Mission-Shaped Ministry

Our monthly Saturday-morning theology seminar, Bible Unzipped, is taking a new format for 2017 as we follow a year-long course on Mission-shaped Ministry.

The meetings usually happen on the second Saturday of the month at Rhos-on-Sea United Reformed Church, from 9:30am to 1pm, with blocks of 3 meetings followed by a month off. The next meeting will be on Saturday 11th March. Please see the MSM website (linked above) for more information about the course (including costs and contact details).

Podcasts and notes from many of the past talks at Bible Unzipped can be found at the Bible Unzipped web page.

Alpha - January 2017

Alpha is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. It is free and runs over a period of about 10 weeks, and is a great place to relax, make friends, have fun, and learn, in a non-threatening environment.

This year we are running two Alpha Courses at Penrallt. Both are taking place on Mondays in our church building, one in the mornings (starting at 10:30am) and the other in the evenings (starting at 7pm); the courses started on 23rd January.

If you would like to know more about Alpha, please phone Lawrence Moss (01248 713793), email the church office or visit our Facebook Alpha page.

Care Home Services

Once a month, a team from Penrallt visits a care home on on a Sunday afternoon to take a short service for the residents. We alternate between two homes – Haulfre in Llangoed (near Beaumaris) and Plas Garnedd in Llanberis – and the services are usually on the first Sunday of the month (starting 2:15pm at Haulfre or 2:45pm at Plas Garnedd). You are very welcome to join us. We are particularly in need of musicians and Welsh speakers.

The next service is due to be at Haulfre on Sunday 5th March. Please contact the church office to confirm whether this event is taking place or if you would like more information or would like to join the team.

Prayer and Panad

Once a month, the men of Penrallt have a chance to meet together to pray for one another. The meeting usually takes place on the first Wednesday of each month at 10:30am in the Twrgwyn Room. It lasts for about 45 minutes. After we have prayed, we go across the road for a cup of coffee.

The next Prayer & Panad meeting will be on Wednesday 1st March.
