We are especially pleased to welcome Rev Ken Graham a retired minister from Cardiff who is leading our services today.
Many will remember Ken as the former Minister of Beulah, Rhiwbina, he is now a member of City Church, Cardiff.
We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper during the morning service and all are welcome to share in the bread and wine.
Our ‘Copper Pot’ is on the table waiting for your ‘small change’, the money is donated to ‘local’ charities.
Fair-traded refreshments will be served in the hall following the morning service. We invite you to join us for this time of informal fellowship.

News of Other Churches
For 22 years Llanfair Uniting Church has been making a tangible difference to the lives of the residents of Penrhys. This has been a joint venture between eight Christian denominations in Wales – and the community itself.
Llanfair is now facing significant challenges with the building due to the method of construction and the high winds and they now need to make repairs to the roof – in recent years they have been using financial reserves in order to pay running costs.
The sponsoring body has met to discuss the future of Llanfair, and the denominations involved are all committed to the continuation of the church and are seeking to address the necessary issues as a matter of urgency. Holding measures have been put in place. In practical terms this means that the replacement of the roof has been put on hold and no overseas volunteers will be recruited for September 2014 until funding has been secured.
Our friends at Llanfair would value our prayers and support.
