St Asaph Floods: Services for victims this weekend


Staff reporter

TWO services will be held in St Asaph this weekend to remember the victims of Tuesday’s floods.

On Sunday morning at 11am, St Asaph Parish Church will hold its Christingle service which will include prayers and reflections after the River Elwy burst its banks earlier in the week.

Then on Sunday afternoon at 3.30pm the Advent Carol Service will be held at St Asaph Cathedral.

It will see prayers said and candles lit by members of the community following this week’s devastating events. 

There will also be an opportunity at the end of the service for people to take time out for reflection.

The Dean of St Asaph Cathedral, the Very Reverend Nigel Williams said: “Our services will take the theme of ‘Light in our Darkness’ because Advent is a time of preparation for the coming of the Light and we want to show that there is hope in the Christian faith.

“The Christingle service is about Christ’s light and the Advent service is about the coming of the Light so we will be using these themes on Sunday to offer people the chance to pray and take some time to reflect.”

The Cathedral will also take part in Friday night’s “Party in the Street” in St Asaph by hosting “The Interactive Advent Calendar” which includes 24 things to make, do or eat.  The Cathedral Choir will sing carols at the event which is open between 5.30pm and 7.30pm.
