2014 - discussions began with All Saints. Penarth about the formation of a Ministry Area. We began working on collaborative projects, such as joint Palm Sunday services, moving on with monthly pulpit swaps and a shared Youth Worker. Clergy have joint Morning and Evening prayer.


July 2019- we officially became a Ministry Area, but remained as two separate parishes working together.


September 2020 - it was announced at the Diocesan Conference that we should work towards a full merger with All Saints to become Penarth Ministry Area by the end of 2021.


November 2020 - work has began on the outline structure and setting up a Transitional Leadership Group. There will be a lot to do to merge finances, administration, management of buildings etc. The work is made harder by the current pandemic situation and the vacant post of vicar at All Saints. We hope this will be filled soon with someone with the vision to move forward with the merger and bring a ‘can do’ attitude to following where God leads.


December 2020 - happily an appointment has been made for the post of Vicar at All Saints - the Rev Jimmy Young who will start work in March 2021.


Feb 2021 - First meeting of the Ministry Area Planning Group held. Merger date decided as 1st Jan 2022

Lists drawn up of financial tasks to be done.

Rev Jimmy Young will be licensed on 6th March 2021 by Zoom.
