COVID 19

Message from Revd Rob Wardle – Bro Cybi Ministry Area Leader
21 December 2020
Dear friends, 
I am very sorry to tell you that we will not be having any more services in our Churches at the moment due to the increased risks from Covid19. This means there will be no Carol Service at St Cybi’s tomorrow evening and no Christmas Services in our Churches. 
Following the announcement by the Wesh Government on Saturday evening and subsequent Church in Wales guidance, our Ministry Area Council has carefully considered the risks to people coming to Church. I think we had all hoped that we could stay open but that will just put too many people at unacceptable risk.
I have spoken to Neil and Jane and we will ensure those people who had booked in to services are contacted and as clergy we will telephone our most concerned and vulnerable Church members over the Christmas period. 
We will be recording three Christmas Services in our Churches over the next few days and ensure these are available to view on Youtube. Andy will of course continue to lead our Zoom Christmas services as well and he will e mail separately about those.  We also hope to make DVD’s of the services available to those who do not have internet. I will write to everyone on our contact list to let them know our decision and convey my hope that we will be back in our Churches before too long.
Our Christmas plans may be disrupted, but will still celebrate the birth of Jesus; God coming into the world, just as we have done for over two thousand years.
with blessings and best wishes,
Rob

Work is almost complete on the work at St Cybi’s Church in Holyhead.  St Cybi’s Church, Holyhead, have been granted funding for significant repairs, costing over £250,000 to preserve the stonework, including important carvings, at St Cybi’s Church, Holyhead, which are being damaged by erosion and pollution.

The Church is pleased to announce, subject to a successful round two grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, it has now secured the necessary funding and authorities to start the work in the early part of 2019.

Funding has been provided by Heritage Lottery Fund (£158,500), W G Roberts Fund (£30,000), Garfield Weston Foundation (£10,0000), James Pantyfedwen Foundation (£5,000) Allchurches Trust (£3,000) and the Representative Body of the Church in Wales (£3,000).  These grants will help to preserve the church, and important part  of the town and local community for generations to come.

Location

The Church is the centre of Holyhead between the new Celtic Gateway Bridge and Stanley Street.

History

Nestled  within the walls of the abandoned Roman Fort, Caer Gybi, is the ancient  church of St Cybi’s Holyhead, founded in 540 AD.  Now visited by tourists from around the world, the bi-lingual church has been central to the Holyhead community for well over a thousand years.  Please visit the ‘Friends of St Cybi’ Site for further information on the history of our lovely church.
