Acts has been serving the local community in Tylorstown and the Rhondda since 2008. For a number of years, our journey involved meeting together in houses followed by the upper room in the Rhondda Fach leisure centre and then Tylorstown Primary school hall. Then in December 2011, the Church was challenged to take an offering to purchase the disused Conservative club on the main road to make it our community hub and in the following February, the building was purchased debt free.
Joining a church can mean many things to many people. Some seek out God and community when they feel they have lost their way, or are seeking a deeper purpose, or are looking for a way to connect with their family and cultural identity. But it is our belief that the Church, at its core, is about finding love and beauty through God and God’s work.
At Acts community church, we want to inspire individuals of all ages and backgrounds to bring God into their lives at every moment - moments of joy, moments of despair, and even those moments in between. We are committed to the teachings of Jesus Christ and are here to spread His message with loving patience and kindness.
Statement of faith
We Believe In
The one true God who lives eternally in three persons—the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.
The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God—fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
The dignity of all people, made male and female in God's image to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgement.
The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ—born of the Virgin Mary; truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.
The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.
The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection; his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.
The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God
through faith in Christ.
The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.
The Church, the body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers, given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit's gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love.
The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfil the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost and establish a new heaven and new earth.
To bring transformation to our community
To be a relational community where Jesus is real, relevant and central to life.
To love God
To be love in action.
To be totally committed to unconditionally loving and serving both our God and our community
To equip people for life.
