This week’s newsletter Sunday 12th February 2023

Dear friends


Welcome to this week’s newsletter, a copy of which is attached along with an array of posters advertising the various events happening throughout Dyffryn Clwyd Mission Area.


Please note that due to the length of the Genesis reading, the Psalm 136.1-9, 23-26 and the epistle, Romans 8.18-25 have been omitted. The Genesis reading has passages where God speaks and is italicised to facilitate reading by two readers.


Moving on to the countless events happening throughout the Mission Area, thank you so much to everyone who is getting in touch with me to let me know what you have planned when and where. As you will see from the numerous posters attached, we’re all impressively busy! If you’re planning on running special services, events, fundraising activities, or simply anything which others in the MA would like to attend (there’s lots, I’m sure!), then please let me know as I will gladly spread the word. My email is and new mobile number is 07543 504486.
