Due to the increase in Covid cases in Wales, we have decided to change the way that we meet to do church. From the 20th December onwards (until further notice) all services will either be on Zoom, or outside in the garden. The new times are:
9.30 yb Oedfa Gymraeg
10.30 am English language service
You can watch a short message about this here, including some important Covid-safe details:
Now, go for a walk round the village and look in the windows of the shops. Can you spot a picture which matches one of the ones in your booklet? Write down a few words by each picture you find, to describe it. Can you find them all? End up by paying our garden in Salem a visit, and see if you can find our enormous Christmas tree!
Following the First Minister’s announcement today, we will not be able to meet for worship in Salem between the 24th October and the 9th November. So, after a trustees’ meeting today, we have decided:
1. The service this Wednesday 21st October at 6 pm will go ahead as usual. Families will be encouraged to take their craft boxes home to use during lockdown, as explained below.
2. On Sundays 25th October, 1st November and 8th November the services will be on Zoom – 9.30 am in Welsh and 4 pm in English. The link is the same as it was before (see link below and on the website home page) , and will be on Facebook. The services will be recorded and shown on YouTube afterwards
3. On Wednesdays 28 October and 4th November at 6 pm, we will have an All Age service over Zoom. The link is the same as for the Sunday service (below), and again this will be recorded. We will be leading craft activities on screen which we would encourage you to join in with at home. Keep an eye out for announcements on Facebook about this Wednesday night service (eg if you need to prepare some sticky-backed plastic … )
4. If all goes to plan, we hope to be back in Salem for the Wednesday night service on the 11th November at 6 pm.
I do hope that you are not feeling too crushed by all that is going on. We serve a great God, who loves and sustains us, blessing us daily with His loving care. I am confident that we will continue to see His goodness throughout the weeks and months to come. I pray for you all regularly, and please do get in touch with me if you need support. You know where I am!
