Cefn is a small chapel four miles from Welshpool on the road to Shrewsbury. The normal congregation is quite small, but there are a large number of friends of Cefn who are willing and able to join us when we hold special services. These include members of the All Saints Church Buttington, other local residents and visitors from Welshpool, Garthmyl, Forden, Newtown and more. At Christmas we enjoy having a group of young people from the nearby Trewern School, who come to join us and sing for us.
We are happy to experiment by meeting at other times than our usual slot of 6.30pm on Sundays. In our summer (June to August) we worship at 7.00 pm on Wednesdays. Everybody who reads this is very welcome and for further variations please see the ‘Border Gossip’ or our notice board outside.
We now have a Bible study in the home of one of our members on the third Thursday evening of each month, currently looking at some of the ‘Hard sayings of Jesus’. For further details ring 01938 552349.
The majority of the development scheme has now been carried out. We returned ‘home’ after seven months of meeting in the Community Centre. We are most grateful to Mrs Anne Jerman for all her help in making us welcome there during this period.
We reopened for our harvest on Fri Oct the 2nd with a lively service led by Mrs Eleri Williams from Carno. This was followed by supper and an auction of produce attended by over 40 people sitting on borrowed chairs. Outside the tarmac for the disabled access was being laid at the same time!
We are now planning the purchase of carpet, chairs and tables and hope before long to start coffee mornings. Any visitors who would like to see the premises are welcome to do so by appointment please ring WP 552349.
