Once more these important events for Wales’ Churches are almost upon us.
Again this year Cytûn will be co-ordinating Wales’ Churches’ Tent on behalf of the churches who are members of Cytûn as well as several other organisations. We extend a warm welcome to you to come and visit us at the tents, to enjoy the tea (and Welsh Cakes at the Eisteddfod), to join in our acts of worship, to listen to debates and discussions, to hear more about the work of the churches who are represented there or just to relax for a while.
Wales’ Churches’ tent will be situated at D299 on the Showground from Monday 23 July to Thursday 26 July. Each day will begin with brief prayers at 8am, there will be an act of worship at 11am each day and there will be other activities each day details of which will be displayed on Cytûn’s website – www.cytun.org.uk
Christian Aid will have a display within the tent, there will be a Quiet Corner organised by members of the Christian Centre for Rural Wales and, as always, there will be an opportunity for you to buy Christian books and resources from the Welsh Sunday Schools Council stall. There will also be activities for children and young people.
Keep a look-out for the Cytûn Chaplains as you wander the Showground – they’ll be glad to chat.
The National Eisteddfod will be in the Vale of Glamorgan from Saturday 4 August to Saturday 11 August and our stand number there will be A76; at both events, in order to find us, look out for our tall flags showing the words Wales’ Churches.
Here too we’ll have a range of activities and details of these will follow on the website.
Again at the Eisteddfod there will be Christian books and resources supplied by the Welsh Sunday School Council; the Bible Society and CAFOD will also be represented within the tent. There will be activities for children and young people.
We at Cytûn are hugely indebted to members of the churches, in the Vale of Glamorgan this year, for their enthusiasm, their co-operation, for all the planning and arranging but most importantly for being willing to share in the hard work which will be before them during the Eisteddfod week, the tent being one of the busiest on the Maes. We pray that it will be another successful year and that our Christian witness at both events will show the world that God is at work in our midst here in Wales.
