Non-Conformist Christians meet with Buddhists

Aro Ling Buddhist Centre in Cardiff was proud to welcome a group of twelve non-conformist Christians on March 12th. The meeting came about because I sat next to their minister at the Muslim Council of Wales dinner. We chatted and he expressed a wish to visit the centre and hear about Buddhism.

It was a delightful evening. They asked myself and Ngakpa ’ö-Dzin splendid questions, and we had a lively and interesting dialogue. Eglwys Minny Street and Aro Ling Buddhist Centre intend to continue their connection, and hopefully we will be able to visit their chapel soon.

Mae cynulleidfa o Eglwys Minny Street siarad Cymraeg. Do ni ddim yn gallu siarad â nhw am Fwdïaeth yn Gymraeg anffodus, ond ohonom ni’n gallu eu croesawu yn Gymraeg.

The congregation of Minny Street Church speak Welsh. We were not able to talk to them about Buddhism in Welsh unfortunately, but we were able to welcome them in Welsh.

According to Wikipedia, non-conformist Christians are Protestants who would not conform to the Act of Unity in 1662. Non-conformity is a strong movement in Wales and may include Presbyterians, Congregationalist, Baptists, Methodists, Unitarians, Quakers, Plymouth Brethren, English Morovians and The Salvation Army.
