Welcome to Gweini

Release of the Evangelical Alliance Wales - Gweini Manifesto for the 2016 National Assembly elections

This extensive Manifesto covers 31 policy areas of concern to Wales. It has been produced with input from acknowledged experts in the field, and with hundreds of evangelical Christians across Wales. It offers numerous insights into the way that classic evangelical themes, such as a concern for social justice, community life, and inclusion of the marginalised can be worked into practical policies for the good of all in Wales. Overall, it demonstrates that evangelical Christians have a vital role to play in the development of our Nation.

The Manifesto should be read in tandem with Evangelical Alliance's Faith in Politics? report, published in February 2015. This UK-wide report - which received excellent media coverage - was drawn from a survey of over 2,000 evangelical Christians in August-September 2014 and examines evangelical political engagement in detail. It shows, among other things, the breadth of evangelical concern, covering issues such as religious liberty, human trafficking, equality and the alleviation of poverty. The Manifesto undergirds, confirms and extrapolates upon this report. To read the Manifesto online, click here​ or download the PDF here.

Power of Ten

Power of Ten by Gethin Russell-Jones (2013)New book shows how Christian collaborations are changing the face of Wales

This book tells the stories of ten partnerships between “compassion ministries” and local churches to serve their local communities. If you want to see your church reach out effectively to people living around it, this book will give you some great ideas to take that vision forward.

Prospects: How we can help you?

Prospects... Access to Life (logo)Prospects is a Christian organisation which enables and values people with learning disabilities to live their lives to the full.

Caring can be fun but exhausting.  As your child reaches adolescence you are aware that school and other children services will come to an end which may add to your worries.  Maybe you have organised all your adult child’s activities for years not knowing that you can have help. You may want some advice regarding church inclusion and bringing your child to faith.
