During Covid-19

What has stopPED for the time being

During the Covid-19 pandemic, in line with Government guidelines our public church services have ceased and most of our church buildings are closed.

From June 22, the Welsh Government and the Church in Wales have allowed churches to open for private (personal) prayer with appropriate measures in place to ensure the health and wellbeing of church visitors and those who supervise the opening.

In our Ministry Area, Llangors Church will now be open for private/personal prayer from 10am to 11am each Thursday morning, beginning 2nd July.   Also Brecon Cathedral is now open for private/personal prayer on Mondays to Fridays from 10am to 2pm and on Saturdays and Sundays from 3pm to 5pm.

What REMAINs IN THE BEACONS BENEFICE TO help you

Be assured that God’s love for us remains. In the absence of public church services, we hope you will find some of these resources helpful:

Ministry Area Weekly Notice-sheet  In the absence of church services, we are publishing a weekly notice-sheet which will contain a weekly letter and notices about all the Sunday services from Kelvin Richards as Priest in Charge or one of the clergy in the Ministry Team, together with a short service to follow at home with readings, prayers and a short address.  You’ll find a link to the current Notice-sheet in a weekly News Post in the list on the right side of the Home Page.  All Notice-sheets will be archived on the Notice-sheet webpage.

Ministry Area Video-services  We are also recording a video-service for each Sunday and stream these via YouTube.  Each time we publish a video-service, we’ll highlight this and give the link to YouTube in the weekly News Post on the right side of the Home Page.

Live Zoom services  We also hold live services via Zoom each Sunday at 10.30am.  Those in our Ministry Area are welcome to join these, but you need to contact or have been in touch with one of the Ministry Team beforehand to get the link for you to join.  Liz Bramley also holds Zoom services, currently fortnightly, for the Family Church group that used to meet monthly in the Henderson Hall – contact Liz for details.

Ministry and support  The Ministry Team is still available to be contacted by phone or email.  And our congregations exist within our local communities where we must all keep in contact with and help one another as far as possible.

Enquiries   For any enquiries please contact Revd Kelvin Richards, Priest in Charge.
