CHURCH OF ST EDWARD THE CONFESSOR

St Edward's Church is in the Parish of Roath, in the eastern part of Cardiff, in the Diocese of Llandaff, South Wales. We are part of the Anglican Church in Wales, and welcome everyone to join us for worship.

Our Sunday morning Family Service is a Sung Eucharist (Holy Communion) at 11am. The music is led by a strong and active choir, and the Sunday School caters for all ages from new-born. Choral Evensong is sung every Sunday at 7pm.

For over 40 years the Church has recognised its special ministry to musicians and artists in the locality, and St Edward's Music and Arts Centre coordinates that outreach to the community, providing opportunities for amateurs and professionals to rehearse and perform in an auditorium of outstanding acoustic quality.

St Edward's was built after the First World War as a War Memorial Church. There are four memorials: First World War, Red Cross, Second World War, and a First World War memorial moved to St Edward's after St Anne's Church closed in 2015.

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.

The first phase of the project was supported by a grant from National Churches Trust.

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

FORGET ME NOT CAFe

Every Tuesday: 2pm-4pm. We provide a friendly and welcoming environment, suitable for people with memory problems and their carers, also people recovering from a stroke or people who feel isolated and vulnerable.

GOODGYM RUNNERS

On a Tuesday evening at the end of January, our friends from “GoodGym” visited us for the third time. They moved all the chairs from the nave and gave the floor a good clean, making light work of an enormous task, and helping to maintain the ForgetMeNot Cafe Project. They also cut back bushes that were protruding through the railings, preparing the way for our new Gardening as Therapy project. Thank you once again to our marvellous friends from GoodGym. Read their report here.
