What time does church start?

Our Sunday Gatherings are at 10.30am (Doors open at 10am), and 6:00pm (Doors open at 5:30pm).

Where is the church?

We are located at 281 Cardiff Road, Aberaman CF44 6YA.

What should you wear?

Most people dress casually – but feel free to wear what you like!

Where can you park?

There is limited free parking on local roads, and a small free car park in the area. Buses and trains are also easily accessible – see our travel page for more info.

What should you expect?

When you come in you will be welcomed by our host team. During our morning gatherings, you can register your children into Kids Zone, our group for children in primary school. There will be some singing, a short Bible-based talk and a chance to be prayed with if you would like. You are very welcome to just come in and watch what is going on if you would prefer and engage as much as you like.

Do you have any events for newcomers?

From January 19th 2017 we will be running Alpha every two weeks at Costa Coffee Aberdare to give those who are new a chance to find out more.

What happens during a gathering?

Our gatherings are introduced by one of our church leaders and start with a time of celebration and sung worship. This normally lasts 20-25 minutes. All the words are on the screens so you can sing along if you would like to. There is no pressure to do that and you should feel free to engage at your own pace, even if that means not singing at all.

What about my kids?

We have supervised kids groups for children from nursery school age to school year 6 during our 10.30am service. You can register your children at the entrance before the service and there will be kids team helpers to talk to with any questions. There is a dedicated space with toys for parents with babies to sit in with.
