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.

Save the date

There will be a family fun day at Garwnant on Saturday 14 July 2018.  Lifts will be available for those without transport.

Postage Stamps for The Leprosy Mission

Ann Harris has for several years collected used postage stamps for the benefit of The Leprosy Mission charity.  She extends her thanks to this fellowship that has supported her in this, however she is regretfully unable to continue this work.  For those who wish to continue donating, Coedpenmaen Baptist Church continue this ministry.
