Late December 2011, Gary Smith was praying about future ministry when God challenged him about reaching the people of the village of Wenvoe where he and Lesley live. After sharing this with her they presented a vision of a new congregation to the Pastors and Elders of Cardiff City Temple Church who embraced and confirmed this calling and released them to plant Vale Village Church.
September 2012 saw the launch of a new church in Wenvoe with a heart for the Vale of Glamorgan. In addition to a small team of people from Cardiff City Temple, people from the village and surrounding area began to join this exciting new venture.
The church has tried to impact and serve the village using a variety of initiatives including Alpha, an annual free Vale Village Funday in August, supporting a number of key projects in the village and providing resources to the local primary school.
In 2015, Vale Village Church is committed to build community not only amongst its members but also its neighbours. If we can serve you please contact us.
