Dear Friends, please find below a message from Tad Huw.
In addition to this week’s newsletter there are a few events coming up this weekend.
In Dyffryn Clwyd you can join:
- Teen Screen for our young people on Friday evening at 10 Mwrog St from 7.00 pm.
- Visit gardens in Llanarmon as part of the Open Garden Scheme, on Saturday afternoon, from 12 noon onwards.
- Wild church in Llanbedr church yard on Saturday afternoon from 2.00 pm.
We are looking for volunteers to help with Café Cof on a Monday afternoon in Llangynhafal church. This is a drop-in event for people with dementia and their carers. Help is needed with teas and coffees, companionship and conversation. If you like jigsaws or board games there is plenty to keep you busy. Please contact Rev Natasha if you would like to find out more on 07984 604 878
We have been changing the layout of the newsletter over the last couple of weeks to try and fit on it as much ‘news’ as we can. There will always be the services for the following Sunday-with readings. The regular week day services appear next. Then the regular activities and events that occur weekly – followed by the one-off event, meeting or activity for the following week.
We hope this will help when looking for information and a big thank you goes to Paul Chamberlain who still acts as principle editor and puts it together.
and finally from Tad Huw…………………..
By now I’m sure many of you have heard Rev’d Stuart’s announcement that he will be retiring. His final farewell service will be on 27th of November at 6pm in St Peter’s Ruthin. Over the coming months I’m sure you will all wish to give him your thanks for his 12 years of ministry, first in the town churches of Ruthin and latterly as part of the Dyffryn Clwyd team. Over the years Rev’d Stuart will have touched many lives and I know the love with which he is held by you all.
Rev’d Stuart has graciously given us 5 months notice which means we have time to plan for the future. The advantage of the Mission Area means that it will not be like the old days, there will be no interregnum, instead the Mission Area Ministry Team will adapt to ensure continuity of worship & ministry for all our churches. Please do hold Rev’d Stuart in your prayers as he prepares for a new and exciting chapter, and also for the Ministry Team and Mission Area Conference who in the coming months will be looking at ministry provision for the future.
Mission Area Leader of Dyffryn Clwyd
