What is the Net Cardiff? stars

The Net Cardiff project is an initiative of Evangelical Alliance Wales, This website has been created as part of that project to connect Evangelical churches from across Cardiff. The idea of the website is to provide news, events and important information for those inside and outside the church. We hope you enjoy using it.  

 

TheNetCardiff has been set up as just one way to bring some hope and good news to City of Cardiff. Having been born and brought up in Cardiff I want to see Cardiff as a city of hope and good news and see peoples lives changed and transformed.

 Steve Harris - Coordinator The Net Cardiff

The Net Cardiff will play a key role in the well being of the city. I believe that the people of Cardiff can only benefit from so many churches and organisations working together to serve our communities with the Good News.

Elfed Godding - National Director of Evangelical Alliance Wales

 

Explore the Christian Faith

To be honest with you the best way to find out about church is to visit one!

 

Here are just a few ways you can find out more about the Christian faith 

Your local church

We understand that many people may have had a negative experience of church in the past and we are really sorry if that has been your experience but we would ask you to give church another try.

Many would have you believe that churches are on the way out and is out of date. We would suggest to you that if you take the time to check it out you may be very surprised at what you find.

There are many Evangelical Churches in Cardiff of many of different types from large churches with many hundreds attending there main Sunday service, to small churches with only a few people on a normal sunday. Some will particularly suit those with young familes, other try meet the needs of young people and other for a more mature congregation. Some larger churches even have a variety of service in the day of different types and styles. Some churches are have many nationalities, some feature very modern music others more traditional. The variety is great but what joins them together is a love for God and love for people.

So why not try out a church and if you don't quite feel the first church you visit is the one for you check out some others to see which suits you but most importantly where you feel you can hear God voice into your life. 

This can often be a great place to find out about the Christian faith and Jesus, so check out our listing of local churches in Cardiff that should be able to help you. Find at Church

Help me find a Church in Cardiff

Below is a list of churches that are in some way connected with The Net Cardiff.

How do you choose a church?

Looking for a church can be a bit like choosing a meal from KFC. Most KFC meals contain chicken but they come in various flavours and a whole range of things you can have with it! Sadly some meals can also contain additives that the "Chef" never intended to be part of the menu!

Church can be a bit like that. One of the key things is to make sure Jesus, and the teaching about him found in the Bible, are at the Centre of whatever church you visit, some of the other stuff - like music and service style - is about what you like and what is to your taste. What is also important is how you can be a part of the overall flavour so that others are attracted to Jesus too. Just make sure whatever church you visit has the correct central "ingredient." If you need a bit of help get in contact

(For the theologians amongst you, we know the analogy is not perfect so please don't throw your Bargain Bucket at us - it is a just a way helping people who don't know what church is like to get a flavour of what we are talking about!)

The list below represents churches of many different sizes and styles.

   Some are very traditional in their music or preaching style, others are very contemporary. 

   Some have large congregations of many hundreds attending their main Sunday services, and others are much smaller. 

   Some attract people from all over the city to their services and some have a very local focus. 

Over time we hope to add more information to this section so don't forget to revisit us soon. If you are looking for a church to attend then feel free to contact The Net Cardiff and we will try and help you find a church that will suit you and your needs.

(If details below are incorrect please let us know so we can keep them up to date.)
