'Life in the Diocese' photography competition


The Diocese have just launched a new competition, to inspire people to capture life in our Diocese on camera. The competition will mark our 95th anniversary as a Diocese and is a chance for everybody to capture their local area and Church life.


There are five categories for the competition:

• Christian Life

• Worship

• Faith in action

• Our place in creation

• Sacred heritage


Entrants are welcome to interpret these categories as they wish. There will also be a competition for under 14s, with the same categories. Closing date for entries is Wednesday 31 August. Winners will be announced at the Diocesan Conference in October, and we are hosting an exhibition of photographs in Newport Cathedral.


Full details of the competition are on the website here.


So, what better time to capture your local Church life on camera!


The Diocesan Prayer


God, and Father of all

You have planted the Good News

of your love in the faith communities

of our Diocese.


By your Spirit at work in us,

Grant us to grow strong in Christ so that our lives

of devotion and service may reveal to your world

the power of your love,

which is able to do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine;


Through Jesus Christ our Lord
