Dinesig a Chymunedol
Mynd ir Eglwys
Roedd dyddiau llawer o bobl yn gysylltiedig â gweithgareddaur
eglwys. Roedd 24 Medi ynghanol tymor y Gwasanaethau Diolchgarwch ac roedd llawer
yn brysur gydar rhain.
- Worked in Abergavenny Baptists Church weekly
coffee morning until mid-day - town crowded for market day. Lots of visitors
to the town - we were busy selling coffee, tea, toast and home made cakes
- takings were £35 towards Church heating and lighting costs. My six
pots of home made jam sold almost immediately! Spent an hour and a half counting
the Church money from Sunday's Harvest Service and Harvest lunch collection
and preparing - and balancing - the Church accounts.

- My neighbour called later, we finished off
a bottle of sherry and discussed church matters - mother's union, harvest
festival and fund raising.
- My leisure time was attending the United Reformed
Church Fellowship meeting at the home of one of the church members when a
lady gave a short talk telling of her experiences, working in London as a
telephonist, during the World War II, and we all enjoyed tea and chocolate
- Took a car full to the
afternoon meeting at the Mission Hall Cwmtwrch. About 25 of us from lots of
different churches in the area. Lovely sandwiches, cake, catch up on chat
over a cup of tea afterwards.
- To Cusop at 7.30 to take choir practice. Worked
at the music for forthcoming Harvest Service (Friday 27th September). 15 choristers
present and Dr Derek Wilson playing the organ. The Harvest Sung Evensong will
be conducted according to the Book of Common Prayer which, together with the
music, is mainly as the service would have been 100 years ago (except for
the Anthem setting of Psalm 65 for which I wrote the music in 1995).
Hymns: Come ye thankful people,
To Thee, O Lord our hearts we raise;
Fair waved the golden corn, and
We plough the fields and scatter.
Psalm 65, the Magnificat and the Nunc Dimittis sung to Anglican Chant.
Prayers and responses: Tallis Festal in C.
Anthem: Thou visitest the Earth
Final Amen: Stainer's Sevenfold.
