Llandaff Centre of Mission
Neath, south Wales
The Llandaff Centre of Mission is based across the Deanery of Neath, working across eight parishes. The centre of missions’ work is inter-generational from children and young people through the school assemblies, Messy Church events, and community fun days, to support for the elderly, many of whom feel isolated and lonely as the sense of close community is diminishing. They also have continued to look at how they can support local churches in their evangelism and outreach and support existing fresh expressions of church.
Update: November 2022
The key focus now for the Centre of Mission is advocating for, enabling and resourcing evangelism across the whole Diocese of Llandaff. Andy and Meg (the evangelists) are spreading and growing a culture of evangelism working closely with newly appointed diocesan Engagement Workers, Growth Enablers and newly formed Ministry Areas. They encourage and enable others to join in with the Mission of God through encouragement, access to resources, information and learning and training, including the uptake of Church Army’s ‘Faith Empowered‘ resources and Meg’s bespoke ‘Youth Discipleship Training’ programme developed in response to local need. The Centre of Mission is fully engaged as part of the wider Integrated Mission Team working collaboratively to contribute to the diocesan strategy ‘Where Faith Matters’.
Here is a wonderful story shared by Meg: “I shared my testimony about how I realized the lifechanging truth of how much I was worth to God, and preached the Gospel off the back of it. After the service, one of the men came up to me and shared that he was put in prison because of a suicide attempt. He provoked the police officer and wanted to be shot and he did; but it ended up being a rubber bullet. He came up to me, with almost an awe. I could see the gears working in his mind as he put his thoughts together. He said how, like me, he must be worth something to God for him to still be alive. And I got to pray for him and speak that truth over him! That God created him with value. God has a purpose for his life and wasn’t finished with him yet!”Donate now
