ECR Winter Appeal
The "Honesty Table" raised a total of £300 this winter which has been sent directly to ECR. Paul responded by emailing: Many thanks again for this support...you lot have been extraordinarily generous this year. May God bless you all for your compassion for our kids & families. Our thanks to everyone who has been a part of it.
Please Note: There is no meeting this morning (3rd Feb) but we will be here at 6pm as usual
On 13th January @ 6pm our speaker will be Jeff Hankins. Jeff is an old friend (not too old!) having been a member here for some years before leaving for pastures new.
On 27th January @ 6pm our speaker will be Hilda Tiley.
A reminder that our Community Coffee Morning resumes on Tuesday 8th January @ 10pm following the Christmas break. We hope to see you there.
A Happy New Year!
We go into 2019 with plans, ideas and also the understanding that none of us know the days that will unfold for us. As a nation we are in uncharted waters, with few signs of consensus , either amongst the politicians who lead the country, or the wider public. As a church we are called to pray for those in authority. As citizens in a democracy we should engage with the process and make our voice heard. But as citizens of God's Kingdom, we are reminded that the Emmanuel ("God with us") of the Nativity is the same Emmanuel who has promised never to leave us or forsake us.
We go into the New Year with vision, with hope & expectation, with plans for self, families and the church which we want to see fulfilled. But above all we go forward, walking in faith, knowing that the Lord is our Shepherd, we are his flock, the sheep of his pasture, and the year will bring nothing that we should be fearful of. We go with a song in our hearts and a hymn of praise on our lips, we have a Saviour and we have a gospel to proclaim! May His kingdom come, His will be done, on earth as it is in heaven, even in our valleys in our generation. Wishing you every blessing for 2019
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given.The government shall be upon his shoulders and he shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6)

August Bank Holiday
There will be no Coffee Morning on Tuesday 28th August or Bible Study on Wednesday 29th August. Sunday meetings continue as usual. Coffee Morning and Bible Study will resume in September as normal.
We said farewell to the Y6 children from Ysgol Trelyn at their final Coffee Morning before they head off to Cwm Rhymni in September. Each pupil was given an NIV New Testament as a gift from the church. "Hwyl fawr ffrindiau!"
