The Parish of Radyr
Welcome to the Parish of Radyr website
The churches of Christ Church in Radyr and St John The Baptist in Danescourt are open to everyone in the community and beyond. Our congregations are inclusive, all age and flourishing. We would love to welcome you to our socially distanced services or activities.
Please explore this website using the other menus. Clergy contact details are given below.
Please look at our Parish Newsletter for details of all current and upcoming services and events.
Coronavirus update. We are delighted to say that our churches are open for public worship including baptisms, weddings and funerals (with some restrictions on numbers).
Services are being held at the usual times:
Christ Church: Sunday at 08:00 & 11:00 (this service will normally be live streamed on our YouTube channel – see below), and Wednesday at 09:30.
St John’s: Sunday at 09:15 & 18:00, and Thursday at 11:00.
FORMAT OF SERVICES
Our services are still governed by Coronavirus regulations. Our buildings have been reorganised internally to ensure Social Distancing but we hope we can accommodate everyone. We are following strict Church in Wales hygiene and distancing guidelines to ensure the safety of every worshipper. On arrival at church you will be asked to register your attendance (for tracing if necessary) and sanitise your hands. Please use the QR Code if you have the App on your phone. You will be seated by our welcome team who will ensure you sit at least 2 metres from others.
The sacrament of Holy Communion will be shared in one kind only (bread); this will be distributed where you are seated to keep contact to an absolute minimum. We are unable to sing hymns but there will be music at some services. We will be ringing the bells when we can. Please follow the stewards instructions and please do not congregate just outside the church at the end of the services.
FACE COVERINGS – all 11 and over congregation members must wear a face covering at all church services within the building at all times.
CAMERA SYSTEM IN CHRIST CHURCH
Christ Church now has a camera system installed which means it is possible for us to live-stream and record services. Camera angles have been chosen specifically to safeguard your privacy but your image may be captured at various times. If this is a problem, please speak to the stewards on arrival who can then place you in a suitable position in the church.

(Their day off is usually Friday but may be called at any time in extremis).
We recognise that the past months have been difficult for many people – some of us have faced loss, loneliness and the impact of the Covid-19 lockdown has taken its toll emotionally, socially and financially on many of us.
