Mairwen Large has been licensed as a reader since 2009 and was appointed to work 16 hours a week as a Children and Families Worker in September 2016. She also works 2 days a week as a primary school teacher. She is married to Simon, the church’s IT bod and has two children at University. A fluent Welsh-speaking Cardiffian, she met Simon when they were called to the Lee Abbey Community.
She loves to tell stories – be it the story of God at work in the Bible or the story of God at work in out lives today; whether the audience is a congregation in church or a group of five year olds. She started her ministry at St Ed’s about 18 years ago as a keyboard player /worship leader and has gradually worked through the roles, to the place she never thought that she was called – to work with young children and families.
Mairwen’s CFW work is very varied. Although we have few children on a Sunday morning there is always provision for them at the 10.45 service, a monthly Messy Church which we call Family@4, a Monday Morning Toddler group, Open the Book school assembly on Tuesday and an array of groups who come to church at regular intervals in the calendar.
