Eden Gate needs Trustees – could you be one of them?

Nightshelter is part of the work of Eden Gate, a Newport based charity with a Christian ethos. We are looking for two new Trustees who can commit to bi-monthly governance meetings. Our first requirement is for a treasurer and the second requirement is for someone able to offer pastoral care to staff, trustees, volunteers and guests alike. For more information on these roles or to apply, contact Marc Hepton 01633 243235 / [email protected]


Bridge Christian Counselling also has opportunities to serve God in our city

We are making good progress towards being able to hold evening counselling sessions in the house belonging to Lliswerry Baptist Church. Would anyone be available on a Wednesday or Thursday evening, to become one of our Receptionists – or Counsellors?

Please contact the Bridge on 01633 258729, or email [email protected] .


Freedom in Christ – A Strategy for Transforming Discipleship

A free, 2-hour event for Christian Leaders and for anyone responsible for discipleship in their church or group will be held at St Paul’s Church, 9 Bridge Street, Newport, NP20 4AL on Tuesday 27th February at 7.30pm. Refreshments will be available on arrival. The event offers an excellent opportunity to explore the Freedom In Christ approach to discipleship.


UK Director Rob Davies and other FIC team members will be there to introduce the new Freedom in Christ course, to explain the transformational approach at the heart of it, and to evaluate with you how the approach could work in your Church – one size doesn’t fit all.
