New 15-minute church service to accommodate ‘busy working lives’

by Tola Mbakwe

A Swansea church has come up with an innovative approach to cater to the bustling schedules of modern life.

St David's in Penllergaer is set to offer a brief respite with the introduction of a 15-minute weekday service, starting next month.

The aim is for “15 Minute Church on Mondays” to be a welcoming space for individuals to pause, pray, and reflect amidst their hectic routines.

Rev John Gillibrand said:  "We are so aware as a ministry area of people’s busy working lives and they need to maintain a good work-life balance. 15 Minute Church is here to help just do that.

“We are open to all, not just existing church members and will always offer an unconditional welcome.

"Come and join us each week for 15 minutes of quiet, prayer, and reflection." 

The services are scheduled to start at 4.45pm on Mondays, starting from 22nd April.

In an effort to be accommodating and flexible, the church also said that anyone or any group needing a different time slot are welcome to reach out.

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
