Brackla Tabernacle is located in a large housing development in the town of Bridgend. Our Church community consists of all age groups, with a contemporary approach to both worship and community activities. We are a group of people from many walks of life who enjoy a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. As a local church we are a part of the Apostolic Church UK: a network of churches in the United Kingdom.
Our Church began in the 1930’s and has moved physical location many times throughout its life. In 1997 the Church relocated to it’s new purpose-built premises in the hub of Brackla, at one point, the largest private residential housing estate in Europe.
Since November 2014, we have been using the Main Hall of Archbishop McGrath High School, which is adjacent to our Church Building, as the venue for our morning Church gatherings. Both the School’s Sports Hall and rooms within our Church Building are now utilised for Children activities that run on Sunday mornings.
Since September 2017 we have gathered over two identical services on Sunday mornings: 9.30am and 11.30am. These duplicate services allow us to increase our meeting capacity, so that more people can know the welcome, warmth and friendship that comes from this Church family. We would love for you to join us and journey with us to discover, know and love Jesus Christ.
For a period, from May 2019, we commence an ‘all in’ season on Sunday mornings: everyone ‘all in’ for one morning gathering at 10.30am. This is in response to what we have on our heart as a Church, the transformation of our County with the love of Jesus. As such, on Sunday evenings we gather in Pencoed and in the Llynfi, Garw and Ogmore Valleys. Our current plan is to revert to two morning services from March 2020.
We work closely with many of the other churches in the town and as part of the Apostolic Church UK are a member body of the Evangelical Alliance and Affinity.
Our desire is to be a place, community and family where God is known
We aim to achieve this vision by committing ourselves to these three principles:
Everything we do, we do for the glory of God
Everything we do, we do for those who have not yet come through our doors
Everything we do, we do to build this community where everyone flourishes
