Over the coming weeks this letter is going out to the community that I love! The good people of Aberyschan, Talywain and Garndiffaith. Please Read and share.
It has been a year since my wife, four kids and I moved into the area and we have been amazed by the welcome. We are truly blessed to live in such a loving community.
Within 12 months your local church (Noddfa) has gone from just a handful of devoted people meeting on a Sunday morning, to over thirty regular attendees of all ages and backgrounds.
We have started a Sunday school during the service to keep the children/grandchildren busy so all the parents (and Grandparents) can have a break and enjoy their time with us, the kids love it to!
Our monthly family friendly evening services “Look Up” regularly see fifty or so attend.
The Monday Club (6-7pm) is blossoming with many primary school aged children joining us for stories, games and refreshments.
Our Mothers and Toddlers group (Tuesday 10am) has had to expand, so we are now running a “Messy” sensory play session every Thursday at 1pm.
Noddfa is also a collection point for the local food bank and “Torfaen Aid for Refugees”.
I am giving you the above information to illustrate that as a church we are here to serve the community (and that means you!)
Whether you believe in God, or have other views, I remain here for you as your local Pastor and my door is always open. If you have any questions about your life and its meaning, if you are undergoing various trials, or if you simply fancy a chat please give me a call, or come and see us at one of our meetings. You and your family are more than welcome.
I hope we can meet in person at some point in the future. My details are below.
Pastor John-Edward Funnell
