Wednesdays at Horeb

Things are gradually changing at Horeb on Wednesday mornings. The Fruit and Veg Coop remains an important part of the day, with bag numbers slowly climbing up again after their decline over the past year. On a recent Wednesday Pauline gave a cookery demonstration using some of the produce that the Coop provides. Cauliflower rice […]

Horeb at 90

This month, April 2017, we celebrate the 90th anniversary of the chapel building.   Horeb Chapel started as a Welsh speaking congregation in 1843, but early in the 20th century the demand for services in English was matched by a decline in the Welsh congregation.  In 1906 Horeb became a congregation of the North Wales […]

Gifts, Guests and Glory

What dominates our lives in the Christmas season? Certainly gifts, given and received are a big part of Christmas; not just the personal gifts we exchange among families and friends, important though they are. At Horeb we were glad to make gifts – over £250 for Shelter Cymru and almost £100 for Christian Aid. We […]

Celebrating Harvest

The Harvest Supper on 30th September happened before the Harvest Thanksgiving Service; strange, perhaps, but that’s how it was! After a good meal Margaret Williams spoke about the many challenges and successes of North Wales Superkids. They are now within sight of reaching the £60,000 target to replace their ageing holiday caravan, and we added […]

Kevin’s Return

There was a full house for the visit of Kevin Watson, Horeb’s minister in the 1980s and now one of the Moderators of the United Reformed Church General Assembly. Kevin’s sermon was challenging, and full of confidence in God’s love. Afterwards we enjoyed fellowship over tea and biscuits, and then at 1 o’clock twenty-eight of […]

Pie Power – fun at the Pie-fest

The Pandy Lane Pie Fest lived up to its name! The PIE theme stretched the imagination at times, as the piepulace were invited to eat pie (not the humble sort), roll pies, guess the weight of pies, buy pies, enter pie-&-spoon races, pie-rograph their pies, buy plants like pie-rocantha and pie-tunias, go in for a pie raffle and ‘pie’ […]

The 25th Village Quiz saw seven teams gather at Horeb to answer questions on Welsh writers, poisons, newspapers and breeds of dogs among other things. The lead changed hands during the contest, but the final winners were the Dyserth and District Field Club, with Dyserth Women’s Institute a close second. Horeb’s team came third.  Thanks […]

Big Brew & Birthday Buffet Bash Bring in the Bunce

A steady stream of people came on Wednesday 24th February to support the Big Brew and to help Colin celebrate his birthday.

Good Together

Joining together for worship with Bethel once a year is becoming a tradition. Whilst language would be a difficulty if this joint worship was too frequent, to do it occasionally emphasises that we share more than our building. Horeb folk may struggle with some of the Welsh, but the fact that we do it is what counts. Gron Ellis preached […]
