Russell Watson at St. Tudno’s, 15 September 2019

St. Tudno’s was delighted to welcome Russell Watson, James Leggate and a film crew who were recording a conversation between Russell and James. Look out for this on BBC’s “Songs of Praise” in late October or early November. It was a great pleasure to meet all the team and show everyone around the church before the recording began.

It’s Your Neighbourhood award for St. Tudno’s, September 2019

Congratulations to the Friends of St. Tudno’s for a “Thriving” award in the RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood scheme. The churchyard is managed to encourage wildlife and a highlight this year was a large population of cinnabar moth caterpillars. The photographs show some of the wildlife spotted during late summer.

Kylie’s Visit

What a pleasure to be able to arrange something so simple during our weekly practice but which meant so much to one local lady.Kylie had a tough time as a youngster after being diagnosed with a serious illness but this day (16 August) was the anniversary of her being clear. Thirty years ago a bell was not rung to mark such a landmark but tonight she achieved her ambition and did ring a bell at Holy Trinity.

It was wonderful to see the smile on Kylie’s face and we were delighted to help Kylie to achieve her quest to ring a bell. It was also good that some of her relations and friends came along to witness the moment.

Kylie, we all at Holy Trinity bell tower, wish you well in the future.

Stan Whittaker, Tower Captain

Bible study groups, beginning September 2019

There will be two informal Bible study groups beginning in September, meeting fortnightly on Monday mornings and Thursday evenings, to give a choice of times. Discussions may be related to the Bible reading series currently being followed by the Ministry Area: “The Road is Made for Walking”. Everyone is welcome to join these explorations of the Bible in “user friendly” sessions by commenting or simply listening.  Please contact us for details of times and venues.

Songs of Praise at St. Tudno’s, 18 August 2019

The annual Songs of Praise service was held in the church, rather than being an open air service as planned, due to very strong winds. This year the service had the theme of “love” and members of the congregation introduced hymns which made them think of this. The service was attended by the Mayor of Llandudno, Cllr Angela O’Grady, Mayoress Cllr Janet Jones, and the current Miss Alice, shown in the below with the Vicar after the service.
