Hebron Welsh Night

We were pleased to welcome Adrian Brake from Carmarthen Evangelical Church to our annual Welsh Night on Thursday 7th March. He spoke to us about the life of John Pugh (1846-1907), a courageous minister who was involved in planting many churches in industrial South Wales, many of which still have large congregations today.

In 1872, he held a meeting under the Town Clock in Tredegar. He began his sermon with the words, “Boys, they tell me that you are an awful set here, and that you were in the habit of throwing rotten eggs and mud at a dear old minister who used to stand up here and tell you of Jesus and his love. I am not afraid of anyone in this crowd…” After nine years in Tredegar, his church congregation had grown from 16 to more than 400 members.

Hebron Welsh Night 2019

Hebron Welsh Night

Our annual “Welsh Night” will be held on Thursday, 7th March at 7:30pm. Adrian Brake will give a talk on “Preaching Christ in the Marketplace: John Pugh and the Story of the Forward Movement”.

John Pugh had been a pastor in our nearby town of Tredegar for nine years before erecting a tent in Cardiff as a means of establishing a new Calvinistic Methodist church. This marked the beginning of the Forward Movement in Wales.

Hebron’s Welsh Night is an annual service on or around St. David’s Day, presenting a different topic from Welsh church history. The service is conducted in English. Afterwards there will be refreshments and traditional Welsh treats: pikelets, Welsh cakes and bara brith. This is a free event and everyone is welcome to attend.

Christmas

Christmas 2018

Do you enjoy Christmas? It’s a time for family and giving. It’s a time for promoting peace in world. But have you considered its Christian origins? As we put up our Christmas lights, we’re reminded of the light that God sent into the world. As we exchange gifts, we’re reminded of God’s gift to the world, when Jesus was born into the human race. To receive Him is to receive the greatest gift of all. Join us and find out more.
