The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has launched a free national phone line as a simple new way to bring worship and prayer into people’s homes while church buildings are closed because of the coronavirus.

Daily Hope, which is available from today, offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of a telephone line.

The line – which is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044 – has been set up particularly with those unable to join online church services during the period of restrictions in mind.

Due to the ongoing concern regarding the outbreak of Coronavirus it has been decided that for the time being all church services, events, activities & groups will be postponed. This includes all scheduled weekday and Sunday services.To remind those who live nearby that the church is still praying, light a candle in your window at 8pm every night and print this prayer poster to display.

During this time we will upload a Daily Reflection to this website.There is a short service to use at home and some prayers you may find handy Here.

Pastoral visiting will also stop unless there is an extreme need. But please feel free to contact the clergy by ‘phone or email with any worries or prayer requests. If you know of anyone who would like a ‘phone call from one of the ministry team please let us know.

For further guidance please see The Church in Wales website

Please keep all those affected by this in your prayers.

May God bless you and keep you safe.

Bro Lliedi Ministry Team.

Letter from Canon Huw, 23rd March 2020

Dear Friends,

I have just received an instruction from the Bishop that all Churches in the Diocese of St Davids (along with all those of the Church in Wales) will be closed forthwith and not open even for private prayer.

The Bishop says “However rigorously clerics may adhere to the two metre rule, we do not want to send the unconscious message that it is ok to congregate with people with whom you do not live. Our country is on the brink of a very dangerous health crisis and we must be careful not to do anything that undermines the government’s message that all of us need to be practicing social distancing now. Up until now, along with the other Bishops, I have asked that, if possible, Church buildings remain open for private prayer. However there are a number of considerations that lead me to ask now that you keep your Church buildings closed.”

The Bishop conclude her missive by saying  “My grateful thanks to you all again and to use St Paul’s words, “be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication, make your requests known to God.” Let us learn each day how to turn fear, dread and anxiety into prayer. Amen.”

I will endeavour to keep in contact with as many of you as possible and if you know of anyone who is on email or on the phone that would like to have personal support then please do not hesitate to contact me or members of the ministry team. Please continue to pray for each other, our country, the emergency services and the ministry team.

With grateful thanks for our partnership in the gospel,

Canon Huw Mosford

The United Benefice and Local Ministry Area of Bro Lliedi was created on 9th November 2017.

The Bro Lliedi Local Ministry Area is part of the Arch Deaconry of Carmarthen, in the Diocese of St David’s within the Church in Wales. The Local Ministry Area (LMA) comprising of the former parishes of Llanelli, Dafen, Felinfoel, Llangennech and Llwynhendy with a population of over 68,000 is situated in the South Eastern corner of Carmarthenshire in South West Wales. It lies some twelve miles west of the City of Swansea and the Town of Llanelli itself covers approximately 2070 acres. The LMA  is a coastal region where the Welsh language is still widely spoken. It has a long association with the tinplate, steel, and coal mining industries, and is the home of the world-famous Llanelli Scarlets, one of Wales’ four regional rugby teams.
