We complete our celebrations of the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with a rally on Saturday 1st June at Headquarters. It will be 60 years exactly since the Coronation on the following day. The programme of the day is included in this posting – come and enjoy the fellowship and the lectures as we give thanks for the continuity of the Crown in our nation.


An exciting new publication due for release in the summer entitled Maelgwn of Llandaff and Joseph of Arimathea. As the back cover says: “It will come as a considerable surprise to many to consider the evidence that the grave of Joseph of Arimathea – who arrived in South Wales in AD 35-37 – still exists in Cardiff. The evidence of the grave being on an island surrounded by water on all sides as described by the Prince Maelgwn of Llandaff is very solid indeed.

When the knowledge of the immense Christian heritage of South Wales is fully appreciated it will stir a very powerful interest in the heritage of the early British Church of South Wales and in the kings who ruled Britain in defiance of the Roman occupation.”
