Giving to The Village: Some wonderful things happen through The Village, and people giving financially is an important way to support both our church activities and the initiatives we run to serve our communities. An offering is made available during our Sunday worship but you are also welcome to give by automatic payment or envelope which means you can claim a tax credit of 33% for your donation. Please contact Keren Ritchie or Donella Duff for more information.

On Thursday 8th September we are celebrating 25 years of our Community Centre.

It is in the Common at the Village Bryndwr, from 5pm until about 6.30-7pm and we hope for a good turn out from the Village.

We are inviting those individuals and organizations who have supported us. We will tell some of the story, be entertained by Burnside Primary school and then finish the evening with a Feast. Hope you can come!

Clothing Shop Volunteers needed: If you are able to offer help (perhaps one Saturday a month), sorting and selling clothing and misc items from our Bryndwr shop, please contact Janice or the Bryndwr office. We are very low on helpers and would really appreciate assistance with this. If you can’t help yourself but know of a friend who might enjoy a few hours a month as a volunteer we would love to hear from them.

Thursday Hour: Everyone is welcome to come along for a social hour at the Village Bryndwr 5-6pm Thursday 4th August. Byo drinks, nibbles are provided.
