Tedi Su and Sandy Lou get together with Luke to plan Sunday’s fun All Age Service. It will be Sandy Lou’s first visit and she was really excited to discover they will not only get to listen to stories but they will be drawing/colouring their prayers and playing musical instruments. Luke is looking forward to meeting everyone too! How will Rev Suz manage these three?
Come along to find out for yourself at this Sunday’s service – 3.00pm at St John’s Church, Aberkenfig.
Tedi Su had fun at the ADUC Shrove Tuesday Pancakes with quiz night. Although she wasn’t on the winning team there were lots of laughs and plenty to eat. Spotting the Archdeacon (who was a member of the victorious team), she badly attempted a photo-bomb here.
She maintains that it had been pretty much neck and neck until that huge sweet pancake…!
Tedi Su and Sandy Lou joined Rev Suz and Luke for a very special occasion today as they welcomed little Carwyn into God’s family. The two teddies hadn’t met Luke before and like Carwyn were mesmerised by him.
It was yet another new experience for Tedi Su today as she went to help Rev Suz talk about pilgrimage in Assembly. Rev Suz had taken along a scallop shell and backpack – the modern version of the pilgrim’s bag and there was much talk about what might be needed for the journey with the children offering some really helpful ideas. It was so much fun that Tedi Su can’t wait to go back!
Tedi Su had great fun this afternoon at our first All-Age service in St John’s. From building the Temple where Simeon and Anna finally met the Saviour – just as God had promised them – to joining in with the story; making cards of blessing and playing musical instruments whilst marching with candles… She’s one tired ted now!
It is becoming well known that diversity is a good thing and so the Teds came along to the Messy Church preparation meeting to increase the diversity of the already very diverse group. For over five years we have been running monthly Messy Church services and each one starts with the team gathering together two to three weeks before to plan what needs to be done before going off and making it happen.
The table full of food? Well we used to meet in the church but then decided it was better to meet in each others homes and then decided it would be good to have refreshments and then – lets just say each prep meeting has a party atmosphere. Sometimes there is wine too!
Want to come and observe a prep meeting or even come and join the team? Just drop us an email mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
This afternoon the Teds met the other boys and girls and Teds from across the Bridgend Deanery.
We normally meet once a month, as a chapter, to touch base with each other and to make sure that all is well in other parts of the Deanery. The Deanery stretches from Llanharan across to Laleston and then up the valleys to Glyncorwg and the Garw and Ogmore valleys.
We have three Teds in the Deanery as can be seen in the picture. Hopefully more will appear as times goes on and there will be many many more blogs of their exploits.
