The Rectorial Benefice of Upper Ebbw Valleys

Welcome to the website of the Rectorial Benefice of the Upper Ebbw Valleys, which includes Christ Church (Ebbw Vale), Holy Trinity & St Anne’s (Nantyglo), St David’s (Beaufort), St Paul’s (Cwm) and St Peter’s (Blaina).
We are, first and foremost, disciples of Jesus Christ; making our Christian Journey with God’s help and guidance.
We are deeply interested in a Bible-based Christianity; and keenly aware that different Christians may have different interpretations of the Bible and different experiences of the Christian faith. This is why we are seeking to build communities of love, where differences can be celebrated and enjoyed and where we can serve each other within a loving atmosphere.
Consequently, our congregations have varying experiences of many parts of God’s Vine, together with life time committed Anglicans as well as those new to the faith, without previous denominational affiliation.
We are a Rectorial Benefice in the Deanery of Pontypool, with five churches, serving the northern part of the Diocese of Monmouth, a diocese in the Province of the Church in Wales, which is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
We invite you to explore and enjoy our website.
Yours in Christ,
Rev’d Nick Perry
Team Rector.
