The October Mission was known as 'Coming Home' and took place over a week. The dates were Sunday 17th October through to Sunday 24th October. The idea was that we collected a group of willing volunteers, from the Church, the Diocese and the Mission Area, together with people from outside who would join us for a concentrated plan to visit and inform people of what actually goes on at S. Bridget's and how we are committed to the people of God and the local community. On the Sunday, there was a guest preacher and during the week both the Church and the Hall was used for activities for individuals, families and young people. There would also be social icebreakers and the opportunity to share food and fellowship. Of course, all this was rather dependant upon the Government and the Church in Wales regulations due to the Covid Pandemic situation. Please pray for this initiative and for all who took part, those who would engage with us and that the power of the Holy Spirit would bring everyone 'home'. Our work still continues going forward to bring individuals and families into our Church family. We would still like to invite you and your family to be a part of our family at St Bridget’s Parish Church
