News from Lunch Club What a wonderful day our Lunch Club members had on Wednesday 18 September. Thirty six of us boarded a coach to take us to Brecon.At 12pm we arrived at our restaurant and enjoyed a lovely meal.At 2pm we travelled on to Brecon Mountain Railway.We were so lucky to have such a beautiful day to enjoy the marvellous scenery.When we passed the lake the sun was glistening on the blue water with beautiful green fields and hills in the distance.We were able to get off at the end of the run to watch the little train turn to take us back to the coach.We also had another stop half way for 20 minutes to enjoy an ice-cream or cold drink.We arrived back in Killay at 5.45 after a lovely day out. We are pleased to have had some response to our request for help in the Lunch Club kitchen.We just need two more helpers and we could then start up our T e am A again.Each team only work every fifth week on a rota system.If you are interested please come along any Wednesday morning to have a chat and see what we do. We were all very sorry to hear that Christine has decided to retire as leader of the Lunch Club after all her hard work running it for 30 years.She will be greatly missed and we wish her well for the future.
On 13 November the Lunch Club will be holding a coffee morning at 10.30am.We hope to have some interesting stalls including a bring and buy and also a raffle.Do come along for a chat with your friends over a coffee or cup of tea. We appreciate all the support we receive from the members of St Hilary's Church and the local community. Apologies for disruption as repairs continue in Killay Parish Centre Due to a long term water leak in one of the toilet areas in the Parish Centre,we have found ourselves having to dry out the structure of that part of the building.Clearly this leak has been running un-noticed for some time.Once the structure is dried out,then flooring needs to be re-layed,walls need re-plastering and decorating. These works will take several more weeks.TheVicar,Churchwardens and members of the PCC ask all users of the Parish Centre to bear with us whilst these works are carried out.Many thanks for your understanding. 2020 Rotas (St Hilary’s) I have taken over the Rotas for next year and am compiling a list of people to be included in the following capacities: Readers,Sidespersons,Taking the Elements to theAltar & Coffee. If anyone else would like to be considered for any of these activities (or you no longer wish to be on the current list),please see me as soon as possible. Geraldine Rees Greetings from the Parish of Llynderw and St Padarn’s Institute. I am now in my fourth week of fulltime training for Stipendiary Ministry- what is affectionately called “Vicar School”.On Sundays andTuesdays,I am having onthe-job training in the Parish,then from Wednesday to Friday,I am part of the fulltime community of St.Padarn’s (formerly St.Michael’s) in Llandaff,studying for a Batchelor of Theology degree. I have received a warm welcome from the clergy and congregations of Holy Cross and Clyne Chapel.There is much that is familiar,and even more that is new and different.I am sure this will be a steep learning curve! I would like to thank you the Parish of Killay for your very kind gift,as well as for all your encouragement and good wishes.I would value your continued prayers for both Jeremy and me as we adjust to a new way of life.The process I am undergoing is known as “Formation for Ministry”.Please pray that I will allow God to shape and mould me into the person He wants me to be,for the work He has called me to do.
