Holy Week and Easter in Bro Celynnin

Sadly, due to illness, we have had to cancel the service of Celtic Praise at St Benedict’s Gyffin on Sunday night (10th April). There will be one service in the Ministry Area on Palm Sunday: 11am Communion in St. Mary’s Conwy.

However, we are really pleased to offer a full programme for Holy Week and Easter, including prayers on zoom, a range of services in our church buildings, a pilgrimage walk on Good Friday and sunrise Communion at Llangelynnin on Easter morning.

We hope very much that you will join us as we journey together – to the Cross and beyond in celebration on Easter Sunday!
