The People’s Church
The People’s Church / Eglwys y Bobl is a bilingual book of meditations and study questions for every Sunday of the year. It can be used ‘off the shelf’ instead of the sermon slot to help congregations think about the meaning of a passage and how it relates to our lives. Each meditation was written by a tutor, student or staff member at St Padarn’s and was prepared in collaboration between St Padarn's and Cyngor Ysgolion Sul (the Sunday School Council). It was written as a response from the dioceses that churches were looking for resources to help them to sustain services in rural areas without clergy or licensed Readers, and also in ministry and mission areas who are holding Welsh or bilingual services as part of their overall provision. The resource can also be used with housegroups or bible study groups. Our tutors have also written a very comprehensive list of definitions of words which come up in the readings this coming year to accompany the discussion questions and meditations.
