Occasions – Birthdays, Anniversaries, etc.

Remembering Church Family Events Thank you to Ann Lee for 22 years of sending cards on behalf of the church to members celebrating special birthdays and anniversaries.  This role has now been taken over by Mary Smith.  We already have some dates for those who are part of Pastoral Link and chose to give details to Link leaders, but there will now be forms in church, so that everyone on our Family Roll, who wishes to be included, can let us have their dates.  We also like to send a card and message to church members who are ill, in hospital, or have lost a very close relative.  We can only do this if we know about it, so it would be very helpful if you, or someone in your family, could let Mary know - tel: 834717) .

Alternatively you can fill in an online form HERE and send it by email.

It was with great sadness that we said our goodbyes to Andy and Kath at their final ‘farewell’ service on Sunday 13th October. The theme of the service was ‘living water’ and this theme was accented by many tears shed during the day. Andy preached, as he said, one of his longest ever sermons but it only seemed like seconds, as we were all aware that it would be his last as vicar of St. David’s.

Goodbye (for now) Andy and Kath. It has been our privilege and blessing to have had you as our spiritual leaders the last seven years.

We wish you every blessing for the future as your hearts continue to be filled with streams of ‘living water’.


Churches Together events in 2020


There was going to be  a week long event at the end of May, but this has now been changed due to a change in the council plans. There will be a Picnic in the Park event to recognise VE Day. Churches together have suggested that we run a free tea/coffee/cake tent (subject to clarification by the council).

The council is also planning a church service on Sunday 10th May.
