Family and friends came together to celebrate harvest festival. There were various activities to suit all ages. There was glitter fruit and veg for the young (at heart!) We had bread making and biscuit decorating. Especially enjoyed as the end results were edible! Arts and crafts included making treasure chests and decorating a chest to put in the treasure trove. The treasure trove was the setting for a story and songs in which everyone had an exhilarating time!
Back downstairs we gathered together again to partake in a tea of sandwiches and cakes.
Thank you to everyone who helped organise. Tom would like to know when the next event is please?!
The annual coffee evening held by Jennifer and Michael Langham on 23rd August was a happy, sociable occasion as usual.
An impressive total of £160 for church funds was raised on the night and thanks are extended to all who contributed and attended. Special mention must be made of the magnificent ginger flapjacks!
Conway 50+ Wednesday Group enjoyed a day out to the Brecon Mountain Railway (26th July 2017). Even though the weather was wet and misty it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of Group members with a happy bus trip through the Taff Valley to Merthyr, a ride on a steam train past Pontsticill Reservoir followed by a Buffet Lunch at Pant Station with plenty of time to chat!
Conway Road Methodist Church family went on a lion hunt on Sunday 7th May.
There were trees and lion masks and jungle pictures to be made, lion biscuits to ice and faces to paint.
A very busy afternoon was had by all – followed by songs and an excellent retelling of the story of Daniel, and his amazing faith in God, by Rev. Paul Martin
The afternoon finished with a picnic tea in the Church hall – all packed in your own jungle box.
Great fun – see you at our next event for harvest – Sunday 8th October!
Christ is risen – he is risen indeed! Our beautiful Easter cross covered in flowers.
Junior Church member, Jack Brown, and his friend Scott Griffin were hailed as heroes by 89 yr old Mr Ken Goodwin,who they found after he had fallen and was bleeding profusely.The boys acted quickly and calmly and summoned an ambulance and called Mr Goodwin's wife. Details ofthe incident are given in the attached South Wales Echo report of 30th March. The Church is proud of the boys and congratulates Jack. Well done!
On Sunday 20th November fun was had by all at a family Star-Trekking event. Stars were made from card and sequins, black paper and tissue, wire and wool and even cookie dough. All generations were there – grandchildren through to grandparents – and many amazing stars were made. Phil, our minister, then told us all a star-trekking story about some very strange wise men who went searching for the baby Jesus. The afternoon ended with a fabulous tea – all set out in beautiful star boxes – to which all of the Church were invited.
The stars are now on display in the stable at the Church as part of the decoration of the Church for Christmas – to remind us all to follow the star to the stable at Christmas.
