What to Expect

Who are we and what can you expect if you visit us one Sunday?


Connect Life is a church that loves people and loves helping them to find and follow Jesus. We are local church of about 100 people who attend from Caerphilly and the wider area. We are part of the Elim Pentecostal group of churches with over 500 churches in the UK and also part of the Evangelical Alliance. For those of you who are new to church this will probably not be that important to you, so the important thing you need to know is you are welcome to join us! You may have a strong faith or unsure of what you believe. That’s just fine with us, just come and enjoy getting to know us and hopefully we can help you on the journey.


Our main Service is every Sunday at 10:30am and we are located on Crescent Road, Caerphilly CF83 1AB. Due to the current COVOD-19 restrictions we are meeting each Sunday but our space is limited dues to social distancing and so we have a maximum of 55-65 seat available depending on family groups. If you are visitor and would still like to attend then we would love to welcome you but need to book you in. So, if that is you, then please contact us via our contact form with your details and we will get back you with booking information.
There is usually plenty of parking spaces on Crescent Road Caerphilly Castle Car Park.


Connect Life is a church for everyone. We encourage people to come as they are and dress in what feels most comfortable. For some of our church that’s a suit and tie but others come in jeans and tee shirts. What you wear is really not important to us, so come as you feel comfortable.


When you arrive, you can expect a warm and friendly environment. You will get a friendly welcome at the door and if you are new and don’t know where things are then just let someone know. Due to current restrictions face masks must be worn during the service and your seat will be labelled with your name so you know it a safe place to sit.  We are available to serve you throughout your entire visit. To make sure we get you to your seek please arrive 5 or 10 minutes before the service starts. if you are a bit late, don’t worry just come on in and we will direct you to your seat. Currently we have suspended our kids provision but hope to be able to restart this soon.


Our services are engaging, relevant and Jesus-centered. You can check out our services on our Facebook page or on YouTube and this will give you some idea of what the service is like. That said our Facebook feed is not the same as experiencing church live! Service begins with a  time of contemporary music by our worship band. We normally stand to sing and the words come up on the screens at the front of church. Feel free to join in or just listen, you can stand or sit. We often give out some church information during the service and because we are “family” we may take a few minutes to greet each other. Sometimes we take communion together (bread and wine) it is simple reminder to us as Christians as to what Jesus has done for us. You will be offered this in your seat but you are free to pass on this part of the service. We nearly always have a time of practical Bible-based teaching (the sermon). Our services close with a brief time to respond to God in both worship and prayer. The entire service lasts about 1 hour and 15 to 30 minutes. Our main Sunday service is designed for youth and adults.


CURRENTLY SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID 19 but hopefully this will back soon! We are working to restart our Childrens work soon (updated June 2021) but children are welcome and we have an cafe area where children can be taken if they need some space and there is a TV so you can watch the service whilst the kids can relax. 


Kids have there own activities as part of the service. From infants to age 12. We are constantly trying to improve our kids activity and we hope that they can have fun while learning about Jesus in an environment designed for their age group. We have created a safe environment for them through trained leaders and all our adult leaders are DBS checked.
