Last month the women’s fellowship at Skewen invited Blood bike volunteers to explain their vital work in transporting blood and breast milk to areas of wales where there is an acute need.
The ladies were invited to sit on the Yamaha 1300cc motorbike. those who could manage the hop up enjoyed the experience. Just glad the ignition key was not in the ignition.
Skewen fun quiz winners celebrated their win last month. The quiz is held on the fourth Friday of the month at 7.00pm. Come along a have a great time you will be most welcome.
Good Friday afternoon found the Churches in Skewen joining together to hold our annual open air service led by the Salvation Army. Despite the inclement weather there was a good turnout and was as always a very special service.
The leadership team at Skewen Church have recently had broadband installed for use within the church and for hall hirers. We intend to run basic computer use classes soon and hope the broadband will assist our existing hall hirers businesses and attract new hirers.
Skewen Church and Hall have recently had Wi Fi installed. this will greatly improve our Church activities and be of great benefit to hall hirers. There are plans to set up basic training on computer and website use and downstream films etc.
We will be actively advertising the hall for external training and conference use as there is now a digital overhead projector, and audio speaker system. All you need to do is bring your own laptop.
The boys have been on their travels again – this month to the Royal Mint, Llantrisant. We had a great time on the tour of the mint, but alas there were no samples to take home.
