Mothering Sunday 2019

A big thank you to those who made the posies and put the service together.

We had a quiz about mothers in the animal world, heard some stories about two mothers in the Bible and then thought about the way that Mary would have looked after Jesus as he was growing up.

We said prayers for our families and homes and for Mother Church, Mother Earth, and our motherland.

And, of course, we gave all the ladies a posy and took some away to give to others who weren’t with us in church.

Llansoy Christmas Coffee Morning

This year our coffee morning is raising money for the Monmouthshire group of Friends of Chernobyl Children, run entirely by local volunteers organised by Jane Hines from Llangwm. Ten children from the area of Belarus most affected by the after effects of the 1986 disaster will stay for a month with local families here in Monmouthshire. Appointments with dentists and opticians are arranged, as well as trips to the seaside etc. They return home with vitamins, new shoes, second hand clothes and lots of happy memories. Funds are needed to cover the cost of flights, visas, hiring a minibus – and even simple things like icecreams – treats that we all take for granted.

We do hope you can come and support our village event on
Saturday December 1st
10 – 12am
at Llansoy House

Hand-made gifts, cards, cakes, raffle etc

Easter Workshop

Thanks to all who came to our Easter workshop – we all enjoyed making crosses, cards and chocolate nests, singing some songs about Easter and telling the story.

Someone was so pleased with their ‘A’ they took it home but we did shout the full ALLELUIA!
