Mandy will also be providing an update on the Diocese’s bid application to the Provincial Evangelism Fund and how this will be a valuable resource for the Diocese as a whole.

St John’s Update
Dear friends,
You will all be aware that the level 4 lockdown will be continuing for another 3 weeks, so unfortunately our services will remain suspended….however!!!!!!
I am delighted to tell you that the interior of our church has been re-ordered so as to enable us to hold worship when the restrictions have been eased. Tony Holt and I have moved all the pews to create a safe and legal space (see photographs here in the photos section, and on our Face Book page). The same restrictions with regard to numbers and facemasks will remain, alongside the other procedures we had in the hall, but this does give us hope that our celebration of Easter will be possible this year.
Good news, I am sure you will all agree.
Please stay safe and God bless you all.
Alex

The Weekly Puzzle
This week we are joining the ‘virtual’ world, have you noticed that since the lockdown everything happens in the ‘virtual world’? We have virtual parties, virtual meals, and yes even virtual services. So, you are now invited to do a virtual tour of Gowerton – oh, and we even dip our toes into Waunarlwydd.
This is how it works. Below are a list of Biblically linked street names in Gowerton, in alphabetical order, the part of each name that is ‘speachmarked’ is spoken of in the Bible! There is also a list of Bible references referring to each road, all you have to do is match them up, be aware most of the thoroughfares have more than 1 quote. When you have done them, if you have a friend on any of the roads why don’t you ring them to say hello as you pass on your tour of the area.
Good luck.
Alex
