The church’s spiritual welfare is overseen by our Elders:

Pastor
E-mail Rev. Wyn Hughes

I was born and brought up in Llandudno, North Wales. After school I went to Aberystwyth to study at the university there, and being naturally shy, I joined the Christian Union so I didn’t have to go clubbing. Although I attended chapel throughout my childhood, I was not a Christian and I felt uncomfortable when I thought of my own sin and rebellion towards God. Nevertheless in God’s mercy, after experiencing conviction of sin, Christ drew me to Himself and I accepted Him as my Lord and Saviour, experiencing the assurance of sins forgiven.

After finishing my degree, I became a geography teacher in the Rhymney Valley. It was at that time, while I was teaching that I increasingly felt called to the ministry. So I left teaching and trained at the London Theological Seminary. I accepted a call to be the pastor of a church in Caergwle, North Wales, where I was for 5 years. Then I was called to be the minster here in the Heath Evangelical Church, where I started work in January 2005.

Pastoral Care

I was born in 1944 not far from the church and was sent to the Sunday School there, although my parents were not members. I was converted through the youth works in 1960 and became a church member in 1965.

I married Kate in 1971 and we have four children. I worked in NHS management for over thirty years, taking early retirement in 1995. Since then I have been working for the church, mainly in pastoral visiting.

Wyn Evans

Elder

Someone I used to work with once said to me, “As a reasonably intelligent human being (!) I find it very hard to believe that you can take God so seriously or believe that the Bible is true!” Well, I can honestly tell you that there was a time in my life when I did not take God seriously or care very much whether the Bible was true or not… Read his testimony here

Steve Johnson

Elder

Attending chapel was a normal part of my childhood. We usefully learnt about right and wrong from Bible stories and teachings. I enjoyed mixing with some lovely people. In school I was capable enough to compete and be regarded as good. Out of school I thrived in scouting where first at Miskin then at Llantwit Fardre … Read his testimony here

Elder

“My hope of heaven is sure”

I was fortunate enough to be born into a church-going family.  What’s more, the Gospel was preached at that church and I was taught the Bible at Sunday School and in youth meetings.  When I left school, I went to university 200 miles from home.  Life was full – study, sport and socializing.  I rarely attended a church… Read his testimony here

Dr Paul Tench

Elder

Born in 1942, brought up in a good, Christian family in Weston-super-Mare. We went to church three times on a Sunday – morning and evening services and Sunday School in the afternoon for the children. I am the eldest of four, but also the shiest and least confident in public. So painfully shy that my parents worried … Read his testimony here
