Church History and Beliefs
Llandrindod Evangelical is an independent church that was formed in 1981. We meet in the old bakery that has been comfortably refurbished to house our congregation. While our church has been blessed with a number of godly ministers in the past, we do not currently have a pastor. A number of deacons serve in our church; and some of our men, along with some visiting speakers, help supply our regular pulpit ministry.
Current Deacons include: Stephen Davies, Rory Johnson, Victor Holmes, Reg Meredith
Our beliefs as a church reflect the doctrines of historic Christianity:
- We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. Every word is true and trustworthy, and it is our only authority for faith and practice.
- We believe the Bible teaches that Salvation is by God’s grace alone through the work of Jesus Christ.
- We believe that worship should be reverent and worthy of God. Our meetings are very straightforward and consist of prayer, hymn singing, Bible reading and preaching.

Directions and Parking
Our church is located just off Middleton Street behind Barclay’s bank in the centre of Llandrindod Wells. You will see our sign on the little lane between the bank and the furniture shop. Generally, there is plenty of parking on either side of Middleton Street on a Sunday or a Wednesday evening. The map below should be a help to you if you are new to the area or visiting. We look forward to your visit.
As a church body, these are the doctrinal beliefs that unite us and we adhere to.
- The Scriptures of Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, being inspired, infallible and inerrant as originally give. As such, they are sole authority in all matters of faith and practice, for what they teach is God’s will for His Church. We believe all that is taught therein, in particular:
We believe in the only true living God, the Holy Trinity of Divine Persons in perfect unity; Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each of whom is co-equal and sovereign in creation, providence and redemption.
We believe in God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who is holy, righteous, full of grace, mercy, compassion and love. In his infinite love He sent forth the Son, that the world through Him might be saved.
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, whose humanity and full deity were mysteriously and really joined in the unity of His divine Person. We believe in His Virgin birth, His perfect life and teaching, His substitutionary, atoning death on the cross, where He triumphed over Satan, sin and death, in His bodily resurrection and ascension into Heaven, where He now sits in glory at the right hand of God, ever living to make intercession for us.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Godhead, whose work is indispensable to regenerate the sinner, lead him to repentance, give him faith in Christ, sanctify him in the present life and fit him to enjoy fellowship with God forever, for spiritual power and effectiveness in worship, witness and work for Christ. His ministry is to the individual Christian and to the whole Church.
We believe that as a result of the fall, all men are sinful by nature. Sin pollutes and controls them, infects every part of their being, renders them guilty in the sight of a holy God, and subject to penalty which, in His wrath and condemnation, He has decreed against it.
We believe that through faith, and only faith, in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose death was a perfect oblation and satisfaction for our sins, the sinner is freely justified by God, who, instead of reckoning to us our sins, reckons Christ’s righteousness to our account. Salvation is therefore, by grace and not by human merit.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will return personally, visibly and gloriously to the earth, to receive His saints to Himself and to be seen of all men. As the righteous Judge, He will divide all men into two, and only two, categories – the saved and the lost. Those whose faith is in Christ will be saved eternally, and will enter into the joy of the Lord, sharing with Him His inheritance in Heaven. The unbelieving will be condemned by Him to Hell, where they will be eternally punished for their sins under the righteous judgement of God.
