Prayer Triplets

What is a Prayer Triplet?

A prayer triplet is a group of three people who meet together regularly to pray and share together.  They are a great way of helping us deepen friendships, strengthen our prayer lives, and provide support and encouragement to one another. 

When & where do they meet?

At a place, day and time that’s convenient for all of you.  You might want to go on a walk together; meet in town for a coffee; talk & pray over Skype – it’s entirely up to the three of you!

What would be my commitment?

Suggestion is that the groups look to get together at least once every two weeks, for about 30 minutes – for the next 3 months.  If you’d like to continue meeting after that time – go for it!

If you are interested in joining a prayer triplet, please speak to Andy Sparkes.

Parkinson’s Cafe

A new venture has its first day on Tuesday 17/4 in Pontypridd, namely a social group specifically for those suffering with Parkinson’s disease, their carers, and for those interested in this condition.  It is to be held at the Muni from 2.30pm to 4.00pm, after the Muni has closed its doors to the general public.  It is free and folks can buy refreshments from the Muni Cafe. 

Games Night

Table-tennis and other indoor games will be happening here at Gelliwastad this coming Thursday 19/4 from 7pm to 10pm.  All levels of ability are welcome.

Dementia Awareness – Remembrance Service

A special candlelight service for families travelling through the journey of dementia will be held at St Catherine’s on Wednesday 16 May at 7pm.

Tearfund Event – Garth then Afternoon Tea

We're taking Tearfund outdoors to pray for its 50th anniversary! Meet on Saturday 2nd June 2018, 1pm in Pentyrch (street parking near the Acapela Studio, CF15 9QD) to walk up the Garth. Tea, cake and fellowship will follow from 3.30pm to 5.30pm here at Temple. We will be walking in unity for a short interactive bilingual prayer time and thanksgiving and praise for the work of Tearfund over the past 50 years, as well as laying a stone cross to symbolise God's faithfulness to us. It will involve a reasonably steep climb and uneven ground - so walking boots are recommended! Please let the organiser, Sarah Sutton, know if you are coming at sarah.sutton@tearfund.org  Also, please let her know if you would like to help with organising afternoon tea at Temple.
