Churches in Newport – March Bulletin

Churches in Newport

E-Bulletin March 2020

This monthly Bulletin is sent out to help all the churches be more aware of our shared activities, and to keep people informed of news and events.


Come and join the Celebration!

Please come along to Newport (St. Woolos) Cathedral next Thursday evening to hear news from various Christian activities and groups about inter-church ministry of many different kinds which is being done, year in year out, across Newport. The evening will begin with tea and coffee at 7.00pm, with the Celebration starting at 7.30pm. Information stands will also be available, manned by people who’ll be pleased to answer any questions about their work.

This annual event is always a great joy and encouragement. Even more so this time, as last year it had to be cancelled because of the urgent repair work that needed to be done on the Cathedral. So if you can, please make a point next Thursday of joining in the celebration.
