It’s 2020 and the year of Pilgrimage in Llandaff Diocese in the Church in Wales. As such in the Deanery of Bridgend we have decided to let you see behind the scenes, so to speak, and come for a year long pilgrimage walk with us.
Category:Parish of Coity, Nolton and Brackla with Coychurch
Big celebrations in Coity for the licensing of Rev Chris as an associate priest in the parish of Coity, Nolton & Brackla with Coychurch. Archdeacon Mike was there on behalf of bishop June to bring Rev Chris formally into the team.
A few months ago we had no idea who Rev Chris was but he felt led to come and offer himself to share the load in this area and here he is!
You never know what God is truly up to and what that blessing or miracle that next phone call or email may bring. Don’t stop believing.
“I cannot find my work on my laptop and the internet has stopped working!” was the message I got from L one of the church wardens of a neighbouring parish. As I used to have a proper job in the I.T. Industry (and she knew it) I offered to pop around and see what was what.
Turns out the wireless driver had failed on the one laptop and so needed reinstalling and the lost file was not really lost if you looked at ‘recent items’ in file explorer, it was just saved in an obscure place.
While I was there I also solved a ‘logon service’ problem (just needed a restart to get the service going again) and downloaded an adware cleaner to speed up another laptop that was running slow.
We then had a chat about life the universe and training for the church and had a cup of coffee and a pray for a shoulder problem.
Then I said “Right time for a photo with the Teds as they are following me everywhere I go.” which was met with a scream as apparently you cannot have your photo taken unless you have washed your hair! Hence the boys got a photo with K, L’s dutiful daughter. Hmmmmmm.
Another busy day, and Penny was at St Crallo’s, Coychurch, rehearsing with the REInspired team for their session on Noah. An ark, lots of felt and much laughter! Children’s ministry is truly good fun and Penny reflected that if the team is having fun together, then the session itself will reflect that our story is indeed a joyful one.
