BUDDY SYSTEM Mthr Rose is working hard to set up a ‘buddy system’ to keep everyone connected and looked after. If you are able to be a Buddy or if you would like someone to be in contact with you, please can you call or email Rose. Also, if you know of anybody from the parish who is without contact, please give Rose the details so that she can check if they want a buddy or not.

BOB WILLIAMS sends thanks for your prayers and good wishes through his cancer treatment. He has now been given the all clear and won’t require further treatment, just check ups.
HOW TO SET UP FACEBOOK OR TWITTER Mthr Rose has put together some simple instructions on how to set up a Facebook or Twitter account, how to follow our Parish page and how to change privacy settings. If you would like to receive this, please phone or email Rachel at the Parish Office.
MESSAGES TO FRIENDS While we’re all stuck at home, it might be nice to send a ‘hello’ or short message to your fellow parishioners. If you’d like to do this, please email or phone Rachel (by 12pm Wednesday each week) and she will include as many as space allows. If you have a picture to share of you at home/in your garden/exercising(!) send that too!
GIVING TO THE PARISH For those who pay by direct debit, standing order or Gift Direct, these will continue as normal. If you want to change the amount, for whatever reason, and need advice, please contact the Office or Viv Liles. If you would like to start paying directly from your bank on a regular basis, the best way is to enrol in the Gift Direct scheme. You can fill in your name & number online and someone will call you back, or Rachel can send you a form to do it by post. You don’t need to be a tax payer. Go to https://www.churchinwales.org.uk/en/clergy-
Unfortunately our bank branch is currently closed, so dealing with cheques is difficult at the moment. However, if this is your only means of payment, cheques payable to Parish of Penarth & Llandough can be dropped in the post box at the Parish Hall (no cash please). Payments by BACS can be made to: Parish of Penarth & Llandough , sort code:20-
ATTENTION KNITTERS -
This year, instead of the usual Cytûn Nativity trail around the shops in Penarth, it has been decided to flashmob Penarth with knitted angels instead. This means we will need lots of small angels to hand out, mainly at the "switching on" of the Christmas lights in November. All you knitters, we'd love you to knit as many angels as you can between now and September. I will collect them then, so we can put a label on each one saying, "Happy Christmas from the churches in Penarth" Thank you, Cathy Knapp ( 029 2021 2845)
If you would like a pattern, please email or phone the office and Rachel will send you one.
EMAIL BULLETIN To receive an email copy of the bulletin each week, please email Rachel at the office – you can also unsubscribe at any time.

A Prayer for these times
God of healing and hope, in Jesus you meet us in our places of pain and fear. Look with mercy on those who have contracted the new virus, on any who are vulnerable, and on all who feel in danger. Through this global time of concern, by your Holy Spirit bring out the best not the worst in us. Make us more aware of our interdependence on each other, and of the strength that comes from being one body in you.
Through Christ our wounded healer. Amen
( Revd Sam Wells. St Martin’s in the Fields. London)
