Carols by Candlelight Preparation 2016

editor : December 20, 2016 6:19 pm : FriendsInAction, Latest

The Friends began preparation on Saturday 17 December, fitting some of the outdoor benches in the church to provide extra seating, decorating the Christmas trees and the church and setting out the candles. The friends returned the next morning, before the services, to put out lights by the paths. Friends were also involved in the three services and cleared away afterwards. There are some photographs of the services on this page.

Autumn Working Party at St. Tudno’s Church, 2016

editor : October 17, 2016 5:24 pm : FriendsInAction

The Friends of St. Tudno’s autumn working party was held on Saturday 15 October. The day started with heavy rain but this didn’t stop the church being cleaned or the benches put away.  As the sun came out it was possible to start other jobs in the churchyard such as clearing rubbish, raking and removing cut grass – and enjoying a hot drink and a cake!

On 30 June the Friends had an outing to Mary Jones World, Bala, and Pennant Melangell. At Mary Jones World we learnt about Mary’s 26 mile walk to by a Bible and how that inspired the formation of the Bible Society. After lunch we visited Shepherd’s Stream Retreat and St. Melangell’s Church, where there was a short service around St. Melangell’s Shrine, as shown in the photograph.
