Church on the Rise is a Baptist Church and we welcome you! Our aim is to worship God and to serve the community in which we live. Our mission is to show the love of God to all who we meet and to tell them of the life changing power of Jesus Christ. Whether you want to know more about being a Christian or are already committed, we invite you to join with us.
For us, the "church" is a group of people trying to live for Jesus Christ, to experience and show to others His love and care, witnessing to the difference that a living faith in God can make to a person's life. We are ordinary people, from all walks of life, who have the same joys and sorrows, cares and concerns that are common to us all. Yet, we believe that God's presence in our lives gives us strength to face these difficulties. The teaching of the Bible and the love and support of this fellowship are all a source of hope and courage through good times and bad.
We have become a distribution centre for the Blaenau Gwent Foodbank part of the Trussell Trust Foodbank network and are open every Wednesday 2pm to 5pm to redeem the red Foodbank vouchers enabling those local families in crisis to receive a 3 day supply of emergency food. We are able to help and support families and possibly signpost them to other agencies who can help such as debt counselling and benefit help etc.
This site has been prepared to introduce ourselves and to give you some idea of the various activities that make up the life of the church. If we can help you in any way, or you would like more information about anything on this site, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
If you have yet to visit Church on the Rise , then do come and join us, either at one of our services or one of the other activities detailed on this site. We look forward to welcoming you.
Kind regards from the Leadership Team.
