Harvest Thanks / Diolchiadau Diolchgarwch Many thanks to all those who decorated the church so beautifully for our Harvest Festivals and to those who contributed flowers and harvest gifts. My apologies for having missed last Sunday’s services – I was preaching at the Armenian Church in Manchester. The Reverend Delyth has shown me a wonderful recording of the children singing at the 9.15am service. Warmest congratulations to all involved. I have written to thank the Reverend Shirley Murphy, who was guest preacher at the evening service.
