The Journey is a group for 16 to 30 year-olds who attend Anglican churches, schools, or chaplaincies within the Diocese of Llandaff. It gives opportunities for young people to meet Christians of their own age, to discuss issues of faith and ethics, and to explore their own Christian vocations and faith journeys.
The Journey meets as a group for fellowship, friendship, and food. The meetings include discussions of relevant issues to young Christians in the twenty-first century. In a recent meeting, we explored film and faith by analysing the theology of Jesus films (such as King of Kings and The Passion of the Christ), as well as films such as Superman, ET, and the Harry Potter series.
We also had a fascinating “Grill the Archishop” session, when Archbishop Barry came to be “grilled” and we fired all sorts of challenging questions at him – concerning women bishops, prayer, organ donation, religion and science, etc!
For more information, whether you are a young person in the Diocese of Llandaff or if you wish to encourage young people in your own parishes, chaplaincies, and schools to become involved in the group, please get in touch with The Journey’s coordinators,
The Rev’d Melanie Prince (Archdeaconry of Margam), Canon Viv Parkinson (Archdeaconry of Morgannwg), The Rev’d David Morris (Archdeaconry of Llandaff)
