New group convenor takes over in Cardiff
The Cardiff group is an active PCN linked meeting, which gathers twice a month just north of the M4.
The new convenor is Andy Long who describes himself as a Bass playing, Prog Rocking, God bothering, train driving Welshman.
Andy Long writes:
The Cardiff group meets twice a month in a church in Pontprennau. There are usually around 8-10 of us at the meeting which is centred around a visiting speaker, video presentation or discussion idea.
It’s been a refreshing and thought provoking time for me at the group. I don’t always agree with the ideas that come out of it, but I think that’s kind of the point, all the members have come to progressive thought via a different path. In my own church I’m a raging liberal with funny ideas, whilst at PCN I feel more like a conservative trying to hold on to the reins.
At the start off 2017 I will be taking over as the convenor of the group, which sounds very grand, but really just means that I will be facilitating the evenings and booking speakers.
I’ve lined up a few interesting speakers already, here are some of the forthcoming evenings
17th January – Fair Trade In Wales: Aled Pickard and John Mathias
21st February – Some Christians are trans, what does that mean?: Elaine Sommers
21st March – The Dategrove Group: John Henson
Other speakers have yet to confirm topics and I have a few video evenings lined up too.
The group meets at 7:30pm on the first and third Tuesday of each month at Pontprennau Community Church. If you would like to come or want to be added to the mailing list please email me. For more details about our group please see our page on this website.
