Bible Study Fellowship
We are a group meeting each week to explore the Bible and, through friendship and debate, to deepen our faith. We follow various programmes of study and end each session with a bring and share meal. For more info please click here.
Our present branch was formed 21 years ago by Janet Oeppen. On that evening in February 1987, 42 members were enrolled – we now have double that number.
At our meetings which are held in the Church Hall on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month at 7:30pm, we have a variety of speakers and illustrated talks, and a lot of chat and laughter!
Internationally the MU has UN consultative status, is involved in literacy and development programmes and a range of diverse programmes in many countries around the world. In the UK we have a national parenting programme. Almost certainly, MU members will be involved with families in your local area wherever you are in the UK.
The MU has 5 main objectives:
To uphold Christ’s teaching on the nature of marriage and to promote its wider understanding.
To encourage parents to bring up their children in the faith and life of the Church.
To maintain a worldwide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service.
To promote conditions in society favourable to stable family life and the protection of children.
To help those whose family life has met with adversity.

All Saints’ Servers
The Parish of Barry has amongst its servers three members of the Guild of Servants for the Sanctuary who have amassed over one hundred years membership and belong to the Cardiff and Vale Chapter of Saint Barnabas. The Guild is a worldwide organisation for altar servers of both sexes who accept the Catholic Faith and Practice, priests can also apply and become Priest Associates, both parties can become full members after a twelve month period of probation.
During the past three years the local Chapter have sung the Guild Office either in All Saints or St. Baruc’s on three occasions. The meetings are held monthly and the churches visited cover the Vale of Glamorgan and Cardiff. We also meet nationally at least twice a year, and in November on the 17th we hold our autumn Festival at St. Woolos Cathedral, Newport where we will celebrate a High Mass, and later in the day sing the Guild Office, followed by an address by the Dean of St. Woolos, ending the day with Benediction.
All Saints’ Flower Guild has been running for many years, we have over 50 men and women who place flowers either at the altar, pulpit or two memorial tablets on their chosen dates. At Easter, Harvest and Christmas we have a group of ladies who regularly attend to decorate the Church with flowers.
Our biggest event was our Church’s 100th Anniversary; on the 5th, 6th and 7th of June 2008. A Flower Festival was held to celebrate the special event, the first since 1973.
