----__-Church Notes.


Church Notes. A very successful "social" was held at the Church Hall, Tonypandy, on Thurs- day last. The social was promoted in order to raise working capital for the carrying on of the: Ladies' Sewing Guild in connection with St. Andrew's Church, Llwynypia. The Guild has been re-formed, and the ladies are concentrating their efforts towards liquidating the debt which exists on the Parish Church by the sale of their needlework. The programme arranged by Mr. D. Lloyd was an in- teresting and varied one, those contri- buting being Misses, D. Davidson and E. Lloyd, Tonypandy and Miss, Lloyd, Perth; Messrs. D, Lloyd and E. Price, and Master E. Gibbons, Tonypandy, the M.C. being Mr, Tom Richards, Llwyny- pia, and the accompanist Mr. D. Lloyd, organist. St. Andrew's Church. There were an exceptionally good number pre- sent, including the -Vicar and the Revs. Wm. Price, W. Greening, and A. E. Lewis. Mrs. J. R. Jones ably superin- tended the refreshments, assisted by Mrs. Hidon, Miss Stockwell, and friends. The Church Hall was prettily decorated for the occasion. The greater portion of the refreshments, were generously given by Churchpeople. The following, which appeared in the I "Evening Chronicle of November 30th, which circulates throughout the districts of Gateshead and Newcastle, may be of interest to Mid-Rhondda Churchpeople: -At the Gateshead Police Court, this morning, the Rector of Gateshead, the Rev. P. H. Derry, asked the Bench to sanction the attendance at the Court of a, missionary from the Church Army. He said the Church Army had appointed Lieut. E. Davidson to attend the sittings of the Court, with a, special view to tem- perance work. The missionary's salary would be paid by the Diocesan Branch of the Church of England -Temperance Society. The Chairman (Mr. Walter Willson), on behalf of the Bench, welcomed a regular missionary at the Court, and expressed the utmost sympathy with the work he would find before him." Mr. E. Davidson was until quite, recently inti- mately associated with St. Andrew's Church, Llwynypia, and has been for some time past a licensed lay reader in the parish. He also took a keen interest in the local company of the Church Lads Brigade, having held the rank of lieu- tenant in the Llwynypia Company, in addition to other branchesi of Church work. We wish him every success in his new sphere of work.
