We are hoping to re-open the Foodbank at Bethel Baptist Church on Wednesday 29th September. During the Covid crisis, we have been running a delivery service throughout the Vale, which has proved to be a lifeline for countless families.

I am so grateful to those of you who have continued to faithfully support us, both through some extremely generous financial donations and by putting items into the donation boxes at Waitrose and the Co-op. Please don’t stop as we now need to build up our stock for our re-opening.

We are always looking for more volunteers to join our ‘Foodbank family.’ If you feel that the Lord is calling you to asssit please do ring me for further details on 01446 771 728. Age is no barrier, as long as you’re in good health and have been doubly vaccinated. I very much look forward to hearing from you. Ewa Thomas



The Diocesan Evangelisation Commission is pleased to announce a second run of its Archdiocesan Evangelisation Programme. The first run was very successful. Participants were enthusiastic about it and several of them have written glowing comments.

Spread the Gospel: Developing a Missionary Parish.
The Programme has been approved by His Grace, Archbishop George Stack. It is a seven-week programme, running for one and half hours via Zoom on one evening a week. The dates will be Tuesday, September 28th, October 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th and November 2nd and 9th. It will be delivered once again by members of the Evangelisation Commission.

The Programme is open to all parishioners and clergy across the Archdiocese.

The Programme will remind participants of the Great Commission and the basic Gospel message. It will cover a rudimentary history of the early church and will consider important messages from recent papal papers, how to give witness testimonies, evangelise non-church going Catholics with practical approaches and tools for building a parish team to evangelise.

The Genesis Mission will be an important follow-on activity offered to participants, providing the necessary skills for successful encounters.

For more information and to register for the Programme, please email Madeleine Walters at
