About Us


The Baptist Union of Wales exists to promote the Christian faith within Wales. We are Union of Associations working across the breadth of Wales among some 400 churches serving both Welsh and English speaking communities in villages, towns and cities across Wales. We believe that the love of God ultimately expressed through Jesus has the power to transform individual lives, whole communities and the life of our nation.
