Bishop

‘Bishop’ comes from the Greek word for ‘overseer’. So a bishop is a senior Christian minister authorised to have oversight for God’s people. As well as duties given to deacons and priests, bishops confirm and ordain.

Diocese

‘Diocese’ refers to the geographical territory in which a bishop exercises oversight. The Church in Wales is divided into six dioceses each with its own cathedral in which is housed the cathedra (the bishop’s ‘chair’ or ‘throne’).

Prayer

Prayer sustains our human relationship with God and may involve words (formal or informal) or be silent. Prayer can involve adoration (‘I love you’), confession (‘sorry’), thanksgiving and supplication (‘please’).

Llandaff Education Week 2021

A chance to say thank you to everyone who works in and supports our schools.

How Can You Help?

Education Sunday will take place in Wales and England on Sunday September 12th this year. In Llandaff we are extending this day of prayer and celebration to a week. We need some extra time to make sure we thank everyone involved in the world of education in our diocese.

Below are a range of resources for churches, schools and communities to use during the week. We are also asking people to think about how they could support their local schools.
