Churches in Newport – May Bulletin

Churches in Newport


E-Bulletin May 2019


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.


News items

Update from Bridge Christian Counselling

We are aware that by this time next year we will have had to leave our premises in the Old Market Building. Details are very sketchy but it seems that plans are going ahead to redevelop the whole Market. We are also looking for more receptionists to be available at our Lliswerry site. Can you help? Contact  01633 258729 or [email protected]

Christian Aid Week – Tesco Collections

Mynydd Seion Church is arranging a couple of “bucket collections” for Christian Aid:

Tesco Store at Harlech Retail Park, Cardiff Road, on Wednesday 1st May, starting at 5pm.

Tesco Store at Spytty Retail Park, on Friday 17th May, starting at 2pm.

Please come along and say hello and support us when you are shopping, and we are also looking for volunteers to collect on these days (for one hour shifts). Volunteers should contact Gareth Watkins on 07810 814250 or via e-mail [email protected]. For Christian Aid Week this year, the campaign focus is on the plight of women in Sierra Leone.

Churches in Newport Facebook Group, anyone?

Helen McCann is interested in starting a Facebook group for Newport churches, if people think that’s a good idea. It would need a bit of thought and a few people to join together in administering it. If you’d be interested to be part of a small group who might meet to consider how best to do this, please contact Helen to let her know. [email protected]


Modern Slavery Lecture by Bishop Alastair Redfern

Modern slavery is a hugely relevant and important current issue and it will be a privilege to have Bishop Alastair present a lecture on this subject on 10th June, 7.00pm at St.Woollos Cathedral. He leads on these matters for the Church of England and was instrumental in steering anti-modern-slavery legislation through Parliament.  Definitely a date for the diary.
