Spring time – I just love it!  ​

All things considered, it is my favourite season.  The snow drops, crocuses and daffodils push their determined little heads above the winter-ravaged earth.  The day-time lengthens, banishing the darkness increasingly further into the night.  And the Christian church throughout the world celebrates Easter and the death and resurrection of Jesus, the Saviour of the world. 

All this, of course, speaks to us of new life, a fresh start, a new beginning.  Which is fitting, because this is exactly where Coedpenmaen Community Church (www.cccponty.wales) finds itself.  On 1st April a re-launch will usher in something of a renaissance for our little church.  With the name change, new logo and mission statement and revised Sunday meeting times, there is a determination to be more ‘community orientated’ as we endeavour to serve Trallwn and the surrounding areas. 

My sincere thanks to those of you who took the time and effort to respond to our recent community survey.  Your responses are helping us to understand your needs and expectations and we will use them to develop a strategy for the future.  All in all, we are here for you - so please look-out for our new initiatives as they are introduced throughout the coming months. 

Our re-launch begins with a community fun day on Saturday 2nd April (see poster inside which, we hope, you will display in your window showing your support) between 1pm and 4pm.  This will be followed by a ‘formal’ dedication, tea and an evening celebration with special guest speaker Revd. John Welsby from Pembrokeshire.  This occasion is completely free and various gifts and goodies will be given out.  We look forward to seeing you.  Perhaps we can enjoy a fresh start, a new beginning, together.

Revd. Doug Atherton, Pastor
