The Parish of Llwynderw
Relatively speaking, the Parish of Llwynderw is a young grouping within the Diocese of Swansea & Brecon. It was established in 1974, with two churches that were previously members of the then larger Parish of Oystermouth: Holy Cross and Clyne Chapel. Its first Incumbent was a young Anthony Pierce, who went on to be Consecrated in 1999 as the eighth Bishop of the Diocese. Throughout its short existence, Llwynderw has continually striven to spread the Gospel throughout the communities that it serves in partnership with other Christians in the area. It is a forward-looking Parish with God at the heart of its life.
A marriage service, wherever it is held, is a public declaration of your love and commitment for each other. When you choose to get married in church, there is an added dimension – you are also declaring your love and commitment to God and inviting Him to bless your marriage and be part of your relationship. Including God in your marriage doesn't mean that you will avoid all the usual ups and downs, but you will know that you can look to God for help and guidance and that His love will sustain you. You will also have the support and encouragement of the Christian Church family.
In baptism, you as parents are: thanking God for his gift of life, making a decision to start your child on the journey of faith and asking for the Church's support. For your child, baptism marks the start of a journey of faith, which involves turning away from all that is evil, turning towards Christ and becoming a member of the local and worldwide Christian family. Baptism is a 'sacrament' a visible sign of God's love. In baptism, we are thanking God for his gift of life and publicly acknowledging his love. We are acknowledging that we all need to turn away from selfishness and evil and to accept God's offer of a new start.
