Llangelynnin Old Church (2019)

April

It was a wet Thursday on 9th April, and some members of the North Wales Pilgrims’ Way Group visited our ancient Church. They trekked up the hill from Rowen, and were delighted to hear the toll of the bell, as they trudged their way up in wet weather gear! Once they were safely inside St. Celynnin’s Church, they held prayers, and enjoyed the refreshments that were provided by the people from the Bro Gwydir Ministry Area. They then carried on walking to Abergwyngregyn, and some of them carried on to Bardsey Island Ynys Enlli

Early in the morning on Sunday 21st April, we gathered in Llangelynnin Old Church for the Dawn Communion Easter Sunday Service. With the beauty of sunrise, we celebrated the risen Christ, and bright light shone through the East window.

September

The Church welcomed visitors on 7th September during the annual Open Doors Drysau Agored. There was an Exhibition on ‘Llangelynnin Old and New’, as well as a guided tour of the Church.

October

We had our last Celtic Prayer and Praise Service on the eighteenth Sunday after Trinity, in the afternoon of Sunday 20th October. It was a Communion Service and our focus was on Chapel, a place where we can pray with others. Chapel is one of the Seven Sacred Spaces Saith Gofod Sanctaidd of Christian community life, the values of which come from monastic communities.

November

Poppies were placed on the font for Remembrance Sunday 10th November, to honour the millions of people who lost their lives, or were wounded in battle, so that we can enjoy freedom today.
