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

Once again we as a church are offering free 2017 calendars to friends in our community. Our calendar is compiled with local photos taken by members and friends of our church and seeks to show something of the beauty of God’s Creation as seen in Mid Wales. (See our sample photos below)
We are already distributing these calendars individually. If you would like a copy, contact us while supplies last.
Of course you are most welcome to visit us on a Sunday and find out what the Lord is doing through His Word here in the heart of Mid Wales.
Wishing one and all a merry Christmas and happy New Year in the name of our Saviour.
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.
Over the past few months members of our church have been collecting some of their best photos of our beloved Mid Wales to submit for this year’s calendar. We are delighted to offer this calendar for free to friends, family and many in our community.
We will be distributing these calendars throughout the area over the rest of this month. You are more than welcome to pick up a copy when visiting our church. It is our hope that this calendar will be a reminder to all not only of the beauty of our local area but also of the Lord who created all things.
Want to know more?
If you have received a calendar and would like to find out more about our church or about the Lord, take a moment and visit the rest of our website: read about us as a church, listen to one of our sermons, or feel free to contact us.
Of course we would be more than happy to meet with you in person on a Sunday, Wednesday or whenever our doors our open.
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.
