It was a very proud day for the congregation of Sinan church when a recent member of our congregation, John Searl, was ordained as deacon at the Peterhead Ordination service held in St Asaph Cathedral. We had all shared John’s journey towards priesthood as he explored his calling to ministry whilst worshipping at Sinan. The natural focus on discipleship at Sinan has already led to one of our congregation becoming a Lay Reader in 2014. In developing his ministry, John has played a very important role in our family service and has led a number of pilgrimages which we all thoroughly enjoyed. We were thrilled when John was accepted for training and have watched his progress with great interest. We had hoped that he would be returning to Denbigh MA as a Curate, but the Bishop has decided that he will be based in Aled MA for the next three years. Hopefully he will return to Denbigh MA in the future. We wish John every blessing for his future ministry and feel honoured to have shared some of his journey to this point. Mervyn Sanders

Presentation by Dŵr Cymru on how they are tackling their Environmental responsibilities
As part of the Season of Creation the Sinan Branch of the Mother’s Union have organised an Open Meeting for Thursday, September 20th starting at 7.00pm with representatives from Dŵr Cymru. The presentation will include information on the major development currently being carried out at their Glascoed Treatment Works, as well as how the company as how the company is addressing their environmental responsibilities.
An example of their commitment to reducing the impact on the environment of operating their treatment plant, is the huge Solar Panel installation which completely covers the area of the Reservoir at their Glascoed site. Another environmental development, being undertaken by Dŵr Cymru, has resulted in 20,000 properties in the Wrexham area being supplied with gas processed from human effluent.
But environmental initiatives are often more complex than they appear on the surface, so there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions of the Dŵr Cymru representatives. Dŵr Cymru is non-profit company, which the representatives will explain further and welcome questions in what that means fir the people of Wales, and how it affects charges to the public.
The meeting is open to all, and refreshments will be served after the presentation.
Further information on the presentation and directions to the church can be found on the church website sinanchurch.org.uk
