Meet Delyth Liddell

Rev Delyth Liddell

Name:
Revd Delyth Liddell

Position / Job Title:
Methodist Chaplain at Cardiff University

Responsibilities:
As a part of the Chaplaincy team, I’m based at The Chaplaincy at 61 Park Place with my Anglican colleague Trystan Hughes and together we support students from a variety of Christian traditions, beliefs and backgrounds, along with many students who practice other religions or indeed have no particular faith at all.  I believe passionately that Chaplaincy is a place for welcome to everyone, as an open and inclusive space, and I have a particular interest in supporting overseas students and LGBTplus students and the gay community.  I attend Cathays Methodist Church, which is part of the Cardiff Circuit and I support the Cardiff Methodist Students in their efforts.

Experience:
I’ve been a church minister since 2003, after doing my theology degree and ministry training here at Cardiff.  My ministry has been throughout South Wales, and I am well known and have ministered in churches from the border (Chepstow and Monmouth) through to Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan.  I was appointed the Methodist Chaplain to Cardiff University in 2010 and I also have an active role in ecumenism, serving on the Commission for Covenanted Churches in Wales.

Areas of Interest:
I am undertaking an MTh in Practical Theology with a particular focus on church in today’s world - mission within a secular environment.  I’ve recently started jogging and my goal is to run a half-marathon this year!  I love hanging out and playing volleyball on the beach at Barry Island (even in the winter!) and I play the flute with Cardiff Concert Orchestra.  My favourite activity though, is eating and drinking with friends and family!
