To our new Deacons…


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

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.

Bishop Bahati arrived in Wales on Friday October 10th and is currently touring the diocese. He will sign the agreement in the presence of Bishop Wyn on Thursday October 23rd at the Diocesan Office.
