Retired tax inspectors, teachers, armed forces personnel and a former power station manager are among the first people in the diocese to be ordained as new Self-Supporting (Local) Ministers.

In all, eleven men and women were ordained at a special service in St Davids Cathedral on Saturday September 27th

The new posts have been created as the diocese evolves new structures as part of the Growing Hope strategy for growth

DIOCESAN CONFERENCE 2014: LOOKING BACK, MOVING FORWARD

Voting

This year’s conference focused on Ministry, as the diocesan strategy for growth, Growing Hope, gathers momentum

A series of presentations, followed by Q&A sessions, reported on progress in a number of key areas: Self Supporting Ministry (Local), Lay Ministry and Local Ministry Areas

Conference also endorsed an agreement linking the Congolese diocese of Bukavu with St Davids. Sadly, Bishop Bahati Bali-Busane was not be able to be present although he has since arrived in Wales and is currently touring the diocese.
