Being welcoming

This article is taken from October’s Ministry Area Magazine, available in our churches now. Our toddler group Little Adventurers has now been running for nearly a year! During this time, we have welcomed in many new families with quite a few having no formal connection to the church. If you ask our volunteers you’ll find out that we have a lively time with lots of chances to play, sing, take part in crafts and then bible stories. One of our…

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.

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…
