Lay Pastoral Visitor’s in St Peter’s Pontardawe

November 11, 2014

On Bonfire night a group of 8 people were commissioned as lay pastoral visitors in St Peter's Church in Pontardawe. The group had trained along with one lady from Llandaff diocese and this "cross diocese" training had proved very popular. During the training the group enjoyed some excellent fellowship and learned and shared many experiences which will help them as they embark on this ministry. The Bishop reminded everyone at the service that this wasn't about offering the Vicar a 'helping hand' but was about exercising an important ministry in its own right.
