Possibly you already know this but Presbyterianism comes from the United Kingdom. Back then and all throughout these hundreds of years Presbyterian community in Wales has been extremely important. And just like hundreds of years ago, it's just as important today. Nowadays in Wales there are around one hundred thousand Protestants in Wales and about 30,000 of them belong to Presbyterian Church of Wales that was established after the revival of Methodists in Wales in the 18th century. The Presbyterian church of Wales has separated from the Church of England in 1811 while as an independent church it was established in 1823.
In case you don't know this, currently in Wales there are three Provinces that are divided into eighteen presbyteries with over 650 churches. Even though the core3 demographics of the Presbyterians revolve around Wales, there are historic ties with several cities in England, namely Liverpool, Manchester, London, Coventry and Birmingham.
For some of you the numbers may seem rather small. After all, there are over 3 million people in Wales, most of them Christian. But I say to you that every single one of the God's sheep are important to us. Thousands of people live beyond poverty, hundreds of boys and girls are denied not only education, but the most basic things needed for survival - clothes, food, etc. That's why it's not the numbers that matter most. It's the effort to make this world a little better for everyone else.
Therefore, I urge you, if you have means to contribute in the Presbyterian efforts in Wales, do not hesitate to do so as soon as you can. You can contact us, any of the congregations in Wales or the Presbyterian Church of Wales directly and ask about the upcoming activities or possible donations. Or not. If you prefer skipping this step, it's alright. You don't have to contact anyone to be good and loving Presbyterian. When you meet someone in need, help them in the way you can.
Actually, people underestimate how little effort is needed from any single individual in order to change the world and how much we can do in the shortest time to help our region, country and the whole world.
