We had some wonderful services in St Thomas’s Church over Christmas. On Sunday 21st December two special services were held. In the morning it was the Nativity led by Junior Church. We had lots of helpers to play the roles of Joseph, Mary, Shepherds, Wise Men and the Angel. Thanks go to Andy Smith and Pat Squire for arranging the service.

In the evening it was the traditional service of lessons and carols by Candlelight. This is a beautiful service and a great opportunity to hear the Christmas message. Thanks go to all the readers and contributors and of course to Dafydd Meares for arranging all the candles and making sure the Church didn’t burn down!!

Afterwards there was a Candlelit Supper in the Church Hall in support of Christian Aid. This get-together is the perfect finish to a great day. Special thanks go to Mrs Lucy Lake for arranging this Candlelit Supper as it will be her last one in charge as she is taking well deserved retirement from catering!

Christmas Day worship was a simple, short service led by our Minister, Rev Gareth Roberts and was the perfect way to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It’s always a lovely service and an opportunity to see friends of St Thomas’s who we don’t normally see throughout the year as they return home to see family.
