What is now becoming an annual event, the Church Christmas Party took place last Sunday, 16th December with about forty attending. Who said the age groups can’t have fun together? The youngest was 18 months and the oldest 86 yrs. Who said Party Games were old hat? We played some of the oldest Party Games and enjoyed every minute. Who thought the old fashioned Sunday tea no longer happened? Well it still can and we all enjoyed sandwiches, pork pies, fairy cakes, scones and clotted cream, mince pies and Chapel Tea! Conway Road has re-invented fun! The children ran round and round. The old ones chatted in the corner and we all found we were still highly competitive. At the end we all went home tired but happy and the children clutched their presents. How many will be opened on Christmas Day?
A good crowd of thirty plus people gathered on the steps of Conway Road Methodist Church to sing carols on Monday evening – ably accompanied by the Barry Brass band. Many of the old traditional carols were sung – with descants included – the players and singers were then treated to mulled punch and mince pies.
A lovely evening – enjoyed by all – including the local community!
Conway Road held a wonderful concert with Sororitas Female Voice Choir on Saturday the 8th December. The repertoire included a few favourites from previous years, with a good selection of new songs, and a lovely new arrangement of an old favourite – O Holy Night. The Concert opened with a dramatic entrance of the choir, carrying candles into the Church, up and over the pulpit, laying them to brighten the Church during the Concert. The audience enjoyed a new comic number – Dominick the Donkey – a real favourite, particularly with the younger members of the audience.
A fabulous £670 was raised by the event for Bowel Cancer UK
