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.
There are services held in church every week on Sundays.
We have an active junior church for young people who meet at the same time as the service.
We also meet during the week for prayer, bible teaching and social events.
Services in 2020
Due to the situation caused by the corona virus all services and midweek gatherings in church have been cancelled until further notice.
However the Church of God is the Family of God and, in spite of all that is going on in the world, the Lord still reigns on high and is worthy of our praise and worship.
As the world continues to get darker, we as God's people need to shine His light that much brighter and not become fearful and intimidated by what we see and hear around us. Amen and amen!
A message from the vicar
Due to the coronavirus pandemic in order to avoid unnecessary social contact as directed by government advice, we have been directed by the Bench of Bishops to suspend public worship and all church meetings until further notice. Any baptisms should not take place in the presence of more than ten people. All weddings before 31 July are postponed, unless for pressing pastoral reasons, and then they are only to take place in the presence of ten people. There are to be no funerals held in church, but only at the graveside. These may seem like draconian measures, but they are in to place to help us protect each other from this rampant virus. I hope that all of us will give each other mutual comfort and support by keeping in touch by means of a telephone call or going on online. Please be good Samaritans by giving special support to lonely, elderly and vulnerable neighbours. If you are aware of any urgent need that calls for my assistance, please inform me directly by either contacting me on 01269 822275 or by sending me a message to my personal email, firstname.lastname@example.org. This message will be updated as appropriate.
With love and prayers,
P.S. As we are not able to meet together to worship, a sermon meditation for next Sunday will be found on the SERMON MEDITATION page on this website.
Update on 26 March 2020
The coronavirus crisis has now deepened and we find that the country is in virtual lockdown. Weddings and baptisms are cancelled and all church buildings are now closed and no one, not even the priest, is allowed to enter. However, we must all remember that Jesus Christ cannot be locked away in a building and is alive and active in the world, sustaining and comforting those who suffer.
I personally have been very encouraged by offers of practical support from many of you and even from strangers from other churches. For instance, two couples from Swansea Valley Bible Church, offered me any sort of assistance that I needed.
I am also delighted that many of you are maintaining our fellowship by telephone or email. Another way to keep in touch is by sending a card or a brief letter to encourage and comfort the elderly, such as Margaret Peters. During these difficult times let us continue to embrace each other in love.
A special prayer during the coronavirus pandemic.
Loving Father, we commend to your love those who are suffering due to coronavirus, and those who care for them. Comfort those who mourn the loss of loved ones who have died as a result of this disease. Give us all a sense of peace and calm in these days of uncertainty and distress; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
