Celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday

The Parish Social & Fundraising committee were delighted to raise £320 for Marie Curie at the Queen's Birthday garden party held at St Tydfil's on 4th June. As always there was a lovely spread and a special treat of 'fizz' to drink! We're so grateful to all the committee members for their hard work in the parish and the lovely events we get to enjoy. Cheers!

Fr Mark is Mayor Margaret Davies's Chaplain

Did you know that Fr Mark has again been invited to serve as Mayor's Chaplain, this time to Mayor Margaret Davies? During her year of office, the Mayor will be busy raising funds for her chosen local charity, which is Prince Charles Hospital. All funds raised will go towards purchasing essential equipment for the hospital - a very worthy cause which we will all benefit from either directly or indirectly when we or our families use the hospital. 

Messy Church is fun for everyone!

Messy Church is for fun for everyone of all ages whether you attend traditional church or not. It's all about Jesus our Lord and Saviour and is based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. So far we have held two events at St Tydfil's and they have been a great success. The first Messy Church took place during Mission Week and was about The Road to Emmaus. The second event took place on 2nd July and was an exciting beach party, all about Jesus and his disciples being 'Fishers of Men'. Do join us next time for Messy Church Christingle!

Mothers' Union meet every Monday at 2pm in St David's Church, except during August. Everyone is welcome to join and help support this international charity whose patron is Her Majesty the Queen.
