'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' Acts 20:35
April is BMS World Mission month. During the month envelopes will be placed on the seats during the services.
Used postage stamps
Please give all the stamps that you get on correspondence received to Phil and he will pass them on to Home Mission to sell. The total for 2018was over £4000, not quite as much as last year but still a valuable contribution that costs us nothing. Not so many people send letters these days but if you do get them don't forget to bring the stamps to Phil.
Bridging the Gap
A Big Thankyou: The team at BTG are very grateful for the food that is donated to them throughout the year. Please continue to bring tinned and dry foods to put in the TRUG. If you would like to be involved with the distribution of foodstuffs at Connect Life please see David.
We see on the TV of the problems families have through the school holidays with those children normally in receipt of free school meals sometimes going hungry. Giving to BTG is one way to help with this problem.
Christian Aid Lent Lunches 2019
Thanks to all who were involved in the Lent lunches in support of Christian Aid – those who made the soup, teas and cakes and those who came along to eat it and raise some money for Christian Aid. Thanks also to all those who gave such interesting talks at the end of each lunch.
The total amount of money raised was £945.75 of which £160.83 was raised when Mount Carmel and Bethel Penyrheol were the hosts.

Rainbow of Hope:
Let’s make a conscious effort over the next months to provide the Cardiff homeless with the clothes (in decent condition) that we no longer want or simply do not fit us now! If you can contribute, please place the clothes in a plastic sack labelled, Rainbow of Hope, and Elsie & Bernard will do the rest.
