CROESO ~ WELCOME. We are one church in the parish of Pontypridd, about 10 miles north of Cardiff city centre. Our parish life, worship and mission brings a mix of traditional and contemporary approaches.
We’ve been doing church differently since lockdown. We are restarting two of our weekly services in September, our Sunday 8am and Wednesday 10.15am will meet in the church. Even though social distancing will be in place, you’ll find a warm welcome!
Our 11am Sunday service will continue to meet online for music, prayers and bible teaching. Do join us by logging into Zoom using these codes:

**We hope to get our community work up and running again soon.**
CONNECT is our hub of mission operating out of our renovated church hall for children’s and adult groups, our community cafe and hiring of rooms. To find out more, please visit click here
As Pontypridd is a University town, students are welcomed to take as much of a role as they feel is right for them. Students are welcome to help in leading Sunday worship, or joining with midweek groups or getting involved with Street Pastors or Foodbank.
We make an effort to help students connect with local people to help them settle into the town if that is what they might like, and we are always happy to support people looking to know more about the Christian faith or who are facing their own challenges.
Pontypridd Parish is a registered charity, no 1165251 and our parish website is http://pontypriddparish.wales
St Catherine’s Church, Gelliwastad Grove, Pontypridd CF37 2BS. We are the church half way between the train station and the bus station, the one with the clock tower and tall spire.
Over recent years we’ve felt inspired to shape our church life around the message from the Old Testament book of Isaiah, chapter 61 where we sense that the Spirit of the Lord is upon us to proclaim good news into the brokenness of the community. We think of ourselves as Living and Proclaiming God’s Restoring Love, with a keen desire to link up with other local churches in to seek oneness in our shared witness.
