Community Carols by Candlelight
Peace on Earth
With singing led by our music ensemble and participation of the community groups who share the Canolfan Penrallt Centre with us, we hope to make our Carol Service on Sunday December 10th at 6pm the highlight of Upper Bangor's Christmas. It is quite different from a standard carol service! Join us for a very special evening.

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 at Haulfre or 2:45pm at Plas Garnedd). You are very welcome to join us. We are particularly in need of musicians and Welsh speakers.
To celebrate Christmas we will be going to both homes in December to sing carols. The services will be at Haulfre on Sunday 3rd December at 2:15pm and at Plas Garnedd on Tuesday 5th December at 2:30pm. 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.

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 (Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday) 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 dates of the next few monthly prayer meetings are:
- Tuesday 21st November
- Wednesday 13th December
- Thursday 25th January

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