The October Mission to be known as 'Coming Home' will take place over a week. The exact dates have not been fixed as yet, due to the fact that it is dependant on a number of people being available. The idea is that we will collect a group of willing volunteers, from the Church, the Diocese and the Mission Area, together with people from outside who may join us for this concentrated plan to visit and inform people of what actually goes on at S. Bridget's and how we are committed to the people of God and the local community. On the Sunday, there will be a guest preacher and during the week both the Church and the Hall will be used for activities for individuals, families and young people.There will also be social icebreakers and the opportunity to share food and fellowship. Of course, all is rather dependant upon the Government and the Church in Wales regulations, but it is to be hoped that events will occur as planned.Please pray for this initiative and for all who will take part, those who will engage with us and that the power of the Holy Spirit will bring everyone 'home'. It is an exciting prospect and a great opportunity to get back to some sort of normality after these troubling times. More details will follow very soon and all your ideas will be greatly appreciated.
