Good Friday & Easter The three hour Good Friday service started with Rector leading us along the ‘Way of the Cross’ and finished with a very moving Passion Service with some beautiful music sung by the Parish Choir, thank you to Mark and Helen for all the hours you put in to prepare the choir. Thank you also to Rector for a wonderful service. On Saturday evening we made out way to our oldest church, St. Illtyd, for the Easter Vigil. This service starts with the rekindling of a flame and ends with joy and Easter eggs. ‘He is risen indeed, hallelujah.’
