Welcome to Our New Minister
The formal Induction Service of our new Minister, the Rev. Andrew Kleissner took place on Saturday 1st April. The service was conducted by Rev. Susan Stevenson, South Wales Baptist Association Regional Minister. A warm welcome was extended to Andrew and his wife Moira by representatives and friends from the wider church and community. Andrew joins us from Christ Church United Reformed/Baptist Church, Ipswich.
As part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations, over 60 past and present church members met together for lunch at the Cyncoed Golf Club on March 26th. Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to see friends, both old and new, to reminisce and to look forward too to the next chapter of Christchurch’s story.
The Cymanfa, the second in a series of varied celebratory events to mark the church’s anniversary, took place in February. The congregation present enjoyed an afternoon of wonderful hymn singing, some emotive Welsh melodies and also the opportunity to share fellowship together.
