What happens when people worship?

by Colin Dexter

Several potentially dangerous gatherings have broken up and dissipated as worship was released among the unruly participants. Coming in a spirit of intercession, worshippers began to sing and position themselves between the protesting crowd and the Highway Patrol forming a protective line. Within minutes, the riotous crowd deflated and dispersed as, “This isn’t fun anymore.” and “I’m going home.” were heard. Others in the crowd joined the worship, with several coming to Christ.

Christmas through the keyhole -Moriah Baptist Church

by Colin Dexter

News From Moriah

This Christmas we are really pleased to be running an interactive, multi-sensory trail called Christmas Through the Keyhole.  Between 1st-5th December it is open to all the local primary schools in Risca and then on Saturday 6th December we will make it available to the public.

The trail allows you to explore this key Christian festival in a whole new way by immersing yourself in the story. You are invited to look through the keyhole into the homes of the nativity characters and collect clues about the character who lives there. By collecting the clues, you gather information about each character and gradually build a picture of how each one became involved in this amazing series of events surrounding a tiny baby.

If you would like to bring some pupils to the trail, please complete the attached booking form indicating your first, second and third choice of time slots. The trail takes about 1 hour 15 minutes to complete and each class needs to be accompanied by one adult for every 10 pupils. Please be aware that there will be stairs to negotiate on the trail. Christmas is always exciting but helping people to explore the real story is makes it even more exciting.

Christians against poverty (CAP)

by Colin Dexter


We are passionate about lifting people out of debt and poverty through our award winning debt help service and money management course, the CAP Money Course. We started in 1996 when John Kirkby gave up his successful career in consumer finance to help people out of misery and poverty associated with unmanageable debt. We have grown into a national charity with a vision to have a CAP Debt centre, opened in partnership with a local church, in every town and city across the UK.
