The Friends is administered by its Executive Committee. The committee has been operating by email during the closure.


The last Autumn Luncheon 2019 took place on 17th November at the New House Hotel, Thornhill, Cardiff. Because of coronavirus restrictions, no Autumn Luncheons have been arranged for 2020, 2021 or 2022. It is hoped that if possible a luncheon can be held in the spring of 2023.


Because of coronavirus there will be no Annual Festival of the Friends in 2022. A short formal Annual General Meeting will take place on Sunday 9th October at St John’s church after morning service. This year there is no restriction on numbers attending. Sanitising is available on entering the church.

No dates or events have been scheduled yet for 2022. It is felt that it is too soon yet, given the coronavirus situation, to restart having gatherings of members. The committee will be looking at possibilities for 2023, and if the situation is improved will see what can be arranged.
After its temporary closure in March 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak. the church reopened reopened for Sunday worship at Easter 2021 and has remained open for Sunday worship ever since. From about the middle of 2022, with the lifting of restrictions, it has gradually been extending its opening times on weekdays for private prayer and visitors, but the full range of weekday worship and activities is still not restored.
