Sunday School Lunch

This was my first sort of party. I went to meet the Sunday School at St Michael’s and we had lots of food. Vicar Martyn told all the parents how they can follow me on Teds 2020 Blog – so I now have followers. Vicar Martyn thinks their his followers but we all know it’s me Christopher they are following. We had great fun and it was a wonderful atmosphere. This really was a joyful story and how we are building God’s Kingdom. Carry on the great work.

Pancake – Quiz Night

This is Ceri one of our Church Wardens he was the quiz master. The pancakes look lush. He asked lots of searching questions such as the weight of the biggest pancake and the highest a pancake has been tossed. He also asked if Sunday’s were included in the 40 days of lent. I think that was one of the few questions vicar Martyn got right. I am not sure how much of a help he was to his team which were called ‘Butterless’ something to do with special pancakes for the vicar. Special needs!!!

Bingo

I went to bingo last week and this machine made lots of noise and then a ball popped out. Rhian the bingo caller then shouted out a number and some people shouted comments back such as 22 – quack quack, 11 – legs 11 and whistled. All very strange but everyone laughed and had fun.

Planning!

Planning All Age again

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.

Pancakes and quiz night fun

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…!

Fun at a baptism

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.

Tedi Su goes to school

Tedi Su goes to school

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!

All-Age fun

Building at the All-Age

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!

Teds join the Messy Church prep team

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:revian@lphparish.org.uk

Bridgend Deanery Parish of Llanilid with Pencoed & Heol-Y-Cyw

Teds at chapter

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.
