Thank You, Temple

“I would be grateful if you could kindly convey Sharon and my heartfelt thanks for all the help that the Temple family provided with Iris' thanksgiving service today. Iris has always spoken of Temple as a welcoming family church generous with hospitality. Today reinforced the truth of this - we are very grateful.” Richard Hallett

An Open Invitation

As many of you know, for the past 3 years I have been doing additional studies as the South Wales Baptist College in preparation for ordination. I am very grateful for the support and encouragement of many at Temple. Listed below are details of the College Valedictory Service, which marks the end of this part of formation. It would be wonderful to share this significant milestone with you and so I warmly invite you to come along. There may even by tea and cake!

The evening takes of the form of a Worship Service with part given over to the commendation of six candidates. They are very enjoyable and encouraging occasions as we are reminded of what God is doing across South Wales. Wayne Adams

A trip to Cotswold Zoo

Vivien Thomas is organising a day trip on Tuesday 27 June going to Cotswold Zoo near Burford. The cost is £24.50, but over 65s and children will pay £21 which includes coach and Zoo entrance fee. A non refundable deposit of £13 will secure your place on the trip. These prices will depend on us being able to fill the 33 seater pre-booked coach. The Zoo has a good reasonably priced restaurant, a children's play area, a mini train that costs £1 for a round trip around the zoo, wheelchair and mobility scooter availability (which need to be pre-booked) and plenty of open spaces to picnic and roam around. The animals are not free roaming but the venue has that kind of feel to it. Anyone interested please speak to Vivien,

This trip would suit retired folks, but all are welcome. Please spread the word to your social groups.

Holiday Club - helpers needed!

From Monday 24 to Friday 28 July we are planning on having an action packed and amazingly decorated holiday club in our Graig building to tell young people the good news about Jesus. For this to happen we need lots of volunteers, that could include you! We need people to create games, prepare crafts, decorate the hall, make teas & coffees and much more. So if you are able to help (over the week or in preparing beforehand) please contact Mark Dorey
