-In this programme,

-Alwyn goes back to Sunday School.

0:00:400:00:44

-We meet a lively character

-from Ruthin...

0:00:450:00:48

-..and a cricketer who is also

-a deacon at Capel y Cysegr, Bethel.

0:00:490:00:54

-Our first hymn

-comes from Capel Mair, Cardigan.

0:00:550:00:58

-This is Iesu Cyfaill F' Enaid I,

-sung to the hymn tune Aberystwyth.

0:00:580:01:03

-When we recorded the programme

-in Capel Seion, Llanrwst...

0:04:400:04:44

-..Alwyn Humphreys

-went back to Sunday School...

0:04:450:04:48

-..in the company of

-teacher Gwenda Jones.

0:04:480:04:51

-Who is this?

0:04:510:04:52

-Who is it?

0:04:530:04:55

-Who is it?

-

-Jesus.

0:04:550:04:56

-Jesus, OK. We'll forget about

-this person for now.

0:04:570:05:00

-This is obviously

-a lively Sunday School.

0:05:010:05:04

-Your teaching experience

-must be a great help.

0:05:040:05:07

-Actually,

-I was a secondary school teacher...

0:05:080:05:11

-..but I raised five children so

-I'm used to dealing with children.

0:05:110:05:16

-I like working with children.

0:05:160:05:18

-How difficult is it to maintain the

-interest of children at this age?

0:05:190:05:23

-They need a variety of activities

-including stories and puzzles.

0:05:240:05:28

-We act, sing, and do handicrafts.

0:05:290:05:34

-Sometimes we have a change and

-do colouring. They like colouring.

0:05:340:05:38

-We have a cuppa and a biscuit at the

-end, for the children and mothers.

0:05:390:05:43

-That always goes down well.

0:05:440:05:46

-The support of the parents

-must be important.

0:05:460:05:49

-They are fantastic.

0:05:490:05:51

-They support us 100%.

0:05:520:05:54

-We also have Messy Church

-every so often.

0:05:550:05:58

-They attend that and it's great.

0:05:580:06:00

-What about the youth club you run...

0:06:010:06:04

-..for children between

-the ages of 11 and 14?

0:06:040:06:07

-Most of them don't go to church.

-Some attend other churches.

0:06:070:06:12

-Although many of them do not attend

-chapels or churches...

0:06:120:06:16

-..they like to come

-here on two Sundays every month.

0:06:160:06:20

-We play games.

0:06:200:06:22

-The minister asks for five minutes

-of quiet for everyone to ponder.

0:06:220:06:27

-We discuss Jesus

-and share experiences and stories.

0:06:270:06:31

-They always listen intently.

0:06:320:06:35

-At the end we share a meal.

0:06:360:06:38

-I cook for them with help

-from some of them or somebody else.

0:06:380:06:42

-They enjoy it.

0:06:420:06:44

-You've retired from teaching.

-You don't have to do this.

0:06:450:06:48

-What pleasure does it give you?

0:06:490:06:50

-What pleasure does it give you?

-

-I really enjoy it.

0:06:500:06:51

-I missed working with secondary

-school children.

0:06:510:06:55

-I was a biology teacher.

0:06:550:06:57

-I taught in Sunday School

-before that.

0:06:590:07:01

-I was at the Sunday School

-in Heol Scotland...

0:07:010:07:04

-..with good old-fashioned teachers.

0:07:040:07:07

-There wasn't much colouring-in...

0:07:070:07:09

-..just picture books

-with Jesus in a boat.

0:07:090:07:12

-We're all familiar

-with those pictures.

0:07:120:07:15

-For years we couldn't hang pictures

-on the chapel walls...

0:07:150:07:18

-..but now we can put up pictures.

0:07:190:07:21

-We have work the children

-have done for the cymanfa.

0:07:210:07:24

-We make it as colourful as we can.

0:07:240:07:26

-We can decorate this room

-as we like, which is great.

0:07:270:07:30

-Thank you, Gwenda.

0:07:300:07:32

-In Ruthin...

0:09:430:09:45

-..we met one of Capel Bethania's

-oldest members, Mary Williams.

0:09:450:09:49

-She's a bit of a character.

0:09:490:09:51

-How long have you been a member?

-Were you baptized in the chapel?

0:09:520:09:56

-Yes, that's right.

0:09:560:09:58

-I'm 93 years old.

0:09:590:10:01

-Yes.

0:10:020:10:03

-I must say that everything

-of any significance...

0:10:040:10:07

-..has happened to me

-within the chapel walls.

0:10:070:10:10

-I was able to earn

-my living near my home...

0:10:120:10:16

-..before and after I got married...

0:10:160:10:18

-..so I stayed where I was.

0:10:180:10:20

-What pleasure do you get

-from attending Bethania?

0:10:210:10:25

-It did us no harm

-to attend services regularly.

0:10:260:10:30

-It did no harm to our children

-either.

0:10:320:10:36

-At that time, the whole family

-would come to worship.

0:10:380:10:42

-Preachers used to come

-from all over the world.

0:10:440:10:47

-Who were the great preachers

-at that time?

0:10:480:10:51

-I remember

-Reverend Morgan Mainwaring.

0:10:520:10:56

-He came very often.

0:10:570:10:58

-I remember one

-who was very old-fashioned...

0:10:590:11:02

-..Eliseus Howells

-- do you remember the name?

0:11:030:11:06

-No, I don't.

0:11:060:11:07

-They would come for

-a Good Friday preaching festival.

0:11:090:11:13

-It did us no harm to go

-and listen to these people.

0:11:130:11:17

-They truly lifted you

-to the heavens.

0:11:180:11:20

-I think that every pulpit in Wales

-is sacred.

0:11:220:11:27

-Great truths

-have been heard from them.

0:11:270:11:31

-Between Sundays, it's surprising

-how often one has the chance...

0:11:320:11:36

-..to discuss religious matters.

0:11:360:11:38

-The general opinion amongst

-the Welsh and the English...

0:11:390:11:43

-..is that we need...

0:11:430:11:44

-..an outpouring of the holy spirit

-over the nation...

0:11:450:11:49

-..and possibly over the whole world,

-the way things are going.

0:11:490:11:54

-I'm sure a lot of people have asked

-you this question.

0:11:550:11:59

-What is the secret of long life?

0:11:590:12:02

-Live one day at a time...

0:12:020:12:04

-..and count your blessings.

0:12:050:12:08

-While we were at Capel y Cysegr,

-Bethel...

0:15:060:15:09

-..we had the chance to visit Bangor

-Cricket Club to meet a life member.

0:15:090:15:14

-You're a deacon in the chapel...

0:15:170:15:20

-..but you also spend a lot of your

-time here on the cricket field.

0:15:200:15:24

-This is my front garden.

-I began as a small child.

0:15:240:15:28

-I played my first game at 12

-and my last game at 57 years old.

0:15:280:15:32

-I played over 1,000 games,

-so it's like coming home.

0:15:320:15:36

-You cut the grass here,

-which must be a lot of work.

0:15:400:15:43

-Yes, three times a week.

0:15:440:15:45

-That's how often it gets a haircut.

0:15:450:15:48

-I also roll it,

-if it's a big game.

0:15:480:15:50

-This is the Lord's of the north,

-without a doubt.

0:15:500:15:54

-This is the place.

0:15:540:15:56

-We'd never move from here.

0:15:560:15:58

-You can't take

-those mountains with you.

0:15:580:16:01

-Sometimes, I'm on the tractor

-in a storm, sometimes in sunshine.

0:16:020:16:07

-But the mountains are always there.

0:16:070:16:09

-It's not unlike faith,

-it's somewhere to turn to.

0:16:100:16:14

-I've done it myself.

0:16:140:16:16

-I've often come here by myself...

0:16:160:16:19

-..when the dark clouds gather,

-as they have over recent months.

0:16:190:16:24

-I can be myself here.

0:16:240:16:26

-Me and this place.

0:16:260:16:29

-You had a serious illness of late.

-How did you cope with it?

0:16:290:16:33

-To think that it was

-my first time in hospital.

0:16:340:16:37

-Having a cancerous tumour

-removed at Christie's.

0:16:370:16:41

-It was an atmosphere

-where people were truly suffering.

0:16:410:16:45

-But they also pulled together,

-with a special faith.

0:16:460:16:50

-People can put their lives

-in the hands of others.

0:16:500:16:54

-That's the most significant fact,

-I guess.

0:16:540:16:56

-So far, I've enjoyed good health.

0:16:570:17:00

-This place is my therapy.

0:17:010:17:02

-Being here on my own.

0:17:020:17:04

-Sometimes, Alwyn, if you came here

-with a hidden microphone...

0:17:040:17:09

-..you'd hear the hymn tune Rhys

-being sung on the tractor.

0:17:090:17:13

-Do you perhaps think of this place

-as an extension of your chapel?

0:17:150:17:21

-Yes, it's very similar.

0:17:210:17:22

-I got my first century here.

0:17:230:17:25

-I remember some games here

-just as I remember some services.

0:17:250:17:30

-I prepare this place for others.

0:17:300:17:32

-Many Christians do the same.

0:17:320:17:34

-I was honoured, a year ago now,

-to be bestowed with life membership.

0:17:340:17:39

-That's what every Christian is

-- a life member.

0:17:390:17:43

-You're a chaired and crowned poet.

0:17:440:17:47

-Does the muse strike

-when you ride the tractor here?

0:17:470:17:51

-One englyn comes to mind.

0:17:520:17:54

-I wanted to write it

-for my grandson, Illtud Gwernydd.

0:17:540:17:58

-Gwernydd is an area of Bethesda

-at the foot of the Carneddau.

0:17:580:18:02

-This is what came to me.

0:18:020:18:05

-"Illtud,

-you'll always see the slopes

0:18:050:18:08

-"In the sunshine of your years

0:18:090:18:11

-"Roam upon them beyond Gwernydd

-and walk freely on the Carneddau."

0:18:110:18:15

-Those slopes face every Christian.

0:18:160:18:19

-We walk those slopes, knowing

-that someone's holding our hand.

0:18:190:18:23

-Someday, we'll all see the light

-at the top of the mountain.

0:18:230:18:28

-I hope you enjoyed revisiting...

0:21:250:21:27

-..a few of the characters

-we met during the series.

0:21:270:21:31

-We've come to our final hymn,

-from Bethania Chapel, Ruthin.

0:21:310:21:35

-To the hymn tune Malvern...

0:21:350:21:38

-"O! Tyred, Arglwydd Mawr

0:21:380:21:40

-"Dihidla o'r nef i lawr

0:21:400:21:42

-"Gawodydd pur"

0:21:420:21:43

-From all of us, goodbye.
