Bryndwr Community Garden AGM:  The Bryndwr Community Garden is having its 2021 Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 14 April, 7pm at The Village Bryndwr Church.  We are meeting in the Annexe (where we usually meet), which is most easily accessed by the side door.  It would be great if you could come along and please feel free to invite anyone to the AGM who you think might be interested in being part of the community garden. If you wish to be part of the committee, please come along or let us know if you wish to be nominated.  Drinks and snacks will be provided. The agenda, executive report, position description and previous minutes will be available as paper copies on the day of the meeting.

Rev. Robert Simpson introduces his new book – “The Ripple Effect” – an exciting look at the Twenty-Third Psalm!  This is free!

The simple power of King David’s psalms never fails to reaffirm the presence of the guiding hand of God, but it has also many personal truths that have been the author’s experiences including being resident in Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village.  Go on, take one or two of The Ripple Effect!  It may be the very thing that you are after!  Contact Rev. Robert for information on how to obtain a copy.
