Celebrating a new chapter

Tonight at 7pm there will be a very special service in St Mary’s Conwy, to which everyone is invited: the celebration of Communion with Bishop Mary Stallard and the preacher will be the newly appointed Bangor Diocese Director of Ministry, Canon David Thomas Morris. Fittingly, on this Ascension Day, when Christ called his disciples to tell his story, with the promised blessing of his Holy Spirit, we also celebrate another new beginning …

Rev Eryl Parry, is to expand her role to include helping churches across the area of the Bangor Synod begin new ways of expressing the Christian life of worship, love and service. Tonight, in a joyful service, she will be commissioned for that role. Please do come along!

7pm Thursday 26th May
