PARISH NEWS * NEWYDDION Y PLWYF

Parochial Church Council/Cyngor Eglwysig y Plwyf The next meeting of the Parochial Church Council will be in the parish office on Thursday 24 January at 7pm.

Parish Coffee Morning/Bore Coffi’r Plwyf The next coffee morning will be on Saturday 26 January from 10.30am-12.30pm. 

Funeral The funeral of Mrs Margaret Fisher, a faithful member of Christ Church, will take place in church on Wednesday 23 January at 12.30pm.

Stepping Down My globe-trotting days are over. I have resigned from the Anglican Oriental Orthodox International Commission because of my wonky heart and family pressures. However, I’m continuing my connection with the Armenian community in Wales, and have been asked to open the new Armenian art gallery and cafe in Cardiff later this year. 

             Plant Dewi Coffee Morning Once again Christ Church is responsible for the £1 parcel stall 

             at the annual coffee morning in support of our diocesan children’s charity. Items in the 

             parcels (which might include unwanted Christmas presents) should be worth at least £1.

             Please could you give the parcels to Mrs Doreen Jones, who is in charge of the stall.

             New Appointment The Archdeacon has asked me to announce that the new Priest-in- 

             Charge of St Peter’s Carmarthen and Area Dean is to be the Reverend Dr Matthew Hill, at 

             present Priest-in-Charge of Llanfihangel Ystrad (Felinfach) and Cilcennin with Trefilan and

             Nantcwnlle, and formerly Chaplain of the University of Wales, Lampeter.
