Pennal is a small village near Machynlleth in Wales, and the holiday home place of worship for Tim & Jane Hough, who with Lynn Penny and John Headon are leaders of Café Church at St Bart's Church, Church Minshull

Café Church in Church Minshull has been hugely successful and enjoyed by all ages, following this success, the team was asked to spread the work to the people of Pennal.

On Sunday 30th November the team delivered the 'God Loves All Sorts' service, given to St. Bart's earlier this year. Thirty six people turned up to experience this new expression of worship and they willingly participated when asked to talk of their own unlikely friendships.

Our songs were, All Sorts of People, The Ink is Black and Jesus put this Song into our Hearts, all sung with traditional Welsh gusto and the last being accompanied with instruments and inspiring a couple of the congregation to get up and dance down the aisle.

The warmth of our 'Welcome in the Hillsides' was truly marvellous, especially from churchwardens Hugh and Beryl and from Anne who helped Kevin in the kitchen.

Thanking the team at the end, Hugh said a seed had been planted and we all hope it will flourish and grow there.

We hope to see the people of Pennal again in the future and wish them every success.
