Church Chat

7 03 2011

We are approaching Lent and Easter, special times in the Christian faith. Easter is a time of renewal and joy, which is hopefully reflected in Church and Chapel.

In St Mary’s we lead in with a change of worship pattern at Church: the 6th March sees our first “Family/Children Eucharist” service at 11.15am. We will be seeing this as a “1st Sunday of the month” fixture in the Church calendar, so please spread the word and bring everyone with you to COME and SEE! As they say, “the CH..CH is nothing unless UR in it”.

On a more formal note, please consider our appeal for nominations to PCC. Our Churches cannot survive without the help of committed Christians who are prepared to come onboard and help by attending Church and being members of the Parochial Church Council. You can put yourself forward, or you can nominate someone who you think could help, by contacting the Vicar or Churchwardens. NOW!!!

In “Church Chat” it should also be mentioned, for general information to all, that, following recent oil thefts our Church has implemented security measures advised by police and local council. A shame this has to be done, but hopefully our measures, up and running, will help those in the community to feel more safe in the face of criminal activity. As a Deanery (Churches up and down our area) we are all doing something to help communities to avoid future suffering. The message is, to be entirely brutal: “don’t try to nick our oil, ‘cos you’ll be done”!

I’m doing Church Chat for Nercwys News at the moment, but maybe it would be more appropriate for another who loves the Church to volunteer to take on this regular spot for Nercwys News. Let us know!

A Christmas Message from the Vicarage:

13 12 2010

Tour companies do a wonderful job around this time of year; good value
“Turkey & Tinsel” trips – two, three, four days, and whatever week it is it’s
Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, with all
the attached feasts and merriment. What a wonderful idea, and how much happiness
is provided. There are even “Post Christmas Turkey & Tinsel” trips, where we can
We join in the feasting as we celebrate in joy, in awe and thanksgiving, Jesus Christ, Son of God,
born of Mary. It’s a chance for us to worship God in faith, fellowship and love, in Church and Chapel.
Join us and all the world, in the celebration of God in us!
With very blessing and good wishes from John and family at Treuddyn Vicarage.

St Mary’s remembrance garden

1 04 2010

This coming Sunday Is EASTER DAY, and as part of our celebrations at St. Mary’s we will be dedicating the newly-refurbished garden area near the Church entrance, as a memorial area, for Mary Jones (Plas Draw), Richard Hobhouse, Andy Rogers, and in joyful remembrance of all who have passed on to the glory of God’s heavenly
kingdom. Bring along potted plants, flowers, annuals, perennials, etc, to help us to enjoy a worthy place of
remembrance of God’s love.
The Blessing and Dedication of the refurbished area will take place as an extension of our Easter Day Service which
begins at 11.15am.
