This week has been our Waste Watchers Holiday Club where we have welcomed between 30 and 40 lively children into the church each morning!

‘Praise be to the Lord, God our saviour, who daily bears our burdens.’
Summer has arrived!! Time for rest and relaxation in this amazing weather we have been blessed with recently. Maybe a holiday in this country or abroad. Catching up and spending time with family or friends. A chance to go on a Christian summer conference and be spiritually fed.
First of all a confession: When it’s my turn to write this newsletter article, I normally find it hard to come up with an idea and I spend ages trying to get started, but not this time though. And that’s entirely because I’ve shamelessly stolen a topic (and some of the words) from a brilliant talk that Angharad gave at youth group earlier in the year!
I was sitting gazing at my screen with not a clue what to write for this newsletter when the Postie arrived. A great distraction. But there, in the midst of the cards, bills and junk was an A5 envelope from New Wine! It made all the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
So what that I’m a Christian… I know it’s meant to make a difference to my life and to be sure, when worshiping on Sunday or at other times when I’m with fellow Christians, I do see how important Jesus is becoming in my life, but most of my life is not spent in a Christian setting and I struggle to see what difference being a Christian makes and sometimes, I even forget what I’m meant to be!
Last weekend I was away in the Cotswolds for our Colwyn Bay leaders training weekend. This summer we are taking away 12 of the young people from our older youth group for a week of action packed activities and learning about God in North Wales.
