The Diocesan Vision is to be launched with a series of Lent talks

Bishop June and the three archdeacons will deliver a series of talks exploring the Diocesan Vision during Lent.

The four-part Lent course will be delivered on Tuesday evenings in Morgannwg Archdeaconry, on Wednesday evenings in Llandaff Archdeaconry and on Thursday evenings in Margam Archdeaconry.

The Bishop of Llandaff, June Osborne will deliver the first talk in the series introducing the ‘Diocesan Vision’ with the Venerable Christopher Smith, Archdeacon of Morgannwg, delivering the second talk on ‘Telling a joyful story’.

The Venerable Peggy Jackson, Archdeacon of Llandaff, will deliver the third talk entitled ‘Growing the Kingdom of God’ and the Venerable Mike Komor, Archdeacon of Margam, will deliver the final talk on ‘Building our capacity for good.’

Bishop June said, “The Diocese of Llandaff and all its parishes are launching a new Vision at the beginning of Lent 2019.  Within those aspirations for the future of the Church in Wales we will review our hope and commit ourselves to telling a joyful story, growing the kingdom of God and working hard together to build our greater capacity for good.

I hope that as many as possible will join us at these evening sessions in different parts of the Diocese as we set out to discuss our plans and hopes for the future.  Lent is a good time to pray together and to consider afresh what is needed in our local contexts.  I look forward to seeing you there.”
