Christian Union Mission last Week - 13th to 17th March

Thank you for your prayer support for the Christian Union mission week at Trefforest Campus of the University of South Wales last week.

Please continue to pray for the contacts made during this week that God will use what was said and done, including the hospitality offered, to break into the lives of those who as yet have made no commitment to the Lord. Also, that God will bless the ongoing conversations that will be had with those influenced by the events of last week.

Please speak to our university students over lunch for a fuller account of Mission Week.

Our presentations of the Easter story to year 5 and year 6 schoolchildren from local schools will be happening during the week of 3 to 7 April 2017, especially Mon, Tues a Wed that week. We already have four schools booked in.  This is more complex than the Nativity presentations to younger children and requires a bigger team. All sorts of help are needed and, in particular, those gifted in drama for both male and female roles are sought. If you are free and would like to take part, then please contact Wayne Adams or the church office. Thank you.
