The Parish of Merthyr Tydfil is an Anglican Christian Church and is part of the Llandaff Diocese within The Church in Wales. We believe in one God who is the Creator of everything and who came to earth and lived as a human being in His Son Jesus Christ. Up until Jesus was born human beings relied on people called prophets to tell them what God was like and what God wanted. Sometimes their message wasn’t easy to understand but Jesus made it all very clear. He told us and showed us that God was a loving, caring, healing, forgiving God who knew the right way for each person, as an individual, to live. God the Father knows each of us by name and He loves us.

As a Christian Community we try to respond to God the Father through His Son Jesus Christ and get to know Him better and therefore become more able to do what He desires for us.

Our Mission

For 2000 years the Church has been telling the story of Jesus to each new generation. Our Mission is to tell His story to the next generation in a way that keeps integrity with the past and speaks to the future. Our Mission Statement is “Showing God's heart and telling His story to all generations.”

Our Fellowship

One thing that the Christian Church is good at is fellowship. People from all walks of life coming together with the common aim of getting to know God and each other better. This is done in three ways: through our regular gathering at church services, through our social activities and through our community and charity work. Please take a look at our News section for all our recent activities and follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with what's happening.
