Welcome, everyone who joins us for worship on, what is called, Low Sunday in the Christian Calendar. But we pray that we shall all continue to experience the joy of Easter as Iestyn leads us this morning and Fr Andrew Davies leads our Evening service
Our Evening worship at Church House will include the celebration of the Lords supper, when all are invited to share the bread and wine with us.
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.
