About Us

Colin and Sandra Bowring
Our pastors—Colin and Sandra Bowring

We are a group of Christians who live in Caerphilly, a market town at the southern end of the Rhymney Valley in South Wales, 8 miles north of Cardiff. Our land of Wales was ground zero for a mighty outpouring of God's love and transforming power in the early years of the 20th Century, a revival which spread to many parts of the world. Our pastors—Colin and Sandra—are passionate about seeing another visitation of the Lord's Holy Spirit, and seek to enthuse us and share that passion with us whenever we meet.

We meet regularly to worship Jesus, to learn more about Him, and to share fellowship together. You're very welcome to our little corner of the 'net—take the weight off, and be blessed...

Whenever we meet, we worship—i.e. we declare, using songs and spoken word, the greatness of our Lord, and our love for Him. On Sundays, we additionally share bread and wine—the Lord's Supper—in remembrance of His sacrifice.

Our Friday evening meetings will often include some teaching—we endeavour to follow the model set out in 1 Corinthians 14:26:

When you meet together some will sing, another will teach, or tell some special information God has given him, or speak in an unknown language, or tell what someone else is saying who is speaking in the unknown language, but everything that is done must be useful to all, and build them up in the Lord.


Where to find us, and when...

On Sunday mornings, we usually meet at the St John's Ambulance Brigade Hall at around 11am. After the more formal (it really isn't very formal) part of the meeting, we have tea or coffee or squash, and biscuits, and generally finish at about 1pm.

We meet for Friday evening meetings at around 8pm, and usually finish at around 10pm. For information about where this meeting is to be held on any particular Friday, please contact Colin on

About Caerphilly

Medieval Market Town

Caerphilly is a market town which grew around the castle built by Gilbert de Clare (Gilbert the Red) and completed in 1271. The castle is largest in Wales, and second in size only to Windsor Castle in the UK. There was a thriving market in the town through Medieval times, though the castle fell into disrepair. The town grew substantially through the 2nd half of the 19th Century when collieries were developed in the surrounding villages of Bedwas, Llanbradach, Abertridwr and Senghenydd. Successive Marquesses of Bute, owners of the castle and various estates in south Wales, restored the castle through the 19th and early 20th centuries and then gifted it to the nation. It is now managed by CADW, together with many other monuments in Wales.
