Fancy a pray and a pint – come to Merthyr

The Western Mail report that a chapel in Merthyr is proving pints to men if they come and pray.

Ministers Tony Graham and Gareth Lloyd are bringing a radical approach to spreading the gospel to Hope Chapel in Pontmorlais.

“It’s great to be part of something here. We’re putting sofas and bar stools in the basement to have a relaxing evening and learn what the Bible’s about.

“Drinking isn’t a sin, but people from other generations think of it as so because of alcohol abuse and the bad consequences that can come of it.

“Forty or 50 guys will be here, studying the bible with a pint of beer in their hand.”

I hope they have a licence!
