Well, this is where it all begins. The house is found, a school is not, but will be organised soon, the college is waiting for arrival…. and still we have to sell our house and move.

So much to do and so little time, I should also be going to Iona and Camas this summer, it seems there are not enough weeks in the year, or that they are all in the same few months at any rate!
Well this is a beginning and hopefully it will become something worth reading eventually.

A Rocha

A Rocha is a Christian nature conservation organisation, our name coming from the Portuguese for “the Rock,” as the first initiative was a field study centre in Portugal. A Rocha is now a family of projects working in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, North and South America, Asia and Australasia. A Rocha projects are frequently cross-cultural in character, and share a community emphasis, with a focus on science and research, practical conservation and environmental education.

The Cardiff Bay Lightship

In 1988 the churches in Cardiff were called together by the Cardiff Bay Development Corporation to discuss the role of Christianity in the bay area. The churches were seen as playing an important part in the community and should be involved at the very hub of the new developments. To this end Helwick LV14 was purchased and restoration begun to create a floating Christian Centre.

The Lightship provides a bold central focus for the Churches of Wales and will be home to a centre for counselling, worship, exhibitions, meetings, a book shop, refreshment area and the cabins will be used for small residential stays, especially designed for youth groups.
