Probably a lot of patience, time and expert engineering research.
This is exactly what University of Bristol’s professor Stuart Burgess had to use when helping to design Team GB’s 2016 track cycling bike, and thankfully all that research paid off in a very successful Olympic games for Team GB in Rio 2016.
Stuart Burgess’s revolutionary design not only caught the attention of our nation but was recognised by the Royal Society in last year’s Summer Science Exhibition – See the video below.
We are delighted to announce that Stuart Burgess will be coming, with a prototype of bike to Llandrindod Wells to talk about his designing work, but…
…that’s not all he will be discussing.
What Does Bike Design Teach About the Christian Faith?
Along with being an experienced university professor and researcher, Stuart is also a Christian and sees God’s design in everything he does.
Stuart will be sharing as part of his presentation how this revolutionary bike design impacted his Christian faith and how God’s design and God’s love are evident to all.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions, meet with Stuart and have a cup of tea. So do make plans to come along.
Saturday, 21 July – 3pm
Meet the designer – See the bike – Hear about his faith

In keeping with our town’s Victorian Festival, our church is hosting a evening talk where we will consider the renowned Victorian scientist Michael Faraday as well as others who had to grapple with this ever relevant question:
Are science and Christianity friends or foes?
Join us as Prof Stephen Taylor a leading modern scientist from the University of Liverpool speaks about Faraday’s life and addresses whether modern science and the Christian faith are really at odds with one another after all. Prof Taylor’s talk will include a short video presentation as well as (time permitting) a live demonstration of an experiment that made Faraday famous. There will also be time for questions and answers as well as a cup of tea for all to enjoy.
The blossoming time of spring is no doubt a joy to all, but the beauty of nature is not just to be appreciated but to be learned from.
In our recent Wednesday night Bible study series examining Hebrews chapter 11, we considered how nature points to its Creator and how faith in Biblical Creationism far outweighs faith in evolutionary beliefs.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. – Heb 11:3
Visit With Us
You are welcome to visit with us any Wednesday evening for our time of Bible study and prayer. Currently we are examining Hebrews chapter 11 and the legacy of faith in Old Testament individuals that encourages and challenges our faith today.
Our church has put together a 2015 calender using pictures taken by church members in and around Llandrindod Wells. We did this in time for Christmas and were able to distribute many to family and friends in our community and beyond.
Getting yourself a copy
We still have a number left that we’d love to give away to those in our community. You can pick up your free copy if you visit the Spar on the corner of Station Crescent and Middleton Street in Llandrindod Wells; this is only while supplies last. Of course we are keeping a number of remaining copies at our church for visitors to take any time before or after one of our services.
We hope these calendars are a blessing, and of course we warmly welcome you to any of our services in 2015.
As the days get shorter and the weather gets cooler, we’d like to invite you to our earlier Sunday evening services. Starting in November we will be meeting at 5pm, as opposed to 6pm, for our usual Sunday evening services.
This is a small change, but it helps for those who have to travel and may be an added blessing to those with children. Please mark down this time and join us for uplifting worship, Biblical preaching and warm fellowship.
