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.
St Denis Church, Llanishen, is now decorated for Remembrance weekend.
Do pop in and have a look even if you cannot come to the service there on Sunday morning at 9.30am.
Many thanks to those who have knitted poppies, lent flags, and who will contribute readings and music in the service.
There will also be Acts of Remembrance at 10.50am on Sunday in Trelleck Grange and Llansoy churches and our church bells will join in with the national ringing at 12.30pm on Sunday.
Thank you to all who supported the Harvest Supper and Auction in the Carpenter’s Arms on Sunday evening, especially to
our magnificent auctioneer, Gary Jones,
and his glamorous assistant, Jocelyn Hickling,
and to Paul and Jacqui for their hospitality.
Between you all, you raised a record £952 as well as having a highly entertaining evening.
Next year’s date is already booked: 22 September 2019
Harvest Thanksgiving Service is at 11am in St Denis Church.
Supper and Auction 7pm in the Carpenter’s Arms.
