Any questions?

This year’s Diocesan Conference has a new item on its agenda – Question Time.

So this is your chance to get answers.

Is there some part of diocesan activity or policy you don’t understand, or indeed support? Is there something, perhaps, you think we as a diocese should be talking about, or doing? Is there anything, in fact, you need clarifying or want to know more about?

If so, you need to act quite quickly. The conference takes place on Saturday October 6th at the University of Wales Trinity St David in Lampeter. And Standing Committee meets on the 25th September, when it will select five or six questions from those received and, more importantly, provide an answer.

Anyone can ask a question  in writing to the Conference Secretary at the address below or by Email:

Ven Paul Mackness, c/o the Diocesan Office, Abergwili, Carmarthen SA31 2JG

FROM CRADLE TO COLLEGE A new kind of Church School

Ysgol Penrhyn Dewi has opened its doors for the first time, and everyone there is a pioneer.

It’s the first-ever Church in Wales through school, teaching pupils from age 3-16, and the first Voluntary Aided school offering secondary provision in the diocese since the 1920s

It has been formed by an amalgamation of the former Ysgol Dewi Sant comprehensive and the Ysgol Bro Dewi primary schools, both in St Davids, and the Solva Community School, and will operate across all three campuses – Dewi, Non and Aidan.
