We are an open evangelical church that welcomes all traditions and is part of the Anglican Church in Wales within the Diocese of St David's.
In normal circumstances services held in church every week on Sundays.
We have an active junior church for young people who meet at the same time as the service.
We also meet during the week for prayer, bible teaching and social events.
A message from the vicar (updated on 15 May 2020)
We are now going into the eighth week of lockdown, and despite a few of the restrictions being relaxed, the country is still more or less paralysed. Although the measures have been put in place to protect our health, there have been several unavoidable serious consequences for millions of people. Despite generous government aid, many people are facing long term economic disaster through either losing their businesses or their jobs. Even now, many families are struggling financially. Social isolation, especially for millions of people who are aged, housebound and living alone, has also taken its toll causing many people to become depressed. Despite being able to keep in contact with others through the wonders of technology, there is no substitute for direct social interaction.
In such circumstances I to continue to urge you to continue to pray for others, and to give each other mutual comfort and support by means of a telephone call, or a letter or card. If you know of anyone, whether a church member or not, who is struggling to cope with social isolation let me know, and I will put a network of support in place for them. Indeed, if you are aware of any kind of urgent need that calls for my assistance, please inform me directly by either contacting me on 01269 822275 or by sending me a message to my personal email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many people are pondering about what God is doing in the present situation? Time will tell whether or not he is using this evil to create a better world as some forecast. Indeed, those who have lost loved ones to the virus in torturous circumstances would be horrified if they were told that. Christian optimists looked forward to a golden age at the end of the First World War only to be bitterly disillusioned twenty years later with the outbreak of an even more horrific war in 1939. It’s better to leave forecasting the future in the hands of God and not start playing God ourselves as some Christians are prone to do. All we can say with confidence is that God is present with his children in their tribulation as he was in Biblical times. He upholds, strengthens and comforts those who suffer in every age
May the Lord uphold us, protect us and fill us with his joy and peace.
Tangnefedd Duw sydd uwchlaw pob deall a gadwo eich calonnau a'ch meddyliau yng ngwybodaeth a chariad Duw, a'i Fab Iesu Grist ein Harglwydd.
P.S. Weekly sermon meditations are still to be found on our website.
With every blessing,
A special prayer during the coronavirus pandemic
Loving Lord, we commend to your love and care all those who are suffering from the coronavirus throughout the world. Comfort those who have lost a loved one with the illness. Give wisdom to policy makers, skill to the researchers and help to everyone in distress. Bring a sense of calm to us all in these days of uncertainty and distress. This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord who showed compassion to the outcast, acceptance to the rejected and love to those to whom no love was shown. Amen.
