It’s our pleasure to share with you a new mission resource produced especially for St David’s Day. The Baptist Union of Wales have worked with Hope Together to publish a mini-magazine which churches can use in their communities on St David’s Day or in the run-up to our patron saint’s day.
Hope is a movement that encourages churches to reach out to their community by linking in with annual festivals or celebrations. This bilingual magazine is for St David’s Day and is unique to Wales (Welsh and English back-to-back) which points people towards the Christian faith. The magazine contains a feature on BBC Radio Wales DJ Mal Pope from Swansea, recipe for Welshcakes, and makes a link from St David’s Day to the Easter message (PDF of the magazine can be downloaded below). There is also a website address on the leaflet which will allow people to seek more information about the Christian faith if they wish to.
Also you can download an ideas sheet for churches containing ideas on how to use the mini-mag e.g. to include an invitation to the church Easter service in the mini-mag and so on – hopefully it will trigger some imaginative thinking about how to best use the mini-mag in your community.
If you have any questions or would like to order copies of the magazine for your church an order form can be downloaded by following the link below which you can send to firstname.lastname@example.org
We would be grateful to receive your orders by February 12th so that we have enough time to distribute them before March 1st.
