A church that loves families
and a church families love

We believe in providing Bible-based teaching that will grow young people in their faith.
We also believe that church needs to be enjoyable for youngsters of all ages if they are to want to build that faith.

At Gilgal our mission statement is "To know Jesus better and to make Him better known". Our philosophy is that we should place Jesus centrally to everything we do, whether that is evangelism, reaching out to the community, or in demonstration of our values to others.

Family friendly ...... meeting their needs

Meeting the needs of the modern, busy family isn't easy. That's why over the next two years we are redeveloping our church to provide a choice of worship styles, better teaching for children and activities the family can enjoy. Why not be part of that?!
You'll find a friendly welcome at Gilgal Baptist Church, from the time you step through the door until you leave after tea and coffee. Our aim is that, whether you are a regular member of the church, new to the church, or just visiting Porthcawl you will take away a true feeling of fellowship and warmth.


We believe that the only way to the Father is through Jesus the Son. Our faith and teaching of scripture reflects this belief and is central to our church life.
The Bible is the written word of God. Studying the Bible is key to having a firm faith and to grow in faith. The Bible sets out the truth for us, teaching us the way to live our lives. Even if you do not read the Bible, its teachings have an effect on your life - our whole legal system is based around the 10 commandments.
Jesus IS ALIVE! yes alive. Jesus conquered sin and death, he died so that we might live. He is the living God who will come again in glory to bring us new eternal life.

Jesus isthe Waythe Truththe Life

Life getting you down? Have that feeling that there has to be more to life than this? Then think about the ALPHA course.

Our mission at Gilgal Baptist Church is "To know Jesus better and to make Him better known". We aim to achieve this through the preaching at the church, by running courses, such as the Alpha Course and by outreach events within the Porthcawl community.
