The Heart of the Matter

It’s a remarkably common phenomenon that when we, as people, experience intense suffering, it’s precisely then that we often find ourselves reaching out desperately for God. As we approach the final two weeks of Lent — a period often called ‘Passiontide’ because it is the time in the church year when we are drawn to reflect on Jesus’ passion — one of the parts of the passion narrative which is so often glossed over is the Garden of Gethsemane.

[April Fool’s!] Evangelism Funding to transform Cyncoed Church

Subject to final approval, we are delighted that the PCC and Diocese of Monmouth have reached agreement in principle for an ambitious bid to the new Church in Wales Evangelism Fund. The centrepiece of the bid is to fund a complete transformation of All Saints’ Church, Cyncoed Rd, creating a new centre for animal-based mission in South Wales. Pews and other furnishings will be removed to make way for small animal enclosures, and a new animal performance space created which…

Regroup, Refuel, Refocus

Reflections on Lent from this month’s Ministry Area Magazine. Life today usually necessitates plenty of road trips. Whether for work, for leisure or to see our extended family, we often find ourselves spending lots of time on the road from place to place. This Christmas just gone, over the course of a week or so, as a family we travelled from Cardiff to Aberystwyth to my parents’ house, then across to the Wirral to see my wife Amy’s family, then…

Using our gifts to grow God’s Kingdom

It was really lovely to come together for our first Ministry Area service of 2019 a couple of weeks ago. Over the last year, our Year of Listening, we’ve worked together to create our new Ministry Area vision — to ‘grow God’s Kingdom for the good of our neighbours’ by nurturing faith, growing together and strengthening our communities. At the service in January, we began to explore what it would look like to put this all into practice together, and…

Wait!

I can’t believe that it’s already that time of year once again where we look ahead to Christmas! Services are being planned, calendars organised, gifts bought and Christmas adverts are beginning to appear on TV. But of course, before Christmas arrives in our churches, we first share in the season of Advent. Advent is a time of watching and waiting, when we reflect on all the rich Old Testament prophecy about Jesus’ arrival, and look ahead to his coming again.…
