CHURCH OF ST EDWARD THE CONFESSOR

St Edward's Church is in the Parish of Roath, in the eastern part of Cardiff, South Wales, in the Diocese of Llandaff, in the Church in Wales, in the Anglican Communion, and we welcome everyone to join us for worship, for fellowship and in addressing the needs of our local community.

St Edward’s is embedded in the community, with many community activities that offer fellowship and encouragement to those who are lonely or becoming housebound. Forget Me Not Café welcomes those with memory problems or recovering from stroke and their carers; Gardening Club brings together people for health and wellbeing; Lunch Club provides a good meal and a place to meet new friends; Cardiff Stroke Support offers help for stroke survivors. There is also a Community Choir and many musical events that help to bring people together.

Details of everything that is happening at St Edward's and in the wider community may be found on the Events in Roath webpage, in the Newsletter, and in the Parish Magazine "Roath News". Musical events are on the Concerts page and the regular series of concerts is on the Coffee Concerts page. Current bookings at St Edward's are recorded in Calendar. St Edward's also supports and contributes to Roath Park Cytun (Churches Together).

BUILDING DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

In recent years there has been increased community involvement at St Edward's, and the number of people visiting and using the building has increased rapidly. St Edward's is currently working on a project to redevelop the porch, WC and schoolroom area of the church site to better accommodate the growing needs of the congregation and the wider community that makes regular use of the buildings.

PATRONAL FESTIVAL CELEBRATION

Thank you to Bishop June for helping us celebrate 50 years since the building of the nave, and the consecration of the completed church.

GOODGYM RUNNERS

We have regular visits from our friends the “GoodGym” Runners in support of the ForgetMeNot Cafe and Support Group. On January 21st 2020 they moved all the chairs from the nave and gave the floor a good clean, cut back overgrown bushes in the grounds, preparing the way for this year's "Gardening as Therapy" project, and sorted through the ForgetMeNot mugs in the Community Room - all in a frenetic 20 minutes! Thank you once again to our marvellous friends from GoodGym. Photos
