Mainland Premier League

The Mainland Premier League is a league competition run by Mainland Football for association football clubs located in the northern half of the South Island, New Zealand. It is regarded by the New Zealand footballing community as the strongest football league in the South Island of New Zealand and features current and former ASB Premiership players; the competition runs between March and August each year, consists of seven teams based in Christchurch, one team in Nelson. There are 21 rounds; the winner of the league qualifies for the South Island Championship, a one-off game against the winner of the FootballSouth Premier League, hosted by the two federations in alternate years. By statute, the winners of the Canterbury Championship League, Nelson Bays region's Division One League play in a home and away play-off, with the winner of the tie receiving promotion to the Premier League. However, due to potential extra costs including travel, the winner of the Nelson Bay's Division One title forgoes the right to a play-off.

This means that the winner of the Canterbury Championship League title is promoted to the Premier League. In 2012, Woolston Technical and Cashmere Wanderers were merged into Cashmere Technical, they replaced the Woolston side that had finished 6th in the 2011 competition. Merged teams Coastal Spirit, FC Twenty 11 entered the Premier League through promotion from the Division One competition. In the 2012 season, Christchurch United were relegated from the league after a season-long relegation battle with FC Twenty 11. Nomads United, who won the Division One title, have been promoted back up to the Premier League. Coastal Spirit completed a switch of home ground for the 2013 season from Linfield Park to Cuthberts Green. However, in 2014 they were forced to move back to Linfield because Cuthberts was deemed not up to be up to Premier League standard by Mainland Football. Universities were forced to play their home games away from Ilam fields for the same reason; the 2013 season was one of the closest competitions in recent memory.

Ferrymead Bays set the pace early on, but soon fell away in the middle of the season after 4–0 home defeat to Nelson Suburbs in a top of the table clash. After several strong title challenges by the top four teams Cashmere Technical emerged victorious, succumbing to only two losses in the league, 3 in a season that saw them win the treble which included the South Island Championship, the Chatham Cup. FC Twenty 11 were relegated to the Mainland Division One Competition, with the University of Canterbury replacing them after securing the Mainland Division One title; the 2014 season began with Nelson Suburbs being beaten 4-1 at home by the newly promoted Universities. Both Cashmere Technical and Western continued their strong form from the 2013 season. Cashmere were unbeaten for the first 10 games until an 11th round 1-0 defeat to Nelson Suburbs on 31 May; this was Cashmere's first defeat since 1 June 2013. Tech rebounded and secured their second straight title, with two games to spare. In the final round, University managed a 6-2 win over Coastal, enough to secure their 2015 MPL status through goal difference.

Their closest rivals, only needed to win, but could only muster a 2-2 draw with Nelson. In Division One, Christchurch United secured promotion to the 2015 MPL after a close battle with Selwyn. For Cashmere, it was another successful season where they retained the South Island Championship and won the Chatham Cup; the English Cup is a knock-out competition, sponsored by Stadium Cars, features all clubs within the Mainland Football Federation. All games are played mid-week at the neutral venue of English Park. Western AFC are the current holders of the trophy after defeating Cashmere Technical 1-0; the 2015 English Cup commences on Tuesday 12 May with Ferrymead Bays facing Cashmere Technical.

Tredegarville Baptist Church

Tredegarville Baptist Church is a Baptist chapel in the suburb of Roath, Cardiff. It was established to reach Roman Catholics with the Gospel and although this remains a part of their ministry, it was formed as an offshoot of Bethany chapel, located in Cardiff City Centre. The minister of Bethany, Alfred Tilly, together with 111 of his parishioners, left to found the new cause, they began in rooms in City Road in 1860. Work commenced the following year on a permanent place of worship; the site was donated by Lord Tredegar himself, said to have insisted that the church be cruciform in design. A schoolroom was opened on 3 December 1861, with the chapel itself following in 1862; the limestone used to build the church was once believed to have come from Italy, but is more to have hailed from Galway as ballast in coal ships. In its earlier years, the church had two small pinnacles on its roof, but these have since been removed. In addition to the gift of the and from Lord Tredegar, the church was generously supported by the wealthy Cory family.

Of an evangelical bent, it founded several missions elsewhere in Cardiff and engaged in missionary work abroad. William Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army gave his first worship service in Cardiff at the church in 1863 because of Tredegarville's huge effort in establishing the cause; the missionary to China Timothy Richards was very grateful to Tredegarville for its financial support in his ministry. Tredegarville's missionary to the Congo Henry Richards is recognised today as one of the greatest Baptist missionaries of America when it adopted the David Livingstone mission as its own. Grade II Listed since 1999, the church has a present fellowship of around 100. Missionary work is still a feature of its activities, with operations in evangelising Muslims in Roath, a suburb with a diverse ethnic makeup, in 2013, the church's congregation had members from 84 different nations
