Christmas Wrapped Up

In the last week about 130 year 2 schoolchildren from 4 local schools came through our doors to enjoy our Nativity presentation and activities.  Wayne would like to express his heartfelt thanks to all who helped and all who prayed and who continue to pray, whether new or veterans of this delightful interaction with little ones of Ponty.  We received much positive feedback from the schools and continue to build relationships with them.

There is one final presentation at Craig y Parc School in Pentyrch on Wed 13 Dec. 


The work amongst the youth of Pontypridd is on hold currently: neither the Sunday nor the Friday night outreach is happening during December, but may return in the New Year.  Please pray for those who have been involved as leaders and helpers, that this may be a time of recharging, re-envisioning,and replenishing of resources.  May God commission new people as needed to join this work.  Finally, please pray for the young people who have been reached through the faithful witness of this last year or so, that God will keep them and bring to completeness the work that He has started in them.

Next Sunday 17 Dec, the morning service will include Sunday School Christmas items.  Andy Sparkes will be preaching the third of our Advent series.
