Holy Trinity, Corris - News
The children of Ysgol Dyffryn Dulas were welcomed by the Reverend Jen Evans to their annual Harvest Celebration. They all took part in a portrayal of life in a fair trade community, acting and singing with great gusto and commitment .They took the theme of bananas complete with suitable fruit and giant pop up bananas. They also showed how many people, using the analogy of producing bread, would not help with planting , growing and making the bread but expected to share in the finished loaf. The Reverend Jen then spoke briefly to every one, with the children's
help about our five a day. Not our food in this case but rather naming five things we could all be grateful for. The children raised the roof with their happy shouts of diolch and about 60 parents, relations and friends responded with plenty of applause for all their efforts and hard work.
Bilingual Christmas cards are now available for St Peter’s, Holy Trinity and St Tydycho with other Churches in the Ministry Area to follow shortly.
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
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
