St. Tudno’s services and Events, June 2019

Regular opening and services

The church is open every day during summer and open air services are held each Sunday at 12.00 noon; on 2 and 19 June the service will include a simple celebration of Communion. A free taxi will depart from Holy Trinity at 11.30 am and if the weather is bad the service will be held in the church. On Tuesday 2 June there will be a service of Compline by Candlelight at 7.30 pm. This is a short, peaceful service and a chance for some quiet reflection in this wonderful setting.

St. Tudno’s Day

Wednesday 5 June is St. Tudno’s Day and this will be celebrated with the annual Pilgrimage Walk and Eucharist. The Pilgrimage will begin at Holy Trinity at 9.30 am and we will walk along the Prom. and up the Orme via the Camera Obscura and Ski Slope. There will be Stations for prayer and reflection along the way and we will visit St. Tudno’s Well by kind permission of the landowners. The walk can be a bit rough, so stout footwear is recommended and some people take part in only sections of the walk – please contact us if you would like more details of the route. The Patronal Eucharist will be held in St. Tudno’s Church at 12.30 pm; if you would like to bring a picnic to eat afterwards, drinks will be provided.

Great Get Together

We will again be taking part in the national Great Get Together event, organised by the Jo Cox Foundation and inspired by her words “we have more in common than divides us”. There will be a special open air service at 3.00 pm on Sunday 23 June, followed by a bring-and-share picnic (all in the church if the weather is bad). Do come along and bring your friends and neighbours – everybody is welcome.

Friends of St. Tudno’s events

On Thursday 13 June we will welcome the Great Orme Exploration Society for a churchyard tour at 7.00 pm. On Saturday 15 June we will be having a geology guided walk around the churchyard at 2.00 pm. All welcome at both events.

The Feast of Life

Debuted at the 2000 Los Angeles Religious Education Congress, The Feast of Life reminds us of the fourteen banquets mentioned in Luke’s Gospel and invites us once again to hear and experience the stories of Jesus. In this musical by Marty Haugen, a diverse group of adults and children gather around a banquet table to retell the parables in Luke’s Gospel. The group tells and sings of “The Good Samaritan”, “The Prodigal Son”, “The Journey to Emmaus”, and other parables, as well as the birth and the Passion of Jesus.

The performance on Sunday 26 May at 3.00 pm will be at Holy Trinity Church (Anglican/Church in Wales), Mostyn Street, Llandudno.

The performance on Sunday 2 June at 5.00 pm will be at Gloddaeth Church (English Presbyterian/United Reform), Chapel Street, Llandudno.

Entry is free. There will be a voluntary retiring collection.
