Parish Magazine Subscriptions

Yearly subscriptions are now overdue for the monthly magazine. Please pay your distributor.

Grateful thanks, once again this year, to Capt Lambert and the staff of the Tabernacle for producing the magazine every month.

New Dean at Bangor Cathedral

A bus has been arranged for Saturday 30th January for the service of Collation, Institution and Installation of the Reverend Kathy Jones as Dean of Bangor Cathedral. As she is a native of Corris it would be good if we could join together as a Ministry Area to attend this service and welcome her to our Diocese.

The bus will leave Machynlleth at 11am for the service at 2pm and return at 6.30pm. The price will be £10. Please give your names and money to your Church Warden as soon as possible.

Bangor Cathedral Choir

On Sunday December 6th St. Tydecho Church was full for a concert of special music ‘From Advent to Christmas’ with Bangor Cathedral Choir under the leadership of their director of music Paul Booth with Martin Brown Cathedral organist accompanying. We were enthralled by the beautiful sound of the choir as they took us from Advent to Christmas with music from the early medieval period to the present day based on three themes – Preparing the Way, The Annunciation, and At the Stable.

In addition to the choir there were readings of works by T Llew Jones, Geraint Lovegreen, John Betjeman and Clare Bevan by church members, Anna Jones, Kate Ryder, Brian Hopewell and Jen Evans, and wonderful recitals on the organ by Martin Brown.

The audience joined in to sing three Advent hymns. This indeed was an evening to remember as we were spiritually prepared for Christmas here in Bro Cyfeiliog a Mawddwy through the magical sound of our cathedral choir.
Following the concert we all enjoyed mulled wine and refreshments prepared by church members in the Church Room. The Rev Roland, wardens and members of St.Tydecho would like to warmly thank everyone who supported the evening.

A total of over £1,500 was raised for church funds.
