Who We Are
The Presbyterian Church of Wales is one of the largest Christian denominations in Wales, with some 20,000 members and around 600 churches . Our aim is to worship God and to spread the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Also known as the Calvinistic Methodist Church and 'The Connexion', the Presbyterian Church of Wales was born out of the Methodist revival of the 18th century.
The Presbyterian Church of Wales has around 45 ministers and 30 Christian workers. It also owns and runs two training centres, Coleg y Bala and Coleg Trefeca, and has strong links with other church and denominations, particularly with its 'daughter' church, the Presbyterian Church of India.
Around two-thirds of our churches worship and work through the medium of Welsh and our central administration is run on a bilingual basis.
Every 5 years we support the Christian Aid Appeal. In 2017 we are supporting the Typhoon of Love Appeal.
The Presbyterian Church of Wales is a charity registered with the Charity Commission (charity number 1132022).
