0:00:210:00:25

-Today, we visit

-Y Cysegr chapel in Bethel.

0:00:380:00:42

-We're joined by its minister...

0:00:420:00:44

-..one of Wales'

-most colourful religious men.

0:00:440:00:48

-We'll also listen

-to musical performances.

0:00:500:00:53

-The chapel's minister

-has a very interesting name.

0:01:110:01:15

-Reverend Marcus Wyn Robinson.

0:01:150:01:17

-We're sitting on the Maes

-in Caernarfon.

0:01:170:01:20

-Why does it mean so much to you?

0:01:200:01:22

-My roots are here in many ways.

0:01:220:01:25

-I was raised in Caernarfon,

-I'm a Cofi Dre in every sense.

0:01:250:01:29

-I've come full circle

-and returned here.

0:01:290:01:32

-I've travelled the world

-but I enjoy coming back.

0:01:320:01:36

-This place holds fond memories.

0:01:360:01:38

-I look over your shoulder

-at the statue of Sir Hugh Owen.

0:01:390:01:44

-I attended Ysgol Syr Hugh Owen

-as a young boy.

0:01:440:01:49

-I look back and remember the great

-men of Caernarfon who influenced me.

0:01:490:01:54

-At that time, Reverend John Roberts.

0:01:540:01:57

-He's John Roberts Llanfwrog

-to the people of Anglesey...

0:01:570:02:01

-..but to me, in Moriah chapel,

-he had a great influence.

0:02:010:02:05

-I remember him

-preaching on the Maes.

0:02:050:02:08

-He said, "Look up."

-The congregation were wondering why.

0:02:080:02:12

-"At the building behind us."

0:02:130:02:15

-It has an interesting name -

-Paternoster Buildings.

0:02:150:02:19

-"Our Father is looking down on us

-all the time," said Roberts...

0:02:190:02:24

-.."Whether you're aware or not."

0:02:240:02:26

-We'll speak further later.

-What's our first hymn today?

0:02:260:02:31

-This was my beginning -

-Pa Le Pa Fodd Dechreuaf.

0:02:310:02:35

-Apart from the castle...

0:05:300:05:32

-..Segontium is probably Caernarfon's

-most important historic site.

0:05:320:05:36

-Most definitely.

0:05:370:05:39

-I often remind the people

-of Caernarfon...

0:05:390:05:42

-..that the Caer isn't the castle -

-this is the caer (fort).

0:05:420:05:47

-This is 1,000 years older

-than the castle.

0:05:470:05:50

-There would be more of it

-had Edward I not built the castle.

0:05:500:05:55

-Half the stones

-which made up this fort...

0:05:550:05:58

-..are in the foundations

-of the castle.

0:05:580:06:01

-You discovered something

-very interesting on this site.

0:06:010:06:06

-When I was a boy,

-digging and exploring...

0:06:060:06:12

-..I discovered

-pieces of Roman coins.

0:06:130:06:17

-There was one person

-working on the site at the time...

0:06:170:06:22

-..from the National Museum of Wales.

0:06:220:06:25

-He looked at it and said...

0:06:250:06:27

-.."Goodness me, this dates back

-to the time of Emperor Trajan."

0:06:280:06:33

-"How old is he?" I replied.

0:06:330:06:36

-"Trajan was an emperor," he said,

-"Between 98 and 107AD."

0:06:360:06:42

-I wondered who was the last man

-to hold this coin.

0:06:420:06:46

-What's remarkable is that

-I also realised at the time...

0:06:460:06:51

-..that people had travelled

-from other parts of the world...

0:06:510:06:55

-..to reach Caernarfon.

0:06:550:06:57

-It dawned on me that there

-was a world beyond this town.

0:06:570:07:01

-Realising there was a world

-beyond Caernarfon...

0:07:020:07:06

-..that led you to join the Navy

-as a chaplain.

0:07:060:07:09

-I realised that many people

-from Caernarfon had been sailors.

0:07:100:07:16

-Looking back, I'm grateful

-I discovered a desire to travel.

0:07:160:07:21

-By now I'm back...

0:07:220:07:24

-..having visited almost

-every continent around the world.

0:07:240:07:28

-It's incredible for me, today...

0:07:290:07:31

-..to be back on this site,

-where I was raised.

0:07:310:07:34

-Thank you, Lord, for allowing me

-to travel around the world...

0:07:340:07:39

-..and for the great diversity

-in your world.

0:07:390:07:42

-We're standing on the site

-of the old Moriah chapel...

0:11:250:11:29

-..where you were raised.

0:11:290:11:31

-Sadly,

-the chapel burnt down in 1976.

0:11:310:11:34

-In 1976, yes. 40 years ago.

0:11:340:11:37

-It's incredible to think

-where the time has gone.

0:11:370:11:41

-On this site, on an empty site...

0:11:410:11:44

-..I have memories

-of a beautiful building...

0:11:440:11:48

-..which was filled with the life and

-culture of Caernarfon at that time.

0:11:480:11:53

-Peleg Williams was a great organist.

0:11:530:11:57

-He was here every Sunday morning

-without fail.

0:11:570:12:00

-He had the ability to play

-the most wonderful pieces.

0:12:000:12:05

-You would have loved some time

-in his company.

0:12:050:12:09

-His great ability

-was something you took for granted.

0:12:090:12:13

-I became a member of the chapel

-when I was 13 years old.

0:12:130:12:17

-John Roberts was a great minister

-and a great influence on me.

0:12:170:12:22

-He was a minister who applied

-great attention to love.

0:12:220:12:26

-That's what attracted me to

-the gospel in the first place.

0:12:260:12:30

-I remember a communion service,

-here on this site.

0:12:300:12:33

-I had a spiritual experience

-which has stayed with me since.

0:12:330:12:37

-That's what led to me becoming

-a minister at the age of 18.

0:12:380:12:41

-My first sermon was here, in Moriah.

0:12:420:12:45

-I remember it like yesterday...

0:12:450:12:47

-..an appeal for us

-to reconcile with God.

0:12:470:12:50

-As I was preaching, John Roberts was

-literally at my feet saying amen.

0:12:510:12:57

-Peleg chose music

-that matched the sermon perfectly.

0:12:570:13:03

-When I look back, I realise that at

-the time I took it all for granted.

0:13:030:13:09

-Goodness me, I was privileged.

0:13:090:13:12

-# I don't know how to love him

0:13:230:13:30

-# What to do, how to move him

0:13:310:13:36

-# I've been changed

0:13:370:13:39

-# Yes, really changed

0:13:400:13:42

-# In these past few days

0:13:440:13:47

-# When I've seen myself

0:13:470:13:50

-# I seem like someone else

0:13:500:13:57

-# I don't know how to take this

0:13:580:14:05

-# I don't see why he moves me

0:14:060:14:11

-# He's a man

0:14:120:14:15

-# He's just a man

0:14:150:14:18

-# And I've had so many men before

0:14:190:14:26

-# In very many ways

0:14:260:14:32

-# He's just one more

0:14:320:14:36

-# Should I bring him down?

0:14:380:14:41

-# Should I scream and shout?

0:14:410:14:44

-# Should I speak of love

0:14:440:14:47

-# Let my feelings out?

0:14:470:14:50

-# I never thought

0:14:500:14:54

-# I'd come to this

0:14:540:14:56

-# What's it all about

0:14:570:15:03

-# Don't you think it's rather funny

0:15:060:15:13

-# I should be in this position

0:15:140:15:19

-# I'm the one who's always been

0:15:190:15:25

-# So calm, so cool

0:15:270:15:31

-# No lover's fool

0:15:310:15:34

-# Running every show

0:15:340:15:39

-# He scares me so

0:15:390:15:44

-# Should I bring him down?

0:15:450:15:48

-# Should I scream and shout?

0:15:480:15:51

-# Should I speak of love

0:15:520:15:54

-# Let my feelings out?

0:15:540:15:57

-# I never thought I'd come to this

0:15:570:16:03

-# What's it all about?

0:16:040:16:10

-# Yes, if he said he loved me

0:16:130:16:20

-# I'd be lost, I'd be frightened

0:16:210:16:26

-# I couldn't cope

0:16:260:16:29

-# Just couldn't cope

0:16:300:16:32

-# I'd turn my head

0:16:340:16:37

-# I'd back away

0:16:380:16:40

-# I wouldn't want to know

0:16:410:16:47

-# He scares me so

0:16:480:16:51

-# I want him so

0:16:520:16:56

-# I love him so #

0:16:580:17:11

-I must say, Marcus, the name of your

-pastorate sounds very interesting.

0:17:230:17:28

-It's a name that delights me.

0:17:280:17:30

-As you can see behind us,

-this is the River Seiont.

0:17:310:17:34

-The name of the pastorate

-is Glannau'r Saint.

0:17:340:17:39

-The reason for that is that

-all the chapels in my pastorate...

0:17:390:17:43

-..are on the banks of this river.

0:17:430:17:45

-I've travelled extensively

-around the world...

0:17:450:17:49

-..but I've returned

-to the place where I was born.

0:17:490:17:52

-As the Seiont flows to the sea,

-I care for the chapels on its banks.

0:17:520:17:56

-Marcus, I've learnt a lot about you

-and Caernarfon today.

0:20:400:20:43

-Thank you for showing me around.

0:20:430:20:45

-What are your thoughts

-about the future?

0:20:460:20:49

-It's important

-to look to the future with hope.

0:20:490:20:52

-You have the past

-and the past will show you the way.

0:20:520:20:56

-The Christian faith has survived

-across the centuries...

0:20:560:21:00

-..when many things have changed.

0:21:010:21:03

-It thrives in Wales today

-and I'm sure...

0:21:030:21:06

-..it will live long in the future.

0:21:060:21:08

-I thank my colleagues in Wales...

0:21:080:21:10

-..that keep the faith alive

-and practise it.

0:21:100:21:14

-That leads us to our final hymn,

-O'r Fath Gyfaill Ydyw'r Iesu.

0:21:140:21:18

-From both of us, goodbye.
