On Thursday 29th January the Bishop began his visit to Wales with a meal with the wardens of the St Asaph House Group near Swansea. On Friday 30th January Bishop Mead spent an extremely happy evening with Fr Miles Maylor, priest in charge of the ACC Fellowship of St Deiniol and St Asaph / Cymdeithas Saint Deiniol ac Asaph, Pembrokeshire, Wales.

He also met with 2 local Free Church Pastors (and the wife of one) Fr Maylor had invited to meet the Bishop. One of the ministers had presented our Mission with the chalice they use. Good conversation, meaningful fellowship and moving prayer followed. The bishop was grateful for their support of Fr Miles and our ACC work. Bishop Mead commenting on this said “… This is truly wonderful – may they be blessed and continue to be a blessing to the people committed to their charge. They are a welcome antidote to the open hostility we have encountered from other local Christian leaders, who should know better!”
