Chapel at Bryndwr:  The chapel in our building at Bryndwr was intended to be a space for prayerful contemplation, where members would feel comfortable sitting quietly alone or with one another for introspection and prayer.  I’m wondering if the artists and craftspeople in our community would be interested in creating appropriate artwork that would enhance the sense that this is a sacred space.  Joy.

Congregational Meetings:-

Sunday April 14th and Thursday April 18th

The meetings to elect the four members of the congregation for appointment to the Ministry Settlement Board (MSB) and also to confirm the terms of call for the Papanui Mission Lead (and to call a minister to this role) are to be held April 14th (after the 10am Service, at the Village Bryndwr) and April 18th after the Thursday Worship Service at the Village Papanui (11.30am Service begins).
