Caerhun is hosting an Easter Coffee Morning at Tal-y-Bont Memorial Hall on Saturday 23rd March (10am – 12pm).
The funds will go to the Toilet Twinning Charity, to bring hope to families who live in the poorest parts of the world. Donations will be used to provide clean water, basic sanitation and hygiene education.
We are so fortunate to live in the beautiful Conwy valley. We can walk in the Carneddau and see an abundance of fresh water lakes that provide safe drinking water to us. They are free from contamination and we’ve got clean water piped into our homes. Modern sanitation is something that we often take for granted and we even have toilets inside our homes these days!
The fundraiser will have an Easter theme. There will be lots for sale, including cakes, jam, honey, books, plants and seeds. There will also be a tombola and a raffle, as well as gifts for Easter. Our giving will have a direct bearing on the health and safety of people that do not have our advantages.
So come along and help to flush away poverty!
Explore the rich meaning and symbolism of Communion by joining the Lent Group on Monday evenings at St. Mary’s Church Hall, in Conwy.
It starts on Monday 11th March (7pm – 8.30pm).
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. There’s a Communion for the whole of the Bro Celynnin Ministry Area on Wednesday 6th March (11am) at St. Mary’s Church, in Conwy. All are welcome, including people who live outside our Ministry Area.
Transforming Lives for Good (TLG) is an Early Intervention Programme to safeguard children who are at risk of being excluded from school.
There was an introductory meeting at St. John’s Church, in Conwy, on Monday 18th February. More information is available on the website tlg.org.uk.
Aberconwy School has said that it will provide some TLG volunteers. No school wants to expel a child. Education is a privilege for all children and young people who live in this part of the World. That’s why it’s so important for us to take early intervention to prevent a child from being excluded.
What is the role of a TLG volunteer?
- to help one child for one hour per week for a school year
- to provide loving support to that child
- to befriend that child and improve their emotional wellbeing
- to mentor that child and provide guidance
- to be a role model to that child and inspire them
- to pray for that child and give them hope and confidence
- to build trust and let the child know that they are safe
- to serve your local school and be a blessing
There are a number of reasons why children show negative behaviour and can’t concentrate in school. It could be due to bereavement, bullying, family breakdown, or anxiety. They may have special needs, or they could be in the care system. They could be living in poverty and experiencing hunger, especially in the holidays when they don’t have a lifeline. Whatever the reason, these vulnerable children have a tough start in life, and it’s been proven that early intervention can be a success, giving young people the ability to reach their true potential.
The programme has been developed by teachers and psychologists. The coordinator is Gareth Williams, who is currently one of the Children and Family Workers at St. John’s Church. Please contact Gareth to discuss training as a TLG volunteer. You can make a difference to the life of a young person.
We hope that you will be able to give at least 95% of your time in a school year. You can agree the days and times with the coordinator and the local school. Parental consent has been given for this to take place.
A training event is being held on Wednesday 27th March, in Prestatyn. If you are interested in attending, please contact the coordinator, Gareth Williams:-

It’s a fact that 95% of children and young people don’t think that going to Church is cool, so Scripture Union is addressing this by running the 95 Campaign.
They are having an Evening Reception to celebrate the Ministry at St. David’s Methodist Church, Craig-y-Don, Mostyn Avenue, Llandudno, LL30 1YY on Monday 18th February (7pm-9pm). They’ll let you know what’s being done to make Jesus known to children and young people in North Wales. There will be opportunities to listen to stories, respond in prayer, hear future plans and eat together.
Scripture Union Wales Cymru would be thrilled if you could join them for this Event. Drinks and a light buffet will also be served. For catering purposes, please let them know whether you are able to attend by emailing Rachel Settatree on CelebrationEvent@scriptureunion.org.uk or Tel. (01766) 239347.

Our Visitor Welcome Team greeted over 16,000 visitors and local people last year. The morning will be practical in nature, giving everyone all they need to take part in the valuable work of meeting and greeting visitors in this great place of worship and heritage.

If you would like to join the Team for the 2019 season, please get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org, or via the Contact form.
