Welcom Rev'd Naomi

Bro Cyfeiliog a Mawddwy Ministry Area were pleased to welcome the Reverend Naomi as NSM Curate. Following a special United Eucharist at St Peter's Church friends joined together for a very enjoyable lunch at Plas Dolguog Hotel.
At the service the Rev Naomi announced that the Bishop of Bangor, The Right Reverend Andy John, asked the Rev Kathleen to assume the position of Canon Tertius of the Cathedral. A huge honour which has accepted.

Aber Opera

Once again we were entertained by some wonderful singing at St Peter's last Thursday evening from Aber Opera. They sang pieces from well known operas - Marriage of Figaro, Rigoletto, Carmen, La Boheme to name but a few. This year they were joined by Mr Harry Jepson on the clarinet who played two pieces - Una Voce Poco Fa and Largo Al Factotum. The Musical Director was Mr Alistair Auld and the Repetituer was Mr Derek Fallding.

A very enjoyable evening and we look forward to next time.


Childrens Easter Service 2014

Ysgol Gynnradd Easter Service - Parents and parishioners thoroughly enjoyed this event at St Peter's on Thursday the 10th April. The children gave the Easter story a modern twist telling it as if it were a modern day news report with the "news from the studio" and "roving reporters" following the events as they unfolded from the Upper Room to the empty tomb on Easter morning.
The true meaning of Easter - Well Done!!

We hope to have some pictures shortly.
