News From Rev. Gaynor Jones-Higgs.

Churches – Benefice of Llanpumsaint with Llanllawddog including St Celynin Bronwydd

This morning before I began to write this article I spent a glorious hour with the children from Ysgol Llanpumsaint in the Llanpumsaint church building, answering their thoughtful questions about Church and God.

Children are natural theologians. They are curious about things and they lack some of the embarrassment that adults have, in not wanting to ask questions that are awkward or uncomfortable.

Jesus of course welcomed children. In The Bible (Mark 10:13) we read how when the disciples tried to turn children away Jesus told them “let the little children come to me”.  When Jesus walked the earth and people gathered together to learn from him, to pray and to begin to form communities that followed his teachings, those meetings would often take place amongst disarray. Meetings often happened outside, people sat on the grass or in trees. Some people might have been on the way to market and when they stopped to listen to Jesus they had their chickens with them. No one was in their best clothes, babies would have cried, people walked about at the back, children played and the crowds asked questions.

In contrast in Britain Sunday church services have become formalised, some people love the pattern and stillness of those services but they are not always the best way for everyone to connect with God, or experience what being part of a church community is about. Sundays have changed too. We realise for some families Sunday is shopping day, or when the children play sport or the only day people get to have a much-needed lie in after a busy week at work.

For Christians Church isn’t just a building we go to, church is a community that happens all the time. Church is every-day.

With this in mind we would love to welcome everyone to the first of our open church events at Llanpumsaint Church on Tuesday 10th July from 3.30 pm. If Sunday services aren’t for you please consider joining us for an informal time of refreshments, crafts, stories and opportunity to ask questions. Church is every day for everyone, we look forward to welcoming you.

Yours Rev’d Gaynor
