18 – 21 July sees the 2016 Royal Welsh Show in Builth Wells. During this week the Showground Chaplaincy service will offer a listening ear to the farming community and over 200,000 visitors who are expected to attend the show. Over the past 7 years since it’s formal creation the Chaplaincy service has grown to cover over 40 events on the Showground during the year with a team of 25 registered Chaplains and this week is still the highlight of that calendar.
Show week will also see thousands of free cups of tea served in the Cytûn Tent (D294) as a safe place to rest and chat on this busy site is offered along with regular prayer, worship and discussion sessions amongst the isles of trade stands on the Showground.
Those coming to the Showground, please look out for the Chaplains in their maroon Hi-Vis Jackets and pop in to the Churches’ Tent to say hello. Alternatively you can follow us on Twitter – @ChaplaincyTeam, join the group on Facebook –http://bit.ly/ChurchesRWAS or simply pray for the team and their ministry from the Showground this week and throughout the year.
