Union of Welsh Independents (UWI) will be observing the ninth “Recovery Sunday” on 25 Oct, a day set aside to encourage churches to think about those suffering from various addictions, to learn more about their situation, their needs and the help offered by centres such as the Living Room, CAIS and Adferiad Recovery. Churches may also take practical action such as making a financial contribution to the work, as they mull over how addiction to alcohol, drugs, food, sex, pornography, gambling and so on is a prison for so many people today.

A service has been prepared by Elin Maher based on meditation on our surroundings and how we can be used in this world. It is available in English and Welsh for the churches’ usage, and can be downloaded here: https://archive.cwmission.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Recovery_Sunday_2020_English.pdf or at www.cynnal.wales
