Tango with Death

Waitresses are at the ready to welcome you to Estanco Ranch in  Argentina. The year is 1953. Please take you seats  and enjoy a a three course meal with your friends. Senor and Senora love to entertain guests in their home.

But no!  What does the Senora say?  Murder... surely not!

Listen to the cast tell their stories and the mystery will unfold...

Evonna and Dr FR Ensic...  have they been poisoning the Senor?

Has Tobo been seeking revenge?

Six people correctly identified the true murderer (no.. I'm not telling).

Everyone left the building unharmed, but having laughed  and talked a lot.

A new Moderator for URC Wales Synod

In a packed chapel,  (The Plough Chapel, Brecon)  the Rev Simon Walkling was inducted as the new Moderator of the National Synod of Wales, of the United Reformed Church.

A bus-load travelled up  from St David's Uniting Church, to  take part in the occasion and to wish  Simon  Godspeed  in this new phase of  his ministry.

The Rev Michael Jagessar, Moderator or General Assembly,  presided at the service and the Rev John Humphreys, a former Moderator of the Wales  Synod, gave the address.  He encouraged us to think of ourselves as churches 'on the brink of something new', rather than churches looking over our shoulder at our past.

Cantorion sang, as did Pontypridd Male Voice Choir.. and Simon sang with them both!

The sun shone for us to enjoy tea and cake on the paved area outside the chapel,  and to catch up with friends,before boarding the bus back home.
