- The people we know who are in hospital or have appointments in the coming week.
- Members of our fellowship who live in residential care or are confined to their homes.
This Week and in the Future……
Christian Aid invite you to the launch of a new exhibition “Uprooted”, sharing stories of Internally Displaced People from Kenya, Iraq and Syria. ‘Uprooted’ is at The Gate, Keppoch Street, Cardiff CF24 3JW 6 – 9pm on Wednesday 30th May 2018
The exhibition will give you the chance to discover first-hand the stories of some of these displaced people. A series of powerful images and individual accounts puts a human story behind the global crisis of displacement and how to speak up for people on the move.
We look forward to welcoming you enjoy the exhibition in the Pulpit Café, at The Gate anytime from 6 – 9pm. Refreshments provided.

I remain incredibly grateful to all the church family who supported this year’s effort – I shan’t be asking for sponsorship for at least another 3 years!! But it means a great deal to me, and of course to Save the Children. Diolch yn fawr iawn! Iestyn
