Organ recital, 10 July

editor : July 21, 2018 10:37 am : Latest, TrinityPrevious

The Church was full to capacity (someone counted 174) for our Grand Re-opening Lunch-time Organ Concert on Tuesday, 10 July when international concert organist, Paul Carr, gave the organ a thorough work-out with a programme ranging from virtuoso French organ showpieces, grand Bach, a British Trumpet Voluntary, music for a Clock Organ by Haydn, a Jazz inspired Chorale from Germany and the serene “The peace may be exchanged” by American composer Dan Locklair. I am pleased to report that the organ coped admirably with the wonderful variety of this music and Paul said how thrilled he was to be playing the organ again, now that everything is working (last time he came, his practice had to be interrupted whilst the organ builder patched up a serious problem). Paul responded to the rapturous applause at the end with a very quirky encore, the “Serenade” by Derek Bourgeois which brought a smile to everyone’s face. A very happy and successful occasion including a record breaking collection for one of our recitals of £555.

We now look forward to our annual Summer Lunch-time Organ Concerts on the four Tuesdays in August at 1.00 p.m. which this year take on an international flavour as we have Concert Organist Alessandro Bianchi from Italy playing for the third recital on 21 August.

Friends of St. Tudno’s Pilgrimage, Friday 13 July 2018

editor : June 26, 2018 5:18 pm : FriendsInAction, Latest, TudnosForthcoming

The Friends welcome you to join us for our Pilgrimage on Friday 13 July. We will leave Holy Trinity at 9.00 am, travelling first to St. Dyfnog’s Church at Llanrhaeadr-yng-Nghinmeirch, near Denbigh, where we will be given a tour of the church and an explanation of the beautiful Jesse Window, which dates from 1533. There will be an opportunity to visit St. Dyfnog’s Well but this is optional as the path is very rough.  While in the village, there will be a demonstration at the Anvil Pottery and tea / coffee will be available at the King’s Head pub. From Llanrhaeadr we will climb (in the cars!) up to 1400’ (427 m) above sea level to the Ponderosa Cafe at the head of the Horseshoe Pass. Popular with motorcyclists, the “recce” party found this to provide a variety of good value snacks and meals, with fast service. We will then descend through the dramatic Horseshoe Pass to the atmospheric ruins of Valle Crucis Abbey, just outside Llangollen. After exploring the Abbey we will continue to our final destination, nearby Llantysilio Church. There will be time here to look around the church and take a walk to the lovely Horseshoe Falls. During the day, Pilgrim Prayers will be said along the way and we will finish with a short service in Llantysilio church, after which the people of the parish will very kindly serve tea and scones.

Costs for the day will be as follow. Tea / coffee at Llanrhaeadr: £2.00. Lunch at the Ponderosa Cafe: various prices starting at about £6.00 for sandwiches and a cake. Entry to Valle Crucis Abbey: Adult £4.00; Senior £3.20; Cadw card holders free. In addition, we will be asking for a small donation to both churches which we will visit. If you would like come on the Pilgrimage, please contact St. Tudno’s.

Great Get Together at St. Tudno’s, Sunday 24 June 2018

editor : June 26, 2018 4:07 pm : Latest, TudnosPrevious

Archdeacon Mary led an open air service to celebrate the Great Get Together. Llandudno Town Council was represented by the Mayor and Mayoress of Llandudno, Cllr David and Mrs Amanda Hawkins and the congregation included parishioners, locals and visitors from outside the parish. During the service, as an example of “we’re better together”, people were invited to make a paper cup out of a piece of paper – and found that it was certainly easier when helping each other! The service was followed by a picnic in the churchyard.

St. Tudno’s Day, Tuesday 5 June 2018

editor : June 12, 2018 4:57 pm : Latest, TudnosPrevious

The annual St. Tudno’s Day Pilgrimage began with prayers and reflection at Holy Trinity. The Pilgrims then climbed the Great Orme, with stops for further prayers and reflections. St. Tudno’s Well was visited by kind permission of the landowners and the Pilgrims were sprinkled with water from the Well. At the St. Tudno’s Day Eucharist in the church, the Town Council was represented by the Deputy Mayor of Llandudno and our new clergy, Andrew and Mary, were welcomed to St. Tudno’s. After the service, many of the congregation enjoyed a picnic in the churchyard.
