We welcome you all to our services today, especially if you are a visitor or worshipping with us for the first time. Our service this morning is being lead by Phil and we pray that we may all be uplifted by the spirit of Pentecost.
This evening we shall continue the Pentecost experience as we join with Pontypridd Christians Together at Capel Rhondda for ‘Pentecost Praise’
The Copper Pot is, as usual, on the table; so don’t take your ‘small change’ home with you, put it in the pot, where it will be used for local charities.
Hand-made cards are available at the back of the church. If you want a card for special occasions – just ask!
