Mothering Sunday 3 April, 2011
The Parish of Valley with Bryngwran and Caergeiliog
The    theme    today    was    the    ten    different ways   God   cares   and   mothers   us   as   His children   and   they   are   also   examples   of what   we   are   asked   to   do   for   each   other and   for   others.   These   ways   are   LOVE, SACRIFICE,     FORGIVENESS,     HEART (knowing   God's   love   to   care   for   people), FOOD        (provision),        PROTECTION, GUIDANCE,        SHELTER,        SADNESS (being    there    for    people)    and    JOY.    We ended   the   service   with   the   theme   from Colossians   of   clothing   ourselves   in   love, which   binds   everything   together   in   perfect harmony.
Good Friday 22 April, 2011
See   from   his   head,   his   hands,   his   feet, sorrow   and   love   flow   mingling   down: did   e'er   such   love   and   sorrow   meet,   or thorns    compose    so    rich    a    crown? Were   the   whole   realm   of   nature   mine. that   were   an   off'ring   far   too   small;   love so   amazing,   so   divine,   demands   my soul, my life, my all.
Easter Day 24 April, 2011
A   class   of   students   were   asked   to identify   the   Seven   Wonders   of   the World.    The    list    included    Egypt's Great    Pyramids,    the    Taj    Mahal, the   Grand   Canyon,   the   Great   Wall of   China,   St.   Peter's   Basilica....... But   one   of   the   students   came   up with this list: The Seven Wonders of the World are: 1. To see 2. To hear 3. To touch 4. To taste 5. To feel 6. To laugh 7. To love. At this Easter time a gentle reminder that the most precious things in life cannot be built or bought.    Alleluia! Christ is risen. He is risen indeed. Alleluia!

The   church   itself   was   decorated   with   beautiful   flower   and   vegetable   arrangements   and   a   lovely   display   of   harvest crafts by the Sunday School.

Christmas Family Service 18 December, 2011
The   theme   of   the   service   was   'What   is   Christmas   about?'   We   had   props   to   show   all   the   things   that   are   important to   us   like   Christmas   trees,   Father   Christmas,   cards,   presents,   Christmas   dinner,   being   with   family   and   friends, etc.   and   then   we   balanced   it   out   with   remembering   that   Christmas   is   also   about   those   who   are   hungry   and   cold, supporting fair trade and charities and thinking of people less fortunate than ourselves - a challenge for us all!
