Fr. Philip Leyshon has accepted Bishop June’s invitation to become the Ministry Area Leader for the Rhondda Deanery. His role will be to lead and support the Rhondda Deanery’s parish, as part of a Ministry Area Leadership Team of clergy and lay ministers, as we move forward into the formation of a ministry area. We congratulate him on this appointment.

As we begin this process I am sure we will all support Father Philip and the other priests in the area. Working with them and parishioners throughout the valley, and trusting in our Heavenly Father, we now embark on this new venture which, hopefully, will bring us closer as the Anglican community of the Rhondda.



We are deeply grateful to those who give to our churches regularly whether through free will offering envelopes or through bank transfers..

It is now even easier to give regularly to your local church. With church buildings closed income is drastically reduced and yet we continue to support the spiritual needs of local communities as well as supporting the most vulnerable in society.

When life returns to normal we will continue to play a vital part in the life of our communities.
