Back after a 2 year break, Bible Unzipped is a free, monthly seminar that aims to unpack Scripture in greater depth than can be achieved in a Sunday sermon and to equip those leading in the church with some tools for studying and teaching from the Bible, teaching theology in an accessible way which both challenges and stretches us. It is led by several local ministers, including Peter Cousins, retired Minister of Penrallt.
The meetings usually happen on the third Saturday of the month at Rhos-on-Sea United Reformed Church, from 9:30am to 12pm. There are two sessions each morning, on different subjects, with a break for coffee and cookies between them. The next meeting will be on Saturday 19th January and the sessions will be an introduction to apophatic (negative) theology, led by Rob Beamish, and a tour of the rather troubled history of the book of Jude, led by Peter Cousins.You are welcome to contact the church office for further information.

Monthly Prayer Meeting
In addition to our regular weekly Saturday morning prayer meetings (8:30am in the Twrgwn Room every Saturday), we have a monthly mid-week evening prayer meeting for the whole congregation. All are warmly encouraged to attend. The meetings usually take place in the chapel, on different nights of the week to give people with other regular commitments a chance to attend. The meetings start at 7:30pm and last about an hour. On the week when the prayer meeting is on, our homegroups do not meet.
The date of the next monthly prayer meeting is Tuesday 12th February and the following meeting is due to be on Wednesday 13th March.

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 an hour. After we have prayed, we go across the road for a cup of coffee.
The next Prayer & Panad meeting will be on Wednesday 6th February.

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 (NB the services at Plas Garnedd now start at the same time as those at Haulfre). 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 3rd February. 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.

Our Sunday School Nativity Service will be on Sunday 16th December at 10:30am. That evening, at 6pm, we will have a (mostly) traditional service of lessons and carols accompanied by organ, with several presentation items from a choir assembled especially for the occasion.
As usual, there will be a short family service on Christmas morning, starting at 10:30am. This year, the offering will be given to Digartref, who are celebrating 21 years of providing support and assistance to those affected by homelessness.
Please note that there will be no evening services on Sundays 23rd or 30th December.
