Uniting together, Caring for all, Seeking God

Rev. Leslie Noon

I was born in South London, which is where I grew up and where I lived for most of my life.  I worked for 17 years for the headquarters of the Methodist Church, latterly in the Children’s Department, for I was (and still am) passionate about making church and God relevant to children of today.  Along the way, I also became passionate about making church and God relevant to people of ALL ages, and so offered for local preaching.  Although I never ever intended it to happen, somehow I found myself offering for Methodist ministry, and was trained on an ecumenical course in South London, whilst still working full time. 

It was a shock to be sent to Huddersfield for my first appointment in 2006 – but soon settled and lived and ministered there extremely happily.  After seven years, it felt right to move on, and I was shocked once more to be sent to Swansea.  However God is at work even through the Methodist stationing process and since arriving in September 2013, we have been very happy.

I have been married to Geoff since 1990 – he is a railway fan and I am a chocolate fan!

I have pastoral responsibility for Sketty and Clydach and the University Chaplaincy.

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.
