WELCOME TO ST MELYD'S
Reverend Ash can be contacted on 01745 776355 or at email@example.com.
As from the 1st of September 2023 our Sunday morning service will begin at the slightly earlier time of 11.00am. Tea and coffee will be available most weeks after the service. Also from September, the type of morning service will change around with Holy Eucharist being held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays and Morning Prayer on the 1st and 3rd Sundays. This also means a change for the 6pm services on Sundays with Holy Communion being held on the 1st Sunday of each month (rather than the 4th) and Evensong on the other 3 Sundays. On the 5th Sunday of a month there is a joint Mission Area service, held in different churches, in the morning and no other services. We continue to hold a service of Holy Communion at 11am on Wednesday mornings.
Sunday 26th November - There will be a Christingle Service held at 6pm. A great start to Advent for all the family.
Sunday 3rd December - There will be no service at 11am as we will be joining the congregation at the Church of the Holy Spirit at 11am. At 6pm in St Melyd's Church there will be a Blue Christmas - a service for remembering those no longer with us.

ABOUT OUR CHURCH
There has been a Parish Church in Meliden for centuries. Here people have come to worship God and to learn to follow the Christian way.
The Church is also the centre of the community where people come for baptisms, weddings and funerals. On these occasions we speak to God who loves us, judges us, forgives us, strengthens us and finally welcomes us home. The Church provides worship which has warmth and friendliness and also that formality and dignity which speak of truths that do not change in a changing world.
We invite you to join us.
