from Val

Dear Friends

I hope you and your family continue to stay safe and well. 
As we come to the beginning of Holy Week we are only too aware of the seriousness of the situation we are facing at this time.  We are unable to come together for our usual Palm Sunday and Holy Week services and Good Friday 3 Hours at the Cross.  This is the first time since I have been here that we have been unable to meet in this way.  We are facing dark days but Holy Week reminds us that life and death are intertwined and from darkness comes light. 
Thank you to all who have commented on the services we have sent out so far, we are still Church just a different kind of Church.  
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
With Many Blessings....Val

A service for Palm Sunday, and the readings for the day, are available to download on the NEWS page

Church closed until further notice

In line with Government Restrictions
St Dyfnog’s Church will remain closed until further notice
We know that our churches have always been places of sanctuary, peace and wellbeing. However, it is now clear that health and healing are best served by church buildings being closed. All church buildings should therefore be closed until further notice. This means churches should not be open for solitary prayer. Any exception from this action should only take place with the diocesan bishop’s express permission.

Bishop Gregory has offered a prayer to be said during this time of anxiety.

Dear Father, who created us, and redeemed us, and who has promised us your love, be with us in a time of danger and of worry.  May those who suffer, or who are ill, know the blessing of your grace, while we who are well be inspired by your Spirit to be wise and to be servants, working for the healing and wholeness of all, each in our own way.  

Keep us calm and cautious, strong and open to service, so that we take care of those around us, and also ourselves. We ask this in the name of Jesus.
