Advance Notice: Casting the Net Gathering

The Revd Nerys Jones writes:

‘Over the last few years the Gathering has been a great opportunity for church members across the diocese to exchange ideas and experiences, to learn something new together, to worship at our Cathedral and to be re-energised in ministry and mission. This year’s event on Saturday 27th May will be no exception.

John Bell, the inspirational Christian speaker, hymn-writer, and broadcaster has been invited to help us to think afresh about worship and about the way we view Jesus. There will be opportunities during the day to meet friends old and new, to find out what is going on in other churches and to explore the Cathedral.

Have fun learning new songs from all over the world, trying out a wide range of prayer activities and taking part in hands-on workshops – you may learn some new skills and perhaps discover hidden talents! The event is designed to appeal to all ages and will be a family-friendly day out. If you are interested, please look out for booking forms which will be sent to all the churches soon after Easter’.
