Llandaff Centre of Mission
Andy Settle leads the Llandaff Centre of Mission. It was launched in September 2015 and is based across the Deanery of Neath, working across eight parishes that form this deanery. The centre of missions’ work is inter-generational; beginning with children and young people through the school assemblies, Messy Church events and community fun days. They also set up The Lounge project, which is a weekly lunchtime club held in two local secondary schools and Chill Out, a weekly after-school club. The other focus for the centre of mission is support for the elderly, many of whom feel isolated and lonely as the sense of close community is diminishing. This includes running Connected, which is a regular drop-in for older people. Other activities that they run within the community include Prayer Breakfasts, Fellowship walks and Community Fun Days.
During the School holidays the centre of mission has been involved in delivering summer events, such family activity mornings, film show, and helping a Cardiff Senior school deliver a Summer Holiday programme. During the last three years it has also been involved in creating ‘The Pack Lunch project, working with Churches Together in Briton Ferry to make and distribute pack lunches to children and families who find the school holidays a struggle.
The centre of mission has continued to look at how they can support local churches in their evangelism and outreach and support existing fresh expressions of church, however it is fair to say that none of these projects would have been possible without a valiant band of committed volunteers that have come from within these communities.
