Working together is far better than ploughing that lonely furrow! After all, there is no ‘i’ in ‘team’. Christians are making Jesus known to the next generations of people who live in the Conwy Valley. Psalm 133 is all about Unity Undod, and the blessed fruit which it produces.

Psalm 133 – The Blessedness of Unity – A Song of Ascents

How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity!

It is like the precious oil on the head, running down upon the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down over the collar of his robes.

It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion.

For there the LORD ordained his blessing, life for evermore.

Conwy Fairtrade Coalition AGM – Tuesday 9th October (5.30pm)

The Annual General Meeting for the Conwy Fair Trade Coalition will give you an opportunity to meet Gareth Jones, the Leader of Conwy County Borough Council. You will be able to ask questions about the Council and Fairtrade.
The AGM will be held:-
Tuesday 9th October (5.30pm)
Kingdom Krafts
30 Madoc Street
LL30 2TL
Masnach Deg Fair Trade is about making trade fair, and this is achieved by making a difference to the lives of people who produce the food that we love to eat. Gwledd Conwy Feast will be a celebration of God’s harvest, and promises to be a wonderful Food Festival at the end of October.

Why does Fairtrade mean sustainable trade?

Fair Trade will build a sustainable future for all of us, and it is something that we can adopt for the Future Generations in Wales, so that we can improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of our Ministry Area. By increasing the standards of living for farmers and all the other people that work in food production, we can reduce the risks and vulnerabilities that they face. The Fairtrade Minimum Price provides a safety net for food producers, so that they are less vulnerable to price volatility in the global markets. It provides better cash flow, greater access to credit, and the ability to save money more easily. Food producers need to be able to put money aside for a rainy day, or even a scorching Summer! The unpredictable nature of our weather means that food producers never quite know what their harvest will yield, and they are in our prayers. Food security means economic growth for Wales and the rest of the UK. Better incomes mean more money to buy food, and more money to invest in food production, such as grazing for livestock, sustainable fishing, and growing new crops to make them more resilient to climate change, which effects the weather and the price of food.

On 6th June 2008, Wales became the first Fair Trade Nation in the World! We will make sure that we always use Fairtrade tea and coffee in all our churches. Many shops and all the major supermarkets stock Fairtrade goods now, and they tend to be cheaper than some of the other unethical brands.

Psalms 85:10-13 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven. Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase. Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.

If you come early, you can browse the stock of Christian books, cards and gifts. They have a great selection of Fairtrade goods, which make ideal Christmas presents! All are welcome to attend the meeting, so come along!

He did it…

21km run on the Llŷn Peninsula for Llamau because nobody in Wales should be vulnerable and homeless.

David Abersoch Half-Marathon

Reverend David Parry completed the Abersoch Half-Marathon in just over 2.5 hours on Saturday 22nd September to raise money for the Llamau charity, which supports homeless young people in Wales. There were quite a few athletes in the event, so he started the run a bit quicker than normal, so as not to hold up the car at the back of the runners! He found it hard-going in the last half, but made it to the Finish Line. We are all so proud of him. Well done!

Many thanks for all the donations. There is still time to help Llamau, by clicking on https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/davidparryconwy.
