There were plenty of bargains to be found at the Rail Sale in the Church Hall today. A great selection of new and nearly new clothes and jewellery were on offer. Throughout the day there was a steady stream of customers many of whom stayed for refreshments too.
Our thanks to Blodwen and all the other helpers, to those who donated to the sale and to all who came along to buy. A pleasing sum of £587 was raised for church funds.
We turned Hope Church Hall into a cinema again, to watch the film Risen.
The film, which is only a few years old, is shown from the perspective of a Roman soldier who witnessed Jesus' death. This was a unique perspective that added a really a different element to the story, which was enjoyed by all.

Alleluia! Christ is Risen!
We had a variety of services at Hope and Emmanuel Churches on Easter Day to celebrate the Resurrection of our Saviour Jesus Christ.
In Hope.4.All service, we re-enacted the story of the women finding the tomb empty with the help of people in our congregation. Afterwards, the younger members made their way outside to complete a puzzle, which had two difficulties, to achieve an egg. They were able to colour and play within our creche area at the back of the church.
The service was finished with Holy Communion, or a blessing, from Rev. Adam and Assistant Bishop Jill.
A very Happy Easter to you all, and your friends and family from everyone at Hope and Emmanuel Churches.
Palm Sunday in Hope welcomed back everyone’s favourite Donkey, Max!
During the service, we were treated to a great story about how Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. There was even a great donkey cake and crafts before the service.
We hope if you attended any of our services, that you thoroughly enjoyed yourself. If you enjoyed the style of the Hope.4.All service, remember that we meet at 4pm every week in Hope Church.

All four congregations from Hope and Emmanuel Churches gathered together yesterday for 2019’s Celebration & Vision Night. We gave thanks for all that has been achieved in 2018 and committed ourselves to continuing to serve God in our churches and communities in the year to come.
The opportunity was taken to thank Barry and Angela Smith for their service to the Parish over the last 30 years and more. In particular Adam expressed everyone’s gratitude for their unstinting work in running the Church Hall as that responsibility now passes to others.

Rob and Pam Attree organised a wonderful quiz night for us on Friday. This photo was taken as Rob was explaining the rules at the start of proceedings. We do look serious, but we had a lot of fun.
As you can see, we had plenty of teams. There was a good mix of people from across our congregations and also the community.
We were grateful to Rob for a quiz that tested our knowledge of music, film and television, sport, product branding and much more.
Thanks also to Pam and Georgia for the smooth running of the quiz, also the ladies for half time refreshments and raffle.
At the end of the quiz, the best team won!
Hope.4.All has been our weekly all age service which has been going for exactly one year!
Although Hope had a monthly all age service, meaning accessible to all ages, Hope.4.All was created to give an option for weekly worship to everyone - old and young.
Have you been to Hope.4.All? We would love to hear what you think!
If you haven't attended and want to know what it is all about, see the poster below.
There was a very festive atmosphere at Pop In’s Christmas party. The Pop In team served soup as well as a wide selection of sandwiches, cakes and Christmas goodies. These included a gift for everyone from Gloria and Christmas crackers to pull.
Students from Castell Alun came along to provide the entertainment. They performed a selection of musical items on a variety of instruments which was much appreciated by the party-goers. Thank you to them and to everyone who contributed to this joyous occasion.
