The Bible Learning Centre in Swansea needs help

Help needed urgently.

Due to the success of The Bible Learning Centre in Swansea, the steering group has decided to continue the project for a further three months (August – October 2016).

They need more volunteers to help staff the centre. Full training is given, and if anyone wishes to stay in the Swansea area (Dinas a Sir Abertawe) to assist with a few shifts, whilst visiting the beautiful Gower (Gŵyr) beaches, accommodation can be provided.

Worms Head, on the south coast of the Gower Peninsula, Glamorgan, Wales. A.J. Huxley

Gower is mainly a plateau, 150–450 feet (45–140 metres) high, into which many short streams have incised narrow, steep-sided valleys. Above the rolling plateau surfaces are some ridges, such as that from Penclawdd to Swansea, across the neck of the peninsula, and the Cefn Bryn ridge in the west. The picturesque south coast has a succession of limestone cliffs and coves that attract tourists. The Mumbles, a popular resort area at Oystermouth, takes its name from the French mamelles (“breasts”), a reference to the two small islands off the coast. Farther west are large stretches of sand dunes, such as Llangennith and Whitford Burrows. The latter, together with parts of the south coast cliffs, is now in the care of the National Trust. The north coast, which bounds the Burry Inlet of Carmarthen Bay, is marshy and attracts fewer visitors. {Encyclopaedia Britannica Gower-peninsula}

Wales’ second largest city after Cardiff and the twenty-fifth largest city in the UK, located at the mouth of the river Tawe (Abertawe) reflects post-Roman Viking activity, but there is no evidence of settlement until the site was developed as a castle borough by Henry de Beaumont, the first Norman lord of Gower. It is a metallurgical centre with sheet-metal mills, foundries, and smelting works. Other industries are engineering, shipbuilding, and oil refining (at the suburb Llandarcy).

The whole area has a lot to offer on historical as well as environmental interest. This might especially appeal to students.

The shifts are from 9.30 a.m. – 1.30 p.m. and from 1.30 – 4.30 p.m. Even if you can only offer to do one shift – your help is needed. It’s an easy job, basically just manning the till and keeping the shelves stocked. The ability to deliver seminars is not necessary, and if anyone asks, difficult questions, there is always someone else to whom to refer them.

We would also appeal to South Wales ecclesias for further support.
