Advent Calendar

You can now have a look at the cover of the 2016 Advent Calendar, but you can't open any doors until December 1st. If you can't see the Advent Calendar link (which should be to the right of "Headlines", above) it may be that your computer is remembering the last time you looked at the site - press CTRL and F5 to get it to go and look again.

We have a lot of new items in this year's calendar, and some of them are quite long (people are getting more adventurous!) so please be patient if they take a while to download.

Very many thanks to all who agreed to take part. Enjoy!

From the vicar - May 2016

‘Thinking outside the box’, ‘blue sky thinking’, ‘straplines’, ‘vision statements’ are all expressions used in today’s business world. They conjure up an image of high fliers seeking to bring about new ways to energise a business. Go to NEWS for more.

From the Vicar - April 2016

Every Holy Week members of the Churches in Denbigh Deanery meet to walk the Stations of the Cross at Pantasaph.  It is very a moving event and a prayerful way to walk the Way of the Cross. Each of the 14 stations are placed at the end of a zig-zag path that leads up the hill at the back of the Priory. People travel many miles to visit but we are blessed to have it more or less on our doorstep, you can visit at any time, not just during Holy Week. I can remember visiting several years ago and being struck by the stillness of the Padre Pio Garden whilst listening to the noise of the A55 in the distance. The noise of the traffic reminded me that whilst the world rushes on the peace of Christ is there for those who pause to seek it. For more, go to NEWS

From the Vicar - February 2016

February sees the beginning of the season of Lent. The word Lent is an Old English word which means ‘lengthen’.  Lent comes at a time of year when the days are beginning to get longer, albeit slowly. It is traditional for people to give something up during lent as a reminder of the temptations Jesus faced in the desert. Lent is also the way of good works and putting the needs of others before our own.

With this in mind, the congregation of St Dyfnog’s will be supporting WaterAid through their Jars of Change for Jars of Water Lent Appeal. By collecting and donating the small change we find in our pockets and purses throughout Lent we will be able to help bring clean water to communities around the world who lack the facilities for safe, clean water.

From the Vicar - January 2016

The 6th January sees the Feast of the Epiphany, the arrival of the wise men. Traditionally the wise men form part of the Nativity scene, but they travelled far and it is likely that arrived well after the event. It was a journey that may well have taken several years. Their journey would have taken them to unknown lands, across deserts and plains; they followed a star without knowing exactly where it was taking them. To read more, go to NEWS.
