St David's Centre of Mission
Val Legg and Ruth Busisa lead our St David's Centre of Mission. Launched in May 2016 it is based in Haverfordwest, on the Merlin Bridge estate. The area has a large housing estate of mostly rented homes, including a significant number of council and housing association properties. In parts of the estate there is a high level of poverty, exacerbated by high levels of unemployment. Although many residents are local, some having lived on the estate since it was built, there is constant movement of occupants and the area is regularly used to rehouse those who have been receiving additional support and are now ready to take the next step in building their independence, or those who have been moved from other areas, either local or further afield. The centre of mission runs an after-school club (FROG), where the numbers of children attending are continuing to grow. Ruth also helps Y6 students with Welsh and Val acts as a school governor at the school, as well as helping to run the toddler group there. They also run The Bridge, which is a youth drop-in, which includes a Bible message as well as a number of different fun activities for the young people.
