This Week and in the Future……
The Diary for Ladies Guild shows ‘A Passage to India’ as the subject Lesley Mower Hill has chosen – an intriguing title. All ladies are welcome to join us at 2pm in the church.
This week on Thursday at 7.30pm at The Muni we will be able to see Aisha Namaani doing what she loves – dancing! When the National Dance Company Wales present ‘Roots’
Roots is an evening consisting of 3 pieces of dance. The pieces are all contemporary dance but very different styles from funny and charter driven, to powerful and purely dynamic. £12.00 Adult, £9 concession, £8 group bookings.
Our next Church Meeting will be on Sunday 25th November. Please make a note of the date!
A Church Weekend has been booked at Coleg Trefeca, Talgarth February 22nd to 24th 2019. The cost for the full weekend is £110 per person. For Saturday only with lunch it is £36, or with lunch and supper £45. The sign-up sheet is on the table, please add your name if you are interested.
Don’t forget to allow plenty of time to park as many will be gathering for a service at St Catherine’s at 10am prior to the parade at 10.40 along Gelliwastad Road, Pontypridd to Ynysangharad War Memorial Park for the Service at the War Memorial.
PCW Mission Appeal: Lynda Bull will accept your donations for the annual appeal for PCW’s mission and outreach work at home and overseas.
There are a wide variety of Handmade Christmas cards for sale from today, ranging from Traditional, Religious, Snowy scenes and Cute n Cuddly cards.
Also available are some Christmas cards with Welsh sentiments on. As usual, all proceeds raised from the sale of the cards will be given to the Church.
With just 7 weeks to Christmas and thoughts of Christmas dinners, please, when you are shopping this week remember those who will struggle to put food on the table and pick up an extra item or two for the food bank.
In October we donated 50kg of food and £60 to the foodbank. Let’s see if we can match that in November.
Who to contact! While Phil is on leave the Elders will be the first point of contact if there are any problems. A list of Elders is on the notice board.
