Parish magazine Easter 2021

Spring really is in the air, the clocks have changed and we’re looking forward to enjoying the better weather. How different it all is from one year ago – then everything was closing down – now everything is (gradually) opening up! Yippee! This issue of the magazine is packed with fresh and lively content too.…

Parish magazine March 2021

The sun has been shining, the daffodils are starting to pop up and there’s a quiet feeling of things gradually getting better. Lent is a time of prayer, contemplation and thoughtfulness as we prepare for the coming of Easter. This issue of the magazine picks up on that air of positivity. Fr Philip, Fr Geoff and…

Parish magazine February 2021

Here we are at the start of a New Year, and although it’s very different from the norm, there’s a definite feeling of hope and positive things to come.     I’ve been overwhelmed with contributions this month – a big thank you to everyone. If your article hasn’t appeared this month, rest assured it is safely stored…

Walking on Merthyr Mawr Warren

This can be a great enjoyment if you can walk a few miles; there is so much to see. There are many access points. Parking is possible at Candleston Castle and, for a few cars, on the track from Tythegston to Candleston Farm. Walking from Porthcawl entails going to Newton and one way is to…

Parish magazine December 2020

Have you ever seen so many Christmas lights and decorations up this early in December? Many of us have decided to add some festive cheer to the end of this diabolical year and clambered into attics and cupboards to dust off our glitz and glitter. It certainly brings a smile to my face to see…

Parish magazine November 2020

Here we are in November, almost at the end of the year – and I’m sure we’ll be pleased to see an end to this one! We’ve been through another lockdown  – thankfully it’s almost over for us (hopefully), whilst for others it’s just about to start. It certainly is a topsy-turvy world, isn’t it!…

Parish magazine October 2020

Here we are at Harvest Festival – a time of celebration, but more muted this year as we find ourselves in a second lockdown locally! This time, it doesn’t feel quite so unsettling, maybe because we’ve been there before and also as the restrictions are a little less severe. At least we’ll still be able to…

Parish magazine September 2020

September is a time of new beginnings. In many respects, this year is no different and yet, oh so different! At last our churches are open again for worship “almost as usual”! And we’re all beginning to settle a little and adapt to this new world. The summer hasn’t been as busy as usual, although…

Parish magazine Summer 2020

Who’d have thought that we’d have a third issue completed during lockdown! We thrive on personal contact, so it’s a big challenge to share our thoughts when that contact is so drastically curtailed. And yet our lovely band of contributors continues to write and we, once again, have a Parish magazine full of news and…

Parish magazine June 2020

Here we are with a second issue of this magazine completed during lockdown! I know a few of our usual contributors met my reminder email with a sigh, wondering what they would write…. and I have to admit that I researched a few extra articles, just in case…. But I needn’t have worried, as you’ll…
