We hope that you will find it useful to find out about our church in Brynamman.
Unfortunately the vicar is back in hospital again so there won't be a letter or sermon/meditation from him this week. He hopes to be back home again soon, so please continue to pray for his restoration to full health once more.
A message from the vicar updated 3/4/2021
Dear friends, A few years ago I remember seeing an old college friend whom I hadn’t seen for years. He had a beard and looked so different. It took ages for me eventually to recognise him. On the first Easter evening Jesus’s disciples were a bit like me. Jesus their friend and master came to them as they were gathered together, but at first they were slow to recognize him. Although it was the same Jesus, there was something different about him: his body had been transformed. When did the penny eventually drop? When he showed them his hands and his side. I’m sure they would have recognized those hands anywhere. For three years they’d seen them at work healing the sick, feeding the hungry, and giving new life to broken people. Any possible doubt was absolutely obliterated for they also bore the mark of the nails placed through them at his crucifixion - indeed, it was the mark of the nails that finally convinced Thomas that it really was Jesus. The closest most people will get to Jesus is when they rub shoulders with his disciples. He wants us to grab the opportunity to make him known in the world. Don’t let him down. If you cannot use your voice, do what he did: use your hands. Indeed, one of the most effective means of revealing him to others is by our loving actions. Remember, a voice or a hand can change a life! As we have been unable to meet in church to celebrate our Lord's resurrection, the Easter DVD which Andrew has kindly prepared for us is currently being circulated. On behalf of everybody I express our deep gratitude to him and to everyone, both young and old, who has taken part in it. I continue to encourage you to keep in touch with each other by telephone and any other means possible. I also urge you to pray for all vulnerable, sick and elderly people, including Mrs. Iris Evans, who I am delighted to say is now home after being in hospital for fourth months; and Mrs. Mary Davies, who was recently a patient at Glangwili Hospital. Both are still very weak. If you know of anyone, whether a church member or not, who has any urgent need please contact me on 01269 822275 or by send me a message to my personal email, firstname.lastname@example.org. May Christ, who out of defeat brings new hope and a new future, fill you with his new life; and the blessing of God almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be among you, and remain with you always. Amen. Gyda ddymuno i chi oll llawenydd a thangnefedd wrth inni ddathlu atgyfodiad ein Harglwydd a'r Prynwr, Iesu Grist. I wish you all the Blessings of Easter, Gyda chariad i chwi oll, Adrian

A special prayer during the coronavirus pandemic Loving Lord, we commend to your love and care all those who are suffering from the coronavirus throughout the world. Comfort those who have lost a loved one with the illness. Give wisdom to policy makers, skill to the researchers and help to everyone in distress. Bring a sense of calm to us all in these days of uncertainty and distress.
