SERC Historical Trip

SERC Historical Trip - July 5th 2014

We had a blessed time on our very first annual church fellowship trip. We assembled and embarked our coach at Tescos Llansamlet. We were kindly allowed  to park at the store. A number of friends travelled by car. We enjoyed a coffee/tea stop on the way, arriving at Clarbeston Road for our first talk. It was good to join with friends at the Bethany Evangelical Church. Dr John Aaron spoke about the life and ministry of Howell Davies who became known as the Aposle of Pembrokeshire. He was used of God to lead the work of the Calvinistic Methodists in that region.
We then headed for Llys- Y-Fran resevoir where we enjoyed an excellent lunch. The children had opportunity to expend some energy and a number enjoyed a walk near the lake.
We then made our way to Nevern where Mr Aaron spoke in the Nevern Church about a lesser known minister, the Rev David Griffiths. Unlike Howell Davies, he remained in the established church.
A tea was taken in the village and we left to arrive at Llansamlet by 8pm. We are very thankful  to Mr and Mrs Gledhill for organising our day and for the ministry of Dr Aaron. Plans are already afoot for next year, subject to the will of God.
