News from Corris

Holy Trinity Corris.

Martin Riley has now, sadly taken his last service at Holy Trinity. On behalf of the congregation, we would like to extend our grateful thanks to martin, for all the years of service he has given to us, which enabled us to have a service most weeks of the year, including Lenten and Crib services.

We will be arranging a service of Thanksgiving and farewell for Martin and Beryl as soon as it can be arranged.

We wish Martin and Beryl all the best for the future in their new home. We will miss Beryl, our longstanding treasurer at our Mother’s Union meetings, but will look forward to meeting up with her at future events in the Diocese, many thanks Beryl.

Matchstick Model of St. Peter's Church

A model of St Peter’s Church made from matchsticks was presented to the Church by Mr James Miller of Scotland.

This is the 81st model he has made over the past 20 years – three being in this area, one in Germany with the rest in Churches throughout Scotland.

On each model you will find his trademark of a tiny white dove. If you happen to visit any churches in Scotland look out for a model of that church with a tiny white dove and you’ll know who the builder is.

We are very grateful to Mr Miller for his gift.

Letter from Rev'd. Kathleen

Dear Friends

I have been at a crossroads in my life for some months now and have struggled as to which road to take, but after a great deal of prayer and conversations with Archdeacon Andrew and the Bishop I have made my decision. I have written to the Bishop to tell him of my intention to retire at the end of January 2018 and he has accepted my decision. It has been my privilege to minister among you all and to work alongside you during some challenging times and a great many happy times and we still have another four months in which to keep making a difference in the Ministry Area. Thank you for your love and support.

With every blessing to you and yours

Kathleen


 

Corris Open Day - Update

We had a wonderful open day which was blessed with lovely weather.

After a lot of hard work by all involved giving the church a much needed ‘makeover' it was lovely to share the day by opening the church to old and new visitors.

It was also lovely that some of the children recognised Beth & Joanne from going into Corris school where we do ‘Open the Book’ and act out stories from the Bible. This is led by Rev Roland and we are joined by the rest of the team Rachel, Jo & Caroline.

We had stalls, raffles, competitions, outside games and served refreshments which resulted in takings/donations of over £200.

We would like to say a big thank you to all who visited and supported us. With special thanks to Mark from the Carpet Centre in Machynlleth who very generously donated a large piece of carpet
that fitted the main area at the back of the church. It has made such a difference to our makeover. Also Adam & Andy in the local cafe/shop for a raffle donation and directing people our way on the day.

We look forward to hosting a Ministry Area United Service at the end of October.
