On Friday 14th August, the First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford, visited St. Thomas’ Church in Trethomas which has been the headquarters of the BMMR Parish Trust CARE Project since March.
Dear Parishioners, After a lot of planning and consideration, I’m very pleased to tell you that St. Michael’s Church in Michaelston-y-Fedw will be open for Sunday worship, commencing on Sunday 26th July. This communication details what you need to know. Please read all the information carefully.
Statistics released today by the BMMR Parish Trust CARE Project for May indicate that the level of need in the community has seen an overall increase on the previous month.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Project Senior Leadership Team, I am delighted to announce that the CARE Project has received a very kind and generous grant of £43,000 from the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) and the Welsh Government.
Over the last week, the CARE Project has made local and national news, as over 100 volunteers galvanise themselves to join the response effort in tackling the ongoing effects of the Coronavirus Outbreak.
It is now Day 5 of the CARE Project – the initiative set up by the Bedwas, Machen, Michaelston-y-Fedw & Rudry Parish Trust (i.e the Local Church) to help those in the greatest need during the Coronavirus Outbreak. The CARE Project has been providing services to anyone in our community who is self-isolating, alone, elderly/frail,.
On Monday 23rd March, the British Government announced new measures to help tackle the spread of COVID-19. National restrictions have been put in place which meant that isolation is now non-optional for the citizens of the United Kingdom. Some have felt that the new guidelines have been too vague in detailing who is and who.
Today, the British Government have put measures in place which will see a more robust approach to self-isolation taking place. You can read the full scope of measures here.
After a strange week and a lot of work behind the scenes, we have some important announcements to make about how your local church will be helping our communities here during the Coronavirus Outbreak.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we have important announcements to make regarding our provision of events and services, the ongoing care of our congregations and what we are planning to do to help our communities.
