Tragedy

The Mayor’s Message

‘This council has heard of the terrible tragedy which has happened this afternoon in Abergele.
Council members would like to extend their thoughts and prayers to the family at this sad time.’

Rev Kate Johnson

We pray for those affected by the terrible accident today in Abergele. We especially pray for the woman who died and her family.
Almighty God, whose compassion we call upon to surround those in sadness and disbelief at what had taken place here in our beloved town of Abergele. Grant them your peace which passes all understanding because we ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord.

St Michael’s Church in Abergele will be open today for the community and all those who are affected by this tragedy.
