Church Family News
We include this in the newsheet to inform our prayers during the week. This week, we sadly report that after being re-admitted to hospital last weekend Joyce Morgan passed away late on Tuesday. Joyce been part of our Church family for many years, and we will miss her quiet presence (and her welsh cakes!). Our thought and prayers are with her son John and those who were close to her. We remember too others who recently been bereaved.
We also ask your prayers for those concerned for family members who are hospital or awaiting treatment and we continue to hold Caroline, Russell, Enid, Margaret J and Roger in our prayers.
Dates for your Diary
Thursday 9th June BWMS Meeting
This will be the final meeting of the group. The address will be given by Mrs Sheila Grant and a tribute to all who have served in the auxiliary for over 60 years will be given by Mrs Bernice Davies. Refreshments will be served after the meeting.
Friday 10th June 7.30 pm Ny Ako
The group from Madagascar will be at St David’s Uniting Church soon!
Miara from Penrhys says: “I’m very excited for their visit here in UK and especially in Wales. It is an opportunity for us Malagasy people to give back to the Welsh people for their great contribution in sending many missionaries to Madagascar in the past. It witnesses to the fruits of their work nearly 200 years later.
People know Madagascar because of the cartoon, but the group Ny Ako will show people the real image of Madagascar!”
Come and join them for an evening of music, dance and with refreshments and crafts for sale. Free entry Donations welcome.
