Gower Ministry Area Meeting

January 30, 2015

On Saturday 24th January The Gower Ministry Area Designate held a meeting of all those who will be involved in leading worship across the Gower as we adjust to retirements of stipendiary clergy and the moving on of a Parish curate. The day was held at Nicholaston House on the Gower and included time for worship, prayer, sharing of experiences and discussion as to the way forward in this new venture that we are setting out on. Clergy, Lay Readers and Lay Worship Leaders came together to get to know one another as well for many did not know who their counterparts were in various Parishes. Sadly some could not be with us for the day but we hope that this and other events like it will become a regular part of our ministry team meetings in the future and the next event is planned for before Advent and will possibly be a day looking at the Gospel for next year. Our day finished with a Celtic celebration of Holy Communion in the round chapel in the grounds of the house on the fest day of St Cadog an earlier missionary in these parts and beyond whose example of 'going out' we pray to emulate today in our new pattern of mission and ministry here on Gower.
