We hope that you will find it useful to find out about our church in Brynamman.
We are an open evangelical church that welcomes all traditions and is part of the Anglican Church in Wales within the Diocese of St David's.
In normal circumstances services are held in church every week on Sundays.
We have an active Sunday School, they are an all age worship group, who meet at the same time as the service. (See our Sunday school page for more information.)
We also meet during the week for prayer, bible teaching and social events.
❗⛔Unfortunately neither the church or the church hall will open, for the foreseeable future.
Sunday School is carrying on via Zoom.
(See their tab for the latest information)
We have set up a virtual fellowship meeting via Zoom. (See Zoom fellowship tab.)

Today we had a meeting with Suzy Bale with regards to the re opening of the Church. Unfortunately there is a lot of work to be done to get the risk assessment passed to open the church in September, as it needs a deep clean and a lot of work to empty it, to pass the risk assessment. However, the Church hall is more promising and could be opened by September as long as the Archdeacon approved the risk assessment. There will still be restrictions in place and social distancing will have to be followed. Sunday School will continue on line for now. Thank you to everyone involved in keeping St Catherine's going through the pandemic and in the reopening in the near future. We will share any new information with you as we get it. Diolch yn fawr pawb.
At the beginning of September there have been no further developments regarding the opening of the hall for services. We are still awaiting a response to our application which we submitted to the LMA last month.
Please continue to pray for our vicar Adrian for his full recovery.
A special prayer during the coronavirus pandemic Loving Lord, we commend to your love and care all those who are suffering from the coronavirus throughout the world. Comfort those who have lost a loved one with the illness. Give wisdom to policy makers, skill to the researchers and help to everyone in distress. Bring a sense of calm to us all in these days of uncertainty and distress. This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord who showed compassion to the outcast, acceptance to the rejected and love to those to whom no love was shown. Amen.
