Diocesan Healing & Reconciliation Conference (Online)

Revd Beverley, along with Revd John and others from across our Diocese, have organised what looks to be a fantastic online conference on Saturday 7th November to explore healing and reconciliation. The half day includes a keynote address from Dr Gillian Straine, who spoke so well at our Ministry Area Study Day last summer, and a great selection of group workshops. Have you wondered about any of the themes of healing, wholeness, wellbeing, or rebuilding relationships? Are you looking for…

Resuming In-Person Worship – Stage 1

As a temporary step towards resuming face-to-face services, during the rest of July and August, we will be offering a simple Holy Eucharist at All Saints’ Cyncoed.

Up to 4 members of the same household may sit together, without the need to physically distance. If you wish to attend, on your own or with others, you MUST…

Christian Aid Week

Less than 2 weeks before the start of this year’s Christian Aid Week a small team of us met via Zoom to plan a revised programme of activities under Covid-19 restrictions. All our activities had to move online which was a challenge to our usual team of ‘big event’ planners to put their energy to a different focus. We are delighted with how the week has gone and the engagement that we have seen in our online community. People have…

An invitation to meet Bishop Cherry
