To mark our Patron Saint's Feast Day on 17 July, our Church hosted a special service drawing on ancient and modern Welsh, Scottish and Irish Celtic Christian traditions. Psalms and hymns were accompanied by flute and recorder both inside the Church and outside in the churchyard. The first of its kind perhaps for many centuries, it was very well-attended with all guests being treated afterwards to elderflower cordial and welsh cakes.
