Good neighbours

Can you spare time when it is convenient to you, to support those in your community who need your help?  

Good Neighbours in North Cardiff is a voluntary organisation providing support to those who find life very challenging. They help clients who may have mobility or sight problems, some are housebound, others have little or no family support, some may be lonely others have memory problems or special needs. The organisation covers Llanishen, Thornhill, Old Lisvane, Heath, Roath Park, Lakeside, West Cyncoed and parts of Penylan.

Good Neighbours - helping a client with transport by car

Most of the volunteers are drivers, others prefer to offer companionship or maybe escort a client on a visit to outpatients. Some choose a regular job, others need the freedom to choose times to suit themselves.

You choose what you want to do, how often and when.

The Synod prayer

Dear friends and parishioners

This is the official Synod prayer. Today marks the beginning of the Synod across the world and so it will be used at all Masses in our deanery this weekend. Next week we will explain how our deanery will open up the Synod process to everyone.

We stand before You, Holy Spirit, as we gather together in Your name.

With You alone to guide us, make Yourself at home in our hearts;

Teach us the way we must go and how we are to pursue it.

We are weak and sinful; do not let us promote disorder.

Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path nor partiality influence our actions.

Let us find in You our unity so that we may journey together to eternal life,

and not stray from the way of truth and what is right.

All this we ask of You, who are at work in every place and time,
in the communion of the Father and the Son, forever and ever,


The Synod

Dear friends and parishioners

Pope Francis launches the Synod process for the worldwide Church this weekend in Rome. Archbishop Stack has appointed Madeleine Walter of St Teilo’s as coordinator for the diocese, and the clergy of Cardiff deanery meet on Thursday to plan the way ahead for the city and area to involve the maximum number of people.

The word Synod comes from Greek and means “Walking Together” or “The Way Together”, and the theme for this Synod is ‘For a synodal Church: communion, participation and Mission’.
