Hope Church, Garnant
Hope Church, a branch church of Swansea Valley Bible Church, was planted in July 2011, and in 2015 bought the former Job Centre in Garnant as a meeting place. Further to the already successful installation of a new roof, a central heating system, and some new double glazing, the Pantyfedwen grant was allocated to the reconfiguration and re-flooring of the main foyer area, which involved the dismantling of some storage cupboards to open up the foyer area, and the screeding and carpeting of that whole area, resulting in an entrance area that is both warm & welcoming.
According to the Pastor of Hope Church, “further to the extensive work carried out over the Spring/Summer of 2017, we were thrilled to be able to officially ‘open’ the building, when the former mayor, Kevin Madge, kindly officiated. Since then, we’ve been able to expand and broaden our various activities in the knowledge that our building is now both welcoming and fully functional. We sincerely thank the Pantyfedwen Foundation for the kind donation towards our Hope Church Renovation".
