News From Rev. Gaynor Jones-Higgs.

What a wonderful event the launch of Arwyn Thomas’s book was, it was great to see the village hall packed just before Christmas and to sense a real community spirit.

In the book ‘To Remember and More’, Arwyn writes a section called ‘The Church Yew Tree Speaks’. Writing from the point of view of the tree he says ‘I haven’t seen a vicar for a long time.’

Well I’m pleased to say things are changing, I am in the church frequently as well as out and about in the villages, visiting the school and living in the new Vicarage. Our churches are boasting a full programme of services and events on weekdays and Saturdays as well as Sundays.

Gandhi is credited with saying ‘you have to be the change you want to see’ whether he actually said it is debatable, but the words are worth thinking about. If like Arwyn’s Church Yew you would be sad if the churches closed, if you’d like to have vibrant church communities in your villages providing a central meeting place for all people of all ages, then you have to be part of the solution.

We would love to welcome you to any of our events, and if you feel they aren’t for you then tell us what we need to do differently, we are happy to listen and open to new ideas. Change can be positive as well as negative.

I know there are people in our villages that support the churches but who don’t come to services, we are of course grateful for your support but we need your presence as well as your presents.

When Paul wrote to the early Thessalonian Church he told them to encourage one another. This teaching is just as important for churches today, if our churches are to thrive and be relevant in today’s society we need to be vibrant communities made up of all kinds of people that encourage each other and meet together.

On Christmas Eve the Church Yew certainly saw someone in a dog collar and also heard people chatting and singing carols outside the Church as they joined in the Santa Parade. I hope and pray that we will see the buildings full again (not just for funerals), as our communities remember how to be church and ensure that our churches continue to be living worshipping communities, that will be there for future generations.
