Uniting together, Caring for all, Seeking God

ucsWelcome to Uniting Church Sketty

During the Coronavirus we have gone on-line.  We have a Zoom Worship every Sunday and a weekly prayer video.  Check out the links on this page to see for yourself, or go to our Church YouTube channel.

 

Uniting Church Sketty is an open and welcoming church for people from all walks of life who seek to learn more about Jesus Christ.  If you are new to church or if you are looking for a church or if you simply have questions about life, then we think you might find a home with us.  Why?  Because we too are people who have questions, but we have found it better to seek God together than alone. We seek God, but in fact we know deep in our hearts that first God sought us – it’s just that sometimes, somehow, we fail to notice and grasp this.  And so we come to worship on Sundays, desiring more than anything to connect with God and to connect with each other.  There are other opportunities through the week which also offer the chance to connect. If you want to join us on a Sunday or at one of our weekday activities, you will be very welcome.

St Dwynwen's Day.

St Dwynwen, the patron saint of friendship and love, is celebrated in Wales on 25th January.

Dwynwen was one of the prettiest daughters of the 5th-century King of Brycheiniog, Brychan Brycheiniog's 24 daughters. She was already betrothed when she fell in love with Prince Maelon Dafodrill from Gwynedd. Maelon became so annoyed that he forced himself upon Dwynwen, who fled into the woods and prayed that God would make her forget all about Maelon. Dwynwen then fell asleep and received a visit from an angel, who gave her a potion to make her forget Maelon, who had been turned into ice.

God then granted Dwynwen three wishes, to which, she asked for Maelon to be thawed, for God to give true lovers all their hopes and dreams and also that she would never marry. The three wishes were granted and Dwynwen dedicated the rest of her life to God. The remains of Dwynwen's church are still visible today on Llanddwyn Island off Anglesey, where there is also a well, allegedly containing a sacred fish, whose movements forecast the romantic future of visiting couples.
