Christian Motorcyclists Association

There is a Bikers’ Service at 3.30pm on Sunday 25 June at St Catherine’s where you can hear about the ministry of the CMA.  The bikes will be on display from 2.30pm outside the church and there is a bring-and-share lunch after the service.  It is unfortunate that this clashes with our church members meeting.

Pontypridd Choral Society

There is a free summer concert here at Temple on Wednesday 5 July, starting at 7.00pm.

Mission to Wales Week

Several of the Pontypridd Churches are joining together in July for a Mission to the town. This is happening all over Wales where churches are coming together to plan similar things. It is organised by New Wine Cymru and is based just on talking to people in the town. 
There is training arranged on Thursday 6 and Friday 7 July from 10am to 2pm in St Cath's(to be repeated on Thursday evening – time tbc)  On Saturday 8 July there is an opportunity to put this into practice out on the streets. 
There will be a joint prayer meeting on Sunday 9 July at 6pm Venue tbc. July 10 – 15 is the Mission week with people going out into the streets for an hour to talk with folks in the town.  We are asked to remember this mission in all of our prayer opportunities .

Sound of Wales Events

Come and join us as we launch EDEN – for an evening of creative inspiration and passionate worship with Graham Kendrick and Sound of Wales, along with break-out sessions exploring sketch-note journals, storytelling, artisan coffee and more…   Friday 14 July Doors open 6:30pm, main gathering 7:30pm at a venue in Pontypridd TBC.  Tickets are £7 and available to book www.jumblebee.co.uk/sowedenone

During this day we explore worship through the creative arts; music, dance, drama and art and encourage young people to discover more of the potential God has placed within them. They learn more about His heart of deep love for them and in turn, develop a heart of love for God and for others.  Mixed with plenty of fun, games & laughs along the way, there is something for everyone!  Cost is £15 per child. Please see www.soundofwales.org.uk for more information as it becomes available and for booking.
