The South Wales/De Cymru group is a very friendly and welcoming group, and is open to LGBT people and their friends. We have members from Carmarthenshire in the west to Monmouthshire in the east. New people are always welcome to attend regardless of age, race, gender, orientation or any religious belief or none. You are guaranteed to find a warm welcome in the hillsides!
When and where do we meet? We usually meet on a weekday and in various venues across SE Wales. Variations may occur for special events or to adjust for holidays. Unless otherwise advertised, meetings always start at 19:30 with a short period of devotions followed by a speaker, discussion or event. Meetings end with some social time over a hot drink and snacks.
How much does it cost? We do not charge a membership fee for the local group. We just ask for a suggested minimum donation of £1 at each meeting you attend to cover our costs, but it is not compulsory. If you would like to join national LGCM, you can do so using the ‘Membership’ tab above.
