From the Minister

April, 2017

2017 is the 300th anniversary of the start of worship at Pentref. In each month we intend to do something special to celebrate those 300 years.

This year Easter falls in the month of April. Each year since its
foundation, Pentref has done something to celebrate the greatest festival of the Christian Church and this year we do not intend to do anything differently.

The purpose of churches and chapels is not to draw attention to them-selves but to give glory and honour to Jesus. This year we are celebrating 300 years of Godís faithfulness to his people here in Newbridge, but those celebrations should not do anything that takes away from the celebration of the greatest event in history Ė the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Each Eastertide for three hundred years the folk at Pentref have celebrated the death and resurrection of Jesus and this year we shall carry on in that tradition. On Maundy Thursday we shall do as Jesus instructed his disciples and remember him in a communion meal. On Good Friday we will once again re-enact the Easter story at different points in the village. On Easter Sunday we will celebrate the resurrection in both of our worship services.

You may not have been to the chapel in the last 300 years but you would be more than welcome to join us this Easter.
