Pontypridd Ministry Area Ardal Weinidogaeth Pontypridd
One Church across multiple locations Bringing people home to Jesus
One Church, multiple buildings transforming life for an awesome God!
We all feel like we need to belong somewhere. Sadly, so many people feel like church isn't for them, or we feel like we would never fit in, so we don't even try.
We want to let you know that you belong here at the Pontypridd Ministry Area. We are made up of all sorts of people, of all ages, all sorts of backgrounds and with different experiences of life; but we consider ourselves a family - God's family; and there is always room for one more. We believe that God is reaching out to all people through Jesus - it doesn't matter who you are or what you have done in the past, He wants you to know him today. We believe that Jesus is good news and promises to meet us when we aren't sure where to turn. We believe that there is more to life than working to reach the weekend, and that God has bigger and better plans in store for us. We believe in God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; and that no one is written off from His family. That includes you.
so...CAN I COME TO CHURCH..?
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, straight or both, filthy rich, dirt poor or just about average. We especially welcome those who are crying new-borns, energetic toddlers, hyperactive grannies and everything in between.
We welcome you if you can sing like Pavarotti or like many of us can’t carry a note in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re just browsing, just woke up, or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury, or haven’t been in church since baby Dai's baptism.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome tired mums, rugby fanatical dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegans, and junk-food eaters.
We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted, and those who have come a long way from what they once were but know they still have a way-to-go. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like 'organised religion', we’ve been there too!
If you blew all your offering money at the bookies, you're welcome here. If you made your fortune on the stock market, you are too.
We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell (like the Vicar!), or because Nan has come to visit and wanted to go to church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost on the A470 and wound up in the Ministry Area by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts … We welcomeyou!
