Rev. Freddy Farías-Palacios,
     Penrallt's new Minister

The Minister

After a period of two years of pastoral vacancy we are now excited to announce the arrival of a new Minister, Rev. Freddy Farías-Palacios, in April 2017. He will be inducted on Saturday 1st April at a special service and will then take on the pastorate of Penrallt Baptist Church. Freddy moves with his wife and 3 grown-up children from Eastern Avenue Baptist Church, Essex, to start his new ministry in Penrallt. Therefore, this is a new and exciting time for us; perhaps a new direction and vision. We are totally reliant on our Saviour to guide us through His plans for us. Come and see.

Freddy will be supported by a diaconate of seven deacons, each with a specific area of responsibility, and Magnus, our Administrator.


The Deacons

Each of our deacons is elected by and from the church membership and is principally responsible for the oversight of one area of church life:
