Our Sunday School Nativity Service will be on Sunday 16th December at 10:30am. That evening, at 6pm, we will have a (mostly) traditional service of lessons and carols accompanied by organ, with several presentation items from a choir assembled especially for the occasion.
As usual, there will be a short family service on Christmas morning, starting at 10:30am. This year, the offering will be given to Digartref, who are celebrating 21 years of providing support and assistance to those affected by homelessness.
Please note that there will be no evening services on Sundays 23rd or 30th December.

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 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 date of the next monthly prayer meeting is Thursday 10th January and the following meeting is due to be on Tuesday 12th February.

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 an hour. After we have prayed, we go across the road for a cup of coffee.
The next Prayer & Panad meeting will be on Wednesday 9th January.

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 (NB the services at Plas Garnedd now start at the same time as those at Haulfre). You are very welcome to join us. We are particularly in need of musicians and Welsh speakers.
The next service is due to be at Plas Garnedd on Sunday 6th January. 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.

Want to try something different? Why not try Café Church? It's as simple as it sounds — a time when we meet together round tables, relaxing with friends and chatting about God and related issues. All are welcome. Our programme will vary from month to month, with live music, games, storytelling, video — you name it, we will try it!
Our café church events usually take place on Sunday evenings, starting at 6pm like our regular services, but in the rear hall and finishing later (normally between 7:30 and 8pm). The next one will be on Sunday 18th November. This will be a movie night and the film will probably be God's not dead.
