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.

Chat and Pack – for Refugee Families

We are a group of ladies collecting and packing toiletries and other items for Asylum Seekers who are newly arrived in the UK. The next meeting is on Thursday 7th June at 7.30pm in the Gelliwastad building. We are collecting toiletries for men and women and other items listed on the white plastic box provided for donations at the back of the church. Winter clothing is not required at present. If you wish to know more please see Teresa Adams or Ruth Hoffman.
