Church plant breathes new life into closed Caerphilly church
A Caerphilly church, closed for two years, is set to be reborn as a thriving church plant and community hub. The project will be led by Citizen Church Cardiff and Caerphilly and Aber Valley Ministry Area and is due to be complete early next year.
St Peter's Church Senghenydd was identified as location due to the church being closed for two years. Being on a main road and bus route, the church is seen by hundreds of people everyday and is a perfect location for renewal. The Location Minister leading the revitalisation is Charis Britton from Citizen Church. She says,
The aim is to be a community space where people feel safe and welcome and a church community for those who don’t currently go to church.
Timescales and funding is currently being discussed and more details will be shared on our website. In the meantime, if you have any questions please email email@example.com
You can hear more about the plans for St Peter's by listening to BBC Radio 4 Sunday Worship from Senghenydd with Bishop June Osborne and Mark Greenaway-Robbins from Diocese of Llandaff and Charis Britton and Ryan Forey from Citizen Church.
Citizen Church Cardiff is part of the HTB network, and is a plant from Holy Trinity Brompton and Harbour Church Portsmouth. Citizen Church's mission has been made possible by the Diocese of Llandaff Young Faith Matters project which was awarded £3M from theChurch in Wales Evangelism Fund.
