THE SUNDAY CLUB

We have an active Sunday Club for children aged 3 – 12.

Except on the first Sunday of the month, where we have an All-Age Communion Service, the Sunday Club meets in the church hall – through the gates to the right of the church –  during the 10.30am Holy Communion service.  Sunday Club members return to the church itself to join the service in time for the Communion.

The children come together to learn about and encounter God in creative, interactive, and relevant ways.  They are encouraged to deepen their faith and develop a sense of adventure in their relationship with Jesus.

THE CHOIR

The choir exists to enhance the worship of the church, and as such it forms a central part of the worship at All Saints’.

The choir rehearses every week.  There are both junior and adult sections in the choir, and both sections are open to new members.  Some musical experience would be an advantage, but is not essential.

Please contact our Musical Director, David Butler,

[ davidbutler31@yahoo.co.uk ] for more information.

WELCOME to All Saints’ Rhiwbina!  CROESO!

We are the Church by the Brook and opposite the Butcher’s Arms!

All Saints’ Church is not just a building, but a community of people who are united together to serve our Lord Jesus Christ – in Rhiwbina and beyond.  We are a fully inclusive church and extend a warm welcome to everyone.

We are part of the Church in Wales, and are one of four churches belonging to the Benefice of Whitchurch Ministry Area serving the communities of  Whitchurch, Rhiwbina, Llandaff North and Birchgrove.

Jesus calls all of us to try to live as his disciples, to show his love for others, and to grow in our love and knowledge of God.  If you would like to learn more about the Christian faith, there are a variety of ways of doing this and of exploring how you may be able to use your gifts and skills to serve God in the Church, the community, and beyond.

BAPTISM or Christening

Baptism is a beginning, not an end.  It marks the start of a journey of faith.  When baptised, a person becomes a member of the Church, a part of the family of God, and finds there is a sense of belonging: of belonging to a community of Christians, worldwide, all-embracing, and in which everyone is welcome and can find a home.  People can be baptised at any age, whenever they want to.

We would really value the chance to talk with you about welcoming you and/or your children into the church family.

COMMUNION

Baptism is accepted and affirmed as being the full rite of initiation into the Christian Church, the Body of Christ.  By Baptism you are born into the Christian family and become a full  member of it.

As a natural consequence of being a family member, you are welcome at the family table,
to participate,  whatever your age, in the Church’s family meal by receiving Holy Communion.

So an invitation to receive Communion is extended to everyone regardless of age who has been baptised in the name of the Trinity.  Baptised children can therefore receive Communion at their parent’s/guardian’s discretion, with the proviso that, under Civil Law, under 5s should receive the bread only.  With a parent’s or guardian’s consent, the over 5s may also receive the wine.

Receiving Communion isn’t compulsory, and you are welcome to receive a blessing instead.  When you feel ready to receive Communion, don’t be afraid to ask!

CONFIRMATION

Confirmation is a time of personal commitment to discipleship for those who are ready and are mature enough to make this decision for themselves,
in the knowledge that they are already full members of the Church.

It is a wonderful opportunity for people to affirm their baptismal vows, to confirm for themselves their place in God’s family,  . . . . and to signify, publicly, a willingness to be used by God in the mission of the Church as disciples of the Lord Jesus.

Confirmation classes provide age-appropriate opportunities for learning, study and reflection about the meaning of faith and discipleship.

Are you ready to discover what it means to follow Christ and to live out your confirmation?

The Llandaff Deanery Confirmation Service this year will take place at 6.00pm on Saturday, 23rd June. ( Venue to be confirmed nearer the date. )

If you have any questions about learning more about Baptism, Communion or Confirmation; or anything else about the Christian faith and/or serving God in the church and community, please speak to the Team Vicar with special responsibility for All Saints’, Rhiwbina, the Rev’d Peter Mortimer on 02920 650883.

He would really value the chance to talk to you, and will be pleased to try to answer any questions you have.

      Map and Directions:Google Map of church location

      If you are coming from Junction 32 of the M4 you will need to head for the A470 signposted for Cardiff.  As  you drive down this road you will pass through the traffic lights at Whitchurch Golf Club, then through a second set just at the bottom of the hill.  Eventually you will come to a third set of lights at the junction of the A470 with Tyn-y-Parc Road(There is a Travelodge/Toby Carvery on your left.) Turn left between the Toby Carvery and the Tesco Express shop & petrol station, and proceed along Tyn-y-Parc Road.  Soon you will come to some more traffic lights, this time at the junction of Tyn-y-Parc Road with Pantbach Road.  Turn left onto Pantbach Road.  Drive over the railway bridge towards Rhiwbina village centre.  At the first set of traffic lights, with Beulah Community Centre on your right, turn right onto Beulah Road.  Once past the shops, you will see a signpost pointing left to the Butchers’ Arms pub.  Take this, the first main turning left ( ignore Gernant ) onto Heol-y-Felin.  You will pass the entrance to Charlotte Square on your right, then the Butchers’ Arms itself, where the road curves round to the right becoming Tŷ-Gwyn Road. Ignore this, and continue straight on, following Heol-y Felin itself.  When you reach the  ‘earthworks’ (aka a grassy bank, a relic of the flood-prevention scheme ) you have reached your destination!  You will see All Saints’ Church on your left.

      Parking is usually possible on Heol-y-Felin.
