January 2018 - with best wishes for a blessed New Year!
Bible Studies begin again on Wed 3rd January @ 7pm
We will begin the year by studying I & II Thessalonians. Two of the earliest epistles to the New Testament church, with much encouragement and advice which is still relevant today.
Coffee Mornings start again on Tuesday 9th Jan @ 10am.
Pop in for a cuppa, a chat, a chance to meet new friends. There is no cost, only a warm welcome. We end the morning with an opportunity to sing and to pray, for those who wish to join in.
Jeff Hankins will be speaking at our evening meeting on Sunday 14th Jan @ 6pm
Hopefully, with guitar in hand, he will be singing too! Since his last planned visit was halted by snow, we look froward to fellowship & ministry on 14th.
Last month we were able to send £250 to ECR in support of their Winter Fuel Appeal.
Thank you to everyone who gave via the gift table. Find out more about Paul and the team on our community page. The table is staying put for a few weeks, should anyone want to "recycle" any Christmas gifts.....
Please take time to read our latest newsletter. It includes:
An update on our successful harvest for Rainbow of Hope;
Our global economy and the ability to have fresh produce in store all through the year may have "blurred" the concept of seasons. But we still use the opportunity to celebrate God's goodness to us and to appreciate the abundance of His blessing.
The pupils of YG Trelyn will also be holding their Harvest Assemblies at the church during the week. The school are joining the church once again in supporting Rainbow of Hope
We collect a "dry" harvest of rice, pasta, tea, coffee, tins & packets which can make their way down to Cardiff where Rainbow of Hope will use them to feed people - perhaps in the nightly soup kitchen or in the charity's HQ in Broadway.
In September ITV news ran a series of "stories from the street" about the increasing homeless problem. Their coverage included an interview with Liz at the Broadway Centre.
We encourage you to join us in the Harvest Celebration. Perhaps you can donate some food, or even some time working on the ground in Cardiff. We would love to see you in Ebenezer on 29th October!

We have just said "Goodbye!" to Year 6 from YG Trelyn as they enjoyed their last coffee morning before heading off to Cwm Rhymni in September
This is the 6th year we have been working with KS2 pupils from Trelyn. The work done, the seeds sown and the barriers broken down have been life-changing, in many ways. Its about inclusion, inter-generational, belonging.
Coffee Morning will continue throughout the summer, with the exception of 29th August. Why not pop in for a cuppa?
Remember, everything is free, its really not about money!
Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. (Psalm 100)
ECR - Spring Update - April 2017
Paul has sent an update from Romania as winter ends and spring begins.
It is encouraging to see the work that is going on, including the new "Light-4-Life" project involving candle making. It aims to give the young women skills and an income to avoid the trappings of people trafficking, an ever-increasing problem.
