcome! If you are a visitor or worshiping with us for the first time, we hope you will feel the warmth of our welcome and return again soon.
Our service this morning is being led by Gwen Simmonds, (Gwen the clarinet); Gwen first worshiped with us when she was a student at the University of Glamorgan and for several years played the clarinet with Unedig, a group of 6 instrumentalists led by Cerys. Gwen has maintained her links with us, it is good to welcome her and her eldest child Dominic.
Fair-traded refreshments will be served in the hall following the morning service. We invite you to join us for this time of informal fellowship and take time to look at the handmade cards which are on sale.
As always the Copper pot is on the table at the back of the church waiting for your coppers, which will eventually benefit local charities.

This Week and in the future
Sunday July 21st…
In the morning, we will be joined by Miara from Madagascar who will be sharing with us what the past 8 years as a missionary in Penrhys have been like. Those wanting to hear more about Madagascar are invited to join him in Penrhys at 2:30pm for a talk all about the country. As next weekend also marks the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, at 4pm on Sunday we will be screening a drama which charts those first iconic steps for our film and chat afternoon (certificate 12) before exploring the subject further on the following Sunday…
Ladies Guild members – a date for your diaries! We have planned an Italian Style afternoon tea on July 31st which will be followed by a film. More details next week!
More than half a million of these went to children. With our help, we can ensure that hunger and poverty in the UK will become a thing of the past. Together, we can build a future where nobody ever needs to visit a food bank. BUT until that happens please continue to donate in whatever way you choose.
Diolch yn fawr – a huge thanks to Beverley, Robert, Lynda and everyone who was involved in Wednesday’s magnificent primary school concert hosted by us. The chosen theme was ‘Our Planet Matters’ – we were inspired by poets, entranced by singers and even, at one point, challenged by angels (with wings!) who had come to remind us to look after God’s creation. A wonderful evening all round!
Birthday meals. As just a few people signed up for the July Birthday meal so it has been decided to cancel the July dates and combine July and August birthdays. The new sign-up sheet is at the back of the church.
Suggested dates are :- Lunch on Thursday 1st, Evening Meal on Thursday 8th or Lunch on Sunday 11th.
As the schools are nearing the end of term and many are preparing to go on holidays if you have anything to share in the news sheet – exciting family events, events happening in the community, even a funny story, anything…..please pass it to Marcia…some weeks we are short on news and a funny tale may be just the tonic someone needs!

Without wood, a fire goes out;
Without gossip, arguments fade away.
