• Many budgets and resources in schools, charities and town services have been cut and are often very tight. Wanting to help, we are starting a 12 month mission to LOVE NEWTOWN.

    Every month during 2018 a life group from the Church will volunteer a Saturday to support the community giving their time to help in a variety of ways. Each months task and services are listed in more details below:- 

    January

    Meadow View One Life Group spent Saturday the 27th of January building a shed and clearing all areas of the school for the children of Ysgol Cedewain. All of the gardens had become overgrown over the winter and were in need of much love and attention along with a wendy house roof needing re-felting.
