Seasonal Greetings from The Pales

There are icy puddles and bare trees at the Pales, but there are also candles and song, bringing Light on these dark days.
The meeting house looked festive inside for the Meeting for Worship on Sunday 16th December, where the theme was ‘ We are one’ and following a Pales tradition, candles marked the closest Sunday to the winter solstice and to Christmas.
Members of the Pales Peace choir sang at the Llandrindod Wells celebration of the 1918 Peace and were given a certificate by the town crier.
Friends of the Pales fundraising.
Following the launch of the FotP initiative leaflets and standing order forms have been distributed to all LMs in Southern Marches Area Meeting. The leaflet explains the purpose of the scheme together with bank and Gift Aid forms. We have already received some contributions and are hoping that more will come in during the New Year. You can see full details and download the forms here – www.thepales.org.uk/fotp
