Pilgrimage to South Wales
We all had a great time staying at St Michaels College in Cardiff. We definitely celebrated the "Land of Song" led by Canon Chris Humphries, singing our favourite hymns one evening after supper and attending a concert by the Cathedral choir in Llandaff Cathedral one evening.
There pictures show the wall mural depicting St. George and the Dragon discovered in St. Cadocs Church, one of a group of us at the Welsh Museum of Life and two taken in St Marys Church, Abergavenny one of the Jesse Tree and one of the Jesse Window.

Cheshire Show 2017
Once again Mothers' Union ran the baby changing tent at the Cheshire Show. Pictured after their customers had gone home are the Wednesday gang who took on 200 babies that day on the hottest/longest day of the year - being 21 June!

Chester Archdeaconry Prayer Walk Wednesday 24th May
Our Prayer Walk on 24th May was at Whitegate and was led by our Chaplain Canon Chris Humphries. At each one of four stations Chris led us in prayer and accompanied us in song with his guitar. Our first station was inside St Mary's Church where we prayed for the Mothers' Union across the world and remembered the victims of the bombing in Manchester. Our song at this first station was the one written by Chris beginning with the words 'My boat is too small'.
Our second station was in the woods next to a den built by local school children. We prayed for the school [which is next to the Church] their pupils and families. At our third station we stopped near a farmer's field and prayed for the Mothers' Union tent at the Cheshire Show, farming communities and the Agricultural Chaplaincy and sung 'We plough the fields and scatter'.
Our last station was at Royal Vale Abbey established in King Edward 1st reign and which at one time was the largest Abbey in England occupied by Cistercian Monks but is now a golf Club and golf course. We gathered around the last piece of stone that remains from the Abbey which was demolished in King Henry VIII time, listened to a reading from St Matthew and prayed for the Kingdoms of the World finishing with the Calypso Lords Prayer. Some of us had an extra half an hour walk to the canal locks which are part of the River Weaver navigation system before returning to the Church and enjoying our lunches with tea and cake. A great time together, thank you Chris.
