Coffee Evening

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! 

Outing to Brecon Mountain Railway

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!

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!

Star-Trekking

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.
