Uniting together, Caring for all, Seeking God

Uniting together, Caring for all, Seeking God

We were formally Sketty Methodist Church and Bethel United Reformed Church. We are now one Church because we think we can work better together than apart.

 **********

Uniting together

We are ordinary people, living locally, trying to make sense of life, asking questions, seeking relationship with God and the world around us.

Caring for all

We try to be an open and inclusive church, which means: you are welcome whoever you are; you are welcome whatever your lifestyle; you are welcome wherever you may be in your faith journey.

Seeking God

We follow Jesus who shows us that the way we treat others is as important as the beliefs we hold; that Christians may be concerned with injustice and suffering; that faith means acting with compassion and facing evil.

**********

BibleWe take our faith seriously and believe that God can speak to us through the study of the bible, through prayer and worshipping together. We want to develop our understanding so that we can grow in our discipleship and make a positive difference to our community and the world.

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.
