Our Mission

The Churches of Pyle and Kenfig are passionate about sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with our community. This is something the two churches have been doing for more than a thousand years. We believe that the love of God in His Son Jesus Christ is crucial for us and the community in which we live. Please join us as we make our daily journey with Jesus. 

Area Ministry

In the same way that Jesus worked in a team, Ministry Areas are a return to a more collaborative way of working to enable God’s people to work together effectively and creatively for church growth. By creating Ministry Areas we establish a stronger Christian presence in our communities that will enable us collectively to do more, today and into the future.

MINISTRY AREAS ARE LARGE PARISHES LED BY A TEAM OF CLERGY AND LAY PEOPLE WHO DRAW ON EACH OTHER’S STRENGTHS TO IN-CREASE THE IMPACT OF THE MESSAGE OF JESUS.

Ministry Areas are the next and most important part of delivering our strategic vision Where Faith Matters. Our joyful story is one where together we respond to God’s call to grow the Kingdom of God. To-ether we have more resources - people, finances, wisdom, buildings, to successfully build our capacity for doing good and seek new opportunities for spreading God’s Word by ministry and evangelism.

Safeguarding Officer

Food Bank

There are baskets at both churches, in the porch. We are trying to make a difference in the lives of parishioners who cannot even manage to buy the basics for themselves and their families.

We have been collecting food for several years, so that you know that if ever you feel you can help then there is always a basket for you to deposit your food in.

Together we can make a difference.

Diocesan Conference

At the Diocesan Conference on Saturday 26th of October it was announced that on 31st of December 2021, at the very latest, the Parish of Pyle and Kenfig will cease to be an independent parish. It will be put into the larger area ministry of Porthcawl, Margam, Pyle with Kenfig and Kenfig Hill. More details will follow. 

Mothers Union

After advice from Mary Sumner House and the Diocese, all Mothers Union Events in the Parish are suspended. 

Gift Aid

This is a way of increasing your giving by 25% without it costing you a penny. If you pay tax, then have a word with one of the Wardens. It is a simple matter of signing a form, and then when you put in your collection envelope, the Government adds 25% without it costing you anything. 

Motor Neurone Group

As you know John and Sue Roberts have raised thousands of pounds to fight this disease and give support to those who are suffering from it. They are now selling royal mail stamps, to raise some funds. So please support them. 

Lay Ministry Group

I am very grateful to those who feel called to be part of the ministry in the churches. Many people tell me how much they appreciate their input. Thank you for your support and prayers. I feel that all they do is such a blessing.
