    CIRCUIT SAFEGUARDING UPDATE (18/04/19):
    It is has been necessary to cancel the following 3 dates that were originally planned for Safeguarding Training at Tredegar Methodist Church:
    Fri. 10th May / Fri. 7th June / Sat. 8th June 2019.

    However, it is still our intention to hold a safeguarding training session at Tredegar Methodist Church on Sat. 11th May 2019 from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

    As previously requested, can those intending to attend the training session please email me direct (ctfhmc@btinternet.com) so I can register your details (name & church where you hold your membership).

    We will at some point arrange another date for Tredegar, and we are currently in process of booking 2 dates for Blackwood & a further date for Castle St. (hopefully all in Autumn 2019).
