Vision Focus

The church members' meeting has agreed a process to discern where God is leading our church involving times of prayer, fasting and discussion. As we pray, fast and listen to one another, we want to hear God's voice guiding us as we work towards a collaborative decision on what paid roles are needed at Temple to bring Kingdom growth.

Please see the Vision Focus document for more details of this process.

Summer Volunteers

We are planning to do some maintenance work around the church during the summer school holidays. We intend to paint the radiator housing in the side hall and do a major tidy up of all the storage areas at both churches and of the rear garden area at the Gelliwastad building.  Please see Andy or Wayne if you are able to help.

Games Night

There is a Table Tennis and other Games Night on Thursday 19 July from about 7.00am at Gelliwastad Road.  Please come along.

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. There will be another meeting on Thursday 2 August at 7.30pm in the Gelliwastad building. If you wish to know more please see Teresa Adams or Ruth Hoffman.

Big Bite Food Festival

This annual festival returns to Ynysangharad Park on Sat 4th and Sun 5th August from 11am to 5pm each day. 

There will be a Fairtrade stall again this year.  Volunteers are invited to staff this ideally in 2 hour shifts (11am to 1pm; 1pm to 3pm; and 3pm to 5pm), though help for 1 hour would also be useful.  Please see Maggie Hughes if you are able to help.

Finding hope and help in a stressful world

Rebecca Manley Pippert is coming to speak at a Ladies Outreach Event on Thursday September 20th at the New House Country Hotel Thornhill, Cardiff.

Becky Pippert is an international speaker who helps Christians gain confidence and build competence in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. Becky’s lively and engaging evangelism-training sessions take a fresh look at the truths we believe, and show us how these biblical truths shape our way of being and relating to the world. She wrote ‘Out of the Saltshaker’.  It’s a super event to invite Christians and non-Christians alike.
